During the short one day visit home, I didn't get to post about Averi's amazing new trick. She is finally mobile...even if it doesn't require her to be on her stomach. :)When we got home on Wednesday I put Averi down on the kitchen floor with some toys while I unpacked and got dinner together. At one point I walked in the room and she was sitting in front of the refrigerator. I asked Dan if he had moved her and he said no. So we sat and watched her and discovered that she was scooting around on her butt!
I think she had been trying to do it at the hospital and we didn't realize because she is always sitting on a blanket on the play-mat. Now that we are home and she has more interesting things around her and a slippery floor to scoot on, she is on the move!
It's been really weird getting used to the fact that I can't just sit her in the hallway at the top of the stairs and expect her to be safe while I do things. I also had to relearn that mobile babies make more messes. I sat her on the floor in the bathroom while I took a shower today and she tore it apart. The bath rugs were piled in the corner and she was sitting right in front of the door when I was done so I couldn't open it without hitting her. At least I remembered to put the trash can on the counter!
