Avery 7 Months

Happy 7 Month Birthday Avery!!

Truth be told, I will be glad next year when I am not documenting every month she passes a "birthday." I think it makes it go by so much faster this way. Maybe it just goes by fast anyway. Slow down, time!!

Avery Grace is:

Eating 3 meals a day with rice or oatmeal and lost of different kinds of fruits and veggies. She is slowing down on bottles and eating more regular food. Next month starts meats!! She is learning how to put puffs in her mouth, also!

She loves to stand up. All. The. Time. We are trying to teach her how to crawl but she would much rather be standing up. We don't have to hold her up, we just have to help her keep balance. She is also starting to lift her knee up, as if to take a step.

She has 5 teeth, 4 on the bottom and 1 on top. And she clicks them together alot now. Shudder.

She is getting more hair these days!

She loves to put EVERYTHING in her mouth!

She loves the dogs!
She sleeps 8 - 10 hours a night, uninterupted.

She is wearing 9 - 12 month clothes, depending on the brand.

She is still in size 3 diapers.

She loves to be thrown around, bounced around or swung around. Especially by her daddy.

She loves to laugh!

She loves to talk. It's starting to change from "ba ga da" to sounding more like she is trying to talk to us. Before, she was just babbling. Now, she looks in your eyes and talks to you. It's so fun to listen to!
She loves to blow bubbles!

She takes her pacifier, but mostly just to sleep. If I put it in any other time, she just takes it out and chews on it. At least it won't be hard to get rid of!

She loves to YELL!! We are working on that yelling business, not that I can control it much.

She loves to kick, still loves her bath because she can kick the water, and loves to swim, because she can kick. She also loves her new jump-up because she can bounce and bounce and bounce!

I love you baby girl - you can stop growing for a while, if you want to. :-)

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

Our Trip to Orlando and Universal/Disney Travel Tips! (Long Post!!!)

Well, we just got back from our trip to Orlando! And I am tired and sore, but happy and so very glad we were able to do this as a family! Most of my Facebook peeps saw our pictures, but I wanted to share about our vacation and a little travel tips for those thinking of planning something similiar! 
Use a Travel Agent!
First and foremost - I booked my trip, basically last minute, through the amazing and wonderful Lana Kluge . Booking through a travel agent costs you, the consumer, NOTHING. It doesn't make your trip any more expensive and adds nothing to your end bill. What it does do is add a valuable service to your vacation, and that's exactly what Lana offered us. She has been to Disney multiple times and was able to answer all of my many questions up to, and while on, my vacation. Even with booking our resort, we were able to ask where our room was located, as the resort we stayed at (Art of Animation) is very large and I read people saying they had to walk a very long way …
