avery's a pretty big fan, too. she's recently decided that she's too big for laying on her back, pacifiers, and her activity mat. the day that she figured out how to roll over was the same day that she refused to take a pacifier again. she's never been a huge fan but liked them when she was trying to fall asleep. not any more. she's even becoming less interested in sucking on her thumb when she's upset. and the activity mat is now only cool if she's standing up, which means i spend a lot of time helping her 'stand' while she grabs multiple toys at once and stares at herself in the mirror.
she's now into her board books (we have tons), chomping on sophie, and grabbing things like my hat and nose and the dog's ear and the cat's tail. good thing she's still into being held and sneaking morning naps with me because those are my favorite.
