book review - go dog go

possibly avery's all time (okay 2 year) favorite book is go dog go by p.d. eastman. she used to call it "go go rah-rah." this is the one book where we can't skip any pages, she knows what comes next.

this past winter, uncle jer was reading it to avery...or the other way around.

i caught her reading it one day in our bedroom. by the time i got the camera, she was almost done.

if you can't tell what she says it's: "i don't wanna" (go to bed) then she is making the dog party noises, then "hello again", "good-bye" and "i'm reading."
teacher note: this is a great book for teaching adjectives, prepositions, colors, or opposites. go dog go has it all!

hello goodbye

avery's school did a musical last week. our camera battery was out of juice, but here is a sample of the song she sang with her class. pay no attention to the woman with the big belly. she wouldn't do it if i was by the camera so i had to rig it. it is pretty close to the performance night...only on stage she did a lot more jumping.

avery is 2!

saturday was avery's 2nd birthday. we had a party at mustang park. the weather was on the verge of rain the whole day, but it held off long enough for us to have a great time. avery loved playing with her friends and running around on the playground.

it was a ladybug theme and my friend marlana, of honey cakes, made the cupcakes.

besides the playground, the kids played with bubble and sidewalk chalk.

they also painted pots and planted bean seeds.
avery opened some great presents.
keesja, kiley and grandma wanda help open presents.
time to go home...
