Piggy Love and the Debut of Orneriness
We knew it was going to happen. My mother warned me. I was a deviously ornery child. It seems I have passed down that trait. She has learned to climb into her toy basket to get to the media shelf. I will often return from a brief bathroom break to find her gnawing on a Metallica cover. When you catch her, she just grins and turns to get as many cds as she can before you can pull her away.
One of the most hilarious things Aveline is doing right now is something we call "giving love." Basically, "giving love" is the smothering of hugs and kisses on a person or object. She gives good love to both Dan and I, but her real squeeze is a huge stuffed pig that Santa brought her. She tackles the piggy and kisses and hugs him to oblivion. This lasts for a few minutes. It can be rather disturbing.
