What we’ve been up to.

Unpacking.  Lots of unpacking.

First, I’d like to have a moment of silence.  Our big freezer decided to die on us, right before the move.  All of the milk I had pumped for Avery had to get dumped.  I cried.  There was about 3 gallons of milk in there.  Now we have none.  I haven’t used any of it and she barely takes a bottle anyway, but I like having it in there.  And it’s gone.  All gone.

Moving on.

Avery is trying her hardest to start crawling!

Silly face.

Up off the floor.

She’s started voicing her opinions a lot more.  Every time Garrett touches her she starts screaming!  I’m not sure if it’s because he’s always squeezing her around the neck, or laying on top of her but I think she’s sick of it.  They are so silly together.  He just wants to love her all the time!   They have a new game too, she’ll be in her walker in the kitchen and he likes pushing her around.  They both love it.

Scared face.

Checking out the construction trucks in the road.

Garrett has started talking a lot more!   He’ll say Garrett and Avery now.  Though it sounds more like Gar-ga and Aya-ya.  It’s really cute.  He likes making sounds and motions for the lawn mower and rota-tiller too.

I wanted to add this.  Mike’s mom made Avery a dress and hat.  It’s so cute.


Happy Birthday, Grandpa Berciunas!

This is a few days late, since we didn’t have  internet until Thursday.

Happy Birthday Grandpa Berciunas!  We hope you had a wonderful day!

House Progress

We’re all moved in!

A HUGE thank you to all the grandmas for helping!   We can’t thank them enough!  Without all their help, we probably wouldn’t have been able to move in last weekend.  We’re adjusting well.  All the important stuff is unpacked, we’re just trying to sort out all the other stuff and find homes for everything.  The kids are doing pretty well.  They haven’t been sleeping great, unfortunately, but hopefully it will be getting better soon.

Here are some pictures of the stuff we changed so far.

The kitchen turned out so great!  I love the color!


Avery’s room.  It looks a little green in this picture but it’s actually a tan/cream color.

Garrett’s room.  His room looks a little bare but he has more stuff in it.  His room is the same color as Avery’s.

We still have things we want to do.  I’d love to get rid of all the carpet, but it’s probably going to be awhile before we can get to that.

We’re Homeowners!

After years of saving and waiting, yesterday we bought our first home.

It’s on 5 acres, 3 bedrooms, 1 bath and we love it.  We’re going to do a little painting and cleaning but hope to be moved in by the end of the week.

Avery’s Broccoli Face

Avery has been doing so well eating food!  Garrett is a picky eater so I wanted to do things different with Avery.  She’s been feeding herself a lot more and she’s doing great!  She’s had avocado, squash, blueberry, apple, pear, green bean, and carrot.   We’re on broccoli now, she doesn’t seem super impressed with it, but she’s eating it.

Not so sure about this.

Here Mama, you try some.

Singing a little song to me.

Angry song.

Getting sleepy.

Practicing my fake cough.

More fake cough.
