Averi ~ 6 weeks

Averi is really starting to become social {when she isn't so sleepy}. I love hearing the little baby sounds that she makes and seeing every smile on her face. They are priceless! She has been sleeping well during the night, waking up to eat at 3-5 hour incriments and falling back asleep on her own in her crib! She is still trying to figure out how to get herself to sleep during the daytime which has been our biggest struggle but she loves to sleep in her car seat which is the opposite of Arielle. We leave for vaction to Florida in 2 weeks. I don't know whether to cheer or to cry about it. So much planning has gone into it, I just hope that we all are able to enjoy ourselves.

Enjoy the video {even if it is sideways} & the lastest pictures!

The little things

Averi was all smiles this morning which couldn't have come at a better time considering we had a pretty long night. Yesterday she was so sleepy that she slept through most of the day so she wasn't very sleepy in the middle of the night. I suddenly came down with a fever and sore throat too which didn't help. I took her to see the pediatrician for her upset stomach and much to my surprise she weighed 9 pounds, 14 ounces! The doctor put her on a prescription medicine to reduce the pain from her tummy aches so we are crossing our fingers that it works. Every day I look forward to more little things to come...the smiles are just the beginning!

One Month

Averi turned one month old today! She is doing really well and seems to have less and less tummyaches as the days go by. She is still eating every 3 hours, sometines 4 during the day. I have gotten a few big smiles in the past couple of days which truly melt my heart! Now if only we could get her to enjoy sleeping in her crib as opposed to the vibrating bassinet that she is going to outgrow any day now. Everytime we put her in the crib for a nap, she wakes up 15 minutes later. And if I set her down in it as she is going to sleep she wakes right up with no chance of going back to sleep as opposed to the bassinet that I can gently rock her back to sleep.

One thing at a time I guess.

Zak pointed out that I actually took the one month picture when she turned four weeks but it's close enough!

Trick or Treat Girls

Arielle dressed up as Barbie Mariposa this year {a butterfly fairy}. She looked beautiful as always! Zak and I both got to go trick or treating with Arielle while Grandmom stayed home with Averi. We organized a neighborhood trick or treating group so Arielle got to go with three other 4 and 5 year old girls. She kept saying, "Come on girls!" to them the whole night. She is such the motherly type.

Thanks to the Cook family for Averi's Halloween outfit!
