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!

I know, right? When they are mobile they can wreck a place in seconds!

She looks so cute scooting like that!

I like that bum scoot. I am impressed that you remembered to put up the garbage can.
