Avery's 3 month birthday was yesterday. She is such a sweet baby! We are very lucky to be her parents. She is laying in my lap smiling at me right now. She's a really good baby, too. She only cries when she's hungry or sleepy. Other than that she's pretty laid back. She's also been sleeping through the night for a week now. Here are some pictures we took last night.

The dress she is wearing was mine when I was a baby.
Her hair is now long enough to put bows in it without them falling out!
I go back to work tomorrow after a 12 week maternity leave. I'm very glad I was able to take 12 weeks off. I've enjoyed spending so much time with Avery. I have mixed emotions about going back to work. I really like my job and I have some really good friends at work that I've missed seeing everyday. So I'm ready to go back and get back in the swing of things. I'm also sad to leave Avery, but she will be in the capable hands of her daddy so that makes me feel better :)
To celebrate going back to work, I treated myself to a pedicure. Then we all went to the driving range and Avery and I watched Adam hit golf balls. Avery loves being outside and it was a beautiful day.

Then tonight we went to...
We ate dinner with my aunt Kay and then walked around Bridge Street. It was a great day!
I have thoroughly enjoyed my first Mother's Day. I love being a mom and am so grateful that I have a beautiful, healthy baby girl. We had baby dedication at church today and it was very special. Avery wore a beautiful dress that her Nona (Adam's mom) made for her. Our parents were able to come and go to church with us so we got to spend Mother's Day with our moms as well.
Adam did a good job making me feel like a special mom. He put a lot of thought and time into my presents.
Happy Mother's Day!
