9 month stats

another great report from dr. martinez at avery's 9 month check-up!

28 3/4 inches tall - 87th percentile
18 lbs 3 oz - 35th percentile

since she is crawling as fast as a spider, and now walking around our furniture, she is burning so many calories and will not gain weight as quickly as she was before!

Avery had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family & friends! We hosted our first annual "Friendsgiving" breakfast with our neighbors the Kriegers & Carters - the kids & mommies watched the parade and the daddies threw around the football. Qe then went to my mom's for thanksgiving with the Cwynar clan. Avery did get to enjoy real turkey, mashed potatoes & cranberries. This year we are truly thankful to all of the wonderful people in our lives and our amazing baby girl!

Despite a last-minute costume change, Avery had a wonderful Halloween! She had a dress up Halloween music class with all of her friends at Kinder Music, and she went "trick or treating" (aka a chilly stroller ride) with her buddies! We also threw a trick or treat "party" - decking out our front yard and garage - passing out candy to the kiddos and spiked cider to the big kiddos. It was hard to count, but given the fact we went through 280 treat bags, 50 packs of crackers, 1.5 bags of reserve candy, 300 glow bracelets and other treats from my neighbor's pantry (we were desperate!) ... we are guessing we had at least 350 kids! Most people would find that annoying (and expensive!) but I loved every minute of it! I'm already looking forward to next Halloween when Avery can actually say "trick or treat" and get some goodies!
