My Little Cupcake




Avery is growing up way too fast.  I have to capture these moments and not forget all the little things she does that make me laugh and warm my heart.  

She had a doctor appointment yesterday, and here are the stats. . . She's still off the charts in height and weight, but her head thankfully is in the 70% range.  She weighs 33 lbs. and is the average size of a 3-year old and she's only 22 months.  People look at her and think she is a 3-year old and expect that vocabulary to be there – nope.  Our friend, Emily Evans babysat her the other day and described Avery's language perfectly. . . it's Japanese!  Avery loves to talk but only a select few of us really understand.

Yesterday I was making dinner and "Her Pudginess" wiggled up one of the bar stools and sat and watched.  I handed her a chip to eat.  She proceeded to smash it and slide it off the counter onto the floor.  I said, "No Avery!  You pick that up."  So she slid down and started picking up the pieces and throwing them away.  All of the sudden I felt a pat on my leg and Avery yelling, "Mama! Mama!"  I looked down and said, "What?" – kind of annoyed.  Cutest little face in the world looking up at me says, "daw-ee." (sorry) That was the first time I ever heard her use that word.  Precious.  We of course had a delicious squishing session afterwards.  Life is sweet.
