Avery's 15 month stats

Our little lady bug is growing like a weed and this week it is a sick one. The poor thing got a nasty cold and fever after just two times in daycare, go figure. She wasn't feeling well last weekend and it got worse this week. She's got a temp and is just miserable. We were still able to go to her 15 month checkup today and she's right on track. She's 22 lbs (40%) 30.5 inches (61st%) and just PERFECT.

The doctor said we should probably start trying to potty train her this fall as she'll be ready much earlier than Brock was. What a dream to possibly have both my kids out of diaper for GOOD. We just got Brock potty trained a few months ago and that took forever.

Brock's first soccer practice was last week and he was so excited, although, I think Travis (head coach) might have been even more excited, LOL. It was so cute to watch all the kids and I was so proud of Travis who was able to capture the attention of 14 three year olds for a whole hour, quite impressive. The first game is next Saturday and we'll be posting some photos for sure. You can also check out the team's blog that Coach Hacker is

The spectator, she wanted so badly to go and practice with all the big kids.

First Day of School for Avery

So our little lady started school last Monday and here are a few pics from that momentous day. I thought I'd handle it way better than I did, but nonetheless I cried as I walked back to my car. I don't know if it was the fact that she is in school already or that I was worried she'd get scared. She had a little bit of a rough day, but did great. She is going with Brock on Mondays and Thursdays each week and of course big brother is keeping a watchful eye on her. He even told us that Avery is going to be scared, but it's ok, he'll watch her. Here are a few photos from that first day.
