Cold.. Yucky cold.

I suppose it's that time of year.. Avery has a cold and just can't get rid of it! It's so frustrating, when your baby is sick, you just wish you could take it away and ensure the pain yourself.  I have been praying so hard for God to take her sickness away and to be healthy again. I know He is watching over her, and I just need to be patient. I just feel so bad for her. Took her to the dr on Wednesday and he said her lungs sound great, so that's a plus! I guess we will just wait it out, cold medicine, Vicks and the humidifier! 

I have to admit, I have finally decided to catch up with what's "fashionable" and got some skinny jeans/leggings and boots. I wore the first outfit today and everyone was shocked! Good shock! I don't take compliments well, but was glad I got good comments and that I didn't just look stupid!! Lol.  Here's a pic of my boots

Oh the joys of teething. The crying, the whining, the foot stopping oh my! I think we just have a few left & we will be in the clear.. But she has gotten a bunch all at once is why it has been sooo bad! We will overcome it! 
Christmas is just around the corner and I am really getting excited! Lots of fun to come.   Jesus is the reason for the season! I know that saying may seem silly and overused to some.. But I just like it! 
Here's the chalkboard in my office. I like to put all sorts of sayings, quotes, just whatever's up there-people are always on me at work when I don't change it every week!  I found this saying and I really like it! 
Here's a few more pics! Enjoy! 
^above is my friend SarahJesse with Avery and her daughter Lydia! This was at cookies & cocoa with Santa. Avery wasn't a fan! Maybe next year!

Little Missy

She is growing up! 18 month checkup and Avery is FINALLY 20 lbs, and 14 ounces!!! Yay!! 
She is definitely a momma's girl still.. But she is really starting to take up with her daddy quite a bit. 
We had a stint of really warm weather so we took advantage and played outside! She loved it! 
She also started a new school (we call it school, even tho it's really daycare) and she has done so well! She is really learning and I'm so glad! 

Full time mom, with lots of side jobs too.

Recently someone made the comment that when they were my age they held down 2 jobs, while having children at home as well. Let me also mention, this was a man who was telling me a little about his life. 
I proceeded to explain that I work 8-5 and although I do not get monetary funds  from all my "other" jobs... I am working all the time. Not only do I work a Monday thru Friday job, I'm also a wife (that's the biggest job sometimes..haha), I'm a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend.. Oh yeh I'm also a Tupperware consultant! So there! 
Do you think I have time for much more? Please don't take this the wrong way, I'm not trying to defend myself.. But it's all just came to the surface here recently. I'm not just an 8-5 gal and that's it.. I've got plenty of "work" going on!   Don't we all? There's never enough time, never enough $$, but we make it work. We choose how we live our lives, and that is how it goes.   I work 24/7, and that's how I like it!   Rant over.. Haha
