Avery... a picky eater?

Avery has been eating "real" food for almost 4 months now. She has never rejected anything we've given her to eat. Greg and I were not surprised at all. Don't forget who she has for parents. But just in the last week, Avery has become a little more opinionated about her food selections. I've even had to get creative when feeding her certain vegetables. For example, I may have mixed her broccoli into her blueberries. Hey, it worked! Here is video showing her deciding whether or not she is going to spit the peas back out at me, her mad sippy cup skills, and it also shows her crazy little laugh she does.

It was just Avery and me for the first part of the week. Greg went to sunny Las Vegas for work on Sunday and came home late Tuesday. I was a little worried, because at the end of last week Ave was not a big fan of napping, which makes for a not so fun baby. It went really well with just the two of us, but it's more fun when Greg is home too.

We kept busy on Tuesday with a play date with Miles. He isn't mobile yet, but it won't be long. He was watching Avery move along, and you could tell he was trying to figure out how she was doing it. This picture shows Avery in her side pose. She will be crawling along and then roll to her side to check out what might be going on-like a cat passing by.

On Friday, Greg and I went to the neighborhood wine party get together. We are very lucky that Alicia's parents don't mind baby sitting both Miles and Avery. If it wasn't for Mr. and Mrs. Gardiner, we wouldn't get to attend as many neighborhood festivities.

Here is a picture of Miles modeling the hat my mom sent him. I should have taken a picture of the two of them in their hats. I will work on at least getting Avery in her new hat.


The wine party was a good time. Greg, Chuck, Alicia and our other neighbor Brian were attempting the worm by the end of the night. Sorry I didn't have my video camera with me.

We drove to the party because it was suppose to be a descent snow storm. We didn't really believe we were really going to get too much snow...but by the time we left the party, we had to shovel the drive way just to get the car in the garage. We got so much snow over night, we couldn't get out of the neighborhood until the afternoon. There were cars stuck in the middle of our street. Just Mother Nature's way of reminding us that it is still Winter.

We didn't really do too much today, but it didn't have anything to do with the snow. You know when you see this...

Greg in his hoodie...he's sick. Around 3pm today he got a stomach bug. So Avery and I did our best to let him get better, and do our best to not catch his bug. It's almost 11pm now, and the hoodie has come off -so I think the worst is over.

I'm looking forward to next week. Monday is my first Organic Chem exam. I always hate the first test of the semester, so I'm looking forward to getting this one out of the way. Tuesday I am subbing in the neighborhood BUNCO night, Wednesday is the baby play date and then on Sunday we are meeting our friends Kris, Sara & Izzy.
