18 Months

 

Our Avery Jane, aka Avy girl is 18 months old!  What a wonderfully fun and exhausting 18 months it has been.  In the last 6 months we’ve battled skin issues and ear infections which interrupted much sleep and I’m sure some language development but now that we’ve got that all under control we’re feeling much more rested and happy.  I bet we have a full time talker on our hands in a few months.  There’s plenty of babble and grunting already!

She’s always been happy by day but now that she feels better the silliness is really shining through.  Can we say Samuel Junior?

She runs with the typical toddler high step and it’s about the cutest thing you’ll ever see.  She also likes to push a chair over to the counter and help herself to whatever she finds.  We can thank the siblings for that little trick.  Nothing is safe from this climber.

She loves to play with and torture her siblings equally. And she has recently discovered the awesome people called Grandma and Grammy.  If either of them is around Mom means nothing and she’s not about to let them out of her sight for fear that they load up the big kids and leave her at home.

She has a wild uncontrollable mullet.  That hair knows I’m dying to put a bow in it and just flat out refuses to grow on the top.

She eats just about anything as long as there is plenty of it.  M&M’s are her favorite treat.

She makes the best faces you’ll ever see.  She can communicate almost anything with a furrow of her brow.  She’s famous for her looks around church.

We love our sweet girl to pieces and we love watching her grow!

 

 

 

 

And at the request of Molly…a running shot:

Easter 2015

 

We had a beautiful Saturday and a dreary Sunday for Easter weekend this year.  So we hunted eggs on Saturday and dressed up on Sunday.  As always the kids had fun and the adults enjoyed watching.

Uncle Mike got some bonding time with Baby Dean during the egg hunt.

Group pictures are like herding cats.

One shoe off and one shoe on…

Classic Avey face.

The boys!

Samuel designed and decorated the cake.  Molly photobombed the pic.

And then had to have one of her own.

 

We attempted the sunrise service for the first time this year.  We got rained on and Avery was a tired girl by the end of the day.  It might be a few years before we do it again.  We sure loved squeezing on Dean.  He’s the topic of many conversations around here so it’s always fun to see him. Of course we like Aunt Cori and Uncle Cason too, but let’s just face it, Dean is the favorite.  Haha! We did miss our Nashville cousins though and Samuel drew a map of how to get there for me this morning in case we might visit soon.  We hope all of friends far and wide had a fantastic weekend worshipping our Savior! 

He is Risen!

Spring!

 

If you watch Cauillou, then cue the song “It’s Spring, It’s Spring, we’re really glad it’s Spring!” song.   If you’ve never seen that delightful show then thank your lucky stars right now.  Ha!

Anyway, we love warm weather! We also love the ability to start school at 7:30 in order to make time to go out and explore.  Today we headed to Oxley Nature Center.  We will definitely be returning very soon.

These two see hiking a little differently than I do!

Growing up!

Little Sis doesn’t like being left out.

I could just eat her up.

Love her.

And the requested hair shot.  Her friends might want to see it she says.

6 Years

 

Last weekend we celebrated Samuel’s 6th birthday.  It’s hard to believe he is six!  We had fun on Friday with his buddies and all things transformers.  Then on Saturday the whole family joined us for another party.  Samuel’s opinion is that you can never have enough party time. 

IMG_5015

He iced his own cupcakes for the kid party and Molly did the sprinkles.  They did a pretty good job, I’d say!

We posed for some pics before the guests arrived.

The weather was beautiful so we took advantage and did most of our activities outside.  Run like a wild man with 6 of your best buddies?  There’s just nothing better than that.  Unless you add silly string, then it’s really fun.

Ready for the family party!

This is how Avery felt about Dean.  She sure loves her cousin.  Possibly a little too much.

Dean was hungry but didn’t want to miss any of the fun.

She can’t keep her hands off of him.

Wait, where’s Avery?

Thank goodness for a fast shutter.  That is one busy girl.

Seriously, how did we live without Pinterest?

Happy Birthday, Samuel!  We couldn’t be more proud of you.  You work hard in school, you love your sisters, you can’t get enough of your Daddy and grandparents, and your ideal day would be anything outside with a couple of boys to wrestle and race.  We love you!
