5 years old today!
All three girls are actually very much into coloring these days. They use a prolific amount of paper. We get scrap paper via Elliott's work, but if we didn't have this unlimited supply I would have to insist they use coloring books (a second-rate gimick in their minds; they are not big fans of coloring books).
A few weeks ago Ava and Lily played Guess Who with Elliott and I. Ava is really good! (Lily needs a little more help, but she loves it.) I laughed so hard while we were playing, I hope to do it again soon.
As you know, Piper got her cast off last week. She is still her zany self and enjoys cracking us all up. These days she can swing from happy to whiny in .05 seconds, but we are working through it. She is such a talker, it is incredible. I have to stifle laughing at her most of the time, because she is being thoroughly serious in the most high-pitched baby voice. It is very funny.
Here are a few snippets of conversation from Piper:
Said to me: Whatcha watchin? 'Ad Men? (Mad Men) Oh, OK.
This is a conversation repeated over and over again about anything. Hence:
Who you talkin' to? Oh Daddy? OK.
or it's equivalent Who you talkin' to? Oh Daddy? I LUUUUUV Daddy!
You can pretty much replace the word "daddy" with anything. Ooohh puppies? I LUUUUUV puppies! Ooohh grass? I LUUUUUV grass!
