Miss Avery - 1 month old and Mr. Logan - 5 years old

Wow, how fast a month goes by! At her 1 month check-up last Friday, she weighed 11 pounds 6 ounces and was 22 1/4 inches long, so she is growing great. We have however gotten the evening grumpies otherwise known as colic :( Although it hasn't been horrible, just different since we didn't experience this with Logan. And even last night she was just fine, so hopefully it doesn't get any worse. It is definitely tummy troubles for her, arches her back, and belly gets hard when she cries, poor baby.

It's also hard to believe how fast 5 years went by as well. He's such an amazing boy, and makes me so proud how great of a big brother he is. He truly loves his little sister. Hopefully once she's crawling around and stealing his toys, he'll feel the same way.
Here's some new pictures of Miss Avery and some from Logan's birthday for you to enjoy.

His 'big boy' bike we got for him.

Birthday Party with his best buddy Ethan who is three days older.

Maggie is also one of her biggest fans :)

I think her big brother likes her just a bit too.

2 weeks: a perfect 10!

Okay, so I'm a bit biased. But she does actually weigh exactly 10 pounds as of her 2 week check-up yesterday. Miss Avery is doing very well. She's gaining the right amount of weight. Her ped is very impressed with how she already follows things with her eyes, and how much control she has of her head already. Do we have a little overachiever on our hands?

She's a great baby, a good eater and a good sleeper. She sleeps about 4 hour stretches at night, and I'm already noticing she's awake longer periods during the day.

And big brother Logan is doing great too. He loves his little sister so much. He went back to school on Monday, I think he was getting bored with her a little bit though. She's really not much fun to play with just yet. And I think he missed his friends a little bit. Avery and I took him to school today, and he was very excited to show off new little sister.

As I'm typing this we're finally getting some actual winter weather. It's been snowing most of the day, and most areas have been asked to limit travel. Even though it's only a few inches, not the Michigan snowstorms I've grown to miss. A few inches and Indiana goes into panic mode, it's really quite funny.
Here's some pictures to enjoy!
