Avery's 5th Birthday

So I am finally getting around to blogging about Avery's birthday.  We had it at a local skating rink, and I think it turned out pretty well.  The beginning started off a little rocky, as all the kids (and parents) were trying to figure out the whole skate thing, but I was happy with the way that it turned out.

And I had to include a pic of the birthday girl on her actual birthday, last wednesday.  We celebrated with a birthday donut of course.

I can't believe that my sweet girl is already 5, and is starting kindergarten this year, ahhhh!  My, how time flies!  Thank you to all that could make it to the party to help us celebrate!

8 Months!

My sweet baby is 8 months!  Well, he was on the 13th :).  This kid is realy the smiliest, happiest, little kid.

I took him to the pedi on Thursday for just a re-check on his ears, and guess what??? 2 ear infections!  Poor baby!  I'm glad we were just there for a check, because he really didn't have too many symptoms.  He really wasn't too fussy, nor did he have a fever.  I did notice him touching his ear that morning, but that was really it.

Here are a few things about my boy :)
  • STILL no teeth!
  • Wearing size 3 diapers
  • is getting a little bit better about food.  He actually likes pears and mum-mums, but that is about it.  He will only actually eat a few spoonfulls of most everything.
  • Weighs 16lbs
  • Drinks 6oz at a time
  • Wearing size 6-9months clothing
  • STILL gets up at least once at night :(
  • not crawling quite yet, but he is getting to were he will play more and more on his tummy

 And I just love seeing these two play have so much fun together

Valentine's Day 2012

So I know I am a little behind on the postings lately, I am gonna try to be better :)  It just seems like these last few weeks have been super busy.  Most days, when I come home from work, I am exhausted, and as soon as both kiddos are asleep, I am right behind them.  Avery's birthday party was this weekend, and Brady turned 8 months last week, so I should be working on those posts soon. 

Anyways, Avery was excited as always for Valentine's Day to arrive.  We added another charm to her charm bracelet, and Brian got her pink roses.  I think it's so sweet when I see a daddy give their daughter flowers, and it's even sweeter when I see Avery's smile in response.

At their school, they have breakfast for the parents and kids.  It was nice that both Brian and I got to attend.

I ended up having to work a little later than usual, but we enjoyed some Chili's takeout.  Valentine's Day sure seems to have such a different meaning now that we have 2 kiddos, lol.  I think I actually went to bed early, oh well, that's life I guess. 
Hope you got to celebrate with the one's you love!
