Trip to Sunburst and more

We went up to Sunburst this weekend to let Avery meet everyone. It was a nice little four day trip before I had to go back to work (not real excited). Carter and Landon were quite happy to see eachother when we got back Sunday night. Kyle gave them some shampoo mohawks while Erica, Mom, and I watched the Oscars!
Lando's was kind of sideways. Very cool.
Dick and Diana's house looks so good; they're still working on some stuff though. Carter helped Grandpa sweep up some carpet fibers. He loves to help clean!
Daddy gave Carter a nice ride around the house. He looks like he is winking at me. Auntie Kelsie - we wanted you to know he's obsessed with this Wall-E shirt you gave him. It's the only one he actually asks to wear!
Carter was having a cranky day on Saturday. We made him lay down and watch Nemo with his cousins (he fell asleep almost immediately). He had a really good time with Bre and Colten - they ran around the gym in Sunburst like maniacs.
It was really nice to see Callie and Nate this weekend too. Callie got to hold Avery a lot on Saturday when Carter was being a beast. He doesn't have many bad days so I should be nicer.
Diana found Carter some Macaroni and Cheese crackers. He thought they were delicious. He had some on the trip home in his carseat. He kept saying "Grandma get crackers for Carterman".
Carter told us he wanted to hold Avery. He's very sweet to her. He kept touching her face and saying "Hi Avery" over and over again.
He was very gentle with her. He's a good big brother. She looks a bit frightened however!
We went out to the farm for the afternoon on Friday. Great Grandma Bonnie held Avery for us while we took Carter out to look at cows, the horse, tractors, and big trucks. Carter had so much fun - plus Bonnie made him potato soup (one of his favorite things)!
She looks so cute in this picture. She was sprawled out on the bed after I fed her. She loves to spread out like a starfish - she's not a swaddling baby!
Carter was so excited about this big truck. He kept calling it "Mack" from the Cars movie. We also saw a blade for a combine which he called "Frank". He really pays attention to movies!
This cow really wanted to be our friend. She kept getting really close to the fence - then Josie would scare her away! Carter loved mooing back at all the cows.
This was quite fun. Carter wanted to play with the dogs on the bed, so it was a little crowded. He loves when "Yaney and Diba" play together.
This exercise ball might be Carter's favorite toy ever. He just loves to bounce it and roll it around. He looks insane!
I like when Avery does this. It's not really a smile, but sometimes she spots you and just opens her mouth into a big "O". She's so cute.
Mom made an absolutely delicious turkey pot pie last week. Carter ate three helpings of it. It had peas which he loves. That's funny because peas were the only flavor baby food that he wouldn't eat.
We had dinner at Erica's house last Sunday. Abb and Jord came with us. These cat pajamas from Kelsie and Terri Jo are so cute on my little Avery!
This is Avery's favorite way to be held. She passed out on Grandma last week. It always seems to calm her down.
This picture is just kind of funny. This hood on her little sweatshirt was so cute. I believe that was also Kels and Terri. You guys have excellent taste!
Landon was making the funniest faces for me last week. He made about three different model poses for me - very Zoolander. This one was my favorite.

6 weeks!

This is so cute. Carter and Landon were enjoying a nice nap together. They are so good, especially when they are sleeping!
Grandma Burgman got Avery this cute sweater the minute we found out she was a girl. She looked beautiful. She had her 6 week appointment on Thursday - she weighs 9lb 8oz and is 21 and 1/2 inches tall.
I have almost this same picture on last week's blog. He really loves his police car though. I'm glad it's been decent enough to go outside a little bit.

This is such a cute little smile from Lando. His hat is on backwards too. It's just a funny little picture.
I love this picture. She's looking quite content after her bath. Her little tiny round head is just precious.
Avery got to meet her Aunt Diane this weekend. She and Carter were quite charming for her visit. Diane brought some cute stuff from both her and Kathi. Thanks again - my kids are just a bit spoiled!
I just liked that the boys were sitting right next to eachother while watching the Incredibles (or as Carter says "MedicineTable=Mr. Incredible").
This is a nice little good morning smile from my girl. What a nice way to wake up!
This was her little Valentine's outfit. It's also a nice shot of her double chin!
Landon and Carter decided to sit on the SmartCycle from Grandma Bonnie. They were hilarious that night. They played with every toy Carter has!
Carter and Daddy were having a good time playing the Wii and eating sugar cookies. What more could a boy want?
I love when Carter entertains himself. He's just chilling in his innertube, reading his Finding Nemo book.
Carter was a little tired the other night! He passed out at about 8 and of course woke up the minute we got home.
Avery looks lovely in green. She was hanging out with Grandma but turned to find my voice. She's a very aware little baby. Brilliant of course!
Carter has decided that bubble baths are a lot of fun. Poppa was blowing bubbles at him, and he thought that was hilarious! It makes me laugh everytime I see it.

Carter loves to say "Poppa chase me" and "C'mon"! It's even more fun if he's naked.
We had to show this funny shirt from Grandma and Grandpa Barsness. It's so true!

Jordan and Avery are good buddies. I love these socks that Avery is wearing. They didn't really match, but she pulled it off!
It was Erica's 25th birthday on the 7th. We had dinner and cake for her on Sunday. Carter kept telling her "Happy Day Auntie"!

This is a cute picture of Jordan and the boys. They love their Abbey Jean and Jocko. I don't know what we would do without all their help!

good week

Avery got nice and warm with Jordan after her bath. She's very good at holding her head up! She's getting some nice arm rolls too!
Carter was so helpful with Avery's bath...ha ha. You can see his devilish grin and the water drops flying!
She really likes her bath so far. She gets very calm as soon as she feels that nice warm water.

Carter was excited to help. He pulled up his sleeves and got to work.
It's been sort of decent out lately. Carter even busted out his police car from the back porch. Can you tell he's saying "Cheese"?
Carter had such a fun night with Jordan, Abbey, and Chelbie. They rolled the big exercise ball back and forth and laughed and laughed!

Carter was chasing me around with his Daddy's badge. He apparently thought I was a "bad guy"!
Avery looks gorgeous in her onesie. It really shows off her thighs!
She tried her first bottle the other night. She was not too thrilled about it. I think she's looking at me like "What the hell is this?".

Erica got a picture of Landon trying to sit on the picnic table from our old dollhouse. He is such a goof!
I just like this big eyed look. She's very aware of all her surroundings. She's brilliant, of course.
I love this picture. She's starting to smile...I think it's almost on purpose. Some of it is gas I'm sure!
This is one of Carter's more fashionable outfits...a Nemo Little Swimmer on his head, a nice Nike shirt, his diaper, and his boots. He's a handsome fella.

Abbey is very good at getting Avery to sleep. She bounces her on the big exercise ball - it always worked with Landon.

Do you think this boy likes Spaghetti-O's? He loves them!
Carter found his sister's belly button. He was quite happy when her umbilical cord fell off - he wasn't sure what that was.

We took a fun little trip to Silver Bow the other night. I'm not sure how, but Landon and Carter ended up with two balloons each for the ride home.
Avery looks thrilled too! She slept in her carseat until it was time to go home. She really likes noisy places.
Jordan helped Erica and I out by following the boys all over the game room. She's their buddy for sure.

This is a cute picture of Carter and his Dad all snuggled up on the floor. Sometimes it bothers me how nice their eyelashes are - I get jealous.

Two pictures of Kyle in a row! Avery loves to sleep on her Daddy's lap.
Carter and Uncle Kyle were having a lot of fun with this pink innertube. He's a fun uncle! Carter obviously just had a gumball.
Carter wanted to run around in his diaper and shoes. Who am I to deny him such fun? I know Aunt Diane loves these physique pictures!
