18 months

Avy had her 18 month check-up last Wed. It went...ok. She screamed whenever the DR. touched her and was terrified at the Stethoscope. I'm thinking Stranger Anxiety has kicked in. She had three shots and was not happy with me until I let her feed me her sucker. YES, She wanted me to have her sucker. She thinks it's hilarious to feed me! This is what else Avy has been up to:

  • Says Peas and tanks (please & thank you)
  • Says mommy, mom, matha, nelne (mellanie), Poppa, nana, keg (Craig), Da(Amanda), Kical(Michael), Kiee(Kiley), TyTy, cheese, dog, bird, moon, hey, no, light, ball, ewww, and tons more that I can't think of at the moment!! She's a great talker!
  • Can point and say, eyes, Nose, teeth, Hair, toes, belly (though she calls it baby!), and just point to her ears, head, fingers, knee's, hands, & tongue
  • knows animal sounds, moo, meow, arrrgg (LION), zzzz(bee) & Monkey..00hh, ah, oh
  • Can go up and down the stairs
  • Runs, Jumps (sort of), dances, marches, climbs Everything
  • LOVES Caillou. Starting to like Elmo!
  • is still so easy to put to bed
  • has two bottles a day. Naptime and bedtime. Those are the only times she gets a paci, or a bubbi and she calls it.
  • Loves storytime, I read a book at bathtime
  • Wakes up at 6:30, Naps at 12-3:30 ish, Bedtime is 8:30
  • Does not like mommy going to work...runs after me saying...hey, hey. hey, mommy. it breaks my heart.
  • Loves Disneyland...especially the Playhouse Disney Show!!
  • Loves to color
  • Loves TyTy our Pit Bull
  • Still has the most beautiful Blue eyes and blonde curly hair
  • Weighs 25 lbs
  • 31 inches Tall

I'm sure I'm forgetting a ton of stuff!! Avy is my perfect baby girl! she is getting too big. I fall in love with her more every day...even when she has major Tantrums! I love you Monkey Girl...more than all the Stars in the sky. And then some!

First half of Summer

My momma and my tired looking baby at Auntie Manda's Last pep Rally!

My mom, well both of my parents have been amazing for me these last few months. I can't put into words how much I love you both. Thank you for helping and just being there for me in every way possible!
Yes! This picture cracks me up! This is my sister Amanda (Driver). She is trying to leave for Grad Night. I am behind her taking my time getting the carseat out of her car. lol. Avy wanted to "play" with Manda too! hehehe

My amazing backbone! Of course we are missing Michael. He was there in spirit!


She graduated!!! So proud of my sissy!

Cheese! Avy adores her Auntie DA!!

Something new sort of...

June 11th, 2010
Auntie Da's Graduation Dinner!
Life has been beyond crazy lately. I'm doing the whole single mom thing now. Believe me, this is something I never expected to happen but I'm doing pretty dang well considering. I just recently got a second job. So things for Avy and I are looking up. For the first time in months and months, I can honestly say that I feel amazing. I no longer feel the weight of my failing relationship on my shoulders. I'm excited to see what the Future brings for Avy and I. Things keep getting better and better. New posts coming soon!!

Wild Animal Park

I feel like we have annual Passes everywhere! This Trip to the Wild Animal Park was like a month ago! It was SUPER hot...but a ton of fun! WE went while the Butterfly Exhibit was up and running...which was beautiful!
In line for Journey into Africa! She is such a ham!

Inside the Butterfly Exhibit, with my sister and Princess!

"Get off my stroller Auntie DA!"


If she wasn't my Daughter we would be Twins!

Like Mother, Like daughter!


Yep, Aby (As Kaelen calls her) and Kaelen love each other! They are a crack up. I'm so glad they get to grow up together!
They like to chase each other...and then laugh. It's hilarious!


Happiest Place on Earth

I bought An annual Pass!! I love Disneyland and now so does Avarey!! I bought our pass May 6th and we have already been twice. I must say I didn't know what Avarey would think about Disneyland...but She loves it! Her favorites;
Playhouse Disney Show at California Adventure
The Carousal at Disneyland

She looks like such a big girl here!

Minnie...whom I promise she adores despite her face!

I'm standing behind the "A" I wouldn't leave her by herself. Though people walking by thought my mom put her up there by herself and then left to take a picture!

My favorite. I have a picture with my dad on this ride when i was Avy's age!

Look at her bum! Is she not the cutest thing?! She stood there watching Dumbo forever! She did not want to leave.

Someone learned how to turn around and look at mommy. She thought it was hilarious. I know I shouldn't have humored her by taking a picture but I couldn't help myself.

Nana and Avy

WE have gone now every Thursday... and every time It is perfect. Not crowded, not too hot...just perfect! So glad I got a pass! I'm looking forward to a magical year at Disney with my Princess!

Nixon Library

I adore my sister.
~ Amanda, Kiley, Hilary~
Not only do I adore Manda, but so does my daughter!
The only picture of the three of us and Manda's Eye's are closed...
She looked BEAUTIFUL!!


It's been about a month since I've posted anything. Life is crazy. I know I talked to a few of you and you are aware of what's been going on. John and I are very different people. I love him but have somewhere along the line fallen out of love. Many incidents lead to us falling apart and though they are important it's not necessary to go into detail. Long story short is that John is now in Arizona working and living. Avarey and I are at my parents. More than anything I wanted a happy ending, happy family, to get married...but I've come to the realization that John and I are not meant to be. I'm stressed, but relieved. John left yesterday after spending the weekend here with Avy...He hadn't seen her in 6 weeks. I kind of felt numb when he drove away...but at the same time I felt like a weight has been lifted off my chest. I'm not sure what tomorrow will bring but I do know Avy and I will be just fine.

Yes she is all GIRL...and I love it!


I LOVE Baseball! I grew up watching both my brother's play ball as well as my dad! Baseball is in my blood! I especially love going to games! During Spring Break, My Dad got some great seats from his friend and we took Avy to her first Angels Game! She was sooo good! No whining or crying! She loved it...and so did I until I got hit with a foul ball. Yes out of 40,000 people I would get hit by a foul ball! I still have a massive bruise on my leg and the game was 2 weeks ago. This was only the First of MANY games little MISS Avarey Jordan will be attending this season! Thanks Poppa and Nana for taking us along!

Av's 2nd Easter

Avy and Ty Ty!!
Mommy...There is something in this thing!

She totally got the hang out finding eggs and putting them in her basket!!

Candy too early in the morning...

Avarey's Easter Basket!

Our Beautiful Dyed Easter Eggs!

Daddy, Mommy and Avy!

Wow how this year flown by! This is a picture of Avarey's first Easter (2 months old)! I am in just as much amazement of her now as I was when she was just born! Though sometimes I wish I could freeze time and have her be my little baby forever, I love watching her grow and learn!
Easter Twenty Ten was amazing! John, Avarey's daddy spent Easter with us. He's been working in Arizona since the end of January. I'm glad I got to take a picture of the three of us. WE miss having him around.

She almost fit in her Easter Basket...ahhh I miss my itty Bitty Avy!
