May 2011 Update

I returned to work a couple of weeks ago and we've been getting used to a new routine. Week days are crazy and hectic, I miss my days at home with Avery but enjoy every minute of nights and weekends with my family. Avery got a cold the weekend before going back to work which led to an ear infection a week later. Antibiotics seem to have cleared the ear infection but she's still battling a lot of congestion. Her weight was up to 10 lbs 7.5 oz when she went to the doctor on Mother's Day.

Me and my two favorite girls, Mothers Day weekendCaroline's favorite thing to do lately is hold Avery and watch Caillou together on TV. She still loves being a big sissy.

Avery is getting bigger and stronger, she's started sitting in her bumbo seat for short periods of time. You can tell when her head gets too heavy after a while, it gets lower and lower. She also rolled from her back to her belly one day last week, but hasn't done it again so it may have been a fluke? And look at those little piggies, she's so sweet!She's also starting to enjoy bathtime a little more. Before it was kind of a race to get her clean before she got cold and started fussing, but now she likes to moves her arms and legs and splash in the water some.Grandma and Grandpa were able to visit yesterday for a few hours and stayed home with Avery so Travis, Caroline and I could go to church together as a family. Caroline usually goes into big church until the childrens' moment, after which she goes to the nursery. But yesterday she finally agreed to go to children's church rather than the nursery and did well, yay! She's growing up so much.
