Silly Faces Anyone?

Avery's on a new kick of exploring the expressions she can make. It all started one day when she tried to take the top off of one of her fake bottles of cleaning suppplies (funny story regarding cleaning supplies coming soon). She pulled so hard on the lid, while it did not budge, that she shook all over, eyes wide and mouth open. I laughed so hard that she looked at me and realized she did something funny. Of course the silly face appeared again even though she wasn't trying to get the lid off.

So, now one of her favorite things to do is look in the mirror or at one of us and make goofy faces. I tried to capture the main funny one, but our camara is just too slow so what you're seeing is the tail end.

Of course after she makes her faces, she laughes at herself, so that's what the second picture is.

Regarding the cleaning supply story...

Kenny's mom sent Avery a vacuum cleaner, broom and dust pan a while back, complete with a box of detergent and two bottles of cleaning sprays. (All miniatures of course.)

Avery has recently re-discovered the bottles of supplies and enjoys chewing on the tops while her teeth hurt, taking the lids off, etc.

The other day while Kenny and I got ready for church, Avery sat in the floor, playing. I saw she had one of the bottles in her mouth, but of course thought nothing of it. Kenny, however, did not. As I walked into the bathroom, I heard, "Oh my goodness! Are you eating that!!!" (Then after taking the bottle from her), "Did you drink the whole thing!!!" He exclaimed, running toward me. (Well, I exaggerated a little..there was no running.) After I stopped laughing, I explained to him that they were 'pretend,' hence their small size, and that Avery would be just fine because there was nothing in them from the beginning.

Maybe that was a 'you had to be there' story, but for some reason it cracks me up.

(In all seriousness, I'm glad he was concerned about the well-being of our daughter.)

The other day we were in the kitchen and noticed that Lawson, who was playing, was now very quite, which usually means he is into something. I go to investigate to find that he has gotten the CHILD-PROOF cap off of the ibuprofen and has started to drink it! Luckily, he didn't even get a 1/4 of a dose so nothing to worry about. He is into everything.

You made me laugh! That is a great story. She is so cute and is getting so big.

Great story! I too would probably get caught up in the panic of the moment as well and think, "the whole darn bottle is empty - what were you thinking??"

Maybe she makes the funny faces because of all of the cleaning supplies she's been drinking.
