Go Texan Day

Avery was so excited about Go Texan Day this year! For her birthday she received brand new cowgirl boots from me and Brian, and Tillie took her to Cavander's for a new cowgirl wardrobe. She was sooo excited to go to school on Friday!

I think she looks so much like Brian here. We are planning on going to the Rodeo soon, so I am sure I will do a post about that soon! Yeehaw!

Happy Birthday my sweet baby!

Yesterday was Avery's 4th Birthday! I cannot believe how fast the last 4 years have flown by! Yesterday morning we surprised her in bed with her favorite pink sprinkled donut with bday candles.

She cannot wait for her birthday party this Saturday! Pics to come soon!

Its getting closer...

Well this pic pretty much sums up the vast majority of my weekend....ugh! I HAVE to stay motivated though, only 2 months and 2 weeks left to go!

Brian did get a great start on Brady's room. Goodbye pink strips.....

Hello Navy!

Brady's furniture arrived this week, so we are working on getting the room painted so it can all be assembled. We still have to add the stripes and paint and put up the chair rail. It is getting closer to Brady's arrival too, as of Saturday, I am 23 weeks!

And I had to end with these two snuggle buddies. Daddy wore her out this weekend, since he was on Daddy-duty all weekend while I worked on schoolwork. These sleepy heads slept till 9:45!

Happy Valentines Day 2012

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Brian surprised Avery with roses and a balloon this morning, she was so tickled and excited to get "red roses" from her Daddy.

Here are a couple of pics of the valentines I made for her class party. Of course, I got the idea off of Pinterest, but I think they turned out pretty cute. All I had to buy was the suckers, and just printed petals and leaves with my printer. I don't remember all of this when I was a kid....

Sweet n Sassy Avery

This Sunday, Aunt Chrissy took a few of her favorite girls to Sweet n Sassy for a Valentine's Day Makeover! Avery and Reagan had a pizza party, had their hair, makeup, and nails done, and rode in the famous pink limo! Aunt Chrissy is the best. This morning went to school with half of the make-up on and glitter hair...oh well!

Avery also got to spend the majority of the weekend with the Holaks so I could work on school work ALLLLL's ok, my days are numbered. I can't wait for the day when I can do whatever I want on the weekend....even if it is cleaning the house and taking care of kiddos!

Here is a small clip that Christine sent me of the Avery and Kaitlyn singing and dancing together. I am so glad these girls got to have a slumber party together!

I have now surpassed the halfway point with this pregnancy! Yayyyy! On Saturday, I began my 21st week! I feel like this pregnancy is flying by, especially since I have been so busy with grad school. But....I just looked at my ticker, and I have less than 3 months till graduation! Another Yayyy!!! As far as pregnancy goes, I am feeling pretty good, just the usual pregnancy stuff. I am really feeling him move alot these days. Avery has yet to actually feel him move, but I'm sure it is only a matter of time :)

Brian and I worked hard this past weekend clearing out the playroom to begin getting ready for the nursery. Until I pass boards this fall, I still need my office, so Avery's toys had to be re-organized and moved into her room until then. Brady's furniture should be arriving next week sometime, so we had to get on the ball. The next step is painting.

Here are a few ultrasound pics from my 20 week anatomy and dating ultrasound. According to my ultrasound report, he looks healthy, and right on track. His body and head were all measuring about 19 weeks, except for his legs which were measuring 20weeks. I looks like we might have another long-legged baby on our hands!

This was the best face shot I could get. I am debating on coming back for the 3D/4D ones later on....

My little Belle

Last week, Avery participated in the "Be a Belle" dance clinic for the Montgomery high school dance team. A few of her buddies from ballet class were going, and I thought she would have a fun time. The clinic consisted of a clinic for a few hours on Saturday morning, and then concluded with a performance at the high school basketball game the following friday night.

Avery and Kailyn

Oh, and did you notice the pearls? She has been wearing them consistently for weeks now. Her teacher at school calls her June Cleaver :)

Both Brian and I were very excited to see that the huge crowd at the basketball game didn't seem to phase her too much. Although she didn't remember all the moves, she at least enjoyed the performance!

These clinics bring back so many of my Strutter memories! On the way to the clinic, I tried to prep her by describing what a dance/drill team was. She initially thought she was just going to her ballet class. I told her that I was on a drill team, but I don't think she believed me, lol. It may be time to bust out the old Strutter photos and videos!
