Avarie Sue - We love you!

Well, in my ongoing effort to either pay for therapy or college education for my children, Avarie made her opinion known about the fact that her brother got his own posting about all the great things he can do. She wanted you to know about all the great things she can do, too! So, here's her latest and greatest . . .

She can eat "cheerios papa" from a bowl with a spoon and milk without dumping the whole thing for the dogs. This is an important accomplishment for her, because she hates the dogs and throwing food on the floor results in the dogs stampeding out to clean it up. (Remember what I said about therapy?)

She can play hide and seek in the dining room curtains. Those darn pink shoes sure do give it away, huh?

And, best of all, she started taking a few steps here and there a few days before my birthday. And, just like we predicted, she was holding out on walking until she could run (or at least a 16 month old version). She is now toddling all over the place and is proud as punch of it. Tate says that she is "wicked fast" and is great at keeping up with her. Tate has also given her a new nickname - Sas - like a sassy sister. We had been calling her "Little" since she was born, and she isn't so little anymore, but she is quite sassy.

Here's a clip of Sas with her walking feet! Way to go, Avarie Sue!!!
