Avery wants to walk in the worst way. She is now finding anything she can push to get where she needs to go. She is not a fan of being contained. That means the swing, excersaucer, and any other confining apparatus is out of the equation. She climbs up the couch and thinks the stairs are her mountain to conquer. She has endless energy.
|Avery would rather stand in the wagon!|
|Ella on the slide..."look mom, no hands"|
Things come very easily to Avery. Ella has to work hard to make her muscles do the things the way they should, to keep up with friends on the playground and in the classroom and to speak the words that come so naturally to others. You have heard me boast about her accomplishments endlessly. She makes me proud to be her mother every day. Avery also amazes me too. I know it's just the beginning. She will one day understand her sisters struggles. I hope and pray that Jason and I can instill in her the same believe, confidence and expectations we have for Ella. I want Avery to be so proud and yet protective of her big sister. It will be something that will set her apart from her friends and will no doubt make her a better person.
