A baby filled weekend (21 week pictures!)

Meg and I (and our friend Amanda) had an impromptu dinner date on Friday night with our friend, (and Avery's Aunt), Trish.

We met at Whole Foods. There, Trish bought Avery a Kimochi! Kimochi's are toys to teach feelings. They are so cute, so it's hard to choose just one.

We settled on Huggtopus. "Huggtopus is all smiles and hugs. She is very affectionate and strong and sometimes gets carried away by her big friendly personality. Her favorite number is 8. Her favorite color is pink. She has a special fondness for bubblegum and plays the xylophone."

On Saturday, Meg's parents came up to install our new stainless steel microwave (our Christmas gift) and to drop off bins of Meg's niece's clothing. Meg's dad was joking around saying that we would never have to buy clothes again (unless we wanted to).

After sorting through the bins Saturday night, I think it's safe to say he was right!

We sorted the bins and tried to calculate when Avery would wear the was amusing! The clothes from 0-9 months went into Avery's closet while the 12-24 months went back into the big tupperware. We put the 9-12 months on top of the tupperware.

Of course, Meg wants them to be even more organized, but we'll save that project for another day! For now, here's how the closet is looking (ignore the screens...Meg took them out of the windows to hang Christmas swags)

We found this outfit while Christmas shopping for family and friends. We couldn't resist!

Last, but not least...Here are Meg's 21 week photos...Avery is the length of a carrot!

I made fun of Meg for holding the carrot like a knife, but at least you can see how big her belly is getting!

Oh, in other news, Avery has become very active! She was kicking last night at 10, this morning at 3:40, and all throughout the day. 

It used to be only around 7pm when Meg would say, "Come here," and grab my hand. Now it's all the time! We LOVE IT! 


  1. Yay for baby clothes! And kicking! Can you see her belly move when Avery kicks yet?

  2. lol, I was looking last night, but not yet! Won't be long!
