We had a fun afternoon! We went to the mall...to buy yet another hat. Charlie has wayyy more hats than I have purses....ridiculous :)! Oh well, after writing my last post, I guess he deserves them. Anyway, our mall just got remodeled and they add a 2 story carousel (I forgot to take a pic of it) and the Build a Bear workshop opened. I love having Avery so little and I know everyone always says they wish they could 'shrink' there big kids back to lil precious babies, but when I see those things I just cannot wait until she is big enough to ride on the carousel and tell us which bear she wants and pick out the outfit! Ahhh....there is so much fun to be had in the next few years!!! We decided not to build a bear just yet, since she really wouldn't know we did it anyway, and she has so many already (see pics below that I took last night). I felt kinda silly in line with eighteen 3 yr olds ready to stuff my bear....lol! But it will be so much fun when she is a little older and can understand a little more. Aunt Lindsey and Cousin Bram are coming to see Avery this afternoon...I'm so excited, its been a while since we've been able to see them...I'll try to remember to take pics.
One more very exciting piece of news is that I got the pics back from Jami of Avery's newborn session. She was about 3 months in these pics and she was sooo tiny! I can't find a way to post the incredible slideshow online but you can view the pics through Jami's website. Just in case anyone doesn't know, Jami Ainsworth did the pics. She is an amazing photographer, we will be going back as soon as Avery can crawl to take some more! Let me know if you have any questions about contacting Jami for pics, or click her name in blue above to visit her blog. To see Avery's pics, just click this link:
