Back By Demand

A certain individual, who will remain unnamed, gets a little testy when I don't update often enough to satisfy their need to fill an over-abundance of free time with writing mostly witty, yet always off-color comments. To this person I have only one thing to say, but I have said it before--please refer to the video you took of me the day after my wedding if clarification is needed.

Moving on....

Ava had her dance recital last week. It was much better than I had anticipated. She actually danced and that's all I could really hope for. They did a tap number and a ballet number. It was cute and I was glad that I had put her in dance after all.
It's been nice to get outside. I guess we actually lived through the winter. Ava thinks she is old enough to go outside without any adult supervision now. She is wrong. She is allowed to go out on the porch where I can see her. Sometimes this is enough for her; other times she lets me know she is not happy with the situation-by pouting on the grass. But I just think it's funny.
And she climbed a tree for the first time. Actually she was lifted into the tree by her father. Same thing, right?

Last night I was leaving for my excercise class and Ava called out the window as I walked away, "Bye Mama. Come back if you need me. Watch out for alligators." Not bad advice.

Moses likes to eat.

He likes to dance with his sister.
He likes to make us laugh. He loves to clap for himself.

He likes to help his mama.

He is really good at being cute.
His father likes to brush out his hair to see how big it can get. We're so proud.
My baby boy will be one in a week. I can't believe it. How did I ever live without him?

Those pics are great.

I have seen the video you are talking about. It looks like you are saying the words vacuum, or something along those lines. Since I can't hear what you are saying, I just am reading your lips. Why you would say vacuum is beyond me.

After looking at the pictures again, I want to know who makes the waffles. We eat a lot of waffles in this house. The waffle Moses is eating is perfectly brown and appears to have no holes. That means the amount of batter that was poured into the waffle maker was fairly close to the exact amount needed. Kudos to the waffle maker for using the correct amount and cooking it to correct color.

The pictures are great! I don't recall the video at all but I think what you were saying, contrary to popular belief, was Electrolux,or Hoover or Oreck.

Don't know for sure though.
