Christmas Wish Come True

Avery's Christmas wish came true! Santa brought Avery her very own pony! Actually, this has been Avery's wish for some time now. She always says, "I wish I had my very own pony." When we ask her where we would put one, she always replies, "On the deck!" With the help of our Ms. Heather, (By help, we really mean Heather did all of the work and coordination. We just fit the bill.) Avery was finally able to have a very sweet, very broken, very gentle pony named Baby. She had no idea what the apple was for that Santa left her under the tree. After we opened all of the presents Christmas morning, we all went outside and surprised Avery with her pony. Of course, Avery cried when Baby had to be taken to the barn to stay, but will be visiting her often. I believe Baby will be able to be in some horse shows pretty soon!

All She Wants To Do Is Stand!

All Addison wants to do is stand. She still has not crawled. Eight months and as far as she has gotten is to stoop over from the sitting position and get on her tummy. Once she's there, she can scoot herself around, but doesn't want to use her knees. She also does not like spending a lot of time in this position. Avery crawled when she was 7 months, so once again, you can't compare children. Each one is different, even when their yours! Our beautiful, blue eyed, baby girl does love to stand in her crib, stand and hold onto the couch, cruise around in her stroller, be walked around a room with both hands holding onto someone else's, and she has even stood on her own for about 5 seconds. Where, oh where, did the "infant" time go?
