June 2014

In June, Avery turned 17 months old.  We spent a lot of time outside enjoying the warm weather.

Almost every weekend, we take a family walk out to check the mail, pick wildflowers and see the cows.

Getting frustrated because she can't get the wildflower...

Laundry is also super fun.  Don't you just love the dryer?!

And hanging in the laundry basket is pretty cool too!

It was a rainy day, so we made some playdoh.  I expected Avery to love it, but at first she wasn't much of a fan.  I think it was a texture thing.  She has since gotten over it and really enjoys playing with it!

Adam was out of town for Avery's Father's Day party at school, so I got to be a stand in for daddy.  It was a beautiful day for an outside party with this sweet little girl!

I really enjoyed getting to see her play outside with all her friends.

There's a little area in their playground between the bushes and the fence that the kids love.

Awwww... cuddling with Wally and Bubbles on the beanbag.  I kinda think she was actually sitting on Bubbles.  Those cats are really good sports ;)

Hanging at the lake house.  Oh Mommy...I'm so sick of you taking pictures of me!

This just warms my heart...reading with her Daddy.

We love the sandbox and screened in porch at Cici and Pops lake house!

Thanks Grandma Johnson for my chicken!

These kitties are very well loved!

Pee pie in the potty!

We bought Avery a potty this weekend.   I know we aren't ready to potty train yet, but I wanted to have one in her bathroom so we could start talking about it.

Just for fun, we decided to sit her on it right before her bath.  I told her that this is where she will make a "pee pie" (who knows why we call her pee diapers that:)).

She sat there for a minute,  wiggled around then got up.  And guess what was in the potty!!  She immediately started sticking her hand in it so we didn't have a chance to take a picture,  but we definitely cheered.   I'm sure it was just a fluke, but still exciting!

Ladies and Gentlemen, Elvis is in the Building!

Avery's hair was a little crazy this morning and I think it looks a little like Elvis! 

We've had some rough sleeps here lately.   Poor baby is getting 2 molars at once (that puts us at 9 teeth total)!  She's ended up in the bed with Adam and I several nights.  

We both admit that we don't mind the cuddles, but I do mind when she pushes me off the bed, I wake up with a bum in my face, or she insists on sleeping with her face on top of my face :)

Adam is in Michigan for the next 2 nights..wish us luck!

I updated the video,  so it should work now.

Bed Buddy

This little girl ended up in bed with me at 2 a.m. I didn't really mind because Adam is in Canada and I enjoyed the cuddles and company. :-)
