My family flies in on New Year's Day, and I am SOOOOO EXCITED!! We are blessing Avree on Sunday, and so they are all coming. I know they're all sacrificing a lot to come, and it means so much to me. They have always been so supportive. I am the luckiest girl in the world. I love all of you, and seriously CANNOT WAIT to see you!!!! Let's hope the weather cooperates so your flight doesn't get cancelled or anything:)

Santa, Baby!

We had our ward Christmas party this past weekend, and it was so fun! Santa came, and as I watched all the sweet little older kids scream and kick and cry, because they were scared to sit on his lap, it made me so glad the Ave isn't old enough to have a clue about that kind of stuff! She loved it!

She was so happy and so cute, until I put her in her carseat! She started to get tired, and we needed to go somewhere, so I hurried to get her in her carseat before she fell asleep, so I wouldn't have to wake her up. Anyway, she got this cute little frownie face, and fussed a little bit, but eventually fell asleep. She was too tired to get too mad!


We tried another bath the other night. The first time we gave her one, she freaked out, so we've been showering with her. She loves the shower! But I decided to try another bath, and she really liked it. She especially loves getting all wrapped up in her towels. We put them in the dryer, so they're all nice and warm for her when she's ready to get out!

A Few Of My Favorite Things........

I know I haven't blogged in a while, so I thought I'd just post a few pictures of some things I've been loving lately!

Bows as big as Avree's head.
I used to laugh at people who put huge bows on their babies, but I ordered some headbands and bows online, not knowing how big the bows were, but I am LOVING them!

SUPER cute dresses to go with those huge bows
Eric was getting Ave ready for church, and was sick of the couple 0-3 month dresses we have for her, so he tried this 3-6month dress on her, and even though it was a liitle big, she looked adorable! He even asked for a matching bow! So sweet.

Cam got this for Christmas from Gma and Gpa Rawlins. I don't know who loves it more, Cam or Eric!

Cam was like, "Aw, that's my maks (mask) c-c-can I have that back please?

Cousins............Making gingerbread houses............. Making gingerbread houses with cousins.........
Cam was so cute. He asked nat to come sit on his lap, they are so cute!!!

Let's just zoom in on that lil' sweetie for a sec!

Okay, I don't love it when she cries, but I do love this purple sweat suit. It's so warm and snuggly.

She has been loving this swing that Anna let us borrow (thank you!) and I love that she loves it, because it lets me get stuff done.
This might be my favorite thing ever. I allows you to swaddle the baby even in their car seat. It keeps her warm and helps her sleep in her car seat when we're out and about. And she look super cute all wrapped up!
