I'm finally on vacation!

First of all, I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! I can't believe I haven't logged on in over 6 months. I guess you could say I've been busy! :) We have honestly been busy between enjoying Avery, work, indoor soocer, Bible study and the busy weekends. It has been a great year and scary how half of it can go by so quickly right before your eyes. Avery is a little over 18 months and is very ornery. (side note: it took me the last 15 minutes to figure out how to spell "ornery")! Who knew it started with an "o".

We just got back from the best Christmas ever!!! I was asked what my favorite gift was this year and it was truly just soaking in all of Avery's reactions to Christmas and the wonderful traditions. To my unbelief, she knew exactly how to rip open a package without question. I think we might be in trouble in the future.

On Avery's most recent check up, she measured 33 in tall (85%) and 21 lbs (12%). She is a picky eater, but I really need to start working on making sure all of what she is eating is nutritious. At the 18 month check up, they give you a check list of developmental norms. It was funny, because two of them were "Can you child jump" and "Can your child walk backwards." I had no idea if Avery could do these things, so I asked her in the lobby. She just ignored me, but as soon as she was in the room with Dr. Sharp, she started jumping and walking backwards as if she was showing off in front of the Dr. It was hilarious! Needless to say, Dr. Sharp changed my responses to the questions as I mismarked them.

It has literally been over a year, since I have been on vacation and it truly impacts you to go that long without a break! I feel FREE! Kevin and I are already planning on where we'll go this upcoming year. Kevin's birthday is this Friday, Jan 1st! I broke down and bought him a Wii. They've only been out for several years and I think it would be fun to do together. I really just want to get old school Super Mario Bros. I can't wait to play that! I am posting the only recent picture I have on my laptop, but as soon as I get our Christmas pics downloaded, I'll post some.

I pray that everyone has a wonderful 2010! I think it is going to be great year!
