Avrie learned a new word last night...bowl. I noticed her pointing to things and shaking her head "no" today. And I'm fairly certain she's got that ("dat") down but I'm not positive. She isn't walking yet but she did take one step today before she fell. She was so excited that she hopped right back up and jumped off both feet and landed on all fours with a gleeful shout. It was hysterical. We've been enjoying the AC today but did run a few errands this morning and went to the library this afternoon. Talk about sixth sense...I made Evan some cookies this afternoon and told Nolan he could try one if he wanted but that they had owwie flour in them. He took a tiny, tiny bite and decided owwies weren't worth it. It's as if his body knew it wasn't good for him. Here's Avrie enjoying some 83% Swiss dark chocolate. My kids have no idea what Hershey's is!!
