6 Weeks...The Story of Avery

Avery is six weeks old today. Can you believe it? The time has flown by. It seems like I just had her but then again I almost have forgotten what it feels like to be pregnant (thank GOD for that). Six weeks is really a milestone. It is when you have to go to the doctor and have that "infamous" 6 week check up. I don't have to go and have one since I've seen the doctor 3 or 4 times post c-section because of my healing issues. BTW...I am finally healed - last week sometime my incision completely closed. I am also happy to report I am not only back to my pre-pregnancy weight (I was at day 15) but I am 5 pounds less! Honestly I am too busy to eat most of the time. Life is crazy with three. Don't worry - I am handling it but I am still working on a normal schedule.

Avery is a great baby. She is pleasant. She is a pretty good sleeper and only wakes up once a night. For the most part she eats and goes back to sleep but a couple of times this week she ate and wanted to stay up. That wasn't fun but at least she was crying (unless I laid her down). For some reason she WILL NOT go to sleep for me. I can try for like 45 minutes and she is still up cooing away. So, Jake has been helping out and rocking her to sleep. It seems to be working out. I appreciate the teamwork.

If you read yesterday's blog, you know we have been very busy with Avery. She just goes with the flow. So, that is nice. The other kids have adjusted well to her. It is so sweet how they want to hold her and "play" with her. Elise has finally realized Avery is a real person and hasn't tried to poke her in the eye or anything lately.

Here are some recent pictures of Avery. Isn't she a little doll?

BTW...If you were wondering which baby was which from my earlier post...Mamaw was correct!
