22 weeks


What a great weekend for Avery! Friday she went swimming with her friend Ella, Saturday she went to a baby shower for her soon-to-be friend Kaden and also to her friend Landon's 2nd birthday party. We finished our weekend Sunday with an all day swim at the Pirrellos! Daddy was gone all weekend so we had tons of mommy-daughter bonding time ~ I loved every second of it!

21 weeks!



10k!!



Haha ... I wish I was announcing that I was running a 10K but you know me too well to know that I would never/could never accomplish that! :) We have over 10,000 views now on our blog ... Since we hardly receive comments on the blog I just assumed we didn't have many readers, but apparently we were way off! I started this blog last August to announce that we were pregnant and to keep you all updated on the journey of pregnancy to labor & delivery & now our amazing baby girl and we are so happy that you are still checking in with us to hear new stories & see new photos. With our friends and family so spread out, this is the best way for us to keep everyone up to date! I promise that if you keep reading, I will continue posting & sharing & writing!

God Bless Avery!







It was such a great day yesterday - Miss Avery was baptized! Avery is truly blessed ~ we celebrated with a ceremony after 10:30am mass(Father Gary at OLA in Beloit is *fabulous*) followed by a lunch at our house. I have never entertained for 35 people, but it was all of our family so it was totally worth it. Avery did very well and talked in all of the right parts!

Party details here:

20 weeks!



happy 20 weeks to avery! although she is 20 WEEKS old, she will not be 5 MONTHS old until the 27th! after 4 1/2 hours of a pool party at our neighbors (in which the babe was in the water the whole time!), we had a great weekly photo shoot. i had to include an outtake of her new favorite pose -- foot in the mouth! too hard to photoshop words on to this photo, but it's a good one nonetheless! hope everyone had a great weekend!

next up ~ avery will be baptized this sunday the 24th!
