Avery

Avery is being so sweet today! She keeps running behind me and laughing when I turn around, then bolting for me to come chase her. I was sitting on the floor with her and we were watching TV when she started feeding me her Cheerios. She's been doing that all morning. I keep a bowl of dry Cheerios for her on the coffee table so she can have a snack when she wants one, and she'll carefully get one in each hand - then she takes her bite, and gives me the other one. She's been giving me lots of kisses today as well. She crawls up into my lap and takes my face in her little hands and then kisses me while humming "MMMMMMMMMUAH!!" and then pulling back. Then she gets down and goes exploring around the house more.

I adore this child, I swear she makes life so much better. I'm convinced that she knows when I'm in a bit of a funk, too. She adjusts her mood accordingly, it's the strangest thing. She just knows me. I look at her and Cole and it makes me beam to watch them grow. I remember when they were born and how tiny they were. I remember shortly after he was born how Cole used to look at me when I walked in the door. He'd catch sight of me and just grin and grin. I'd take him from Maggie and he would coo at me, and occaisionally barf all over me, and I would just put on a new shirt and take him back from her all over again. Now he's a big boy...

That's the worst thing about babies, they stop being babies too quickly.
