It's been a long time since any real update on us. Sorry. Things get a little crazy with a mobile baby in the house. I spend my days chasing after Avery. I feel like I'm constantly saying "Careful Avery" or "that's a no no". Of course I usually get a scream or the ugly face in return. What's the ugly face you ask? This dear friends is the ugly face:

Add breathing in and out really fast and snorting noises and this is the ugly face.

I thought she would never crawl let alone walk and somehow she went from crawling to pulling up and walking along the furniture to standing on her own and finally walking in such a short time. I didn't have time to appreciate each milestone because she was on to the next one so quickly. Now she's walking/running everywhere and getting into everything.

She's going to be 11 months old tomorrow. ELEVEN MONTHS! I get a bit weepy just thinking about it. Surely it was just yesterday that she was the warm ball of sleeping newborn. Ok ok not yesterday, the day before.

She was an adorable little monkey for Halloween. She was such a good girl the entire evening. I was fairly impressed but she did great. My monkey's first Halloween:

Things have been going great with my new job. I really like it so far. I've learned a lot already. I will be out of orientation in 3 weeks and out on my own. Speaking of work I'm going to have to wrap this up. I have to work on some computer training before a class on Monday. Bleh.
