Learning and Hilarities

Here is a picture of Bub telling Ava his favorite new joke. He says “PPPPPSSBBST!” (or other nonsense sound) and then says “That’s not a word!” Laughter follows.

Despite the unorthodox method of teaching Ava what sounds are NOT words, she has managed to learn a few new words. In addition to “mama” and “hi” and the always useful “uh-oh”, Ava now calls the big guy “dada”. Yar!!! Tim literally exploded. Literally. He’s ok, though.

Alexander has let Ava make use of his old Fortress of Solitude.

Doesn’t she look tall? According to the doctor at her 9-month checkup, she now weighs 17 lbs and is 29 inches long….er tall. Can we graduate to calling it “tall” now? Long always sounds so zoological. The fact that the Fortress of Solitude is essentially a baby terrarium doesn’t help either.

OK, back to learning…

Congrats to Ava for new length, her, height, new words and her new entertainment center (the Fortress). Also, love the shots from floor level. It makes the house look so light-filled and enormous - it's good to remember what things look like from kid-height!
P.S., note from dates that I go back and forth over these entries. Can't read them too often!
