Well, sorry for the long hiatus again (and this is a long post--sorry). I haven't posted in part because my camera has not been working for a while now, and I haven't had any pictures to post :). There has been so much going on that I really don't even know where to start! I guess I will start with Avi. She is just turning into a little girl so quickly...no more baby around our house! She is saying phrases fairly easily these days and seems like she is just going to bust out some sentences any day now. She's something else...it's so amazing how much she understands and is able to comprehend. Her personality is blossoming, and she is really beginning to get upset when she doesn't always get her way. When she doesn't get her way, and she feels it worth getting upset over, her new thing is to arch her back, start crying (completely fake), and plop down on her rear end. The other day I took something away from her and she plopped down and then gently lay her head back on the hardwood floors and then proceeded to start crying about it. It was quite a site!
Avi has also become quite the copycat. She tries to do everything we do and say everything we say. It is so cute. I love to tell her she is a copycat; of course she says, "topeetat." It's too funny.
Drew competed in the Heatwave Triathlon in Jackson on June 6. He did great...it was a 1/2 mile swim, a 24.5 mile bike ride and a 6.2 mile run. He did it in 2 hours 5 minutes and came in 42nd out of about 475 people. It is called the Heatwave, but actually they had GREAT weather that morning, very low humidity and lower temps than usual in June!
