wondering what this picture has to do with sweet innocent little avery mae??
let me tell you:
the other night, after putting ave to bed, she instantly popped up and started crawling all over the place. (not typical for her) i expected her to calm down but when i came back to check on her she was still just as wired. i kept watching her and decided to go grab danny so he could see our crazy daughter. we thought it best to put pillows around her just in case she toppled out of her bassinet. we kissed her goodnight and went out into the kitchen to watch a show. a few minutes later, i went to grab a drink...and what do you know??? avery has the most triumphant look on her face as she is CRAWLING INTO THE KITCHEN!!! it freaked me out! i was so shocked, but i also couldn't stop laughing. it was craziness. good thing we put pillows down!! both of our pack-n-plays were at my parents, so we had to make a late night trip to our friends to borrow one (thanks again linzy!) luckily, she hasn't figured out how to get herself out of that one...yet :)
we love you little goose!
