New York!

my older sister kara and i have always wanted to go to new york and see the rockefellar tree at christmas time. maybe since we saw home alone movies when we were little. this fall we got tickets and planned at road trip! she is living in concord new hampshire right now so it was about a 5 hour drive. it was beautiful, we drove through Massachusetts, and then Connecticut, and then we stopped by new jersey on the way home. i loved it and was so happy we went and got to see new things. new york has always been at the top of my wish list of places to go. it was very cold and we rushed from place to place, but it was all worth it. we saw dylans candy bar, f.a.o. schwartz and lots of other things.

gardner village is a cute little village of shops and bakerys and is so cute. they decorate amazing for the holidays and i love going over to check them out. right now we are living right next door so we stop by even more!!

family in town!

this year i was lucky enough to share my birthday with my family in town!! it was fun to spend a nice sunday at home with all the people i love and dont get to see everyday. so grateful they came to see us!

avenue LOVES his uncle JOSHIE! he followed him around and always tried to do what he was doing. very sweet:)

papa and gramma bought avenue a fire station and he couldnt wait to get it out of the box!

aaron and i took avenue to the aquarium in sandy to see the penguins. he didnt really care that much about the penguins. he liked the ones on the wall he could touch better.

he loved the star fish, he wanted to pick them up.

we had a good time but i think aaron and i were more excited to see avenue enjoy it, which i think he will more when he's older. he does say FISH-Y really cute tho!!

lately our family date night means getting frozen yogurt. whatever kind i get i have to top it with chocolate treats because those are what avenue likes. although he tries very hard to reach any topping he can while we are in line. there is a live band some nights in the little outdoor mall area outside and he likes to dance. pretty cute. he bounces his knees and moves his arms up and down one side at a time. i love his moves!

picky eater

i try new foods all day with avenue, and after he doesnt like any of them this is what he does. he goes over to the cabinet, grabs the bag of bread, gets himself a slice and goes and sits on the couch. really?! thats all you wanted? if anyone has any ideas of what to feed him im all ears!

what we did today

7am avenue wakes up and gets into bed with me
830am we both wake up for the day, breakfast
9am take a shower then bath
10am go to the grocery store where avenue waves to people as we pass them
1230pm lunch
130pm nap time for us both!!
then this stuff happened...

avenue loved this grapefruit soda.

he would take one sip then make a sour face and laugh cause every time it shocked him.

he asked for a cookie for snack and i gave him these. haha he actually does like grapes

then he got into all his toys

i love hanging out with my baby everyday, who is not really a baby anymore. he is so sweet and fun. he loves to sing now, which i love too. usually in the car or when im getting ready in the mirror he walks in singing. my favorite:)

shrek 3

last night we took avenue to the dollar theater to see shrek 3 and see what he thought. he was so excited and was yelling at the screen. he was just jumping on the seat, eating popcorn, screaming "duckieeee!" and trying to sneak soda. pretty cute. he got bored about half way through so we had to come up with creative ways to keep him entertained and he made it through. it will be a while before we take him again, but i think he had fun trying it out:)
