We had a nice weekend. We loved watching Avery taking a few steps here and there. The most we saw was 4 or 5. She generally took 2 and then made it from the couch to a chair, or took 2 or 3 and then went down to a crawl. She played and clapped and even danced a little to music now and then. Oh and of course pulled all the cookbooks from the Bakers Rack, one of the most fun things to do at Nonnas house. She is the one who found the recipe that I made for lunch today. Thanks Avery it was delicious. Good job.
When Casey and Charlie got here there was a strong smell of gasoline coming from their car. After Papaw (also known as Pap) and Todd checked it out - to the shop it went. Turns out it is going to need repairs. So they took our old faithful Mini Van back to Monroe until Casey can find out about their warranty. Hopefully it will get fixed quickly. My plan was to take Avery to the Riverwalk this weekend while it was so pretty and her parents were shopping out of town for a new laptop, but since they didn't want to drive their car to Baton Rouge and blow up in it, they took my car. So I had to stay at the house. (I don't want to blow up either.) Avery and I along with Pap and Gran Gran played in the yard instead. Avery didn't know the difference between the Riverwalk and our yard and loved crawling and strolling around the yard and driveway. Maybe we will catch the Riverwalk next visit.
We also got to take our first walk with Avery while she was here. The weather was beautiful so we walked to Penny's house down the street to see the newest member of their family, little Leon. So small and precious. Avery however, wasn't that impressed. I think she thinks it's all about her for some reason. I can't imagine why she would ever get that impression.All of this made Nonna very happy. (Well of course aside from the car thing). OK Seriously that last picture was really just because my sister wanted to see my new hair cut. I dont know why I had my reading glasses on. I wasnt reading. Oh well. Until next time!
