One thing I have learned about kids is they are strangle little creatures Surprising you daily and constantly making you guess about everything. Good thing they are worth every single second! Around Christmas Avery decided she’d walk…for about a week. Then she HATED it. If anyone even said the word walk she would get mad and have a tantrum. For real. So we stopped pushing her to do it and she would walk here and there but not a lot. Yesterday we went to a first birthday and lots of the little kids Avery played with on my year off were there and almost all were walking. About two-thirds into the party Avery decided to walk. And not just a few steps, across the room and just wandered around! What?! Well, once we came home it was ALL she wanted to do. She did not even want to eat supper, just wanted to walk around. So we might finally have a kid that will walk her way into Kindergarten
Now, onto our weekend:
Just a night at home but I will leave it there since I have a post coming this week more on Friday.
We grabbed groceries bright and early so Avery could have a good morning nap at home before meeting my Grandma for lunch. My Grandma is semi crazy and acts if she does not see us in 10 days that it has been months and Avery will hate her. Sigh. Well, Avery does play shy right now so of course that does not help our case. Thankfully, she warmed up after a bit.
After lunch we ran out to find Avery running shoes. All her shoes are soft soled and I wanted something more structured with regular soles for outside. I had Nike Frees in mind since they are still light weight and of course fell in love with a color online. We found some but not in that color:
At least they are not pink! And no white since that just shows all the dirt. Now to find rain boots!
Blurry walking photo, I am definitely doomed now to ever get a clear photo again…
That evening we had a couple friends over who we had not seen in awhile so just caught up with them.
I woke up wanting to run, and though it would have been the perfect day for an outside run I was not feeling it at 8am, still way easier to hit the treadmill. I got in 8km! I have only been running one day a week for the last 6-7 weeks since my focus has been pump so every once in awhile I like to get in a few extra kms over my usual 5-6km run.
I spoiled Chad (and Avery) with their favourite brunch, multigrain blueberry waffles:
Sadly, something was off and the waffles looked pathetic, but they tasted the same as usual!
After brunch we rushed around to get house chores done before heading to the birthday party:
The party was a ton of fun! It always amazes me how well all the kids can play together. I am not even sure I saw many tears.
Avery giving me the “no more photos” look at the party:
We had a low key evening at home with Avery walking everywhere. I see lots of bruises in our near future now!
