the girls :: a freeze frame

Avery is about to turn 3, Eliza is 15 months. I felt the need to jot down some things worth remembering.

-Talks all the time, narrarates my every move.
-Goes to school three days a week in the mornings.
-Still into presidents, mainly Abe and George.

Eliza Page

-15 months old.
-50% for weight and 90% for height.
-Does not like milk, at all.
-Eats anything, even spicy stuff like salsa.
-Dances by pulling back her right arm and turning in a circle.
-Flips out, in a good way, when the ice cream man drives by.
-Tickles everything.
-Babbles a lot.
-Takes care of her baby doll, feeding her goldfish and patting her back.
-Climbs with total disregard for how she'll get down.
-Does not like when Avery goes to school.
-Obsessed with her big sister, and her toys too.

-Enjoys the zoo, especially the giraffes.
-Loves to snuggle mom before bed.
-Makes me melt with her beautiful blue eyes.

Ladies- Your mom is so proud of you both, and can't think of any better way to spend her days than chasing your around New Orleans. You keep me busy, and I sleep hard at night as a result. I have full confidence that as the years go by, you'll become one another's best friend. Don't forget about #3, she'll need the same outpouring of love that you give each other daily. And don't worry, I'll be there to take pictures.
