This little rascal...
the face of a boy who was trying really, really hard NOT to smile

 "A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2014"
In the last week, Avery got his very first haircut ever and has fully transitioned into 24 month/2T clothes. This combination has my baby boy looking all too grown up and his independent nature seems to have blossomed in the wake of it all. We have given in to the crazy cabin fever we all suffer from and have successfully turned our home into a jungle-gym that would rival any fast-food joint around, complete with a trampoline, tunnel and ball pit (some days the trampoline also doubles as the ball pit), a toddler swing mounted to the ceiling, and a 'car' (a playground steering wheel that Justin mounted to a stand) that Avery has free rein to customize as he sees fit (so far he's plastered it in doodles and Sesame Street stickers.)  

Spring can't come soon enough, although I know that along with spring comes baby boy #2 and these carefree days spent alone with my sweet Avery will be changed forever and that is so bittersweet. 
I'm soaking up every minute.

  2. Oh man, I wish we could come over and play in your jungle gym!! Great idea on the indoor swing too - that will come in handy with two kiddos in the winter!!! So excited for you and these last few weeks with an "only" child and all of the excitement that lies ahead!

    1. It would make my life complete if we could play together on a more frequent basis!! I'm SO excited for baby to be here but in the last few days, I've been realizing that that will mean being a little less 'present' for Avery than I have been, and that makes me sad, so until then I'm going to play and read and cuddle and tickle until my water breaks! :)
