Happy Father's Day, Daddy


I love you sooooo much. I love the way you make me laugh. I love it when you tickle me. I love it when you play with me and just spend time with me. I love it when we cuddle. I love to give you kisses! I am so glad that God chose you to be my Daddy. I LOVE YOU! Happy Father's Day!

We had the privilege of attending Marsha and Tyler's wedding today! It was gorgeous! It rained during the ceremony, but that just made it more memorable. They had a butterfly release at the end of the ceremony.... Avery wasn't sure what to think about the butterflies! Avery did great even though we were out past her bedtime. She even danced with the bride! Marsha and I have been friends since 1st grade. She was my maid of honor. It was a special day! We are so happy for them and can't wait til they start making their own babies! Here are a couple pictures of Avery with Marsha's presents before the wedding!

First playdate with Thomas

Today Avery and Thomas had their first playdate! Thomas was born the day before Avery. His mom, Laura, and I went through our pregnancies together including all of the childbirth classes, etc. She was due one week before me. I was admitted on Tuesday (2 weeks early) and she called me Wednesday morning to tell me she was in labor. Thomas was born Wed., Avery was born Thurs.

We began the playdate by hanging out in Thomas' room. I think they really enjoyed "playing" together. Then we went to the pool. It was a great day! I can't believe it took 5 months for us to get them together for the first time! Here are some pictures from the day....enjoy!

5 Months

Avery is 5 months old now. She is such a joy! She is sitting independently for short stretches of time now. We are practicing every day! She loves to smile, laugh that cute little belly laugh, and squeal. She loves to be tickled and have raspberries blown on her belly! She still loves bath time. She's now eating every 4 hours during the day with a dreamfeed at 1030p. Our day starts at 730a. We're eating solids twice a day now. So far her favorite seems to be pears and avocado. I've been making my own babyfood as well. I've made sweet potatoes, avocado, pears, and green beans so far. I'll take a picture soon of my freezer full of baby food!
