3 months

I'm not quite sure how Avery is already 3 months old. Somehow we missed a 2 month post and we are already 3+ months.
Call me biased but I think she's pretty cute!

You are still the most fantastic baby a mama could ever ask for. You are so happy all the time, you smile like crazy and on your 3 month "birthday" you giggled for the first time. You still love to tell stories however the little baby coos are starting to sound a bit more like screeching. You are grabbing the toys on your bouncy seat and can lift your head and tummy off the floor during tummy time. I think you are addicted to you swaddle blanket, I'm not sure what we are going to do when you are too big for it. But you've been sleeping 11 hours at night and taking 3-4 naps during the day, so bless the swaddle blanket. We had you at the doctor a week before your "birthday" and you weighed 13 pounds. Too bad we can't all double our weight in 3 months and be so cute! You still can wear your 0-3 month clothes but most of your fall wardrobe is 3-6 months. We are still working through the size 1 diapers but are ready to graduate to size 2. Fewer blowouts=less laundry for me. You are eating every 3-4 hours, usually closer to 4. My only small complaint is that you r.e.f.u.s.e to take a bottle. Choke. Spit. Gag. Wont even close your mouth. Naughty. But since that is my one and only complaint I'll keep my mouth shut. We love you so much and love to see the way that you are changing each and every day. We thank God for you and our hearts are full.
Love, Daddy and Mommy

The Big 1st day

We've had quite a few milestones around here in the last couple weeks, but this one deserves a post all of its own. Jackson has now graduated from being a preschooler to being a big time, hot stuff kindergartner! He LOVES it. Here are a few pictures that highlight his first day.

Some reflections on Kindergarten so far...
- We got to go out to the playground 3 times today!!!
-Chapel was my favorite part of today.
-I get to sit next to my new friend Harris. (I don't think he sits next to his friend Harris anymore...)
-But how come all the other kids get to wear junky clothes to school!!!!

His teacher Mrs. Johnson said he is doing very well. He is social and smiling. And therefore not sitting next to Harris anymore! :) He is also a very engaged learner which is music to his teacher mama's ears.
