We're in trouble!

This little girls isn't even really crawling yet and she gets around quickly. Just yesterday she made it all the way around our kitchen island (which is pretty big). Time to start baby proofing I guess.

Family Ties

It looks like some things just run in the family.

Good morning!

 We have the best baby in the world, for many reasons. What's the best reason? She's been sleeping 8+ hours during the night since she was 2 months old AND she wakes up like this:

Happy as can be and ready to start the day. This is a picture of her the first night she slept for 8 hours, taken May 18, just 2 days shy of 2 months. She's so proud of herself.

The bonus is that she usually has some pretty awesome bedhead in the morning too.

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

Exhibit C:

Let's be honest, though. Even if I try to do her hair it pretty much looks the same way. It's just funnier in the morning for some reason.

Summer of cousins!

Aven got to meet all of her cousins this summer. It was a blast!

 These three are part of the 2012 crew. Aven is just excited to have Capri around now so she'll have someone to play with for life. Is it child abuse to force cousins to be BFFs?

Aven's first big road trip was up to Oregon for Happy's retirement party. (Happy is James' mom which makes it the coolest grandma name ever.) We broke the super long trip in half by stopping in Sacramento to hang out with Trent and Elli. Check out Aven's stink face. Best picture ever.

Maybe I lied. This is a pretty awesome picture too. She went on her first plane trip to see Avery and baby Callie in Missouri. Callie is the last of the 2012 crew and she sure makes Aven look like Gigantor.

We love all of our cousins and can't wait until we can actually play together, as opposed to being forced to take pictures with them on the couch.

(Disclaimer: I am still not that great at making sure I take pictures of the important things so cousins not pictured but equally loved: Jolie, Leah, Cal, Kyla, Tyler, Jace, and Blake. See what I mean, I'm a slacker. In fact, I didn't even take the first picture either. It's something I'm working on.)

Having fun at 4 months

This sweet girl is 4 months old and we are loving every second of it. James and I pretty much adore her and think she's the most amazing thing in the world.

A few weeks ago she started laughing. That combined with being super tired made for one funny little girl. I was holding her and thought she was sleeping but when I looked down she was just looking up at me smiling.

Isn't she so cute?

Happy 2 Months

 Aven is 2 months old and growing big. Here she is so pretty for church.

And Diesel loves when Aven's having some tummy time. He always lays right beside her but usually chooses to have some back time since I'm willing to rub his tummy for him. Here are the two best friends just hanging out.

Bad Day

Aven is not having the best day. You would never know by this picture though.
