Yesterday was my day off of work and it was so beautiful outside! We met Gabe for lunch at his work which was nice. When we got home, we played a little bit and practiced our standing:
After her (crappy) afternoon nap, we spent a little time outside. I was going to take her for a walk, but it was getting late so instead I decided we would sit outside and enjoy the nice weather. So I pulled out the circa 1970 blanket (it seriously is older than I am!) and outside we went! I've never attempted this with Avery so I didn't know how she'd do with the whole idea. I brought out her rings and some bubbles to occupy her. She immediately went for the bubbles:
Then she felt grass for one of the first times. We had her feel it a few weeks ago and she did not like it one bit. She did a little better with it today!
First she just patted the grass, then she realized she could pull it out of the ground-which amazed her. Then of course she had to inspect it:
And of course it went right to her mouth! So I spent a good 20min telling her not to eat the grass and taking it away from her. But we enjoyed the nice day! We can't wait for more to come!
