Avery takes care of her little sister. She likes to play all her favorite games with Evelyn. So far we’ve seen patty-cake, head shoulders knees and toes, and today the spelling game. Avery likes to spell her name, “daddy,” and sometimes “mommy.” It goes like this:
Then she immediately goes on to “Deeeee” for Daddy. Today she was sitting in front of Evelyn’s bouncy chair and this is what I heard:
“A….. V….. R….. Y….. Abry! D….. R…. Y….. Emen (Evelyn)”
Then she repeated it so Evelyn would remember. Apparently Evelyn is spelled D-R-Y, which is a little ironic since dry is something she rarely is.
About two seconds later Avery was giving Evelyn a kiss when Evelyn spit up. Avery looked down at her and said “eeewww” and then went into the kitchen and came back with a kleenex to wipe Evelyn’s “nose.” She was very thorough about it too, making sure she told Evelyn to blow and then blow again (“gin” said very seriously).
