12 Weeks Old!

Avery turned 12 weeks old today. She will turn 3 months old next Tuesday!! According to our home scales, she now weighs 11 1/2 pounds! She is smiling A LOT and has started cooing and almost laughing. She is very interested in her toys and books now. She can also "roll" from her back to her side. She is very content on her side, so there is absolutely no effort to keep going once she gets on her side. She is getting very good at sleeping during the night....not every night, but most nights. Most of the time, she goes to bed at 9pm, wakes up around 5:30am and eats and goes right back to sleep until around 8:30am. However, this morning, she slept until 10am!! Crazy girl! She obviously knew we needed to be somewhere....

We went to the zoo today with the youth group. She slept in her stroller for most of her first zoo trip, but when she was awake, she was taking it all in. All in all, I think that it was a good day and that she had a good time. We are definitely going back---maybe we'll wait for the weather to cool down a bit though!

This is Avery this morning in her bouncy seat. She has gotten really good at sitting in her bouncy seat while I get ready. She LOVES the hair dryer.

At the zoo in her stroller. Taking in all of the sites...and smells. It was pretty hot (notice her glistening little face). She was a trooper.
Here she is with the pelicans. All of the water at the zoo was that horrid green because of an algae infestation.
Here's Avery with a close encounter with a goat. There is another picture of this, and the goat is nibbling on the stroller, but it is a little over-exposed. I have posted it below this one because her face says it all.

Again, sorry for the over-exposure, but when you zoom in on her little face, it is hilarious, and I wasn't sure if you'd be able to tell.
