Dad the Grad

Doug's graduation ceremony was on Saturday so his parents came down to spend a few days with us... or should I say with AVERI. :) The ceremony was awesome (but LONG, like always). Averi was a good little thing like always and managed to sneak in a nap despite all the noise. She was a little freaked out by the "man with the wierd outfit and hat". You can tell by the way she is looking at him in the pic below :) It was so fun having Doug's parents here (even though I was sick the first two days!). Doug recommended a famous hot dog joint in Tempe that we went to one day, and we also went to Macayos which is always fun. Averi got to show off her swimming skills to Nammy as well. She really CAN swim (while in her floaty). She always wants to swim to the edge and climb out.

Peter Piper Pizza! , and then some

We took Avers on her first trip to Peter Piper Pizza Saturday night. Daddy won her a braclet and an army guy. We debated playing through the night to try and win her the Hannah Montana notebook for only 2,000 tickets... but decided against it! :)
Averi's new tricks:
-Nervous laugh
-Growing her second set of top teeth... the first one came through, the second one is on its way
Sophie got spayed on Friday too... :( She is recovering well though, dont worry!
We also just took a perfecly good clothes dryer from the street and replaced our squeeky one with it. Gotta love stuff from the curb.

Last 2 weeks...

No major events this week. We did go to the Cheesecake Factory though (which is as good as a theme park, in my mind). We sat outside and Averi was wired the whole time. She was the patio entertainment for the other guests.

This is Avers in the swim suit I wore when I was a baby. I guess Carter's has always made cute clothes!

This is a demonstration of how Averi plays with Sophie. When we throw a toy for Sophie, Averi gets all excited and crawls towards "safety". She has since then even learned how to throw the toys herself. Cuzzy Kenley may have taught her that!
