Here is Averie on the swings at the park on Monday! She figured out how to "fly" on her belly and loves it!

Baylor hamming it up under the tree.

And again, just being Mr. photogenic.

We were just being silly and taking pictures while we played. Here is Averie being serious.

Not a whole lot to report. We've been busy with the pool and the yard and getting thing (projects) completed. The house got a spring cleaning over the holiday weekend...and the yard is not too far behind! We just need to get the pool clear and sparkling and keep the weather at 80 degrees and we'll be all set! The kids are doing great...Averie is a little spunky these days, she just has an opinion and likes to have things be her idea (normal 2 year old behavior, I know!)! She loves her babies and is such a sweet little mama herself. She rocks all 7 babies to sleep before her nap and at bedtime! She even sometimes rocks her duck and carebear! She loves going outside and would spend all day everyday out there if we could! Baylor these days, is getting so big! He is happy most of the time and really likes to snuggle. He is sitting up almost 100% and loves doing it! He really loves to play the piano and make a lot of noise! Baylor is also enjoying his food and cereal and so far the only thing he doesn't like is green beans! No surprise there though! We have also just started using the mesh feeder with bananas in it. He liked but since my camera needs fixed (flash is busted) we haven't snapped a pic yet. I will get one soon! Well, more later-maybe not til next week. We are going away this weekend (visiting gma Judy and gpa Bill) and Daddy is on vacation next we'll have lots of fun pics for posting!!!

We had a chaotic, yet fun weekend! Here is Averie holding Toady (named by grandpa and Averie). He was a cute little toad that was hopping around the sandbox. She liked him and held him several times before I put him over by the garden to find his "family." Some of the things we did this weekend, cooked out, weeded, planted a couple plants, cleaned the inside of my car, got a washer and dryer (I will post a pic of the new laundry room later today), did laundry in the new washer and dryer (yea!), went to Target and out to dinner and had later bedtimes! It was a busy and fun weekend. Baylor has seemed kinda under the weather (constant spit-ups and sleepy and not nursing well) but was happy at times too. So, who knows. I 'll keep an eye on him today. Ok gotta go...I'll post more pics later, gotta go feed a baby or two!! Two more days of swimming too (Mon and Tues).

Here is Daddy adjusting Averie's float!

Here I am doing the same!

Daddy sending Averie to me.

Averie going to the float after swimming (hence the name swim-float-swim)!

Relaxing and warming up in the "little pool" after lessons!

Only one more day today (Friday) and she is done until refreshers. We are a little bummed b/c she ended up enjoying it so much. We might have to go back next week a day or two just for fun. We'll see. Anyways, it is so amazing to watch her with her skills. She is going to be quite the little fish in our pool this year! Which is the weather cooperates will be sooner than later! :o) More later! We will probably be so busy this weekend...hopefully I'll get to post Sunday evening!

Averie giving Baylor a toy... look closely at this pic and the next one.

Baylor almost taking the toy...but somehow I snapped the pic when the toy was in mid air. It looks funny just floating there.


Smile again!

Averie holding the boppy. She did not want to hold Baylor...but said she would hold the boppy! ;o) It worked out pretty well!

Here is Baylor on Friday! The official 7 month birthday! He is so funny about things. He loves textures-ie-my hair, the tissue paper on the Dr. office table, newspaper, his terry cloth changing table cover, his diaper, he also grabs his "boy" parts now, he grabs and touches everything! He is also a squirmer. He loves his comb (see pic) to chew on and any kind of lid. :o) Silly sweet boy!

He also got another trim to even out his bangs since the want to lay flat instead of go to the side.

Yes, that is a comb in my mouth!

Averie at my friend's house. We went up to her house an hour and a half away on Saturday. We went shopping and hung out at her house a little bit. Enough time for Averie to find her cat and play with him and to put rocks in her tulips. We had a great time!! Baylor was there too, I just didn't take a pic of him (it was daddy's weekend to work)!

She loved the flowers!

One more week of swimming! It has been a long four weeks. Well starts week four. Averie is doing great! She loves going now and doesn't cry one bit. She goes and "waits our turn." She is just getting down the sequence and keeping her head down but eyes up so she can swim through the water. Once swimming is done it'll be time to open our pool! I know Averie and Baylor will love that!

We also started a new project...the laundry room! We are getting a water and energy saving washer and dryer and pulling out the old cabinets and etc. Can't wait for it to be done! I don't have a washer or drying right now. It's a little hectic! We are going tonight to purchase them! :o)
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!
