Basket Case

Avery thought her laundry basket was the perfect place to curl up with her blanky and take a nap! What a funny girl!

Brown Eyed Girl

Everybody always comments on how big and brown Avery's eyes are. I love these pictures because they really show off those beautiful eyes! She did get something good from Steve ;) Oh and be sure to check out the new videos of Avery on here (It's under Family Videos).

Bubbles, Bubbles!

We had a beautiful day Saturday so went outside for some fun. Avery had lots of fun exploring, picking things off the ground, she rode on her 4-wheeler, and loved blowing bubbles! Also, yesterday we went to a local playground where she went on her first swing! She loved it, she couldn't stop laughing or smiling!

Well, I got another great deal on our news channel's classifieds. I found a Power Wheels 4-wheeler for $30 when originally the cheapest we could find was $75! It works great and Avery loves it! We let her ride around the house this morning and later today we'll take it for a spin in the backyard. I love finding toys for cheap!

Getting Better

Well, as you can see Avery is definitely getting better! Her nose is drying up and she just has a little bit of a lingering cough. She is back to her old self for the most part she's running around the house and getting into everything again. With the weather changing back and forth Steve and I keep getting a cold. So hopefully soon the weather will stay warm for more than a day so that we can get better too! Thanks again for the prayers!

Good News & Bad News

Well, where do I start? Good news Avery slept through the night since she first became sick! Yay, good for her and mommy! Bad news, Avery is still running a fever so we headed to the doctor again today. Good news, her Croup seems to slowly be getting better, not a ton, but she isn't quite has wheezy as a few days ago. So our doctor is thinking that she may not have RSV because usually the wheeziness will stay or get worse. So he's thinking she has parainfluenza which is pretty much a super severe cold. If her fever doesn't go away by Monday then we have to bring her back in again. We still have to watch her breathing. We're also keeping an eye on her appetite, because it has really taken a nose dive and a lot of times she doesn't want to drink anything so we're making sure she doesn't get dehydrated. I think that's all I've got, but hopefully this will be easier to beat if it ends up not being RSV! Thanks for the prayers!

RSV & Croup

So yesterday we headed to the doctor because Avery was VERY sick. We found out, she has RSV and Croup. We got a steroid to bring the swelling down in her throat from the Croup. The RSV could be okay or get worse and land her in the hospital. We have to watch her breathing to make sure it doesn't get too heavy or too fast. If the RSV affects her lungs then we will likely be at the hospital. Right now it's not affecting her lungs so all we can do is sit at home and pray that it gets better and not worse. Needless to say, she looks, sounds, and feels horrible. We have had some very sleepless nights around here. Poor kiddo, so please be in prayer that both her Croup and RSV would go away quickly. I miss my little girl on the run! Thank you!

New Ride

So I finally caved and got Heather a bigger car. We got a 2005 Ford Explorer. It ended up that my company decided to sell off it's fleet of vehicles that they provide for the managers. We bought this one because it belongs to my boss and I'm pretty sure he took good care of it. We took it to get washed last night at the local car wash (Avery did good, even through she almost freaked out when the high-pressure sprayers were going down the sides of the car) and we took these pictures for everyone to see.
