5 months old

Avery is 5 months old today. Time flies! The past 5 months has been great.

Avery, here are some things we love about you:

  • You love to suck on your middle two fingers. This is something you just started doing about 2 weeks ago.

  • You like to take naps on people (and we like to nap with you).
  • You sleep all night long in your crib
  • You can now ride in your stroller like a big girl without the car seat
  • We love your hair! We try to put bows in it, but they don't stay in very long. It can also be very messy...especially when we don't brush it after your bath :)

  • You love putting things in your mouth...your fingers, our fingers, your toys, your burp cloths...

  • You only like your paci when you are really sleepy
  • You have a beautiful smile!

We love you!

Avery's First Trip to Samford

We went to Birmingham Saturday and walked around Samford. It is such a beautiful campus and the weather was perfect! I love visiting and hope we can go back soon.

Cute outfit!

Big smile!

Catching Up

We've been very busy the past few weeks. I'll catch you up on what we've been doing.

On June 29th, Avery had her 4 month check up. The doctor and nurse were amazed at how much she had grown! She weighed 13 lbs. 5.5 oz and was 25 inches long. Since her last visit 2 months ago her weight had jumped from the 10th percentile to the 25th percentile, and her height went from 25th to 75th! She's growing so fast.

She's also doing a few new tricks. She likes to sit in her Bumbo seat now. We have the play tray that goes on it and we put her toys on the tray for her to play with. She's likes sitting up. She'll probably be doing it on her own soon.

One of her favorite new things to do is grab her feet. She just started doing that this week. I'm sure that pretty soon her feet will be going in her mouth just like everything else!

Our good friends Andrea and Matt had a precious baby boy last week. Knox was born on June 30th. We went to the hospital to visit him and his parents.

Avery and her new friend

Avery celebrated her first 4th of July last weekend. We were in Gadsden for the weekend so she got to spend a lot of time with friends and family.

Avery in her 4th of July outfit. The hat is supposed to be a sun hat, but it was too small (size 0-3)! Did I mention her head measurement was in the 90th percentile? :)
