ONE MONTH AGO...

our lives were filled with lots of spare time, full nights of sleep, and plenty of alone time for just trae and i...

but i sure wouldn't trade the past thirty-plus days for anything.

Last Sunday Avery turned one month old. I cant believe how quickly time has gone by..seems like just yesterday we were bringing this little doll home from the hospital. Little Ave is just growing like a weed.. (everyone warned me that would happen.) She is so much fun and keeps me busy all day long. Ave has been sleeping pretty good at nights.. last night she only got up once.. (i've got my fingers crossed for tonight..but dont have my hopes up quite yet.) My sister keeps teasing avery about her increasing number of chins.. even so.. we still think she pretty darn cute.

As of lately some of her favorite things include.. taking naps with dad (which happens to be one of his favorite things as well), eating pretty much every two hours on the dot, taking baths, being cuddled and talked to, and of course sleeping. She gotten pretty good at letting her mom and dad know exactly when she is hungry, tired, or bored. Even though being a mom is sometimes challenging and overwhelming..i sure cant imagine life without this little gal.

here are a few pics of the little lady.

I hear Great Grandma Chick got to cuddle that little cutie. No fair, you were supposed to stay here in Provo, so I could cuddle her. She is beautiful!!! Love her painted nails - Reag is jealous. Love you, you and Kell need to make a spontaneous trip to the SLC airport on Wed.

Wow! She has goten so big and changed so much already! Who does she look like more, you or trae? She seems like a pretty good mix of both, but in one of the pictures I could really see a lot of trae in her face. Katie looks just like her dad. When you compare her baby pictures against mine and her dads, she looks nothing like me. However, I can see a little bit more of me in her as she gets older. It is so fun to watch them grow and change. She sure is cute!

Hi I hope you don't mind that I am leaving this post because I haven't officially met you yet but I am in your ward and thought I'd say hi. And I just wanted to say that your little girl is absolutely adorable.
