Lot 48: My miss sassy Avery

My miss sassy Avery

When Rachelle was in labor, my mom kept calling me every hour of so (in the middle of the night) to give me updates.  I was so confused during those calls because a call would wake me up and I would have forgotten what was happening and I remember being super confused and groggy.  But then, the final call came.  Two words was all my mom said in between happy sobs, "she's here."

That's really all the words to describe my sassy little bundle of firecracking, spitfire, squealing little niece.  She's here.  Her presence is always known, her opinions always shared, her spirit and personality so big and voluptuous sometimes the walls and ceiling can't hold her personality.  From the moment I met her, I knew she was going to be a firecracker, just like her mamma.

Miss Avery Jade spends most of her time squealing.  Boy oh boy does she love to squeal.  There is a home video from Rachelle's 3rd birthday party where Rachelle was sqquuuueeeeeealing like nobody's business.  And it is the exact same squeal Avery does.  It is adorable.  Avery definitely likes to share her opinions with us and she definitely knows what she wants.  She also knows when she looks cute and that baby girl can work it.  

She also has the best smile.  She is a very smiley baby and I looooooove her big smile when I walk in a room.  It is the best part of my day.  Her whole face brightens when she smiles and she looks like just about the happiest kid.

She does this weird thing where she stares at men.  Any guy that isn't her dad, she just stares at them.   When she met my boyfriend, she just fixed him with this intense stare for a full half hour.  No matter where he went in the room, her eyes followed.  She did not smile, she did not laugh, she just stared at him.  She was not sure if he was okay.  I sat down next to him and gave him a hug and said "look baby, he's my friend, he's okay!" And she looked from me to him from me to him and then he started making faces and she gave him the smallest smile.  She continued to stare at him with great intensity until her daddy came home, and then she was her squealy, happy, smiley self.  But not until daddy was home and was there to protect her!

This was when she was in the hospital for the flu.  She wasn't keeping anything down so she had to go on an IV.  It was so sad it broke my heart.  But this little firecracker is tough and she still smiled and kept light spirits during her stay.  She is so brave I am so proud of her.

 The day she was born.

I already gave her her birthday present! It is a phone that lights up and makes noise!  She loooooves phones and she only has an old phone of her dad's and I thought she would really like one that lite up and made noise.  My boyfriend was so sweet and got her a present too, I didn't even ask him to or anything.  He got her a cute little elephant that she can play with in the bath and it squirts water.

Here she is on the day she was born!

Baby girl, I can't believe I get to be your aunt.  I am so lucky and the most blessed girl in the whole world.  My boyfriend is completely in love with you and I am convinced he likes you more than he likes me.  I love you to the moon and back baby girl, thanks for being my niece.
