Its a BOY

We had our 4d ultrasound done and sure enough we are having a little boy. Johnny and I couldn't be more excited cause now we have the final puzzle to our little family. He is very active and wouldn't sit still for even a second to let us get a good picture of him.

So after writing down at least a 100 name combos we have finally decided to stay with the name we first had thought of and name our lil boy after Johnny. His name will be Michael John and for short we will call him MJ since we call Avery AJ. So far this pregnancy has been rough but we are hanging on and getting the room ready for little Michaels arrival. We are just hoping he decides to hang out in my belly for a while longer since I have already started heavy contractions and we still have 17 weeks to go.

Avery is getting bigger and bigger each day and I think she at least gets a bruise a day since we have a little daredevil. We are amazed at how much she knows now and certain words she will copy when we say them. My favorite is when we are in the grocery store and she screams HI to a complete stranger...luckily they get a kick out of it because of her gummy smile!!

One Year Old!!!

So I apologize I have not been the best at this lately...due to that we have alot going on so let me catch you up! Aves has turned one and thats what this post is mostly about she is such a big girl now, and is even walking all over the place. It amazes us to watch her grow and see how much she learns day by day. We had a party for her and she loved all the attention and definetly the cake! She is getting so much personality and her favorite game to play is "Im gonna get you" she will go running and scream...its hilarious to watch!

We had a huge surprise happen to us lately and we found out that we are expecting again so we are excited for baby #2 to come aboard and be a part of this fun family. I cant wait for avery to have a sibling to play with and grow up with. We are due July 6th and are well into our pregnancy and things are seeming to go well.

Well here are some new pictures of avery and we will try to keep this updated now since we have so much changing so quickly

Six months already!








So lil aves is already six months old...seriously where does the time fly? I remember bringing her home and being scared Iwould break her because she was so small and fragile and now she wiggles around so much and has so much muscle and is strong as can be. She has started patting her leg to get the cat to come over to her and its the cutest thing. She adores ozzie and he adores her and lets her kick him in the face acting like its a massage...silly cat. I seriously think she she gets more fun each day and is always learning new stuff it amazes me!

My happy camper!










I keep telling Johnny I need to update our blog so here I go. Avery is getting more and more fun each day, her laugh is sooo divine and makes me giggle too. When she smiles she totally lights up the room and her eyes sparkle. She can now sit up on her own while holding onto something and she is loving her feet as well and when you put her on her back thats the first thing she grabs. She also has a huge love for cats, her and ozzie have become good friends and everytime she sees him she sticks out her hand so that he will come near her and she can pet him, its very cute! We took her on her first camping trip and she loved it! She loves nature and was a very good kid, I taught her how to roast her first marshmallow haha. I will attach a picture of her in her bed in the camper trailer. Here are some of her most recent pictures some of which we took on the fourth of July and also her first swimsuit pics....such a diva!

4 Months Old and still Teeny Tiny







So we had Avery's four month doctors appointment and she came in at 9 lbs 10 oz haha so little I was hoping we had at least hit the 10 lbs mark but that's okay my baby can stay small for that much longer! She came in at negative 25 percentile on the charts in weigth, and she was 23 inches in length so that puts her at the 10 percentile, and her head was in the 75th percentile (we have a very smart baby). The doctor also said that she has alot of muscle for a baby and was impressed with her thigh muscle and how well she stands. Shots were not fun this time mostly because she was happy and smilin at the nurse and then WHAM she started screaming and her cry has never sounded so sad.
Johnny got her to giggle the other day and it was the best sound on this entire earth I just wanted to hear it over and over again, who knew that a babies laugh was soooo divine! Avery has also started eating solids we started with carrots then went to sweet potatoes and then peas....I think she likes the peas the best even though I think they look nasty haha but I hope she will always love her vegetables.

She now has two new favorite toys which is in the pic above, her little stuffed duck and her taggy blanket, it's so cute how she gives them kisses and rubs in face in both of them! I love it!

Mothers Day

So I am super excited that it's my first mothers day coming up.... mothers day will always be special since that is the day Johnny proposed to me but its even more special now that I am a mother. I never thought I would be celebrating this day myself. Now I understand how special it is to be a mother and I also just wanted to say thanks to my mother and let her know that I love her lots and appreciate all she does for me....

Before I was a Mom
I had never been puked on
Pooped on
Spit on
Chewed on
Peed on
Or pinched by tiny fingers

Before I was a Mom
I had complete control of:
My thoughts
My body
And my mind
I slept all night

Before I was a Mom
I never held down a screaming child
So that doctors could do tests
Or give shots
I never looked into teary eyes and cried
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
When I couldn't stop the hurt
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep

Before I was a Mom
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put her down
I never knew something so small
Could affect my life so much
I never knew that I could love someone so much
I never knew I would love being a Mom

Before I was a Mom
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body
I didn't know how special it could feel to sooth a crying baby
I didn't know that bond between a Mother and her child
I didn't know that something so small
Could make me feel so important

Before I was a Mom
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes
to make sure all was okay
I had never known the warmth
The joy
The love
The heartache
The wonder
Or the satisfaction of being a Mom

I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much before I was a Mom.
