Happy Birthday Avery!!

This is really late but i guess better late then never..Well its hard to believe that my little dolly turned two on March 20th..Happy Birthday also to CJ (my cousin's little boy) they share the same birthday.he also turned two! She had a pretty good birthday..We were hoping that she would smear her brithday cake all over her bc she really didnt at her first birthday bc she couldnt really eat cake and didnt know what to do with it she was on baby food..so anyways she didnt though..she got a little bit of frosting on her hands and freaked out..she has some issues with some stuff getting on her hands she doesnt like to touch alot of stuff which has somewhat to do with sensory issues like play dough she will chuck that stuff as fast as she touches it..but we tried to get her to eat the cake and frosting but she didnt like it either so i guess we were in a no win situation. She had fun opening presents though..but she didnt want to move on to the next present she just wanted to play with the toy and got mad if we tried to take the toy away and make her open another present. She did LOVE it when we sang Happy Birhtday to her so she got it sang to her many many times throughout the day.:))

We also celebrated our 9th Anniversary on the March 18..WOW!! 9 years already.(12 1/2 yrs that we have been together)..i guess that means one more year until we go to Hawaii:)) I have been telling Jared since we got married that on our 10th anniv we were going to Hawaii so we will see i guess he has been like yea ok..but know that it has been getting closer he's more like hesistant. i guess it kind of creeped up on him to fast..We were going to go out this past weekend for it but i guess we didnt make it so i am hoping that maybe next weekend we will get to..

Just a quick update on Avery...she has been doing really good with the tubes in her ear..no problems yet!!! Praise the Lord!! She is doing really good with her walking so far..she is still getting up and trying to walk so we are all excited about that..she just needs to keep practicing and she will get it done before no time. She got retested on her speech and was graded i guess at normal on two sections and a little bit below normal on the other sections. The speech therapist was really really surprised that she did that well so we bumped her therapy back to every other week..YEAH!!! Im not complaining!! As far as her physical thereapy we are bumping her back ot every other week on that to bc she is doing so good and feel that she would do fine with that..YEAH!!! im not complaining with that either..We still have Occupational therapy every week but that will probably stay the same bc they are working on writing and sensory issues and all the little fine motor hand issues..We have come such a long way but we are really excited to see what she accomplishes in her next year!! It is such a great feeling to see her accomplish something that she has been working so hard at..I love it!! It makes me slow down and appreciate all the little things that i sometimes took for granted with my other kids!!

Well wheew!! That kind of got lengthy but anyways here are some pictures from her birthday!! Sorry they are a little late!!


Avery's puppy cake that her daddy got her..mom was stuck in bed and it was all daddy!




He even had them write on the cake..Happy birthday Dolly:))



What do you want me to do with this thing??!!




Mmm..not really sure of the frosting.





She loved this box!!! Of all things..she made a slide out of it and keep going to the top of the box and scooting down saying "weeeee"



Brielle made the birthday girl a crown at school "Just for Dolly, Mom!!!"
