 Our Little Explorer!

Now that Avin can crawl she is always on the go.  She loves checking out every single corner of the house and going from room to room.  We can almost always find her in the mud room chewing on Alex shoe laces or paying with the fringe on the rug.  Her other favorite thing todo ( alex also loved it ) is to play with the door stoppers.  She will just hit it and listen to it and watch it ( I clearly remember Alex doing this and I love that Avin does as well ).  She finds them in every room : the kitchen, our bathroom, her room or Alex room.  

She has also started to pull her self up on everything.  She is strong just like her sister was / is.  She does this thing when she is sitting and bounces and she can almost ( if she had the right balance ) stand up on her own.

A funny thing Avin has started doing is blowing bubbles and making funny noises with her mouth.  She loves to just sit and spit / blow bubbles out of her mouth.  
My favorite thing right now is listening to her and Alex together.  Alex is around me all day and hears me talk to Avin.  She says the exact same things that I say and it is so cute.  She is such an amazing big sister and loves Avin so much.  As the months go on there bond gets strong and stronger.  

Avin follows Alex around everywhere.  I was putting clothes away in Avins room and Alex went into the bathroom and Avin followed her.  They played in the bathroom for about 20 minutes.  If Alex wants Avin some where she now just picked her up and takes her with her.

Love having two girls!  Adore there sister bond!

Both of my kids love/d the door stoppers too! I remember the 1st time Riley pulled it when he was little. It scared me to death bc I had no idea what it was. Now Averly loves to play with them.
How sweet that Avin follows Alex around. She loves her big sister! That's so funny that Alex talks to her like you do. Riley does that too & it cracks me up. Hope y'all are having a great weekend!

what an adorable little girl! I had to say, reading about Avin's adventures reminded me of my oldest at that age. I'm going to spare telling you how that curiousity has served us....!!

Such adorable pictures!

When I was pg with Lainey and found out I was having another girl, I have to admit I was a little bummed. But, now I'm so glad I have two girls, I just love it!
