Avi Grace got her first haircut this morning! She has had some longer hair in the front that never fell out when everything else did, and it had gotten really long. Drew has been asking to cut it for a while now, and as we were getting ready for church this morning, we finally took the plunge and trimmed the longer pieces. It actually looks so much better! I am pleased with the outcome. You can weigh in with your opinion after looking at the before and after pictures above!
Our little girl is growing up. Last week I was just thinking that she was never going to start trying to sit up. Every time I would try to help her sit up, it seemed as if she wasn't limber enough to do it! However, this weekend she has really started doing much better with it! We got her floor nanny out that Nana gave her for Christmas, and she did very well sitting up in it, as you can see from the other pictures above! She really tried to eat Baby Tad (Austin's favorite), and she liked playing with her new Mr. Beeps bear (purple bear) that Wan and Granddaddy gave her.
Well, as you can see we have been having lots of fun at our house lately! Avi Grace tried her first cereal 2 Saturdays ago. She didn't love it and she didn't hate it. She was kind of indifferent with it! She has since moved to oatmeal, which she is still trying to decide if she likes...the jury is still out on food in general, I think! Tonight I was "feeding" her some oatmeal, and she hit the spoon with her hand as I was trying to put it in her mouth. As you can see from the pictures, it ended up all over her face! She wasn't sure what to think about it, but she smiled when I got the camera out to take a picture of her!
She also enjoyed her first Valentine's day. She got to wear her adorable "Love Bug" shirt that her friend Emily Adkerson gave to her. Thanks, Emily, for the shirt. Avi Grace looked adorable in it! Too bad we didn't get a picture of the two of you in your shirts together!
I just couldn't resist taking pictures of her very wild hair one night after bath time! I always dry her hair with the towel, and I think I got a little carried away on this particular night! It was sticking straight up when I removed the towel...it was so funny looking that I had to take pictures!!
Avi Grace is doing great. She loves to grab her feet and put them in her mouth, especially if her feet are bare! That is one of my favorite things that babies do, and I love to see her grab them!
I want to give a shout out to Judy Coffey, the sweet, sweet lady that keeps Avi Grace on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Avi Grace loves her, and she is great with Avi Grace! So, I don't know if she reads our blog, but thanks to Mrs. Judy for being so sweet to my little girl!
Whew! Well, Avi Grace is doing just great. She is adjusting to her somewhat complex weekly routine very nicely! As you can see from the pictures, she has graduated to her bumbo seat and her exersaucer. She really likes both of them, but she gets mad sometimes when she is in her exersaucer because she can't get things in her mouth just as she wants to! She is definitely developing a mind of her own, and she lets us know when things aren't going her way! Don't get me wrong, she is still a sweetheart, but she is becoming a little more vocal about things these days!
As for me, my week has been quite eventful. Last Friday, I had some excruciating pain, and I went and had a CT scan done. It showed I had two 7 mm kidney stones on the right side. So, I had lithotripsy done on Wednesday to try to break up the stones. The procedure went well, but about an hour after the procedure, I started having VERY bad pain because the broken up stones were moving. I stayed at home in very bad pain all afternoon until we finally went to the emergency room Wednesday evening about 6. I got a lot of IV fluids and some pain medication, which helped me feel a lot better, thankfully. It was awful. Worse than any pain I have ever experienced (I've had 2 c-sections)! Anyway, I am still feeling better, but it has been a whirlwind of a week with all of this going on!
Drew's practice is going great. He is staying very busy and they are beginning to figure everything out. Things seem to be running smoothly now!
