More visitors

This past weekend my sister, Amber, and my friend, Jenise, came up to visit (one of the perks of working for Southwest Airlines). We had a lot of fun passing Avery around and eating stuffed hamburgers. It was great to visit and catch up with them.

Avery is doing well. She is becoming more and more interactive, but I am still looking forward to those smiles and especially giggles to become more frequent. She is starting to search out eyes and look at people for longer amounts of time. Especially if they are making crazy faces or singing silly songs.

We are trying to figure out the balance of how much sleep to get during the day and still sleep well at night. She seems to fight bedtime, but once she gets there she can sleep almost 6 hours sometimes!

She is still (and probably always will be) a fantastically precious baby and is winning her mom and dad's hearts over more and more each day.

As far as Kevin and I, we are adjusting to this new role a bit better everyday. There are hard days and there are easier days, but we are at least not as new as we were 7 weeks ago!

Enjoy the pictures (especially Gamma and Nana)!

Well what a beautiful grandbaby! Love the shades! I am so glad Jenise and Amber came to spend time with you three! Love you much, Gamma and Gampa

6 hours a night is HUGE at that age! Hailey would sleep that well, but Wyatt hardly ever slept. Consider yourselves blessed. Love the photo with the sunglasses on her! What a cutie!

I love the post! Tonya you are a champion mom! I can see a little more of Kevin in precious Avery's facial expressions. Great Job and I am praying for more sleep
