Avery is home

We have had a lot of fun with her here at home. Every picture we take is even cuter than the last... to us. She is 5 days old now and we are starting to get into a routine with her. It feels like we are learning what to do with her, but of course we haven't had any really hard nights yet. We love her so much that we can't even stand it. Becky always says how if she doesn't hold her for an hour she starts to miss her. It is wonderful to be parents!!!

Our Baby is Here!!!

Avery Rebecca Luke was born on July 24, 2009 at 10:24 pm. She was 7 lbs 9 oz and 19 1/2 inches long. She has beautiful blue eyes, dark hair, long skinny legs, and rediculously long toes. We went into the hospital at 11:00 am and had an easy labor with a difficult delivery. We are so excited to have her here and we are learning a little more eveyday. The first night in the hospital she was fussing and we couldn't figure our what to do with her. It finally dawned on us to check the diaper. WOW!! We catch on slowly but surely. There are more things like that all the time. We love her so much and we are pretty sure we have the cutest baby ever!!!

We decided that Becky needed a hobby, so we bought a nice new camera. Even though it was for Becky, Brandon loves it just as much. I decided you all needed to see some of the pictures we have taken. We are still learning about it so hopefully you won't laugh at us too much.

Still working on the house

Here we are a year into our house and we have so much work left to do. The yard is coming along but we have a ton of weeds and even more grasshoppers. We have sprayed, mowed, and pulled and you can't even tell. We are also waiting patiently for baby avery to show up. Becky has had a few moments when we were sure the baby was coming, but alas, nothing came of it. We have everything ready and we just have to get her here now. Here are some pics of where our yard is and also where the baby is.

Az Trip

So a few weeks ago we went down to Phoenix, I had my baby shower there. It was so much fun to have all my friends and family there. I loved it! Then I had another one here in Utah, so I have so much stuff I'm definately ready for Avery to be here! We swam a lot, went to a Diamondbacks game, went out for dinners, etc. It was good to be home. Here in Utah, Brandon and I have just been finishing getting Avy's room finished and keeping up with yard work. We now almost have a full yard of grass and flowers that have grown and its looking pretty good! Ryan and Christi are out for the weekend for the 4th. Brandon and Ryan went on a hike yesterday through Indian Canyon up some trails, 9000 feet elevation. Terry, Christi, and I made cookies and watched a movie.
