So apparently once kids reach six months they completely change overnight! Just this week Averie got herself some nice chompers. Oh it was such a wonderful experience let me tell ya. Everyone has warned me about teething, but I bet their kids weren't recovering from shots and being weaned from breastfeeding at the same time. Lets just say this week has been a bit of a challenge. It also was a huge week at work for me, so I am just exhausted! Monday I took Averie in to get her shots and they went as planned. Well later that day she just started screaming and I could see the two little white culprits under her gums. Great timing! Well that night she woke up at ONE am and would not go back to sleep. It was awful. She was just so miserable and I was so stressed because the next day was really important for me at work. Well we got through it and now both of these babies have broke the skin. Wha Hoo!
I know I am horrible for taking a picture, but I am going to miss my toothless grin so I wanted to make sure I had a picture of them just barely coming in.
Well along with the teething, Averie has decided she wants to start moving. She hasn't quite figured it out yet-thank goodness-but she has the arms down. It's only a matter of time now before she starts crawling. I am going to have to start child proofing the house. I thought I would have at least a couple more months. She's not even rolling over for crying out loud!
One of my favorite changes. Check out this hair!Her hair is finally starting to fill in and it is getting so long! I love it. I can do pony tails now no problem. Pigtails don't quite work yet, but I'm sure they will soon.
I really don't want to be one of those whiney moms that just complains that her child is growing up, but I am a little sad this week. I am so grateful that she is healthy and that she is developing so well, but I am a little taken back that she won't be a baby for ever. Don't get me wrong, I am so excited to see her grow up, but I really have enjoyed the baby stage more that I thought I would. Oh well, that's life I guess.
We just love this little girl so much and don't worry, we don't always treat her like "white trash" baby and leave her in a diaper all night. She was just getting ready for a bath and she was being so happy for the first time all week I had to take some pics.
