Avery is 7!

I'm falling a little behind on posts again! It's been pretty busy lately especially with Avery having two separate, bad colds within the same week and then some... I know you are wondering how this is possible but let me tell you, it IS possible. The one thing we can be thankful for is the first one had cleared up right before her birthday weekend! She had three great days of birthday, Friday through Sunday, and then the cold returned on Monday. BUT it was a great three days!!

Here is the pretty girl on birthday morning!

and a good shot of that missing front tooth :)

She had a party at school with her classmates and teachers. It also happened to be music therapy day that Friday, which we are learning quite quickly is something Avery adores. Now, I can tell you she likes to jam in the car to certain songs, but now we know that she also likes to jam to live performances!
She's singing and shaking bells

Do you think she is enjoying herself a little?

She had a good time at her little school party too. Bub the hub, Maddie and I brought Avery her favorite, Chick-fil-a, for lunch and then we ate chocolate chip cookie cupcakes that Maddie and I had baked for her. She was a fan!

Last year, we had a super fun peanut butter and jelly themed party in the backyard and invited lots of family and friends. This year we decided to keep it super simple and just had Avery's grandparents, my brother, and hub's sister over. Little Bub was happy the whole time! She got another cupcake too, this time chocolate with vanilla icing and sprinkles.

"Happy Birthday to Avery!"

We feel very lucky that Avery has so many sweet friends and family members that love and care about her. They helped us give her such a special birthday, and I know she felt and appreciated everyone's love, even though she doesn't have the words to express it.

On Sunday we had a few neighbors over for Super Bowl, who brought over a bunch of food and ... did you guess? Avery got yet another cupcake! This was one seriously happy, well-cupcaked birthday girl. 

I'm still getting used to the number seven... not sure I was ever entirely used to the number six, so this might a struggle. She is growing beautifully though, isn't she?
