Chase’s girls have a new style. Lots of curly hair and full, round lips. She is also incorporating some scenery. Oh, and armpits, she’s still adding the armpits. You might be getting one of these in the mail one day soon. While we were in Virginia Beach Chase received a big stack of construction paper and she’s squirreled it away all over the house. She’ll ask if she can draw and then have all her tools out before I can give her an answer. That girl loves to draw.
In other news, things are finally settling down around here again. There was lots of sleeping this week. That might be because of all the travel or it might be because of growth spurts. Ben thought that Avery looked bigger when he got home from work on Tuesday than she had when he put her to bed the night before. It’s possible I suppose. Both girls are logging 14 or 15 hours a day. I say that tonight so that when I’m complaining next week about how they never sleep I’ll have something to hold onto.
I haven’t been doing a great job of writing about all of the new things that Avery can do. Recently she’s started saying two words together. Most of her statements start with MY, MY pony, MY, MY, MY! But she’s putting two words together nonetheless. Everyday she says new words. Last night it was “fork” which sounds decidedly like something other than fork. Today she pinched me and said “cheek” and then “face.” That was after she took her “cuppa” milk and dumped it on the floor. She’s a wild one. It’s kind of cute that when she wakes up in the morning she wants her “cuppa” right away. Me too baby, me too.
