Changes changes

Lots of little things going on around here. I'm getting so antsy about starting my new job! I cannot wait to be a pediatric nurse again! I hope so much that I like Bone Marrow Transplant. Other things going on for me that I prefer not to discuss on the interwebz thankyouverymuch. I'm just finishing up my last few weeks at my current job and preparing myself for what's next.

Avery is almost pulling herself to a standing position. She's soooo close. She rolls all over the place now. From a sitting position she is close to getting herself into a crawling position. I still think she's going to skip crawling and go right to walking though. I can't believe she's going to be 8 months old in a little over a week. How did this happen?

I dropped her off at my parents house yesterday morning before work like I've been doing for almost 5 months. It was the first time she cried when I left. Ok, ok she didn't all out cry but she fussed when I gave her to mom. It made me so sad. My baby didn't want mommy to go. I'm sure she quickly forgot and was off to do other fun things with grandma.

In other news: My bestie is coming to stay with me for awhile until her parents move to Arizona!!!! Slumber party! But, alas, we must remember that we are 24 now and have children. Bummer. I think she'll be staying about a month, maybe longer. I'm so freaking excited! I will be sad when she leaves me to go to Arizona with her parents :(

A long weekend!

Grandma R went back home Sunday morning. We had a very busy 4 days while she was here and did a lot of running around. Aves was a trooper even though she got really fussy sometimes. We went up to Northern Indiana for my cousin Anita's wedding. I got a couple cute pics of Avery there. Of course, none of the wedding.

Tell me she doesn't look so cute and innocent there! Of course she does, if you think different I'll dot your eye! Those cheeks! This was soon followed by a meltdown that was then followed by a brief nap in the moby.

I hijacked my mom's camera since she has a good one and took some pics of Aves. This is one of my favorites of the two of us:

These are some more favorites:

Another week over, another week closer to starting my new job! I'm getting really nervous! I have to schedule my physical and what not for sometime soon. I seem to have so many little things to do that I never seems to just do. I'm sure they wouldn't take me long at all. I would just rather play with Aves when I'm home or relax when she's napping. Someday. :)

Babbling and first words

A continuation of the update from 4th of July. I know, it's late. I have a 7 month old, sue me. (Yep, that's my cop out for everything. Get over it.)

Backstory: The week before 4th of July I put Aves to bed one night and apparently she wasn't tired. I heard her in there saying "mamamama". Of course I ran in and scooped her up and showered her with eleventy billion kisses!! (If someone heard something different, SHUT UP, I like living in denial thankyouverymuch.)

Anyway, Sunday Aves was playing with Jaden on the floor and I heard "dadadada" NOOOOO!!! It has quickly become her new favorite thing to say. Yes, I know she doesn't know what it means and I know it's not directed at anyone. I also know mamama isn't directed at me. But DANG IT!! UGH!! She has also said "babababa" a couple times too. She was sitting in the backseat today just happy as a clam "dadadadadada". ::le sigh:: Of course, that was between attitude problems and screeching like a howler monkey.

Grandma flew in from Florida today. We've been out and about running around most of the day. Aves did pretty good considering she only got one about 2 hour nap. My child the crazy long napper wasn't working with much of one today.

I gotta go find some Tums. I ate Skyline for dinner ::gag:: and now I have a distinct feeling of fullness and shame with a topping of heartburn.

Oh what a weekend.

Aves and I made the voyage northward to spend the 4th weekend in Northern Indiana. We got to spend lots of time with Megan and Jaden. We had a lot of fun. Avery went on her first boat ride. I was a sucky photographer this weekend and only got pics of her at dinner on Friday night. I know, bad mommy. We were both exhausted today and she went to bed early. I think I'm going to follow suit soon. We have a busy week ahead of us. Grandma R is flying in on Thursday so we can head back to Northern Indiana for Anita's wedding on Saturday. Lots of traveling for us!

My eyelids are heavy so pics and further updates are going to have to be later.
