Not At All wordless Wednesday!

So, it's been a wonderful weekend, with all the rain! This morning, it was rainy and great outside and I thought, "Avery's got golashes, I wonder what size they are?"  They are fours, great! That's Avery's size now. I wanted her so badly to wear these adorable golashes. She got them at a baby shower and I've been dying for her to wear them.

But alas, Avery did not want those on her feet. They wouldn't go on easily for her and she lost her patience after the 10th time of me trying to shove her feet in them. Babies just don't know how to move their feet to fit in shoes, do they?

So instead, I put her in her tennis shoes. "Baby's First Nikes!" We got these as a hand me down from a girl I used to work with. So cute!

She was clapping here because she loves to clap now. She will do something and then clap, so we have to say, "Yay, Avery!" and clap too.

Such a cute little stinkeroo!

Last night, her daddy and I just played and played with her. Our stuff is kind of everywhere in the house because we are in the process of packing, so Sophia had some dress up stuff in the living room that we were going through. Check out that belly!

Oh, and by the way - WE ARE TAKING STEPS NOW!! Yesterday morning, I stood her up and said, "Come here!" She took two steps and down she came. Last night, I just had to get her daddy to see, and she did it a few more times!

Oh my gosh, we cheered and cheered. She didn't know what she did that was so great, but she sure did like the accolades! I called Jason at work to tell him and he said next time she does that, we need to push her down. We aren't ready for her to walk yet. Once she figures out what she is doing, it is all over. That girl is already a moving machine, I just can't imagine when she starts walking. Or running. Oy.

T-Minus 16 days till the big move! I am so excited I can't stand it. Lots of befores and afters in our future on this blog....

I will post the walking video as soon as I can....have a great day everyone!

I LOVE that zebra print cross on her shirt! That is too cute! It would have matched those boots perfectly...maybe if she starts walking soon she'll get the boots on :)

Good luck packing everything up!

Wow, she's learning to walk. That is such a sweet time.

LOL on Jason. I said the same thing with our first. Once they're mobile everything changes.

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 …
