My baby.

I had a reflective day today. I knew that I had to go through some of Avery's old clothes but I have been putting it off for a while. Well, here are how many 0-6 months clothes she's got. I am not getting rid of them or anything, just taking them out of the general clothes populations to make my life a little easier.

Avery stayed at my mom and dad's last night. Today, when Avery was taking a nap, dad let me watch all the video he has taken of her since she was born. Jason couldn't watch it; it made him sad. It made me a little sad too. She was so little....SO little. I just can't believe how big she's gotten, just in 9 months. She is going to be 9 months old this weekend and I just can't believe how fast its gone. I know I say that all the time. All parents do. But its because it is so, so true. My dad pretty much got good footage each month of her life since we were in the hospital. It blows my mind, when watching each month concurrently like that, how much she really did change each month. She went from being a completely helpless, little baby who couldn't control her head, her arms, nothing, to each month getting more and more control. I watched her try and handle toys, to trying to sit up, to smiling, to trying to scoot. Its miraculous, completely miraculous.

I just can't believe that in 3 months, her first year of life will come to and end. And then, on to the next. I am so happy for the next stage, but so sad that I only have 3 months left of my baby being an infant. God has blessed me with her so much. And I never take one single second for granted. I love her so very much. So much.

Well, enough of that. Have a great week, everybody!!

It is so sad putting clothes away! I cried yesterday because our guy has already outgrown some 0-3 month clothes and he's only 1 month old :(

Your dad is so sweet to film her so often-you will treasure those videos forever!

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 …
