My Little Helper
Avery's always been my little 'helper' by being right beside me where ever I am. Now that she's getting bigger, it's fun watching her try to actually do the things that I'm doing.
Now that she has her own little vacuum cleaner, she's no longer afraid of the real one. When she hears the roar of the big one, she runs to grab hers and vacuums along beside me.
When I'm emptying the dishwasher, she's right there getting plates out and putting them in the cabinets. Of course they may not be the right cabinet, but I enjoy watching her be proud of herself after she's accomplished her chore.
Avery is also a great cook. She sits on the counter beside me while I fix dinner. Most of the time she sticks her spoon in too and helps me stir. If she is not on the counter beside me, she's digging out pots and pans and handing them to me. "Dere," she says. (There)
It is such a joy watching her grow up. I can wait of course, but in some ways, it's hard not to say that I can't wait to see her when she's 7 or 12 and really is trying to help me vacuum and cook dinner.
Being a mother brings such joy!
