One Month Already!
Our little Averie Girl is a month old today! I can't believe how fast it has gone by. Everyone told me that it would, but I never understood just how fast time would fly. Averie is growing like a weed and plumping out like a marshmallow. I am not sure how long she is exactly, but we weighed her yesterday and she tipped the scale at 8 lbs 13 ounces! She out grew her first pair of newborn jammies last night and I was pretty sad. In fact, most of her newborn stuff is getting pretty snug. Good thing we have lots of cute clothes in the next size up!
She has had a few milestones so far. We have transitioned her into the crib and so far it is going great. I was really scared at first to put her in the other room, but she has actually been sleeping better. Last night she went to bed at 8 woke up at 1:30 am to eat (and have a blow out for Daddy to change ha ha), and then she didn't wake up again until 6. I put her back to bed and she woke up at 9. What a good baby if you ask me! There were a few nights a couple of weeks ago that she was waking every 2-3 hours so this is heaven!
She is also starting to really be aware of everything and everyone around her. She recognizes voices and will turn when she hears someone she knows. She really is starting to smile more and coo. I can't wait for her to laugh or show more personality. It is so fun to watch her interact with people.
On Thursday, we are going to Denver to visit my friend Diana. Diana had her little boy, Andrew, 10 days after I had Averie. We are a little nervous, but it will be Averie's first airplane ride. I am going by myself, so wish me luck!
Well it has been an awesome month. Here's what you've been waiting for, more pictures of the "birthday" girl.Can you believe how long she looks? I think we have a future volleyball player on our hands.I seriously don't know what to do with this hair! It just sticks straight up, not to mention the "old man" hairline that she is sporting.Sergeant finally getting used to his "sister". They were so precious sleeping by each other on the couch.You'll never guess who she got her profile from...You wouldn't know it by looking at this picture, but Averie loves her baths now. There's that tongue that is ALWAYS sticking out!
Well I was going to post more pictures but I just found out that my sister, Kylee is in labor! We are leaving to Logan to go meet the little guy. Stay tuned for those pictures!
