Avery is really developing these past few days and has started doing some new things. She is starting to roll, has made it about 85% to her tummy but hasn’t totally figured out how to get that bottom arm out from under her to go all the way.
She is such a happy baby. She smiles all the time and is so responsive when you talk to her and make funny noises. She likes her armpits and tummy to be kissed and she likes to watch you across the room.
Just last night (her 4 month birthday) she actually laughed directly at Ella with no prompting from us. Ella was jumping and acting crazy which is now her bedtime M.O. and Avery thought it was funny. So of course we encouraged Ella to continue acting crazy and Avery loved it. If I can capture it on video I’ll post it soon.
Avery had her 4 month check up today at the pediatrician. She is 17 lbs 2 oz, which is over a pound heavier than Ella was at the same age. She is also a little under an inch longer. She will likely even out a bit when she starts crawling but right now she looks more like a 7 month old than a 4 month old!
I can’t get enough of this little ray of sunshine. Her nicknames are Milk Dud, A Bear and Pearl. And of course Baby. Ella can say her name now though which is really precious. She says “Ah-vry.” Love it.
