Awesome! Thank you for this. Doesn't like Gracie Cat?! Avery is not into the cats either, since they ignore her she ignores them one day though.....and no I am not getting a dog.

"You wouldn't understand"--get used to this one, Nancy. My ten year old thinks this saying applies to nearly every situation! Motherhood--*sigh*

What a cute picture of Erik! Great list encompassing all that he is at this moment in time too. I loved the "It's wake up time." Kayla used to say "Mommy, I up! I up Mommy!"
