It's Been Awhile

I'm not so good at keeping up with this whole blog thing but I'm working on it. Here are some of her 6 months pictures and some of the things she has been doing lately. She is keeping me really busy. Her new thing now is waving and making this silly face. She cracks me up she is a really funny child and always smiling, laughing and clapping at herself. Now when she hears the bath water running she crawls in there and sits in the floor and looks at me like I'm ready for my bath. She loves her bouncy thing we put in the door way I think she could bounce in it for hours. I love it to because it keeps her in one place. It's the only thing I can put her in and she stays happy. The excersaucer she really doesn't care for anymore. If she not in her bouncy thing than she is all over the place getting into everything she can get her little hands on. We have started to baby proof the house starting with the outlets. Next will be the cabinets. I can't believe she will be 7 months on Sunday, it has gone by so fast!

Look What I Can Do!

Avery started crawling the day she turned 6 months and sitting up on her own without having to hold herself up. A few days later I went to get her up from her nap and she had pulled herself up. She was so cute, she was smiling and laughing like, look what I did Mom. It is crazy how she went from barley sitting up to crawling, sitting up, and pulling up in about a 1 week 1/2 time frame. She is a very busy girl. She is into everything she can get her hands on, but refuses to sit she wants to stand. Her new thing she learned to Patty-Cake and she claps all the time. I have been trying to teach her Patty-Cake but Sunday we were at my parents house and my Mom got her to do it.

Now our big thing we are working on is going to bed. I know and can tell she is so tired but she refuses to go to bed. She fights and fights it. Up until about 2 weeks ago she would go to bed between 7:30-8:00, now she wants to stay up or go to bed then wake up an hour or 2 later. So we will see what happens in the next few weeks, we are trying to be tough!

A Week Late!

Ready to go swimming
Wore out!

Watching the fireworks

Unfortunatley Josh had to work 4th of July weekend. Avery and I had a good time though. Friday night we went to the highlands with Mimi (my Mom), y cousins Matt, Whitney and their daughter Brynlee to watch the fireworks. Avery loved them she watched them in ah. It was way past her bedtime but she did not miss a thing. We hadn't even made it back to the care and she was already alseep.

Saturday we went over to my Aunt and Uncles house to swim, the whole Crimming's clan was there. She loves the water, I really haven't found anything that she doesn't like. Except lately sleep!!! That's a whole other blog! That evening Josh got home at 9:00 and we watched fireworks from our driveway. Hopefully next year he will be off work!
