I've been trying my best to take some video footage of Avery doing totally adorable things. You know, those cute, precious, two-year-old things that she does all day long - when NOT being filmed.
It's not been easy. I feel a little like one of those National Geographic videographers/documentarians who have to hide out for hours on end just to get the perfect footage of some rare, exotic animal doing something rare, exciting, and...exotic.
As a result, I have literally minutes upon minutes of footage to share.
Minutes upon minutes of Avery in her PJ's.
Minutes upon minutes of Avery with wild-woman hair and a cheeto-crusted face.
Minutes upon minutes of the very rare, very wild, Avery in her oh-so-natural environment.
I did it all for you, people. All for you.
I've spent thousands of dollars on adorable clothes and bows, only to have $3.99 pj's from Gap, teeny tiny bows from Walmart, and one sweet little girl with a crusty face, recorded for posterity's sake.
Ahhhh... What can you do?
If you watched the video and kindly overlooked the fact that Avery had NO BLOOMERS on --- bless you, bless you.
Bloomers and a bow are quite possibly two of the most important things that a Southern little girl can be wearing to accessorize her Southern wardrobe. Non-bloomer wearing is tantamount to going naked. It's just not decent. Not at all.
I hope that my Southern friends will look past the utter indecency of my diaper-clad toddler. It was a pregnant-mommy moment of weakness. I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to show off the cuteness of my little girl in this footage - even if it meant sacrificing a little of my pride and Southern Mommy legitimacy.
