Young Fan

"When you're FIF-teee-een / Somebody tells you they love you / You gotta believe them"

This is what Abby Kate spontaneously sang out while sitting on the couch today. Mike and I looked at each other, unbelieving, and just started laughing. Those words sound really funny coming out of a three year old. Anytime a Taylor Swift song comes on the radio in the car, after only a few beats of the music, she knows it's her "lady song" (which is what she calls all of Taylor Swift's songs).

So I guess Taylor has fans of all ages... kudos to her for all her CMA awards!

Abby Kate was one of her favorite princesses for Halloween (Sleeping Beauty). She made it about a 1/4 mile in those shoes before donning pink boots for the rest of her trick-or-treating excursion in our friends' neighborhood. She scored lots of suckers and chocolate. I helped her eat the chocolate because I'm such a good mommy like that. :) Mike was gone most of October, so he missed Halloween again this year. But we were excited to welcome him home last Monday. We love having Daddy home again!

Avery was a pink cheetah, but I didn't get a good picture. So here's a recent one of her... she is getting much more animated and is the sweetest thing ever. She is growing so fast. She continues to be in the 50th percentiles for all her measurements. She still spits up all the time, but it doesn't seem to affect her weight. She continues to sleep like an angel (12 hours a night since she was 8 weeks!). BLISS!
