Party Animal

We were at a baby shower this weekend for Avery's future not boyfriend, Baby Boy Giorgi.  The party started at 6pm and after an hour and a half drive, we were a little unsure as to how well it was going to go.  We fully expected a full melt down, or at least she would be winey and crash early.  The car ride over from the Giorgi's to the party made us even more concerned as she screamed the entire 15 minute ride in front of Mary's sister and Jimmy's mom.  However when we got to the party, we got the complete opposite.

Avery enjoyed talking and smiling with all the people.  There was about 30 people there so there was a dull roar of everyone talking over each other and Avery wanted to be a part of it so was yammering up a storm.  She got to meet a ton of new people and greeted them with a smile.

Smiling as she greets everyone.

Laughing at a joke from Mary's dad Tom.

Later on in the evening after her regular bedtime she started to get a little fussy so we took her downstairs to get away from all the people.  We found a jumparoo down there and put her in it.  It was love at first sight.  She had the biggest smile and had a blast.  The below video is a snippet of her going bonkers for about 30 minutes and wearing herself out.  She spent the rest of the party sleeping upstairs and the entire ride home.  The first thing we did when we got home was ordered one of these things from Amazon.  I can't wait for it to show up so she can have some more fun.  She even enjoyed helping me pick out this video.  When I played it on the computer screen this morning she started kicking her feet and laughing.
