Mutual of Omaha

So, in my last post I told you that Mom, Grandma Herbert and I were on our way to Beloit to visit the Chapmans. It was so much fun! It was a bit of a hike but we had a blast. We did lots of reading and singing and chatting and playing (I totally rocked some patty cake - or is it pat-a-cake?) It was awesome to have four generations of our family in one room again. I have some video but I have some editing to do then I'll post. In the meantime, here are some pics.

Since Dad was getting home late friday night, Mom and I wanted to be home to greet him. Unfortunately this meant we had to leave Beloit Friday evening. It made for a long day but it was totally worth it to see Dad when he came home. I was VERY excited to see him and let him know some big smiles. I knew Dad was excited to spend some time with me too so I went ahead and woke up at 7:30 on Saturday morning so Dad and I could play. YEA! When Mom got up, they decided we needed to run some errands, including a stop at First Watch so M&D could eat. FW was jammed packed and I couldn't see anything from my car seat so I told Dad I wanted to get out and play. Also, I kind of wanted to show off cute outfit. How much do I love Baby Legs? SO MUCH!

On Sunday, M&D and I had breakfast with Grandma & Grandpa Davenport and Uncle Dave & Aunt Darty at Mimi's. As per usual, I was able to sucker GmaD into getting me out of my car seat so I could play. While I was playing, GmaD let it slip that she got me a sweet new toy. I begged Dad all afternoon to go over to G&G Ds to see what it was and he finally gave in around 4:00. And OMG, how awesome is this? It's like 30 toys in one. First, it lets me stand which I love but the tile is a bit cold for my bare feet. I think carpet will be my surface of choice going forward. And if the standing wasn't enough, there are all sorts of toys for me to play with too. There's a whale on a spring, there's a polar bear in a spin wheel, there's a lion and alligator -- it's like wild freakin' kingdom!

Anyway, I know I missed some stuff from this last week so I'll be peppering in some pics and stories over the next few days but for now I'm exhausted and off to bed.

Until Later,
Avery
