"Mama, you ate your dinner. I'm so proud of you!"
Avila likes to talk to herself and remind herself of things:
"Keep eating, my love"
"Don't fall, Avila!"
"Don't pee in the bed!"
On the way up to bed: "Mommy, thank you for football practice and Max and daddy and mommy and football boys and coats and teeth and mommy."Overhearing her pray: "Dear Jesus, thank you for all my hearts. Make me safe and happy forever and ever. Holy."
Me: "Avila, are you poopy?"
Her: "Nope. Just a little pee."
Me: "I love you, Avila."
Her: "Thank you!"
Me: "Avila, we're going to Fr. Wichert's first Mass this morning."
Her: "Woot Woot!"
Me: "Avila, do you love life?"
Her: "I love family. Family is my friend."
"Mama, sit on the chair. I want to socialize."
"I got an owie and I was emotional."
"Avila is beautiful."
And my favorite. She has a new nickname for me...
"Hey babes! Where are you?"
