"Hi Avery!"

So either Avery doesn't know her name or she thinks that everyone else's name is Avery. I guess the third possibility is that we (and everyone else) always say "Hi, Avery!"

Here is a prime example:

I am going in to get Avery this morning to go to a doctor's appointment.

Me: Good Morning Avery!

Avery: Hi, Avery!

Me: Hi, Avery!

Avery: Hi, Avery!

Me: Hi, Mommy!

Avery: Hi, Avery!

Ok, this ^^^^ is counterproductive.

Then I took Avery to a friend's house to watch her while I went to a doctor's appointment. We walk in the front door.

Katie: Hi, Avery!

Avery: Hi, Avery!

Natalie: Say "Hi, Mrs. Katie!"

Avery: Hi, Avery!

Then I'm getting ready to leave.

Natalie: Okay, Mommy is going bye-bye.

Avery: Bye, Avery!

I laugh.

Apparently she thinks that "Hi, Avery" and "Bye, Avery" are the everyday greetings and goodbyes for everyone, regardless of their names or titles. We're going to have to work on that one.
