Happy Birthday, Dad!

You can't make fun of Mom for being 30 anymore!

Look What I Can Do 3rd Edition

What do you call this?

Yep, two little teeth. We didn't even know they were there until last Sunday, when I felt the corner of one that had broken through. I know they're hard to see, but they're there!

Avery likes taking a bath.

Exhibit A
She doesn't even care when water gets in her eyes. She has a new thing where she tries to "grab" the stream of water from the faucet. She'll open and close her hand around it. That's what I was trying to capture on this video.

Exhibit B

6 Month Appointment

15 lbs 3 oz

25 inches

Doctor B. prescribed a nebulizer for Avery. She thinks her runny nose and coughing are seasonal. It looks somewhat like this with a mask piece that goes over her mouth and nose. The mask dispenses the medication in a mist.
Getting her to sit still with this over her face for any amount of time is akin to bathing a cat I would imagine....although I've never bathed a cat. Anyway, she's not too crazy about it. She likes it only slightly more than this
Hopefully this helps clear up her congestion!

6 Months

Here is what Avery K is up to at 6 months:

-Sits up

-Sleeps great at night (usually down by 8).

-Still not a great napper but makes up for it at night.

-Loves to be out and about (shopping, walking, etc).

-Laughs sometimes and smiles all the time

-Has tried avocado, banana, and sweet potato. She hasn't been overly enthusiastic about anything yet, but we will continue to experiment with new foods.

-Wants to grab anything within her reach.

-No teeth yet but loves to chew on everything.

-As of today she will be on formula with the exception of one bottle of breast milk per day until the freezer stash is gone.

And as usual, some outtakes:

6 Month Preview

Brandon gave me a few unedited samples yesterday. We should have all of them next week.

It looks like summertime in these, but it was November 1st and 75 degrees! She got to wear this cute outfit Erin got her when she was tiny.

First time sitting in the shopping cart

First Halloween

We went to visit Mimi, then the Thomas' Sr came over for dinner.

First time trying sweet potato (not bad...)

We had her 6 month pictures taken by Brandon today at Woodward Park. The weather was AMAZING. She enjoyed sitting in the leaves (and trying to eat them). He said he would have the pictures ready this week. I can't wait to see them!
