Do-dos and Bedtime

On a stressful Sunday morning, Avery got a glazed donut from Dunkin' Donuts but instead grabbed Mama's coffee cake muffin and gobbled it down, saying "Me cake! Me cake!" Mama had to settle for the donut :(

Big Boy clothes and Leaping Lizards

All of a sudden, all of Avery's clothes are too small for him! We went to the big consignment sale last weekend and sold a bunch of his old clothes and bought a bunch of new things, all 4T and 5T! What a big boy! We got him new jeans, a jacket, a winter coat, a halloween costume, a bunch of sweat pants and casual shirts, a really nice dinosaur sweater, and some new toys.

He also has these somewhat "retro" pjs:

Avery loves these fruit snacks. He calls them "snacks," and asks for them a lot: "Mo' snacks? mo' snacks?"

We decided to take Avery to Leaping Lizards on a rainy Saturday. We hadn't been there in months, and he had a GREAT time. Since it was rainy, it was very crowded, but we still had a nice time. Avery loves playing in the balls, with the video games, and going down the slides.

This boy insisted on "helping" Avery play all of the games. He also offered to take our prize tickets if we didn't want them (we let him have them) and to have any of our unwanted tokens. Wasn't that nice? :)

Avery loves basketball. When we go to the playground, he runs over to the teenage boys who are always there and looks longingly at them. I tell him that he has to be out of diapers before he can join them, so this is at Leaping Lizards:

Avery loves to pick up all of the balls at Leaping Lizards. Seriously, they should pay him:

Lamaze Reunion with 2 year olds!

Avery got to get together with his friends Oliver, Ernesto, and Reagan. They are all just over 2 years old and 3 out of the 4 will have baby siblings early next year . . . ;)

They loved playing with toys outdoors, especially with Reagan's golf clubs and Dora house, and eating delicious Italian pasta made by Ernesto's parents. They also played ring-around-the-rosie together!

Showing off and Cuddling with Mom

Lately, Avery has been VERY cuddly with mom and wants to snuggle all the time:

He likes to show off his letters:
