Our dog Cooper, loves to be in the middle of everything. He sleeps in some pretty bad spots. I was working in the kitchen the other day and practically broke my arm when I tripped over him. He didn't even move out of the way just laid there hoping I wouldn't yell at him.
Andrew is working on his Science Fair project. He is doing an experiment to see how friction affects speed. He got his racetrack set up and Ava wanted to help him. It was really cute to see her so interested in what Andrew is doing.
Ava and Cooper are becoming best buds. Cooper knows that Ava will feed him when in her high chair and she will keep Cooper company when everyone else is busy. This is Avas favorite seat in the house...
The other day, we were all supposed to be cleaning the house, well we couldn't find Trevor (typical), well I went to put something away in Avas room, and I found Trevor reading a book to Ava. It was sooo cute. Now don't get me wrong, the boys love to read to Ava and she will read to them also, but this was just so cute how the 2 of them were.
On Sunday, our church told our youth to dress up for the Bears game. Well Ava has a cute cheerleading outfit, so I had her wear hers to church. After church Ava decided to show us a few of her cheerleading moves she has been working on. Here she is showing us "table", she showed us flamingo, and she does a really great somersault. I only got her table as a picture I took a video of the others.
Now that Ava has been home with us for 8 months there are some things I am wondering about....
Will Ava be left handed or right handed? With the boys, I just naturally gave everything to them in the right hand and now they are all right handed. With Ava, she definately does things with both hands, soooo should I let her decided which hand to use, or do I try and lean her to one hand or the other? I guess I really don't have a preference here, just wondering.
finally, we played with Play dough. She did great with not eating it, but she wasn't to sure what to do with it all. She liked putting it in the container and taking it out and puting the lid on the best. I guess that is why we call her our type A personality child. She loves to clean and be clean. So like Tom, totally not like me!
