A Pleasant Surprise

Today has been a little stressful. I slept late this morning and then my straightener (yes mom, the one I just got for Christmas, went out!) Of course, it had to be on the one day that I actually had an important meeting at work. But a ponytail it was! Our phone has also been acting crazy lately so I had to buy a new one. You had to hit on and off 3 times before you could answer a call - how annoying.

Avery has also been a little grouchy today. It could be the constipation- which is an ongoing problem now, or the teething - or maybe she is just having a bad day like her mommy! : )

Well, after my lousy day I came home to find a package for Avery Grace. It was some adorable new outfits from Gap and Gymboree...from Aunt Bonnie. Bonnie has been sending packages full of clothes since I first found out I was pregnant. She sent girl clothes before we knew it was a girl- but Bonnie and I knew all along! : ) Anyway, the package made my night! I have pics below. We are going to Vidalia this weekend and I was thinking about going to buy Avery something new to wear to my friends bridal shower - but there it was on my doorstep. Thanks for the wonderful surprise Bonnie!!! Dewana also gave me a pink pair of sunglasses - Avery has green ones but I had mentioned to her we like everything pink so she got me some - so sweet! Here are some pics and a video from yesterday.

What a big girl!

Here is a shirt that was mine
It say CASEY Gatlinburg '87
It was from a vacation when I was 3!
Thanks for saving those, mom!

New clothes from Bonnie...love this onesie!

OK...at the end of this video it looks like Avery falls off the couch - but I swear she didn't, I was right there! : )

Gotta love packages like that, uh? And that's how Natalie first started sitting. I would put her in the corner of the couch.

I have an outfit, something for Avery too. It's something Natalie wore one time (for photographs, of course).

I had it dry cleaned and I am planning to send it to your mom. I bought it at Canton Flea Market in Mississippi about a year before she wore it. It was a handmade boutique type outfit...well the top was handmade not the bottoms. I chose the size of pantaloom bottoms that I wanted. I got them in a 12 mos. But Natalie was two when she wore it. It would be precious for Avery next year.


I hope the link will work...if not you can copy and paste it. This is the outfit.

That is such cute video. Did you go buy a bumbo? She is such a pretty little girl. Those eyes are gorgeous! Hope everything gets better!

Your so sweet, Casey. Thanks for the comment on my blog. I am so glad that you asked me to photograph your wedding and that I have had the priviledge of knowing you are your mom.

Avery, has a great mom too!
