I'm such a little kid about Christmas! I just think it's the best time of the year, and I've always been so excited to have kids to share it with. Here a few from my camera roll of our little fam getting ready for our first Christmas as a family of 3. I'm so thankful to get the opportunity to be a mommy and to celebrate the season of remembering that Jesus came as a baby who needed lots of love and care like my girl. Oh, how He loves us to come to earth like that!
The little miss had some seriously low-key costuming this year! We took her to the family festival at our church, but we were only there for about 45 minutes because it was right during naptime. I was afraid that might happen, so I only spent $2 from the Target $1 section for her costume. Doesn't matter--she's always the cutest thing I've ever seen!
Here's Princess Avery!
Halloween itself was on a Wednesday and Lance had to be at church, so we didn't really do any trick or treating. Instead, she got to be a wildcat!
Note that she is a wildcat wearing witch socks. Haha
This isn't Halloweeny, but she also had her first ponytail that week!
On Saturday, my family did the Walk to Cure Diabetes with/for my dad, who's been diabetic since before I was born. It was amazing to see so many people there for a cause so near and dear to our hearts.
Our team name was Bob's Beauties. :)
It was a great day. Sweet little miss did NOT want to be in her stroller, so I ended up walking the 3.1 miles with her in the Moby.
I loved the time with my family, Avery slept for 2/3 of the walk, it was a gorgeous day, and it was such a great cause!
We took Avery to her first Rangers game on Tuesday! She was just the cutest fan ever, and she did surprisingly well at the game. I was amazed because she does not care for loud noises. She was just her precious, wonderful self sporting her pink Rangers onesie!
Avery had her 6-month checkup yesterday, and overall it went really well. She is growing great, and the doctor even remarked that she seems very smart! The only thing I'm concerned about is that Avery tilts her head very slightly (I'd never really noticed it except in pictures, and I thought she was just being cute), so we have to take her to a physical therapist to make sure it's not torticollis. I'm a little nervous about all of that.
She is still wonderful and precious and such a blessing to my life!
And because she is too cute NOT to share a picture.... I just love her hair in the mornings. Makes me smile every day.
