It's an odd dynamic in our house. Sometimes, it feels like Avery is an only child. Just because so many days of the month, her sister and brother aren't here.
But when they are, she is just the third born, like in any other family with three kids.
I got so lucky that her brother and sister love her because I've seen where it's not like that in blended families. But they do. They absolutely love her. And she loves them.
Avery started walking this week. Like, really walking. She walks everywhere. She can walk for quite a ways by herself. And she's gotten really good at getting back up after she's falling down. I love watching her determination. Today, she walked over to her rocking chair. There was stuff in it, so she took it off, and Jason and I sat there and watched her try and figure out how to get it in. She likes things. She tries to get things she wants. It's like she's becoming a little girl overnight.
Her new favorite thing to do is hold on to her sister's hands and walk. And Soph will walk her everywhere. It's so sweet. Soph will just say, "Come on, honey! Let's go to the kitchen. Come on honey, let's go to your momma!" It's so sweet. Today, everyone was out playing in the backyard so I took Avery out in the grass. Soph was just walking around with Avery and I just had to get a picutre.
When she falls down, Soph will say, "Are you OK honey?" It's the sweetest thing.
Such happy girls.
Jordan and Jason must've played 4 games of soccer. The kids love having a yard. It's wonderful. I can't tell you what a difference it's made in our family, having space.
The dogs especially love it. Bella just played with them as much as she could.
It was a good weekend. I even got to spend time with my sisters and go to a wedding shower. This is what I love about living so close.
