Oooh, I just love her!!!

When we got Avery back on Sunday, I thought she looked like she grew an inch! She looks like such a little girl to me now. Her legs are getting less chunky, her hair is getting longer. Sigh.

This is her favorite "book" right now. It's got pictures of her bubba and sissy.

We are getting in to some unchartered territory right now. She is starting to get upset when she sees the kids and then they go. Thursday night, after they left, she cried and cried, "bubba!!!" Over and over. Breaks my heart!

She must have been really hungry tonight. She was standing by her dad at the fridge saying "app-ease!" (Apples and please in one word.)

Her new thing is throwing tantrums, especially when we aren't getting her food fast enough or if we say "no." She smothers her hands in her face and cries. I swear she looks like a teenager. We just laugh (without her seeing) and just ignore her.

But lately, she's just a lover and is in a mood to give lots of hugs and kisses. What a great stage!

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…

Dancing With Dad

I have been working on a project these last couple of weeks for my previous company. Yesterday, I was working on my computer and heard roaring laughter coming from Avery's room. I walk in and found Jason and Avery dancing and singing away. 

 By sheer coincidence, this popped up on my Timehop today. Avery was only 1 in this picture.

Boy, are these kiddos lucky to have such a great dad! It makes me heart melt.
