Avery has quite the little imagination. Ivan is still Grandpa Steve, although not as often as he used to be. Pooh is still “Daddy” and dolly is still “Baby.” I am fairly regularly “Dory.” Today in church I left with Evelyn to because she was fussy and heard “Where Dory goin'” on the way out.
Today at prayer time Avery had her baby say the prayer. She folded baby’s arms and then prompted her to say “Fadder, Thank you day, Bless Daddy come home. Name Jesus Christ, Amen!” She even paused for a minute before the “Amen” so that baby could say it on her own. Then she picked up baby, turned her around and said “Good job, baby!” and gave her a hug.
Today her little family needed to go for a walk. Here’s what it looked like:
She’s feeding “daddy.” She picks up “food” and gives it to whoever happens to be available. Ivan helped her strap the stuffed animals in and she pushed them down the hall and back. It was a good walk.
Her other favorite thing the last few days has been the computer that Ivan made her out of some paper and a cardboard box. She “types” on it and skypes Grandma. She goes to “check Grandma a line” (check if Grandma’s online) and then has conversations with her Aunts and Uncles.
“Hi Gramma! Cair Bear there? What Cair Bear? Why?”
All this to a piece of paper stuck to some cardboard. It’s the most hilarious thing. The other day she got so engrossed that she fell off her stool and we spent five minutes calming her down.
