Ava's prayer last night.
"Help me to not be afraid of the dark. Help me to not go under the water. Help my Mommy and Daddy to not throw away all my toys. Help me to be taller so I can reach stuff like the lights and the sky. That's all."

"Oh Tap, I just love you. You're like a live stuffed animal that poops."     ~Donald

Jaina is a little daredevil. She climbs on and gets into everything.  She's talking more...I think she says "all done" and "thank you" but they sound the same. Kind of like "da doo." She shakes her head yes and no and usually at the appropriate times. For example, when she's done eating and I ask her if she's all done, she shakes her head yes. When I ask her if she wants more, she shakes her head no. She waves and says "hi" clear as day. I'm amazed at how much she understands. She's snugly and loves her bed. Boy, does she have a temper!! She lays down and bangs her head on the floor when she doesn't get her way. We've been working on her animal sounds. She's got kitty and doggy down...working on the buzz of the bee. :)

On July 1st, I told Ava that it was July. She was so excited. I've never seen anyone so excited for it to be July. Then she said, "Now it's my birthday!!!" It's going to be a long couple of weeks until then. 

About rollerblading:
"I think I would try it and be like 'I'm so cool' and then come back without any teeth."     ~Donald

I made 7 1/2 pint jars of fig preserves today. 

Where did all of these cockroaches come from!?!?!?!?! Nasty!!!!

34 days until we leave.
