"I get by, with a little help from my friends"

I am the luckiest girl in the world. Two of my old roomies came to visit a couple weeks ago, and we had a BLAST!!! I don't know what I'd do without them. Seriously. The second they got here, it felt like we were 18 again, only new and improved versions with hubbies and kids and such! We seriously just talked for hours and hours, and then some more...laughed like we were teenage girls, and bonded even stronger than before. I cannot tell you how much it means to me, that no matter how many miles seperate us, no matter what we're going through, we'll always be there for each other.

It was so fun for me to have them meet Avree! Well, I guess jana had already met her, but only for a sec. Avree loved them! Jana was so helpful and fun, and Kathryn totally cracked her up! Oh yes, the best part of them coming to visit? ELLERY RENEE HILL!!!!! I am obsessed. She was the cutest little girl I think I have ever seen...(okay, she ties with Ave).... She was so sweet and chill, and just look at those cheeks! Are you kidding me?!?

Kathryn and I took the babies to the pool one night while Jana was working on some homework, and this guy was lecturing us about how we needed to teach our babies how to swim. He was like, "ya, trust me, if you threw him(referring to Ave)in the pool, he could totally swim. Try it. You'll be amazed." Then Kathryn chimes in with something like, "Ya, SHE'S a cutie." Then the guy says, "Ya. trust me. HE/SHE will surprise you." Cool. So the next day, I made a little red headband to match her bathing suit.... in case the onepiece and ruffles and flowers aren't enough of a hint as to what gender my baby is! hahaha. I totally didn't care he thought she was a boy. It just cracked me up when we corrected him and then he called her a "he/she." Come on!

Mother's day at the Rawlins! Garrett got to call, and it was SO FUN to hear his voice. I love how close all the Rawlins boys are. It was really fun to see them all chat.
sidenote: Look at how cute Tori decorates her house. Would you ever believe she raised 4 boys in this beautiful home?!?

soakin up some sun

I LOVE THE SUMMER! I've been waiting so long for it to be warm enough to swim. The water in the pool is still pretty cold, but it is so hot out, it makes it bearable. Jeni and Nat and Stephen came over, and it was so much fun. Avree loves all her cousins! They totally entertain her, and I love it.

Daddy's girl!

Ahhhhh! EVERYONE keeps giving me crap for not updating lately. Sorry! I lost my dang computer cord, and our laptop doesn't read our memory card, so without the cord, I can't put my pics on the computer. But this will have to do for now!
This video is almost a month old, and it's crazy how much she's already chabged. She's talks a lot more, but still no "ma ma!" I know that babies usually always say, "da da" first, but Eric thinks it's because she likes him most. Ha ha! We all know who she could never live without!!!
