9 Months Old

We are 3/4 of the way to 1 year old. I say it each month, but I CAN'T believe it! Slow down little one!!!
The "Around We Go" is now a play table because Campbell has gotten so big that when she would run circles around it, her weight and momentum would just lift up and sling around the center part. In the picture below, the "play table" is being used as a drum!
This is much more fun!

Playing in her new pool toy.

Her head got stuck on the roof!

This little thing loves to crawl on the tile floor. Her technique isn't quite perfected, but she has mastered the army crawl.
Pretend that you can't see Kevin's arm sticking out from behind the wall.

The Many Faces of Campbell Avery

Monday, April 20, 2009


Have I ever mentioned how crazy I am about this precious little thing? She is just scrumptious!
She is fascinated by Kevin throwing the balls in the air.
This is her face when she says "Yaaaaaeeeeeeeee-yyyaaaaaeeeee-yyyaaaaeee" over and over and over.
All business!
Showing some interest in the vacuum already. Yesssss! Anyone who know me, knows that I love me some vacuuming.

Trying to get a shot of all of her teeth. She has both of her little "fang" teeth and her two bottom teeth. Now her two front teeth are coming in and another tooth next to her bottom teeth.

My first attempt at a little ponytail. It's kinda pitiful. I think we'll hold off on that hairdo for awhile.

Little Trickster!

This is Campbell's new trick she pulled off (with a little help from Dad!)

We had such a great Easter!! We started off the morning with a wonderful church service at Elevate. We love our church so much and have become good friends with lots of people there. Our church was hosting an Easter EGGstravaganza yesterday afternoon with inflatables, games, pony rides, petting zoo, cotton candy, snow cones, and of course, an egg hunt. They sent out mailers all over the city inviting people to come, but we are a small church that is just starting up and it was the first time for this event. We had no idea how many people would come, but over 800 people showed up. It was so much fun, and everybody that attended was so appreciative because everything was FREE. You don't hear of that very often around here.

Sam and AJ came to hang out, and thank goodness they did because AJ entertained Campbell for us while I made cotton candy and Kevin and Sam worked a game.
Notice Campbell's little magna doodle thing. She's had this thing for about 2 weeks, but she finally figured out how it works, and NOW the kid can write on it!!! I'm sorry but I'm impressed. I know she's my kid and all, but she can make lines all over it and not on accident. She knows what she's doing.

Where the Wind Comes Sweeping Down the Plains...

Campbell and I had a great time visiting family in Oklahoma! We hadn't been back since Christmas so we were in much need of some family time. Just Cam and I made this trip since Kevin had a business meeting in Orlando during the week. We missed him SO much!

Campbell had her own seat on the plane this time which was A-MA-ZING! I didn't have to wrestle her for 4 hours on my lap. Praise the Lord!
We brought a DVD player to keep Campbell entertained. She's wearing her pink headphones so that all of the other passengers didn't have to listen to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Backyardigans.
Campbell sitting on Pops' shoulders just like she does with Kevin.

Playing with Nams
Campbell playing with my Dad and Tucker, their Yorkie.
Playing with the OSU bottle my dad got for her.
Cam with Granny. We went to Stigler for the day to see all of our extended family. Granny and Melissa made us the BEST lunch. Then we went out to my parents' land and saw the trellis system that will soon be the home to thousands of grape vines.
But first we had to stop by Granny's hen house to gather the eggs.
They don't quite know what to think about that thing.
We then stopped by Grandma and Grandpa Reavis's house to see our other side of the family. Grandma made us a great dinner, and Brooke was the best little helper with Campbell.
Aiden was very interested in the contents of Grandpa's pockets on his overalls.
The next day we headed to Stillwater to visit my brother Brett for Mom's Day. My mom had not been feeling well, but was such a trooper and had a great day.
Lauren, Brett, and Me. He used to come visit us at college with my mom and dad when he was like 10, and now we're visiting HIM!
Each Mom's Day, all of the fraternities and sororities pair up in an event called Spring Sing. His groups' theme was Retirement Home. It. Was. Hilarious!!! Here he is in his old person costume.
The fam-minus babies and husbands.
Our last day in town we had lunch with my mother-in-law, sister-in-law, Kevin's cousin Debbie, and her cutie pie son, Eli.
Clapping with Nams
Debbie and I with our sweet babies. They're only a few days apart.
We enjoyed our visit so much!!! The hardest part of being in San Diego is not seeing our family as much as we'd like, so it was so great to spend some QT with everyone. We love you all very much!!!
