Well...guess what??? I have no lil' Avery here tonight. My parents are on vacation this week and we needed a sitter for Friday so they decided to take her to Vidalia for a few days. I'm going to pick her up Friday night. I was really nervous about it, not at all that they wouldn't take perfect care of her, but more that she might not be an angel the whole time. She had a fever and a little virus earlier in the week, the doctor said she was fine, but I'm a little worried about her being a good girl. I hate to think of them being up all night, or her not knowing where she is. Charlie thinks that she may start to miss us, but I've read that separation anxiety doesn't start for a couple more months. I don't know though because today when they got here Charlie left to get lunch and she pitched a fit until he got back and held her. She does the same thing to me sometimes though - she's such a daddy's girt! Well, I will keep you updated on how this goes. I'm sure she'll be fine, I may be the one who needs to chill out! :)

We did find out at the doctor that she weighs 13 lbs 9 oz! WOW! She is on the 10th percentile for weight and 15th percentile for height (25 3/4 in). Dr. Khanfar is very pleased with her progress! So, I guess the formula did its job for weight gain but you can imagine my tremendous guilt that just as I start to give very little breastmilk, she gets a virus! UGHHH!

Here are some pics from earlier this week...

Her skinny jeans and pink polo...too cute!

I have to ride in this thing...again???

We lost the shoes somewhere along the way : (

Stormie has NEVER spent one night away from me. She really has not been gone from me more than maybe 2 to 3 hours since I quit work which was when she was 5 months old and even when I worked the longest I was gone was 4 hours at a time then lunch and I got to see her. I can not imagine leaving her over night. But I have breast fed the whole entire time too!
And I have no secret or NO clue how to potty train ha ha I just noticed she was holding it all night and would go thru 3 to 4 diapers in the morning so I thought heck lets save diapers and try the potty and ta da it worked. She has slowed down some I believe because she went thru a real bad teething experience and I had to stop for a few days cause she had 103.5 fever and the potty was put on the backburner till she felt better. But I am not giving up because it has to happen one day so why stop now ha ha!!!

I love the new pictures of Avery such a cute outfit. The older they get the cuter the clothes get!!!!
Good luck on her staying away just try to relax and have some you and Charlie time!!!!
