I'm so behind it's embarrassing...Oh well let's play catch-up! Avery-Harper is now 10 months old and WALKING! Yes walking!!! She took her first steps when she was 9 months and then her first consistent (more than three in a row) steps on Thanksgiving Day at my brother's house! It's incredible watching her just walk around the house. She so short and it's literally the cutest thing ever! She says "dada" but we aren't sure if it's directed at her father yet. Her first real word was "stop" and she totally uses it correctly! She still has no teeth. Not a one! We aren't worried though. Our doctor said it's no big deal until 18 months. She is into everything and all over the house. She goes from room to room on her own regardless of where we are in the house. She is very independent and quite stubborn which I know she gets that from me! Her personality is still great! She never meets a stranger and goes to any and everyone. We love her to pieces and she is quite the handful! Our tinyBIGgirl! She is small but she is FIERCE!
