that’s short for Avé Maria. i’m named after an italian, religious song, altho it’s been sung in many other languages since it was written. i can be really silly, altho dressing me up was mom’s idea, not mine! this is not how i’m silly.
my sillyness is more like this where i sneak into pics and mom doesn’t even realize i’m there until later when she’s put it on the computer! being sneaky is one of the things i’m good at. but when you intentionally take my picture, or i’m given your full attention, i get all shy!
so i’ll look away or yawn. see?
