7 days and counting....

The countdown has begun....our "Little Love" will be one in 7 days!!! Can't believe it!

Avery will be flying for the third time tomorrow. The Stubblefields are headed to Ohio to visit my family. We're looking forward to the trip and hope Avery is as good on the plane this time as the last two times. She's lots more active now, so it should be interesting.

I'll have some fun pics and an update for you when we get back.

Have a great weekend!

11 month pics

Here are some fun 11 month pics!! Avery is really so big! It's crazy!! She has 6 teeth, is still cruising and standing on her own for a few seconds, and is really talking up a storm. Her favorite word is still "hi". She is a source of entertainment for many when we're shopping. She also says "baby", something that sounds very much like "Jack" when she sees him, and ocassionally "dog". She also says several words in a foreign tongue that I can't quite decypher... the girl loves to talk! :) It's amazing to hear her little voice and actual words coming out of her mouth. Such a miracle! I look forward to long conversations with her in the years to come.

Operation "1st Birthday" is in full swing. I'm planning and preparing in my "spare time". :) We're having a back yard bash on October 4th with cupcakes, lemonade and ice cream sundaes. We're trying to keep it simple... as simple as an Andi event can be. Please pray that it doesn't rain on our special day. We absolutely don't have room for this kind of party inside, so we're taking a big chance on the outside venue. I checked with the Farmer's Almanac (not something I regularly utilize, but desperate times... ) and they say it won't rain that week. Let's hope they're right.

Hope everyone's having a happy week!

Restoration Song

11 months tomorrow

These are the last of the 10 month pics. My little love will be 11 months old tomorrow. Although I'm in denial about her 1st birthday approaching, I have started to plan her party.

So, let me tell you about this sweet girl... she has such a personality!! Over the last few weeks she's started saying "hi" and waving...and the funny thing is, is that she knows exactly what she's doing. She does it at home to us and the dogs, but also at the grocery store, Wal-Mart, Target, the mall, restaurants... wherever she sees people. She says hi and if she doesn't get a hi back, she says it louder until whoever she's talking to responds! People can't get over it. They think it's the cutest thing they've ever seen... this tiny thing saying hi and waving to them like she's a big girl. She absolutely loves people. I can't imagine what it will be like when she can actually carry on conversations. (and her daddy thinks I'm a talker... he's in for it!) :)
