sweet Sidney with his daddy (Luke's older brother)
I don't think Avery even noticed his existence - you have to be bright and flashy to catch her attention these days.
Smiling for the camera.
We've been taking lots of trips to the park. I love that she has hair that blows in the wind now.
She's close to walking - she is working on standing on her own, but she won't take a step unless she is holding onto someone or something. So, she cruises around the coffee table and back and forth between it and the couch. She's also bending down to pick up objects, which she promptly drops and picks up again. Over and over. And! This is a big one...she tackled stairs all by herself (with me hovering directly behind her)...she's never been on them before, and up she went without hesitation. How did she figure that out?!
I also spent some time doing some baking for friends. Forgot to take pictures of a couple of the cakes, but I did manage to snap some shots of these. And, to check them out from a better photo shoot, go here.My fab friend Erin is a great photographer, and these were for her daughter's 1st birthday.
Sorry for the sparse posting lately. We're quite busy and we're both battling colds this week- Avery was so nice and decided to share hers with me.
