Ava wants to be a mommy. The first time she saw a doll in the store, she cracked up so hard and made such a hilarious scene that we were forced to purchase it for her. Maternal instincts at 8 months of age? Seems like it... Give her a baby and immediately she hugs her, rocks her, and pats her back. She laughs EVERY time you put one in front of her and the poor dolly's face is soon wet with slobber from many kisses. Nothing makes her happier than holding one of her "daydees" (except maybe Mase...) It's nice to know that my little baby loves pretending to be a mommy almost as much as I love being one to her.
