Water Baby

Check out my little fishy...she has no fear. If only she would close her mouth, she wouldn't drink half of the pool.

Father's Day Weekend at the lake

Happy Father's Day Brian!

This picture was taken right after Avery was born. I think it is so sweet. It was the first time father and daughter met. She has had him wrapped around her finger ever since. Brian, you are an awesome father, and thank you for giving me my sweet baby Avery. Happy Father's Day!

This was taken the day we got home from the hospital. Poor Reba looks a little sad though...she was still adjusting....and I think she is still adjusting to Avery 16 months later, Ha!
For the weekend, we decided to spend it at the lake with Meme, Papa, Bebe, and Shelbey. Brian took a vacation day on friday, so we could head out early. The weather was perfect, and we had a nice, relaxing weekend.

Brian teaching Shelbey how to drive the boat.


Of course, Avery had to get in on this action.
Overall, Avery did pretty well, but she did have a MAJOR tantrum on Saturday on the pontoon boat. Could she already be hitting the terrible two's???? I tried to cut her some slack, because I knew she was super tired from being on the boat and in the water two days in a row, but still....it was so awful. She is so stubborn, and knows exactly what she wants.

I came out of the trailer to find Avery playing in the dirt...yuck. I was trying to pack up to go home, so I just let her do it....she was having so much fun. That is a spoon she is using as a shovel. I think since she played in the sand at the lake so much, she thought it was ok to play in the dirt too.


More dirt action

Almost 16 months

I snuck in Avery's room last week and got this cute pic. Every night, before I go to bed, I love to sneek in and check out how she is sleeping. She never actually has the blanket on her, but is usually on top of it. She has become super attached to the blonde dog, Bella, and the monkey that she got at Jackson's Bday party. She has to go to sleep with both in her arms....too cute.

This morning I took her into the Dr. for 15 month checkup...I know....she is almost 16 months...oh well. Anyways, here are her stats:

Height: 32 1/2 95%
Weight: 21lbs 25%
Head: 17 1/2 25%

So far, she is looking like she will be tall and slender!

We spent this past weekend at Lake Livingston with Meme and Papa. We all had such a nice relaxing weekend. If was kind of a last minute thing, because Brian was supposed to fish in a tournament, but HE decided he wanted to skip it, and spend the weekend at the lake. I couldn't believe it when he suggested it, but of course I was in! Avery walked all over the land, and played in all of the leaves and dirt. Brian even showed her a live worm, which she picked up and flung at Papa....nice.

Avery loved playinging in the sand and water. She is definitly a lake baby. Between all of the time in the pool and lake, she is getting a pretty good tan line. And she is so fearless! I thought that she might be a little afraid of the waves (they were a little rocky on sat), but she just kept jumping in. I can't wait to take her to the beach in August!

Check out her hat her Papa got her (it's a fishing hat)
We took her to catch some perch Sunday morning, but she was more interesting in trying to crawl in the lake than actually fishing. We did catch a couple, which she wanted to pet....and even stuck her finger in the little fish's mouth. We are going to go back up to Livingston in Friday, and stay again, so I'm sure I will have a ton more pics soon!

Nurse Ash

I caught Avery going through my work bag again.... I think she thought it was a fancy necklace.

Busy Weekend (part two)

Last weekend, Rachel, Christine, and I hosted Chelsea's baby shower for baby Kaitlyn. I had so much fun with decorating for the ladybug theme. I think everything turned out really well, and we had a great turnout. Now all we need is baby Kaitlyn! Only 6 more weeks to go! Congrats Ryan and Chelsea!

I loved the cake! It was as yummy as it was cute!



More decor...

Busy Weekend (part one)

Congratulations Cody!!!

This weekend was jammed pack with a graduation, birthday party, and baby shower all within 2 days. Saturday morning, we watched Cody graduate from Oak Ridge HS at Sam Houston State. Way to go Cody, we are so proud of you!




The fam after Cody graduated....Avery didn't last too long in the stadium...daddy had to take her out to run in the grass...little stinker.


Classic face

Happy 6th Birthday Shelbey!
After we got home from the graduation, and Avery had a lil nap, it was time to take the long ride to shelbey's house (jk).



Avery loved the cake....of course she did NOT want me to help her eat it. She is so stubborn!


While everyone was playing, she found the box of leis that Court had sitting out. Without me telling her, she decided to put a couple on, and join the hawaiian theme...such a girl.
