Becky's 28th Birthday!


Avery was in bed during my birthday- but here is a picture of her
Makell, Easton, and Raegan- Brandon's sisters kids






I had an area of skin cancer on my face I just had removed the day before, hence- the bandage




On February 25, I turned 28- yes 2 years away from 30! I can't believe that, I still feel like I'm only 23 or something! It was a good day. First thing in the morning Brandon and I woke up to Avery's squeals and screams, he told me happy birthday and gave me a card and a gift while we were still in bed. The card was so sweet and meaningful- then I opened the box and there was a pair of diamond earrings! They are so classic and pretty! In the evening, my in laws and our nieces and nephew came over to give me a present and Makell, our niece had made a cake for me. She did such a good job- oreos all over the place! She printed pictures of Avery and stuck them in the cake too. Very cute! It was fun to get cards in the mail too from my parents, friends, and Grandma Jean. Thanks everyone for a great day!

So Precious!
















I tried to take more pictures of Avery, it is very difficult with a highly active 6 month old!! All she wanted to do was touch the camera, roll around, sit up and wiggle, and try to grab anything and everything around her! It was cute. I got a book that a friend told me about that teaches you about all the different settings, how to take good pictures, etc. I read some information, and tried different settings and lighting options my camera had. This was the best I could do....for now....

She loves it!

I was eating an apple and Avery kept grabbing for it so I let her taste it. She loved it and wanted more and wouldn't let me eat it! Silly girl! We also started feeding her real baby food now! Its so fun, so far we have just done peaches and pears. She seemed to like it ok, but wasn't used to it. She had her 6 month check up on Monday and she weighs 18 pounds and is 26 inches long. She is very active and loves new things and experiences. Oh, and she loves to be tickled and to laugh!
