Merry Christmas!

First of all, Merry Christmas to everyone! It has been awhile since I have posted because we had one crazy week with Avery (or weekend anyway)! Not last Monday, but the Monday before, we took Avery in for her check up and she was sick, so we didn't get the shots. Well on Friday, I noticed her really breathing hard, so I felt like I should take her in to see Dr. Sharp. It turns out that she did have some wheezing, so we started her on a nebulizer. I was to do that every four hours. That same day around 3pm, I got Avery up from her nap and she felt super hot... She was running 103.3, so I called the doctor. They told us to go do a chest x-ray to make sure it wasn't Pneumonia. We did and it wasn't; so the next morning , we took Avery back to the doctors and they said she had two horrible ear infects that caused a blister in her right ear. Poor baby! We got a list of about 5 or 6 meds and went home. She is finally getting back to normal. Yippee!

I will have you all know that Avery is a little stinker and by little I mean "BIG!" I will have every bit of what I dished out to my parents and some more probably. I picked up Avery from school and she had bitten a little girl in her class. I am sure it is partly from her teething, but the poor little girl had red teeth marks on her knee. I looked at Avery and told her "Avery Brooke Aderholt...we do NOT bite." She just looked back up me and smiled! Also, the ladies that watch her said that "she is the sweetest and happiest baby, until you take something from her or re-direct her and then she has a hot temper." Good Heavens - pray for me :)!!!!!

Here are soem recent pictures of our little stinker:

As it turns out, I was tagged to post a picture from Angie

Here were the rules:

1. choose the 4th picture folder on my computer
2. choose the 4th picture
3. explain the picture
4. and tag 4 more people to do the same

The funny thing is that my first stab at it didn't work, since my 4th folder only had two pictures in it. They were from 2007, so I just started with 2008. This picture is of me and my Grandma Lucy in Victoria, TX at my cousin, Candice's, wedding in March of this year. I obviously was pretty pregnant. Little did I know at that moment that my life would be so for every changed in a little over two months and I can't not think back of times before Avery and try to picture it being just Kevin and I. I am so blessed!

6 month check up

I took Avery to the doctors on Monday for her 6 month check up. She wasn't able to get her shots, since she has Bronchiolitis, but should be able to by next Monday. Here are her stats: 15.0 lbs (25%), 26 1/2 in (75%) and 43 cm (70%)! So she is completely opposite from me at this point; she is tall, skinny and has a large head :) Dr. Sharp did say that she will not be needing a helmet - Yippee!!! We were starting to fret it a little, but her head looks fine. It is still slightly asymmetrical, but not noticably to me. We are gettig so excited for Christmas. I can't wait to see little Avery and Reid playing together. They haven't seen each other in a few months, so they should be able to really play now. I don't have any new pics, but will post some as soon as do.

Holiday Season!

I am so glad holiday season is here! We had a great Thanksgiving and hope you all did too! I can't believe it is already 3 weeks until Christmas. Luckily, this year I was on top of the gift buying and have all but one gift left to get. There has been a lot going on in my world, so I am sorry I haven't posted in a while. I applied to take a voluntary separation package with Dell, but it got declined. They just won't get rid of me! Oh well, I guess things happen for a reason. I was; however, looking forward to spending the extra time with Avery and pursuing my new career goal...teaching! We'll just have to see how it all works it self out, because it will the way it is supposed to "in the end." As far as Avery, she is just growing every day. She has started getting on her knees and rocking back and forward. She is actually pretty mobile. I can't turn my head for too long, because she will be halfway across the room. I need to baby proof my house SOON! Any advice is welcome. So far, I am thinking about just getting a gate to seal off the entire kitchen area and I need to look into a new coffee table. I have my plugs covered for the most part. Am I missing anything? I am sure I have forgotten something, but will try to get it done in the next month. Here are some recent pics of Avery. I take her to her 6 month check up next Monday. Please pray that her head has fixed itself and we won't need to buy a helmet for her. Looking at it, I think it has, but you never know. Anyways, I will post about her stats after her appointment.
