Work Interupted


Avery found her da-da working in the office over the weekend. Cuteness ensues.

Video highlights


Avery is getting really good at this whole walking thing. 


Sometimes she walks until she gets distracted. 


Or walks until she can't walk anymore and falls down. 


Walk this Way


Sit and Spin

Pinterest amuses me again!

Oh dear Lord, please help me to remember to check Avery's homework when it comes time to do so. Kid's can be so creative. {I found this on PINTEREST}

Happy Wednesday!

Under Construction

We are having a little work done to our house today. Since we have moved in to our house almost 2 years ago, the second floor has squeaked, and it has gotten progressively worse. Especially in the nursery of all rooms.

Today they took everything out of every room, reinstalled the sub floor and reinstalled the carpet. I am supervising that everything gets put back in the correct place, cleaning in the process, like the baseboard behind furniture, dusting the back of our head board, etc. Fun stuff like that. Fall cleaning up stairs if you will.

Hopefully this will fix it, as this has been a long time coming, and hopefully the last of several visits to tear up our home.


From the first time they tried to fix it. {spoiler alert: It didn't work}



From Today:





Maybe I will post later to show everything back in it's correct spot, and all pretty and clean. Is there anything better than a nice clean house? It is Top 5 in my book all the way!

At first I was like...

I saw this today and laughed until I cried. And then a gurgle came out. I do that sometimes when something is really, really funny.

Happy Friday!

Standing Tall




The crib and pack n' play are on the lowest setting, and Avery is in the 85% of height for girls her age.

She is also now chewing on her crib rail, and feeding herself with a spoon, albeit it is very messy.

I am both excited and sad she is so big and doing more and more things on her own.

How cute is this?

Sweet Caroline...good times never seem so good!


Avery and I in our matching ISU gear on Friday before work/daycare. She had to represent at daycare since she is the only ISU fan.

We were in BIG GAME mode.

After the BEST GAME EVER, I got a little video of the celebration on the field.

Our weekend in photos {from my phone}

I forgot to upload the photos from my camera, so this is part of what we did this weekend...in phone photos.




We also got ready to go to the Iowa State football game. It was Avery's first. We put her in the moby wrap
like this {we didn't get any pictures of her in it at the game. this was at home as we tried out Avery facing forward} and we were pretty set.

The MOBY WRAP  is awesome. It is a long piece of fabric that you can wrap around your body and put your baby into. There is no stress on your back, and very comfortable. I thought it was kind of odd, until you have a baby that didn't want to be put down, and then it was the best invention ever. 


She hung out strapped to me for the first half of the game, and then Tony and I held her for the rest. She did great, she clapped and played, and had some snacks.





We also tried to contain Avery to certain parts of the house...and she wanted to see how it worked.



And then she discovered the dishwasher, and wanted to help.



How was everyone's long holiday weekend?
