Our little pumpkin turned 4 months this week!  As you can see she is just as surprised as we are.....
To celebrate her 4 month Bday we have been taking her to the beach all week:) The weather has been so beautiful here:)  We don't have a beach umbrella yet so we have to make our own little tent for her out of blankets. 
Turning 4 months has brought forth some new changes.  She rolled over for the 1st time, her legs have gotten super strong and
she is just loving her toys.  I hooked up this little toy bar to her Bumbo and she is having the time of her life with it.
She has also become a champ at tummy time:)   
Although it is fun to see her doing new things, it is kind of sad too see her grow up so fast. These last few months have been the best ever:)  We are so lucky to have our little Avery girl.

Like many girls I enjoyed playing school when I was little.  Avery has just started playing and she is loving it.  Except instead of playing elementary school she likes to play law school.  She teaches the class the material......
Gives her personal opinion on the subject.......
Then gets a little nervous when she doesn't know all the answers to the kids questions.........
OK she is a bit too young to know what she is playing but we have fun messing with her anyway:)

Scott went to Arizona for the J. Reuben Clark law conference this weekend and Avery and I had an all girl weekend.  It was fun hanging out with some of my girlfriends and Rachel came up to hangout too(Ric and Macady were in Utah).  When Scott got home we went down to the beach and Ray took some family pics for us.  Avery fell asleep in the car on the way there so she was very sleepy.... 
We went down to the pier in Malibu.  It was such a beautiful day but quite cold......

Rachel got a lot of fun shots but this is the only family one where Avery doesn't look half asleep:)  
Someday we will get one with Avery smiling her cute little smile:)

We had  a baby shower for Becca last week that was a lot of fun.  She is such a good mommy to little baby Gwen:) 
Avery came with me to the shower and had so much fun getting so much attention from everyone there.
All of the excitement tired little mini girl out and this is what she looked like at the end of the night:)

Scott and two of his friends Ethan and Jonothan, just joined the Malibu Rugby team.  Their first game was this past weekend.  Avery, Annie(Ethan's fiance) and I had a blast watching them play.  For some reason I could not stop laughing when Scott got the ball.  I am not sure if it was because he was tackling guys 3 times his size (which looked hilarious) or a nervous laugh since I was afraid he might get hurt (he has never played rugby before). Here is Ethan explaining the rules before the game started...... 
The guys all ended up playing great, their team won, Scott didn't get a black eye and he even made 3 goals.  His poor friend Ethan busted his lip open and had to get stitches :(  
I think the real reason Scott decided to play rugby wasn't to tackle guys and get his energy out but to wear this awesome uniform.........

Gwen and Avery finally met!  Our good friends Becca and Ryan recently had their lovely little lady.  She is so sweet and teeny.  

I think her and Avery really loved being introduced they were even holding hands.
