6 months

So Avery has hit the half-year mark and I simply cannot believe it! This little butterball, which seemed to be in my belly just yesterday, is now only 6 months away from being a year old. We are just in awe of how fast she is growing and changing. It seems that she does something new everyday!

She loves baby food and I'm yet to find anything she doesn't like...however we've not tried anything green yet, so maybe that will allow for a more video-worthy reaction. She is able to sit on her own for a long time but still has her "whoops, I fell over" moments. Avery has also made an exciting (and deafening) discovery...her vocal chords. She has been making sounds for a long time but it wasn't until recently that she figured out the concept of volume. She loves to yell and scream and we've discovered that she will often do this when she's tired to try to keep herself awake. This also goes hand-in-hand with the little 'tude she's developed (I think she gets this from her daddy...he disagrees). I will often get a good yellin' at (did I just say "get a good yellin' at?!?") when I do something she doesn't like, like pulling a shirt over her head or buckling her in her carseat. It is quite humorous though. It will be interesting to see what the next 6 months have in store....

Just for laughs

4th of July

We got together with our friends Sean, Aprile & their daughter Kayden for the 4th. Avery had her first pool experience! She liked to stand in the pool but absolutely would not let me sit her in it. Kayden is beginning to warm up to Avery but still gets a little jealous whenever her mama holds Avery. It is fun to watch them interact and I look forward to the day when they can play together!
