Avery had her Valentine Party yesterday, yay!!! I told Jenn (her babysitter) that I would come and help. She told me kids at this age tend to not participate when their parents are there and just to expect that if I come. I thought I would just let the professionals do it. :-)
Of course, we had to send the "Melmo" valentines.
I tried to take some pictures with her and Jenn, but when I dropped her off, Jenn said, "Avery Duck (that's what she calls her), do you want some eggs and potatoes for breakfast?" After that, Avery wouldn't look at me. She just stared at Jenn like, "Where's the grub?"
I made her promise to send me pictures from the party. I got these around 2 and they made me SMILE so much!!
How she gets all of these little ones to sit in a circle while looking at her intently, I will never know.
Jenn got an idea off of Pinterest for a Valentine's Day craft. This is not the final product, I just found this picture to give you an idea. I need to take a real picture! I love that Jenn sends her home with crafts. Those are the coolest things. She sent her home with a Christmas ornament and I treasure it.
Avery did NOT like it at first, she said.
But then she liked it. It tickled her feet and she liked it!
I look at the picture below and see that little girl in her seat with the heart. Recognize that outfit?
She was so little! Awe. Memories.
