The Beginning ...


Isn't this the best smile ever! Evan started preschool today. He was so excited. His eyes were wide when I showed him his brand new backpack with soccer balls on it. His teacher is Mrs. Beaty and he will go Wednesdays and Fridays for 4 hours. When I picked him up this afternoon, there were about 12 three year olds with shaving cream up to their elbows. They were "painting" the table with it! What fun...

Happy Birthday Avery!

Avery Grace LeRoy is now one year old...



Where did we go?

I am sure all of you are wondering where we went... did I decide to boycott blogger? No, the answer is that I am a slacker. We have had a wonderful summer and I thought I'd share a few pictures to bring you up to speed.


My parents visited in June at the same time that my brother, Tim, and his family moved here from Hawaii. We were able to get family pictures taken, which was alot of fun.

Lots of outdoor fun... Evan loves the water, and Avery would prefer to watch. She's definitely a girl!

Summer Fun





Today was a beautiful day in Indianapolis... so we enjoyed a little summer fun. I took the kids and joined cousins Logan and Lexa, and friends Kinsen and Jaben at the sprinkler park. Evan absolutely loved it. He never stopped running, and was not scared a bit of the water. By then end, his lips were blue and he was shivering, but he was happy. I'm sure we'll be back there soon...

Bad bed head?


Mommy, please comb my hair!



EllaAnne Zigler came to visit last week... (Laura, her mommy, came too!). Avery and her love to play, or look at each other, which seems to be synonomous at this age. It's so much fun to have a friend that has a baby the same age as Avery. Laura and I grew up together, and it's neat to think our kids will too! EllaAnne is only 6 weeks older than Avery...

6 month pictures... a little late!



Here are Avery's 6 month pictures that we had taken. She was 7 months yesterday... she is sitting up on her own and can get up on her hands and knees now. I'm sure she will be crawling soon...

Pig Tails


Miss Avery is 6 months old today... Her hair is now long enough to put in pig tails! She likes to get her hair done, and sits real still in her Bumbo chair. Those chairs are the greatest inventions ever. The big debate right now is whether or not to cut bangs on Avery and trim up her hair. What do you think?

Visiting Daddy at work


Since Daddy works alot of nights and weekends right now in residency, we like to go visit him for dinner sometimes. Evan's favorite thing to do while we're there is to talk on the phone... to Elmo, or Nana, Papa, or whoever will listen.

Avery is 5 months old


Avery is now rolling over, and getting up on her hands. She turned 5 months old on Feb 6th. They grow up so fast!

Snow!

This was our first time having to shovel this winter, and Brendan had a great helper! Evan loves the snow, and didn't want to come in until Daddy was done.

How Many Evan's Do I See ?


Evan and I went to the Children's Museum here in Indianapolis last week. What a great place for a toddler to explore! That was the problem... Evan wanted to explore...on his own...without mommy! He is two and a half so I have to give him a break, but for some reason he likes to run away. And boy, is he quick. I definitely got my workout!

Goodbye, Grammy...

On Sunday, January 7th, my Grammy Horsman passed away... She was a very special lady, and a woman of God. There are many tears of sadness being shed as we say goodbye to her too soon. They are tears for us, not her. She is with Jesus...

Avery's 4 month weigh in...



Avery had her 4 month checkup with the doctor yesterday...she weighed in at 17.6 lbs! That is the 98th percentile...I don't think she has any problems eating. She is trying to challenge cousin Nathan's weight I believe. She is a growing little girl!

When I grow up I want to be Mr. Potato Head!


Evan got bored of just putting the pieces in the plastic potato head...thought he'd try something new! What a "special" little boy... :)
