Happy Halloween!

Hope everyone has a great evening. I am so excited because my mom is coming down tonight and we are going to dress Avery up in her Pumpkin suit, mainly for pictures, but we may knock on a few doors while we are at it :) She is back to sleeping through the night (for now). She will still cough but she just goes right back to sleep. Last weekend we went to the Pumpkin Patch and just hung out around the house. Her and I were sitting in front of a mirror and I would make a funny face and noise and then she would look at herself and try and imitate it. It was hilarious! Of course when I went to grab the video camera, she stopped and would just stare at the camera. Here are the pics from last weekend. I will post more hopefully later this weekend.

Who does Avery look like?

I would be the first to say Avery looks just like her Daddy, but I took some pictures of her tonight just like some that both Kevin and I had. Let me know who you think she looks like. I am starting to lean towards me!!!!

Avery's First Cold

Avery has officially had her first cold. It was pretty miserable there for a few days, but we are starting to get better now. It started last Saturday and she couldn't sleep without me holding her for 3 straight nights and I had actually caught her cold, as well. Now she is sleeping; however, she wakes herself up with this awful cough. During the day, she couldn't be better, just a runny nose. My parents are coming tonight to hang out and watch her while Kevin and I go to the UT game. We couldn't be more excited, because we got the tickets last minute yesterday and we have never gone to a game there before. Here are some pictures of Avery I took this morning - You can finally see her teeth. She will probably be getting her top teeth before long, because she gnaws on EVERYTHING!!!

Quick Update

Avery had her 4 month check up on Monday and she did really good with her shots. The next day she was running fever and seemed to be in a little pain, so we gave her Tylenol. She weighs 12 lbs. and 13 ounces (25%) and 24 1/2 inches (50%). I was actually surprised at her weight, because I thought she would be at least 14 lbs. The Dr. said we could start introducing her to cereal and water, so on the way home I went and bought "big girl" bowls and spoons and a variety of baby foods. She didn't like the cereal that much at first; however, I followed the instructions on the box and it was not cereal consistency (that is probably why). We have fed her about 1 Tbsp every night and she is starting to open her mouth for it and smile. I think she is starting to like. This weekend we will introduce her to a vegetable!

Also, this morning Kevin and I went to drop Avery off at school and she had her first school pictures taken. We can't wait to see how they turned out.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

It's official!

It's official! Avery has her first two little teeth coming in. For a second there, I thought Kevin and I were crazy or going to have a fussy little girl. She really hasn't been that bad, but we could tell something seemed a little different with her. I tried for two nights to get the picture below and it is still hard to see the teeth. The one of her face - is exactly what she does everytime I try to get a picture (and sticking out her tongue). Avery's been doing really well! She went to Physical Therapy today and her Therapist, Amy, said she is doing really good. We have even seen improvements with her flattening. On Monday, she will officially be 4 months old and we will go to her check up. I will update everyone with her stats! Have a good rest of the week and TGIF!
