Avery is 6 Months Old!

My how time flies....

This sweet little girl is still just the happiest baby it!  She is now rolling all over the place, sitting up for a minute or two on her own before getting exicted and falling over :), and she is going to bed around 7:00 pm and waking up at 6:00 am! Yay!


Avery visited the cardiologist today, and we were so glad to hear one of her heart murmurs has completely closed! The other, larger murmer had not changed since the last visit which was to be expected.  Her cardiologist said there is a good possibility that it will close before she is 2 years old, but if not, it is likely we'll never have to do anything about it.  He said when she turns 3 he could go in with a catheter and plug it, but as of right now, the murmur is not causing any problems.  Luckily, her murmur is located in the best place possible and the stream of blood pumping through it is not hitting any walls of her heart nor doing any damage.  Her Dr. said she should have no side effects and can play sports or be as active as she'd like.  Thank God for such good news! We'll be seeing the cardiologist again in May (9 months) to check the status of the remaining murmur.  Thank you to all who have prayed/are praying for her.  We appreciate it more than you will ever know.

Waiting on the Dr. to give us the results of her echocardiogram.  The nurses spoiled her rotten and gave her this sweet teddy bear. 

The cardiology clinic weighed and measured Avery while we were there.  She is now a whopping 17 lbs. and 27 inches long! She has gained 4 lbs. and grown an inch since her 4 month check-up.  Wow!  I'm really quite thankful that her height is starting to slow down a bit.  She's already too tall to wear a lot of her clothes.  We're having to put her in 12 month clothes for the length, but they're huge in the waist so depending on the outfit, she's wearing anywhere from 9-12 month clothes!

Avery's First 4-Wheeler Ride

Daddy's been waiting to get Avery on the 4-wheeler, and she's finally big enough to go for a ride! 

She LOVED every minute of it!

The Cousins are Back for a Visit!

With a new baby in the family (and a GREAT reason to visit), Jan and the girls came to play!  The girls just love seeing and visiting with their cousins, and when this bunch gets together there are literally  kids everywhere, but we wouldn't have it any other way!
Mamaw and Papaw Oglesby with all their great-grandkids (minus Kerry's 2 kids who live too far away!). With the addition of 2 little boys in the family, what better reason to get everyone together for a group picture? It was just a tiny bit hectic, but we made it work! All I can say is those little boys better be tough to put up with all these girls! I have no doubt Max and Dean will be giving them all a run for their money in no time ;)

Ellie Kate, Presley, and Emma Grace

All of our pretty girls :)

Makenzie and Emerson

Papaw and Avery

A Little Blessing...

Wayne and I have a new nephew! Eddie Dean Scarbrough made his grand entrance into the world on August 28th.  We're in love all over again!
This little man didn't make it easy on his Mommy, but we finally got to meet him after 15 hours of labor, 1.5 hours of pushing, and a c-section...whew!

The girls think he's super special...he's the brother they've never had!

And they waited such a loooong time to meet him!

I just love this picture of Wayne and Brad.  There's nothing more special than seeing two brothers bond over babies :)  It's so fun to see Brad and Katie as parents finally, and we're excited to show Dean as much love and spoil him just as much as Brad and Katie have loved and spoiled our three girls!
Funny story:
Makenzie is such a little Mama...she just wants to hold and love on Dean all the time, but the first time the girls visited Brad and Katie at home after they came home from the hospital, Presley walked in the door, saw Brad holding Dean, and completely ignored him.  She headed straight to the kitchen to Katie, and even after Brad called her back in there to give him a hug, she turned her nose up at him and walked away without even speaking.  If you know Presley, you know she LOVES her Uncle Brad so we didn't know why she'd treat him like that until finally it dawned on me that she was jealous!  I asked her about it and sure enough she didn't like Brad holding Dean instead of her!  I took Dean from Brad, and the first thing Presley did was jump right into his lap and give him lots of loving.  Silly girl...
