I don't often pay attention to the date, but this morning as I was catching up on a few days worth of dirty dishes (one of the many down sides of being sick), I realized it was February 16, which means Miss Avery is officially 7 1/2.
So what does a 7 1/2 year old girl do? She reads blogs, decorates virtual rooms and watches episodes of i-Carly online, reads about other girls' embarassing moments in the American Girl magazine.
She tries to hypnotize her brother.
She recommended that we laminate some of our favorite recipes and hang them on the wall in the kitchen.
She wanted to help George paint today, so she made herself a smock out of a garbage bag by cutting a neck hole and arm holes.
She really stepped up to the plate this past week while I was sick, making breakfast for herself and her brother, bringing me water, taking pictures for me so I could keep up with my picture a day goal.
It's not so easy to watch my baby grow up so fast, but my oh my she is growing up beautifully.
