Quick! Call CPS!

Little Ms. Attitude decided she was having nothing to do with being at Aunt Ashy and Uncle Ben's new house today while mom helped paint. She threw a fit the whole time we were there! I knew she was tired and tried to get her to sleep but she refuses to sleep if something is going on or in a new place. Wonderful. Awesome. Because of course she is tired after sleeping 14 hours last night. The only thing that kept her happy was playing in the cooler. Yep...the cooler. Because my child is neurotic and won't play with her toys but frozen water is the best thing in the world.

And the rest of these are a blur because 1. She was moving so quickly with her hands ice to mouth to ice to mouth to ice to mouth. 2. I was laughing so hard it was next to impossible to get a decent picture anyway.

After we closed the lid to the cooler the screecher came out! She was happy with this though:

Can we say someone is starting to teeth? Oh, and yes, that is beer in the cooler. Mother of the Year! Woot!

Holy blog overhaul!

My blog got a face lift. :) I'm WILL start updating more often. Not just about Avery (let's not lie, she's the starring role!) but also about life around here.

But for now it's 11pm. So I bid you adieu.

She's doing great!

Avery is old pro at sitting now! She's content sitting on the floor and looking around or playing with little toys. It's too cute. She's also old hat at rolling belly to back. I just went and checked on her (as I do every night before bed) and she's laying head at the foot of the bed on her back instead of her belly. Now if she would just roll the other way consistently. Maybe I should edit that to say "to WANT to roll the other way consistently". She can do it, she's just stubborn. I wonder where she got that from.

She is LOVING food and now knows that what momma puts in her mouth off of a spoon is food and she wants some too! She was pretty mad last night when I wouldn't give her chicken or salad. She had to settle for stage 2 sweet potatoes.

We made a voyage to Indy yesterday for Simone and Josh's wedding! I don't have pics of the wedding because I was trying to keep the screecher quiet but I have a few pics of Avery at the reception. She's always mesmerized by the camera and it kept her occupied for 0.08 seconds. She quickly moved on the other such fun things: the fork, the knife, the water glass, lifting mommy's dress, etc. ::sigh::

Now that we have power back (we were living like the Amish for 2 whole days!) I'm trying to get laundry done and the fridge cleaned out. I'm sitting her right now relishing the AC because, of course, we lose power on one of the freaking HOTTEST weeks of the year. Good thing Grandma and Grandpa still had power. We were sweating in places we didn't know you could sweat!

Diaper butt

So cute!

6 months old!

Avery went to the doctor yesterday for her 6 month check up. She weighs 17lbs 12oz and is 26 1/2 inches long! She is in the 75th percentile for her height and weight! She was showing the doctor how well she sits up all by herself. She was right on track with all of her milestones and we're still working our way through stage one foods. Mommy learned last night that Aves LOVES bananas! When she is introduced to all the stage one foods it's ok to start stage two. We aren't in a hurry though. We've been working with a sippy cup for a couple weeks. She's still not too sure about it. Hopefully we get it figured out soon though. She's been doing great. Growing and learning new things all the time. She's changing so fast.

And with that I leave you with another adorable pic. Love you all!
