update of the last month:
this last month has been a whirl-wind. cannot believe it is the middle of december already. there are so many things that i love about this time of year. i love the smell of my christmas tree, i love the snow on the grounds, i love wrapping gifts and using a little creativity to come up with budget friendly gifts, and i absolutely love getting to spend time with our families. this past weekend we went home for the webb christmas party. when we were at my parents house before the party avery found my mom's baby Jesus under her tree. she just kept kissing him and giving baby Jesus a bottle. we sat and watched her do this for almost ten minutes. it was pretty cute.
last week meag and i made a wedding cake for one of meags best friends (with a little help with some details from meags friend sammy and kell and spence, thanks). i love how this cake turned out. we still need a little help on the top real layer getting it all square and perfect looking but we are really getting the hang of everything else. here meag and i are in our 2 am glory, we got a late start on the cake, and here is the finished product.
obviously avery is 11 months old now, hence the reason i'm posting. she has been so fun this month. she is the loudest baby i know. sundays at church are sometimes a struggle with her cause she is so loud. i get a kick out of her everyday with the sounds she makes and the faces she pulls. she moo's like a cow everytime she see's one in our nativities (and any other animal that resembles a cow) and she oink's at her piggy bank. i'm also pretty sure she says ball now and loves me rolling it back and forth with her. she can blow kisses. she has said hi a few times too but its too inconsistent to consider it in her vocabulary yet. she still hasnt got a clue how to walk, except along furniture, and everytime we try to get her to stand her little legs just crumble beneath her. love this little girl and can not believe she will be a 1 year old in a few weeks.

at ten months avery can.... wave hi and bye, clap, give kisses, climb up and down the stairs (which is so wonderful), walks all along furniture, dances whenever she hears music, absolutely loves the theme song to The Office, has two teeth (finally), says dada, says mama only when she's mad and crying, isn't a fan of naptime, loves eating any finger foods, loves baby Einstein, and is a mama's girl.
we love her!
well, ave and i are headed to spend a few days with meag in her new house for a few days before thanksgiving. we are so super excited.

avery loved her grandpa this weekend. every time he held her she would just cuddle up with him. he probably put her to sleep at least 5 times that day. it was cute. ellie, the coaches daughter helped kept avery entertained during the volleyball games. she didnt quite understand that avery couldn't play back but still tried bouncing or rolling the volleyball to her.
this is syd's team. not a great picture but the only good one i got. and here's my car-seat loving girls. i was seriously so happy she did so well the whole trip!!
we ate at a floating restraunt while in coeur de lane. it was a little out of our leauge. i dont think they'd had a baby in there for a while cause they kept coming over and asking us if she wanted a cracker or juice. my favorite was when the hostess came and brought avery some crayons and paper and asked if she wanted to color... right, she's 10 months old, maybe she'd like to eat the crayons.

my little sister, mckell, took a few pictures of us the other day... okay like a few hundred pictures. but you know how it goes, usually only a handful of them turn out decent, especially with a little squirmy girl. here are a few that kell edited and played around with. i love how they turned out and i can't wait til she finishes editing a few more.
i cant get over avery's eyes in this picture. kell didnt even do anything to them, they really are that pretty.
this picture of avery could possible be my very favorite. she just looks so innocent and sweet.
