Funny Avery

well, I am not sure where the cable is to offload pictures from my camera, so more pics will have to come at a later date. I just wanted to take a minute to write down a few of the funny things Avery has been saying latey so I won't forget. She has been hilarious the past few weeks and one thing she says a lot is "I NEED to ____" (fill in the blank).
For example, "I NEED to eat some Cheerios right now."
"I NEED to wear my lello (yellow) panties today!"
"I NEED to watch a movie right now!"
Where did she get that?
Another thing is she cracks me up when she talks in compelete sentences.
I will ask her, "Do you want oatmeal for breakfast?"
Response: "Yes, I do want oatmeal for breakfast!"
Question: "Do you want to play upstairs now?"
Response: "No, I do not want to play upstairs now."
A simple yes or no would do, but she usually repeats the whole sentence back to me. Cracks me up! One more thing I cannot forget...When we say our prayers at night, she has gotten pretty good at saying her own things without having to repeat after me. So I get her started with "Dear Lord..." and this is her newest phrase after we bless our family members..."...and bless Mickey Mouse, Little Lamb, and Stinky Dee-Dee." The first time she said this I burst out laughing... I just couldn't help it, so now she laughs everytime she says this. As serious as I try to make prayer time, it's so hilarious! For those of you who may not know, Mickey Mouse is one of her stuffed animals that someone gave her that she just recently right before we moved got really attached to. Maybe because all her other toys were packed in the truck, but anyway, he goes everywhere with her and she always sleeps with him. Little Lamb is a lamb beanie baby with a purple tutu on that Grandma gave her and she has been attached to her since around the time she turned two. And if you don't know who Dee-Dee is, then you have not met Avery! Dee-Dee is her purple blanket she has slept with since she was like 4 months old and it usually stinks since she has it around her mouth so sometimes we call it "Stinky Dee-Dee." I realize not many of you have made it this far down the post and stopped reading a while back, but if I did not record all of this, I would soon forget! Thanks for those who stuck it out!! :)
