Wait for it…

Living a simple sweet life, and learning to wait on the Lord

Here are a few of my favorite Avery pics from the past few weeks…she’s 2 months old as of Tuesday!  At her doctor appointment, we found out she weighs 7 lbs, 13 oz, so she’s gained exactly 2 pounds since she was born.  Since she had a hard time gaining weight in the beginning, that was very encouraging for this mommy!  There’s finally some “chub” on her cheeks.  🙂  She’s only in the 5th percentile, and the size of many “just born newborns” (my friend Cristy had a baby boy this week who weighed 8 lbs, 14 oz!) but we’re not complaining. 

Previously mentioned chubby cheeks


She loves to raise her left hand and wave…or praise the Lord…either one.


Such a sweet face


She also loves to watch her bouncy seat “friends”


First smiles!!




Our friend Dave took these at Jack’s birthday party




Oh how I love this girl.

Last week my little boy turned 5!!!   It feels like a big milestone.  I almost can’t believe it.


Jack chose to take his dad and his 2 friends David and Isaac “golfing” with him for his birthday.  David’s dad Dave came along and took some awesome pictures…thanks, Dave!


He’s so cute






 Love this guy.


 Such characters


 Jack: “This is the best kind of day…putt-putt golf with your friends, happy meals for lunch…” (insert sigh of contentment here)


My sweet boy


Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice… November 3, 2009

Today I made my first girly splurge purchase for Avery…and I’m sure it won’t be my last!  There’s a little secondhand kids store near our house, and they have a whole wall of flowers and bows that you can mix and match with stretchy headbands…too much fun!  I think the girl behind the counter got a kick out of how excited I was about the whole concept.  Avery is excited too…she can hardly contain herself, as you can see.  In other news, I think she might have really smiled at me this morning.  🙂
