Well, Averi is now saying "bye, bye" with an absolutely adorable little wave to go along with it. You can see the video here. She also says, "mama" and "dada", but "bye bye" is the is the only word/phrase she associates with a gesture (her cute baby wave). I can't explain just how proud I am of my baby girl, not only when she learns new things, but just in general. I know, I know... I say it all the time, how much I love her, how proud I am of her, yadda yadda, but I seriously cannot help it. Being a mother to this perfect baby angel is by far the best thing that has ever happened to me in my life.
Little Bean is also on the road to crawling! Yay! She kind of just pulls herself along, little by little, and turns in circles a bunch, but she is totaling getting there. Not that I want her to grow up any faster, I would be perfectly content if she just skipped the crawling stage. Then she would still need me to tote her around, not to mention be getting into things. :-) I will never understand why parents want their babies to grow up so fast, to crawl, walk, and talk.. I am a firm believer a baby will do things on his or her own time, and a parent should not try and rush it for his or her own sake.
Okay, moving right along. Wasn't the weather today absolutely gorgeous?! Averi, Kehilo and I totally took advantage of it and went to then nice park up the road from our home for a little stroll. Of course, I took my camera, planning to get some cute pictures of Averi at the park in the fab weather. What do you know?! My camera reminds me that I had left my memory card in the computer at home from when I uploaded pictures last night. Sweeeeeeet. That was definitely a bummer, but, I did learn a valuable lesson; always keep a spare memory card in my camera case. That gives me an excuse to go get another one. Yippie! I did manage to get a few cute pictures with my phone. Here is one:
She is pointing at her shadow! And she hates to wear her shoes, she is for sure a barefoot baby, just like her mama!
And, lastly, as I mentioned in my previous post, I am going to be posting some of my favorite pictures as I go through old photos, and pictures from Averi's newborn time. It is so much fun to look at them and compare to how much she has grown (not to mention, how I have grown and changed over the years!).
-Love to you all-
