Sweet Sunshine

Aaaahhh, the sun is shining after what has seemed like weeks! And it's been WEEKS since I've posted, guess life really is a big busier with two kids.

Let's see, Logan is doing well. Still enjoying being a big brother, and seems to love his sister more everyday :) We've had a few behavior blips along the way, as we sometimes struggle with making sure to spend enough one-on-one time with him. Especially in the evenings when one of us is making dinner and one of us is dealing with a colicky Avery, but most times he's content to play with his trains, and lately he's been helping make dinner too.

One new rule that I've instilled is absolutley no TV on while we're eating dinner, even if it is the news. That has helped, we talk about our days, Logan fills us in on school, its been great. Now if we can just get him to eat dinner we'll be good.

We've signed him up for T-ball for the summer, and he seems excited about that. One of his good buddies seems to be involved in everything imaginable, so I asked Logan if there was anything else he wanted to do, he said nope just baseball I don't want to get too worn out :) I guess they know best.

Avery is growing like a weed. We're at 10 weeks, and at her two month check-up she weighed 13 pounds 2 ounces and was 24 inches long. And I am already having to pack up clothes that don't fit. The doctor commented on how strong she seemed to be, her favorite thing is to 'stand' on your lap so she can see the world. Looks like we'll be chasing her around sooner than later.

Her colic is improving, her new trick now is that she doesn't like to take naps during the day without being held. My poor mother-in-law gets to cuddle with her on the couch while she naps, I'm so jealous.

Yes, I did return to work, boooo. I so did not want to come back, but the bills need to be paid. We're holding out hope that the economy turns back around and Richard can be doing the work he's supposed to be, so maybe I can stay home, someday.

We had Avery baptised on Valentine's Day. We chose that day as Richard wanted to do it as close to his dad's birthday as possible, since that's who Avery is named after. (his dad's name was Dale). It was a wonderful day, my dad and Joanna were even able to make the trip.

Here's a few pictures from the day:

She may have been a bit bored with the whole thing :)


  1. Thanks for the update, looks like she is doing fantastic.

  2. She is so beautiful, Jeni. Gram showed me the pix she has, and what a great looking family you have!
    Love, Auntie Fris

  3. Beautiful pictures Jeni! I'm praying the economy turns around too. *hugs* I can't wait to hear how Logan likes baseball. We've debated on Spring Soccer again this year, but O & Max have been sick so often this past school year we decided to wait until Summer to get them into something. :) I love the sparkly border on your blog btw!
