2 months!

Avery turned 2 months yesterday. I can't believe how fast time goes with a baby. I love every minute with her. She had her 2 month check-up yesterday. Here are her stats:

weight: 10 lbs. 6 oz. (39%)
height: 23 in. (75%)
head: 39.3 cm. (65%)

So she has gained about 3 lbs. and grown 2 inches. Getting shots was no fun. We laid her on the table. I was up by her head holding her hands and she looked right up at me. I felt so bad. She screamed pretty good. She slept for awhile after. When she woke up she was not happy. I saw her very first tear come down her face. It took awhile for the medicine to kick in and even then she was still a little fussy. Today she is doing great though. Hopefully 4 months doesn't come to fast.

They gave her some Tasmanian Devil band-aids.

We love our little girl and so glad she is feeling better!

Yesterday our friends Travee and Claudia invited us to go swimming at their neighborhood pool. I wasn't sure if I wanted Avery to get in, but we got her in her swimsuit and she had her first experience in the pool. She was pretty cute in her swimming suit!

She wasn't too sure at first.

After getting use to it she loved it.

Thanks Travee and Claudia!
Now we are ready for California next week!

Some other big news. Last night Avery slept from about 10-6! It felt nice to sleep through the night. We will see if we are lucky again tonight!

Another Avery Update!

It has been awhile since the last Avery post. So here is an update with lots of pictures and some cute videos!

 She is doing great and is lots of fun. She is still very content and a pretty good sleeper. Her and Ben take lots of naps together. I love this first picture of them.


She has wonderful cousins. Little Sophie loves "baby" and is so cute with her.

She loves bath time. When we take her out she starts screaming pretty good.

She is starting to get more personality and I love it. I love her smile and all the cute faces she makes.

Here is a video of her smiling

Our little strawberry

We blessed her on August 5th in our ward. Ben did a wonderful job and she did great. We had everyone over to our house after for some yummy home made cafe rio salads! Thanks everyone for coming. We love you all and are blessed to have such great people in our life. More pictures to come, but here is another four generations picture.

She is doing better with tummy time!

She has now found her hands and loves chomping on them.

This little girl is the best. I love being her mom and spending all my time with her!

One night after I fed her she had zonked on my lap. I looked down and saw her doing this:

She did it on and off for about ten minutes. It made me laugh. I'm glad I got a video of it! Love her!
