Miss Waverly Maye. There are so many things about her vocabulary that I love so much, and that I know I should correct her on, but my heart just wants her to do them forever. Anytime she is talking to both me & my husband she says “you twos” instead of you two, apparently she is a Jersey girl! 🙂 She calls herself “me”, and says “mama, is me big” or “did me be a good girl today”, and calls the aquarium (which she loves), the “aquariarium”. She sings everything, especially when she knows she is in trouble, and insists on performing a dance recital at least once a day. She changes outfits hourly, packs an entire bag of random stuff any time we leave the house, and has to (like really has to) match Avalon’s pajamas each and every single night. Thunder petrifies her and she comes into our bed every morning around 5:30, she never misses an opportunity.
Sweet Avalon Elle. She has so many little faces and habits right now that just melt me. She does them so often that I just feel like it’s part of her and that she will do it forever, but I look back on Waverly from that age and know that she won’t. She has this little face where she purses her lips together, and anytime she sits down on a couch or bed, she leans back into it with everything she has. When she wants something, she stands at your feet and opens & closes her hands, and puts her head straight into my shoulder anytime we see a stranger or walk into anywhere new. She smiles ALL the time, especially when she hears music, and playing peekaboo with her big sister can give her the biggest belly laughs. She calls her daddy “DA!!”, says “please” with a lisp, and anytime she sees a camera, she immediately says “CHEESE!” (love her so much!). She hates the vacuum and we are impressed if she lasts ten minutes in a high chair, she has a little baby bunny that I got randomly at H&M for 12 dollars and she is obsessed with it, it doesn’t leave her sight.
And a few pictures from our weekend, we are soaking in these final days for summer for all that their worth.
