New Things Learned

While spending time with her cousins, Avery picked up several new skills. Mazie taught Avery to say "uh-oh" and to stand up without holding on to anything. All 3 triplets taught Avery that indeed she can hold her own bottle now that she's 13 months. With 3 babies to feed my sister did not have the luxury of holding each of them with each bottle, so they learned early on how to hold their own bottles. Avery followed suit, drinking her own first bottle on the way home from the airport when we returned. I will admit this has freed up some precious time in the morning and night. Thanks to our sweet neices and nephew for sharing their skills.

Family Fun

We recently returned from visiting my sister and her family for a week. Avery had such a great time with her precious cousins. We were so sad to leave. Thanks for a great time, Lucia, Elliott and Mazie! For all the details of our trip, see my sister's blog. She provides a great synopsis of all the fun we had.
