I was sitting on the couch with Julian in my lap the other evening as he nursed. His shirt was pulled up a little bit so that his belly was exposed. He lightly touched his tummy with one finger and then giggled. Totally amused, he did it again and again, giggling away as he nursed. 🙂 It was so cute and his laughter so infectious, I was soon laughing right along with him.
And here I thought it was impossible to tickle yourself. Guess not.

Ava was trying to make ducks out of Legos, like daddy makes. I was in the middle of making dinner and told her I’d help her in a minute, but she figured (figgered) it on her own and was so excited.
Ava: I figgered out how Dada did it! I just figgered and figgered and figgered until I got it right!

Julian was laying across my lap having just finished nursing and hung his head upside-down off my leg to look at Ava, who came over to give him some sisterly “love.”
Me: Ava, don’t pull on his [Julian’s] head please.
Ava: You mean don’t pull OFF his head.
Uh, yeah. That too.
A conversation between Ava and me while I was putting her to bed. I was trying to commend her for her generosity.
Me: “Honey, Santa knew that you were so generous to give away your old doll house to someone who didn’t have one so he brought you the new wooden one.”
Ava: “Santa didn’t know I gave away my farm too. Silly Santa.”
(She got a replacement doll house, but not a replacement farm. That kid, she doesn’t miss anything.)
Lastly – totally unrelated, but something you don’t want to miss – tomorrow is another round of the Bloggy Giveaways carnival. Last time I gave away a Mommy Blogger t-shirt. This time I’m giving away an HP 6.2 MP Digital Camera! Be sure to check back tomorrow for details and to enter to win. 🙂
Also just want to mention that this is a GREAT way to gain some exposure for your blog. And you can give just about anything away (see the official site for rules), so nearly anyone with a blog can participate. Hope you’ll join in! 🙂
