9 months old

I realize that I still have more to post to catch up on, but I wanted to make sure and get Avery's 9 month old photos up before too late. This time I actually was purposeful about getting pictures. So, what follows is a chronicle of Avery's day yesterday.
In the morning we watched Taylor and Kenzie who are the kids of a friend of mine. It is a whole different thing now that Avery can almost keep up with them.

In the afternoon, the sun came out (after being iced in this weekend, that's Kansas for you). We went outside and took "official" 9 month photos. The dress is an adorable gift from Nana.

This was Avery's first real experience with grass. After getting used to it some, she did fine. And I am happy to report, it did not even end up in her mouth.
Then it was off to normal activities. Her new thing is to pull up on the side of her her toy box, dig through it, and pull out all the toys. This shot was too adorable to pass up, although I have since realized that the "plumber-pant" problem probably reflects more on the abilities of the person who picked out her clothes and not on Avery's ability to keep them up. Oh well...

For dinner it was peas, carrots, cheerios, and a mess. The mess part is actually with us for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

So, Happy 9 Month Old Birthday to my precious girl. I can't believe we are already here!

Adorable pictures! I really need to see the cute model in person again. Noticed you are reading the Twilight books - took me a while to be convinced to start them but they were fun and addicting reads!
