Avyn is growing, like babies do! She is a lot of fun. She started smiling at 6 weeks, cooing at 7 weeks, and now does tons of talking throughout the day. You can have a whole conversation with her because she loves to hear people talk and see faces, and she responds with lots of animation. She always had her hand up by her face in ultrasounds, so it’s no surprise that she has found her thumb and uses it often. She doesn’t suck it, but she does move it around her mouth. She grabs toys and tries to get them in her mouth with varying degrees of success. This week she found her tongue and it’s pretty funny because she sticks it out and it reaches down almost past her chin. Sometimes she can’t decide if she wants to stick her tongue out, or put her thumb in, or talk, which is hilarious because she tries to do it all at once.
She and Sean like each other, in their own way. She smiles and lights up when she hears him or sees him, and he gives her hugs and kisses, sometimes forces help on her that she doesn’t need (like stickers), and tries to lay down in her bed, as if to say “Baby does this and I want to see what’s so great about it”. He calls her Baby.
