I LOVE this girl

Absolute favorite picture.
EVER! Although, this is a close second:When Averie gets really excited her eyes get huge and sometimes she goes cross eyed. It is so funny. I just can't get enough of her facial expressions.

Our little Averie has been quite the pleasant surprise in our house. She is a really good baby. She sleeps really good through the night (so far), she is content as can be, and she is finally starting to breast feed without too many tears shed from her or me. We had a little trouble getting the hang of it, but I think eventually we will have it down.This week has been very busy. It is amazing how fast time goes by when you are not waiting for your little one to arrive. I just wish I could freeze time at this point. I am loving every minute of being a mom, and I hate that every day passes and Averie is a day older. I just wish she could stay this stage forever. It is so fun to see her change every day though. It will be so fun to watch her grow up.

So far this week Averie has been to the doctor twice and had her newborn pictures done. (Unfortunately, they won't be available for a couple of weeks at least) She is doing pretty good. When we took her to the doctor yesterday she had lost 10 ounces. This is pretty normal, but the pediatrician was a little bit concerned and sent us to a lactation consultant. We had her weighed again today and she gained 4 ounces back. We were so excited. There is one member of our household who is not too thrilled about Averie.
Sergeant is a little depressed right now. It is the saddest thing. He hasn't been acting like himself lately. This picture is so funny because Sergeant LOVES balloons. He will jump around and play with them for hours. He would get the balloon as close to his mouth as possible and just lay down on the ground and sulk. He would hardly play with it. I think he is just having a hard time adjusting, but eventually I know he will love Averie as much as we do.

I just want to thank everyone for there sweet comments and congratulations. We are so lucky to have such great friends and family. I am so grateful for my mom who has gone above and beyond helping us. We have had dinner every day this week which is a record Check Spellingfor us since I hardly ever cook. I love you Mom!
