Running with Scissors

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

We'll get to the running with scissors part in a bit.

While I was busy hosting a baby shower this past weekend, one was being hosted for my sweet sister-in-law, Brooke. They are expecting a baby boy at the end of April, and we couldn't be more excited! I sent along a package from Texas since I couldn't make the trip to Georgia. Included with a couple other baby things was this little set. The fabrics are Jennifer Paganelli's Claire Blocks and Lizzy House's Red Letter Day. The pattern is from Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones. I hope it keeps my future nephew cozy!On to the running with scissors.

So, I guess every parent things their kid is super smart, but Avery shocks me every day lately. I have to pass on this story just to have it recorded. You know how Avery likes hats, well she has a love of shoes too especially her rain boots. This morning we pulled out her box of shoes, and she wanted me to take on and off just about every shoe in the box. Then she can to a pair of flip flops I bought for her yesterday at Target. Since they still had tags on, I said we would need scissors to put these on. Not knowing what she was doing, I remained seated while Avery dashed around the corner. By the time I went to meet her, seconds really, she had opened the desk drawer, pulled out the scissors, and was running back to me with scissors in hand. Scared me to death first, but I was amazed second. I sure haven't taught her specifically what scissors are. Keep in mind she is only 21 months tomorrow. Yikes! I'm proud of her though.

Stay tuned I will probably have super big news to share later today. The turn my little world upside down kind. Of course, it will mean nothing to most of you, but it's big for us.
