Kids say the cutest things :)

I love the ages my kids are right now. They're so cute, and so funny! I especially love the things they say. I wanted to write down some of my favorite things, so I don't forget them.
Grayson is very articulate, and knows a lot of big words, but he still mispronounces some words in the cutest ways. He says remember as "benember", something as "sumplin", and sometimes says an extra "-ed" at the end of words, like "I playded". We're working on that one :) 

Thatcher has the cutest little voice ever -- everything he says is adorable. I especially love that he uses the word "cute" instead of "little". And "bigger bigger bigger" instead of "big". For example: "I don't want the cute cookie, I want the bigger bigger bigger cookie!"

(6/4/14) Avy Jane is starting to babble a lot -- and she has a few things she says consistently. She says "dada" and "daddle", which is my favorite :). She says "mommmmommm". And she calls the boys "buh-buh", which I'm assuming is brother. She says "doh" for doll. She also has the best giggle ever. 
(8/13/14): She now also says duck, dog/woof, baby, Avy, Nani, daddy, no, out, dat (that), bink (binky), dink (drink), cat, uh-uh (uh-oh), cah-cah (yucky), and even says a few short sentences!! "Daddy, go out!" (Which means she wants daddy to take her outside),"Avy, baby!" (Which means she wants her baby doll), "Mommy up!" (Which means she wants me to pick her up

Avy Jane is 10 months old!

Oh my, this little girl is wonderful.  She is getting so big, so fast. Here's a little about our baby girl:
- She says "dada", "mama", "buh-buh" ("brother" -- when she sees one of her brothers), "dah" (doll), and "nah-nah" (for nonies -- that's what we call it when she nurses). She also signs 'milk' and 'all done'.
- She is SO close to crawling. She can scoot herself pretty much where she wants to go, but no tummy-off-the-floor crawling yet. 
- Her bottom middle two teeth are both coming in -- sooo close to breaking through. 
- She loves Baby Einstein and Baby Signing Time. And My Little Ponies. 
- She loves dolls and shoes -- my girly girl! :D
- She's eating solid food like a champ, but still gets most of her nutrition from nursing. She loves to feed herself from the refillable food pouches I have. She loves peas and crackers. 
- She sticks one foot straight up in the air every time she nurses. (I feed her lying down in bed). She also likes to grab fistfuls of my boob, or pat my boob or face. 
- She loves her brothers, and they sure love her right back. She is Grayson's little darling, and he loves to make her laugh. 
- She's still sleeping in our bed, with occasional naps in her bassinet. 
- She hates getting dressed or getting her diaper change. Anything that involves lying down when she's not sleeping or nursing. 
- She claps and squeals with delight when she sees her daddy ❤️
- She belly-laughs when Steve lays his head down on her tummy.  Apparently it's hilarious.
- She sings with me whenever I sing her lullabies. 
- She likes to listen to Chester See while she falls asleep. If she's fussy, playing his YouTube videos will calm her right down. I think she has a crush on him. 
- She is the sweetest, happiest, snuggliest baby ever. I love it. I love HER!
