TWO MONTHS OLD! {6.19.2013)

This last month flew by and it became harder and harder to imagine putting Avery down knowing that soon enough  I would be away from my little man for 10 hours a day after being inseparable for the last 11 weeks.  Our new schedule will have Wes dropping off at the sitter and me picking up. On a good day we all will leave the house at 7:15 and I will pick up at 5:30 (10.25 hours) on a busier day he will leave around 7am and I will pick up at 6pm (11 hours). This seems unimaginable to me right now to be away from him for 11 hours a day! No more working until 10pm anymore - unless I am at home and my baby is in bed sleeping and doesn't want to be snuggled.

So from Approximately 4 weeks to 8 weeks old these are some of the highlights of Avery's life.

4 Weeks Old - May 17 thru May 23
