Ten Weeks of Avery
In the past couple weeks, Avery has really become more babyish and less of a newborn infant. She is much more playful now and will sit and smile at you if you talk to her. She has also started "talking" herself. My mom taught her to say "ah-goo" and it's really cute, she will say it! I'm sure it's just developmentally easy for her to make that noise, and she can't always do it, but when it comes out of her she just about turns herself inside out with excitement. She also loves getting massaged. Rub her feet and she will just sit there and bliss out. Like mother like daughter.
As much fun as we are having with her, it is still hard for me to fathom how people have multiple children. I mean, just logistically, how do you handle taking care of a baby when another child also needs to be fed, bathed, dressed, put to bed, etc.??? All of my energy and attention is going to Avery and I can't imagine having to also care for another kid. I've heard tons of people say second babies are easier... There are moments when I think I might be in the one and done club!
