It is so fun to see the similarities in my girls, but even more fun to find their differences. Their personalities are so so different. Ava is into EVERYTHING! I kid you not, my house is not baby proof. Yes, Carli did get into things but apparently not to the degree that little Ava does! ha!
All that to say, that last Thursday we were at Grammy and Pa's house and we found some lady bugs. Carli's most recent thing is to find bugs and demand the fly swatter so she can "whack" them. The other day she refused to come into the kitchen because there was a fly, a little fly and when I finally "whacked" it, she still had to be carried to the table! So, when I found the lady bugs, and showed them to her, Carli wanted the fly swatter. But Grammy prevailed and with both girls in her lap, Grammy made the "bugs" fun!
Look at their faces. Carli is squealing with delight but absolutely refusing to touch the lady bug. Ava on the other hand, is in intense concentration poking the lady bug and letting it crawl all over her!
Carli finally worked up the courage to let the lady bug on her but it lasted a mere 3 seconds! Their faces are priceless!
Later that weekend, the June Bugs made their annual appearance and Ava thinks they are awesome. She picks them up and examines them closely - and yes, they are still alive and kicking. Carli in the mean time is freaking out! I've got to get that on video!
