my favorite

Brandon took this picture of Avery and me the other day 
and I think it might be my favorite pic ever!
I sure do my love spending my days with my sweet girl.

proud addict

Hi I'm Sarah and I'm addicted to taking pictures of my daughter.
Ok so I don't really think this is a bad addiction.
I mean its way better than my new addiction, 
the DDC (dirty diet coke),
aka the Mormon devil in a glass.
Its amazing.
Anyway, this is an addiction I am definitely not trying to break.
I think, no i'm pretty darn sure that this is an addiction I will have forever.
But seriously can you blame me?

dance video

So, I went to my friend's baby shower today 
which meant that Brandon would be playing with Avery this morning. 
Whenever I leave the two of them alone together I always wonder what they do.
Well today I found out.

*side note- Avery loves music. Every time she hears a song, even in church, 
she starts to dance! I dont know where she gets her dance moves from 
because neither of us dance this way. 
But apparently when she's hears us say...
"wave your arms in the air and wave em like you just don't care"
she listens.

ps) sometimes when you leave your daughter home with your husband he
kinda forgets to do her hair, clean her face and change her out of her jammies...even when its noon.
but that's ok cause when the cats away the mice will play.

Bill Cosby

Dear Bill Cosby,
Apparently your Jello dessert is as delicious as you described.

A newly semi-walking sweet toothed 1 year old.

ps) pudding gets me moving too.

the 4th

This year we spent the 4th with all the Moores in Houston.
Oh man Brandon warned me that the Moores love all things 4th of July,
and boy was he right. 

Just imagine a garage filled with fireworks.
And then imagine more fireworks.
And then maybe a few more fireworks.
I guess everything is bigger in Texas

Now imagine countless hours in the pool.
The girls are relaxing and drinking diet cokes, the kids are playing, 
and the boys are coming up with every kind of swimming competition possible.
It was heaven

Oh and don't worry, Avery had no shortage of attention.
Between her "Bob bob", 
as she calls him
 her cousins, aunts, uncles, and great grandparents loving on her
we hardly saw her all week.

I honestly can't remember the last time I felt so relaxed.
It was definitely one of, if not the best 4th of July i've ever had.
I am literally counting down the days to next years celebration.

*Special Thanks to my father in-law who hosted the shin-dig.
He sure knows how to throw a party!

Now enjoy picture overload!

*This is Avery with her cousin Liam. They were inseparable. They swam together for hours and when they were apart Liam would say "Mom I have to go, Avery needs me." 
It was one of the sweetest things i've ever seen.

Hope everybody had a Happy 4th!!


A few weeks ago my mother and sister in-law came to visit and boy were we spoiled.
The entire week was filled with all of my favorite things...
shopping, eating lots of fun food, doing puzzles, playing in the pool, seeing some sites,
and of course...watching lots of Gilmore Girls.

Avery and I were so sad to see them go. 

ABC Party

For Avery's first birthday we threw a joint party with Avery's boyfriend Adam.
Avery keeps telling me that she and Adam are "just friends"
but she gets pretty giggly around him and always tries to hold his hand.
I'm pretty sure the next party we'll be throwing for them is their wedding!

The theme of the party was ABC.
The food was delicious, the decorations were adorable,
and celebrating the special day with our friends was so fun!

Happy Birthday Avery and Adam!
