H-E-double hockey stick

If the title of this post isnt a throwback to the 3rd grade i dont know what is...

If you don't remember my post from almost exactly a year ago that you can read here, then the title of this post probably makes no sense...but basically today's title is to give you a little glimpse into the temperature of our humble abode the past few weeks. Its been up in the high 90's almost everyday for the past month so needless to say our 'little-engine-that-could' of an air conditioning unit has been STRUGGLING. Avery has been going to bed in just her diaper, Stoney prefers to sleep on the cold tile floor than his bed, and ice cream has been a staple at our house.  However, i am not as miserable as i was last year because this year i am not 9 months pregnant and about to pop at any moment. All my prego friends out there who are about to pop or who have a few more months to can do it!!! :)

Thoughts of football, early mornings of ESPN and starbucks, chili, and fall weather are the only things getting us through this heat. Avery and 'Bobbo' have already taken there positions for our early Saturday fall mornings...

Happy Thursdays everyone!

Dreading This

For some reason i have been putting off and dreading writing Avery's 11 month post. Im not sure if it's because we have been ridiculously busy, or if i just really don't want to face the facts that she is almost a year old. However, if i wait any longer she is going to be a year old and this post will be for my future reference im gunna go ahead and do this...

The 11th month was so much fun. We took her first major road trip to St. Louis to visit Gavin and Margaret which was a blast! Avery LOVES Gav and Marg, and its always a blast when we go up there. We also had a wedding, Avery's dedication at church, and a trip to Birmingham in this 11th month.

In your Eleventh month you are...

  •  still walking along objects like furniture, Stoney, and my legs...and she also inherited a walker from cousin, Brooklyn that she has loved to use. 
  • You love walking with us holding your hands but get pretty sad when we let go. 
  • You will stand by yourself for a like a split second but then fall on your booty. 
  • You are still obsessed with stoney and for that matter any dog. You scream when you see the dog from baby einstein. 
  • Also Elmo makes you squeal like crazy.
  • You are talking like crazy...mostly dada, momma, and all done.
  • You love studying other people when we are out shopping
  • You do great in public cause you like to be with adults
  • when you play you HAVE to have a person with you. This has led to some of my madness but if you have someone to come up to and get a hug from while you play you are one happy little camper.
  • you are wearing size 4 diapers
  • you wear mainly 9-12 month clothes.
  • you weigh about 24 lbs.
  • you still take two naps a day which is heavenly :)
  • you are going to bed a little bit later now but sleep 8 pm to 8 am.
  • you eat really well and there isnt really anything you dont like
  • you are doing better with warm up to them a little bit better now.
  • your favorite animals are still 'Jelly' and your monkey lovie.
  • your favorite books are the 'Going to Bed Book' and 'The Monster at the end of this Book
I can not believe you are about to be a 1 year old. It's scarry and sad how fast the time with you is flying by. Everyone always said it would...but there are some days that i would LOVE to go back to when you were a newborn and relive those days because even though i was a crazy person i still love the newborn stage and hopefully knowing now what i didn't know then would help me not be so crazy.

Anyways, on to one year and your birthday party!!! Love you Avie boo!

11 Months?

This morning at Pets-Mart, the cashier was talking the normal baby babble to Avery and said "How old is she?" I said, "She was born August 9th last year so she is like a little over 10 months." Then the cashier said ,"Then isnt she 11 months?"

{Insert awkward moment and face here}

Ummm, wow i guess she is. If that doesnt give you a little insight into my crazy mind and how fast time flies for us i dont know what does.

Just wanted to let everyone know i do realise Avery is 11 months old today. It may have taken the Pets Mart lady to point that out to me but i am acknowledging it today but i am going to do my monthly post tomorrow with all her milestones. 

One more month and we survived our first year!!!

So as most of you know i have become OBSESSED with pinterest...probably to an unhealthy point/could get fired for looking at it too much at work, unhealthy. But alas, it's where i find these beauties...

ok well i didnt find this little beauty on there but she was inspired by the fashion on pinterest too so she decided to dress up...

Happy Thursday everyone!
