"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!

Avree is way to cute to look like a boy.... but that really is funny. Guys aren't the best at trying to cover up their mistakes.

Look at all the cute swimsuits you've got for Ave!! You are too cute!!! I'm so jealous that Jana and Kathyrn got to come visit. Maybe Dan can get accepted into a med school in Texas!!! That'd be fetching sweet!!!! I'll start researching med schools near you!!
