1st day of school

So our 1st baby went off to KINDERGARTEN today! Yesterday was her open house which I took her to. She wasn't so sure about things yesterday, in fact, she almost started to cry while we were there. One of the things we had to do while visiting yesterday was to sign our names on the sign-in board. While everyone else signed their names in big letters at the top of the sheet, Maddie wrote hers in teeny tiny letters way down at the bottom, away from all the others... totally uncharacteristic of her. I felt bad. Today though, she was ready! When she got home after a full day at school, she said "it was AWESOME"! Here are some pictures we took this morning before her big day!

3 months old!

It's hard to believe that Avery is 3 months old tomorrow. The summer is almost gone and school starts in less than 2 weeks! Avery is becoming quite a little baby rather than a newborn. She is very alert and attentive, especially to keep an eye on all the big kids! She is a smiley little thing and LOVES to be held by anyone. She loves her big sister and brothers most of the time and enjoys watching them play. She likes to be outside, her swing, and to just be part of everything. She recently went to her Aunt Kimberly's wedding and did remarkably well in the car on our trip to Washington DC! Here are a few pictures... until next month!
