Playing with TOYS!

Sweet girl!

Playing with Rece and his cars. They played very well!

A surprised Baylor!!!

Visiting Rece and Carmine was so much fun! The kids were all very good and had a lot of fun! They played and played! Averie could barely sleep in til 7am because the toys were calling her name (she slept in the play room)! But made it up this morning by sleeping in til almost 8:30am! She woke up at 7 and said "Happy Birthday to me" a couple times and fell back to sleep! It was pretty cute! So we had a big breakfast, thanks to daddy! Averie and I are playing and Baylor is sleeping and daddy is working on the floors! We will be staying in all day today because we got an inch or so of ice! They are also predicting 1-3 inches of snow tonight. This week will be a busy week. Swimming refreshers Monday and maybe Tuesday. Dentist for mama and daddy Tuesday. Eye Dr. Wednesday (mama). Everdry Thursday. Jett starts Friday!!! And hair cut next Monday (mama). Next week is Jett's first full week here and Averie's b-day is the 10th!!!! CRAZY busy weeks ahead!!!

Okay, so this is what happens when you have a squirmy little boy and you don't buckle him in to his bouncy seat for like 15 seconds! Don't worry, I do normally buckle him in!

He was soooo happy in his bouncy seat!

Averie blowing MiMi a kiss thanking her for this beautiful dress!!!!

A Valentine's Day party and art project!

Stamping hearts made out of a potato!

More hearts and painting!

Averie is feeling a lot better today. She hasn't gotten sick since Saturday and has been starting to eat a little more at meals. She is still being picky about what she does eat, but that's okay. She is probably not quite ready to dive back in to her usual appetite! We painted today and will hopefully be well enough to go outside Wednesday or Thursday. We are supposed to get 4-8 inches by Wednesday! I really need boots for her though...I may have to go looking again one of these days!

"I didn't do it!"

"Trying not to feel miserable."


Shy boy.

Well, here are the few pics I managed to take today. Averie is 23 months today. I just thought of that! We lounged around today. Both kids took great naps. Averie-3.5 hours. Baylor-2 were more than 2 hours each and one was about 45 minutes. Which would explain his crankiness this evening after dinner. Averie hasn't gotten sick since this morning. She had an egg and applesauce for lunch and star soup and a little milk for dinner. We'll see how her appetite is in the morning. I hope she is on the way to recovery. Tomorrow, we'll be staying in, no church, no nothing. Daddy only works til 5pm. So at least that is a positive. And I think Grandma and Grandpa are coming over! So, we'll at least have some company tomorrow!

Averie Jean on top! @ 4 months!

Baylor Josef on bottom! 4 months!
I just love the big eyes and chubby fists!

Averie after her 4 month shots!

Baylor after his 4 month shots!
* * * * *
All in all the appointment went well. He was napping when we got there and woke up to flirt and smile during the check-up! He was only 4 oz. bigger than Averie and 3/4 of an inch longer than her at 4 months! So he is mostly just longer. I think that is why his legs don't look at chubby! But he is growing good she said. She also said we could start cereal whenever we want to. We will probably not even start it until after the next appointment which is at 6 months. Unless of course he needs the extra food. But he is sleeping through the night 75% of the time and taking 3 naps I think we are just fine for now! I'd rather add an extra nursing time than start cereal. We need to get a high chair and all the stuff that goes with cereal feeding. I am definitely not ready for the extra preparation just yet! :o) As for everything else, he screamed after the shots were pretty much over, has 3 bandaids and nursed and slept a lot yesterday. He also woke up at 3am (I let him settle himself back down) and 4:30am (I got him and fed him in my bed) and put him back in his crib at 6:30am (he slept until about 7:30am-which is his awake time in the morning)! So, he was just a little extra fussy. Today, so far so good. We did the pictures and he just went down for a nap a little bit ago. I expect a fairly normal day today. He also has officially moved into his room at night. He has slept 3 nights in there so far. Twice though I have gotten up in the morning and he is all the way against the bumper trying to eat it. So, I am torn about removing it. I obviously don't want him to have trouble breathing if he gets himself over there in the middle of the night, but I don't want him bonking his head either? Anyone have any suggestions about that one? I don't remember when I took it out for Averie...I know it wasn't this early because she was rolling to her stomach by this age to sleep (all on her own).

While on the subject of Averie...she has just started medicine for her "poop" problems. Some of you already know that she has been having a hard time going #2...well we've tried more veggies, less dairy, prunes, more fiber and well nothing has helped. So I called the doc and they put her on a powdered stool softener. So, we are waiting for her #2's to be easier to pass and for her to not be afraid to push her poops out! So, we will see how this stuff works. We have enough to last like a year. Cross your fingers!

So, that's all that's going on for now...we are going to have a calm weekend in. Maybe I will get out and get some b-day shopping done for Averie (that is if grandma has nothing to do Saturday afternoon...he he)! Daddy works, and with the cold weather still around, it'll be church and that's about it for going anywhere! I wish we'd get some snow and some 30 degree weather so Averie and I could build a snowman! But I guess we should have snow boots for Averie before we do that...anyone know where I can buy some? All I can find are bathing suits and sun dresses and flip flops. No boots anywhere...I did find a really cute pair of ballet flats for Averie yesterday. They were on sale for $12.99 and I had a $10 off coupon! Talk about a deal! :o) Well, that sums up our last few days of excitement! We'll try to post this weekend. Maybe we'll do a photo shoot. We haven't done one of those with both kids in a while. We'll see what we can do!

They both had their ducks on the other night for bed so they sat in Averie's chair for a picture!

We've had a pretty calm weekend...Target on Saturday, for diapers and lunch. Then as we're heading outside from Target, we realize that the snow is blowing sideways. I had to turn around and head back inside because Baylor's blanket was blowing (I couldn't hold it, his seat and push the cart). So good thing I gave Matt one of Baylor's blankets for over Averie's head because they braved the crazy wind (and cold and snow) and brought the car around! That was our adventure for we went to church and lunch up town and now we're home for the night! We are having football food for dinner- meatballs, lil' weiners, subs, veggie's with dip, chips with salsa and brownies if I get around to making them. Not that I'll splurge...ok, maybe a little! Well, I will try to get a few pics tonight during the Superbowl of the kids, since it is Baylor's 4 month b-day and it's been a couple of days since I took pictures!

We also can't go outside to play because all the snow blew away and it is ridiculously cold and the field across the street brought dirt everywhere in place of the snow. It is absolutely gross in our yard. But we did get a good deal on a snowsuit for Once Upon A Child, we got a L.L. Bean, 3T, pink snowsuit with a polar bear on it for $12. It looks like it was washed maybe 2 times. Very good find!!
Served Averie fresh milk for 1 year, 2 months and 5 days! Served Baylor fresh milk for 1 year, 6 months, 1 week and 5 days! Served Colbie fresh milk for 1 year, 3 months exactly!
