I've been so consumed with volleyball lately that I haven't had time to post recent pictures.
A few weeks ago, Uncle Jase (my brother) came to visit us. He hasn't seen Avery since Christmas, so they had a blast together. Avery was excited to pick him up at the airport and ask him about his flight on the airplane, but once he actually got here, she was pretty shy. By the evening, they were best buddies, and she of course was disappointed to see him go. She's running out of room on her little finger to wrap people around! We enjoyed the visit.
Avery's Nona (Kenny's mom) started a new thing with her since they have to carry on a long distance relationship. She and Big Daddy (Kenny's Dad) color pictures, take a picture of them coloring, then send it to Avery. Here, you'll see a picture of Avery returning the favor with a picture of her own!
In other news, I don't think I ever posted a picture of the dress I made Avery. It was easy, and out of a pillow case!
Brooke and Jerry were out of town for Labor Day, so we had a houseguest last weekend. His name is Hitch, and he and Avery love each other. For those of you who may know Hitch, he's pretty high strung. I even thought he might be on crack or something at the beginning, but finally he calmed down...when it was time for him to go home. He was fun to have around, making Avery's newest phrase, "Hitch is crazy!" I would have to agree, but they had more fun wrestling, running, playing fetch, sleeping, and watching tv together. Curtis (our poser dog) even got a little jealous, even though he never wants to play with Avery. To wrap it up, neither Hitch, or Avery were still long enough to get a good picture except this one. They must have needed a break, and it didn't last long!
