1 month

Avery Anne,
You've had a busy first month of life. You've had lots of people come to love on you, had your belly button cauterized twice, you sported your first bathing suit (see picture #2 above), I'm quite sure you've gained almost 4 pounds (mostly cheeks and chins), been to the beach (at less than 2 weeks old), been on vacation to Duck Lake (at 3 weeks old), and gone to Arcadia for the 4th of July (at almost 4 weeks old), and just last night you slept for 7 hours in a row! What a lovely surprise for me. :)

I'm guessing that you weigh close to 10 pounds, you can still wear newborn clothes but now fit in the 0-3 month outfits too. You wear a size 1 diaper, and still sleep for much of the day. You are often awake in the morning and again in the evening, but the afternoon you reserve for snoozing. You go to bed around 10pm and I usually feed you between 2 and 3am and then again between 5 and 6am. You've started giving us your first smiles which we LOVE. You have beautiful blue eyes and haven't really lost much of your hair. We are working on developing a love (tolerance is maybe a better word) for the car seat but are glad that you take a paci. Your brothers love to hold you and they often laugh at the silly faces you make. Jackson likes to help you out by covering you up and giving you your paci when you spit it out. Will has been renamed "Captain Obvious"..."Mom, she's crying", "Mom, she spit her paci out", "Mom, she just pooped".

We are more in love with you every day little girl and we are so glad you are part of our family!

p.s You might not know it yet, but you have the best big brothers in the world.

The proofs are in!

Oh how I wouldn't love to stop the hands of time. It is hard to believe that it is the middle of July already. I'm not sure where the days go, but somehow summer is half over and my baby is already 5 weeks old. I'm quite sure we were just in the hospital!

We had a newborn picture session done with Avery when she was 2 weeks old. The proofs are hot of the press so head to Photos by Kaity and check them out. (Go to Client Proofs, our password is avery). I especially love the pictures of all three kids together. These make my heart swell just a little. And my word has the girl gotten bigger since these were taken. Like I said, I'd love to stop the hands of time.

Soon to come, some pictures of the big brothers (no, I haven't forgotten about them) and pictures of the the chunky cheeks we have acquired in the last couple weeks.
