This week Avery and I went to our first official neighborhood play date. There are several new mom's who live in our neighborhood with babies around the same age. Our play group ranges in ages of 9 months - 6 weeks. It was just a nice time to get out of the house and socialize with other adults as well. Our plan is to do this every other Wednesday at a different person's home each week. I am scheduled to host at the end of February.
Not everyone could make it this time. We had Sophia (8 months), Miles (6 months), Mason (6 weeks), and our other neighbor stopped by with her 4 year old, Ava. I think the little ones bored Ava, but she is going to be a big sister at the end of May. It was fun to watch the babies take notice of each other. Sophia sits up and plays, where Avery and Miles would rather play on their tummy's. Avery is the most mobile of all of them so far. And Mason slept most of the time. He is so small, I feel like Avery was never that small. I know what you're thinking....where are the pictures of the group? Hmmmm I didn't get one of the whole group. However I did get these shots of Miles and Avery playing together. I will try to be better next time.
I think that this is the best picture I've ever taken of these two together. They are both looking at the camera. AMAZING!!
Avery covering Miles' mouth. He must have been saying something that she didn't like. :)
Avery tried her sippy cup with apple juice in it for the first time today. I did 2oz water with 2oz apple juice. She was a big fan! She doesn't quite know how to hold it and drink out of it, but she is working on it.
I'm so excited for the weekend to be here even though I had so much fun with Avery this week. It's nice to have Greg home with us. I am planning on working on making Avery some homemade baby food. Maybe some broccoli and cauliflower. Those are things that they don't sell in the store. I will report back on how it went.
I hope you have a great weekend!
