Avery is 10 months old today! I know I say this every single month, but I really can’t believe how fast this year has gone. Pretty soon I am going to have to start planning her first birthday. Wasn’t I just pregnant a couple of months ago?! Because it sure does feel that way.
This month has been a big one for Avery. We celebrated her first Christmas, she took her first steps, and spent the last week as sick as she’s ever been. She’s slowly on the mend and ready to get back into all of the crazy things she likes to get into around the apartment. I really have to watch her every move because she will find the littlest things on the floor and try to put them in her mouth. That girl is sneaky!
She’s become even more attached to Harlan this month and will follow her almost anywhere she goes. Thankfully Harlan doesn’t view her as an annoying little sister, but as a permanent play date. I just hope it stays that way forever. Avery is also much more playful this month. She loves to play games. It’s all about the reaction with her. She plays peek-a-boo non-stop and has also invented a new game where she pretends to sleep on the ground just so you can say “awww.” She’s starting to figure out that she loves having the attention on her. And we love giving it to her.
I’ve captured so many fun moments this month of Avery’s bubbly personality. It was hard to narrow it down, but I’ve managed to pick out some of my favorites.
