Happy Mother’s Day

Avery is more than 9 months old and weighed in today at 9 lb 8 oz.   She is still tiny, but is as powerful and precious as ever.  Overall, she’s very healthy and we’re enjoying every minute of her.  She smiles and laughs a ton, reaches for things, rolls over, eats like a champ, and is gaining more head control every day.   She only cries about 30 seconds a few times a week (no kidding), is sleeping really well at night, and loves to snuggle.  Being her mom is the greatest gift.    Although long overdue, here are some of the sweet pictures we’ve taken over the last few months…

"If someone doesn't feed me soon, this innocent sea horse is gonna lose a nose..."


"aaaah, yes.... nap time..."

"these people make me laugh..."

"And then... the little brown bear said..."


"check out my long lashes..."

"swaddle, smaddle....my feet want to be FREE!" (always)


"On my way to Home Depot..."

Smiling WV baby...

From smiling to cracking up...

"I think the Easter Bunny will be quite impressed with my egg decorating skills..."


"Okay, it's Easter and I'm looking all adorable and stuff... where's that bunny?"


"Thanks Easter Bunny!"

    It’s awesome to see just how far she has come over the course of her life. She is adorable!! Oh, and my first daughter was only 12 lbs when she was 1 years old, small is definitely okay. She is 8 today and is still an itty bitty thing. 🙂 Take care and hug that sweet girl of yours.
