Finding Time...

Finding time to post on here is becoming more and more scarce. I am going to attempt to update for the past couple of months. Note: the pictures are not in order -sorry.

First some Avery updates....Avery starting crawling when he was about 6 1/2 months old and has not stopped since. He started saying "mama" at about 8 months. I don't know if he really knows what he is saying.....but it works for me. Of course, he babbles and says other things, but nothing we can really make out. He loves to eat puffs, any kind of baby food, and well practically anything. :) He started pulling up on furniture (especially his crib) when he was about 7 months old and this past week he has started walking around the furniture and walking behind his push toys. At his 9 month checkup Dr E said that he expects him to walk early. Also at his checkup he weighed 18 1/2 pounds. He's getting to be a big boy! He loves taking his baths, wiggling and flipping over when you change his diaper, sitting in his high chair, begging for your food, and playing with anything but his toys. We swapped out his car seat for a big boy car seat this week. He was waaayyyy to big for his carrier. His feet poked out the end and he did not have any room to move. He loves playing with cell phones, crawling on the fireplace and eating the rocks out of it, and looking at magazines (although he normally ends up eating them or ripping them). He does not like to change clothes, wait for his food, or sleep when there is a crowd.

He also has begun sleeping in the bed with us. :( I really did not want this to happen, because I do not sleep well with him in the bed with us. Makes me nervous, that we will roll on him or he will fall off. None the less, he is waking up quite a bit during the night. He had been doing soo good about sleeping through most of the night, but at about 7 months he started to cry and scream about every two hours. I blame his teeth. We finally just gave up and put him in the bed with us. He still wakes up, but atleast we don't have to get out of the bed. Lazy, I know, but I need my sleep!

Avery had his first Christmas and WE thoroughly enjoyed it. I really want him to believe in Santa Claus, so I wanted to start the "tradition" early. Christmas eve we left cookies and milk for Santa. The next morning when we got up half the cookies were eaten, the milk was gone, the stockings were full, and there were tons of presents under the tree. Must have been Santa!! Avery went straight to the presents when he got up. He was excited! Santa didn't do a very good job of taking all the presents out of the boxes, but thats ok, I'm sure he was tired. ;) Here are some pictures of Avery's first Christmas.

After we finished at our house we went to Josh's grandmothers for brunch and of course to open more gifts. Avery got formula from Josh's grandparents. YAY!:)

This picture was taken at Josh's grandmothers house the morning of Christmas. He loved all the attention he was getting.

This picture was taken christmas eve at Josh's parents house (Nana and Pops). He got lots more formula, clothes, a Tiger blanket, and a truck. He got an Auburn shirt and Diapers from Aunt Keri and Ross.

Also, christmas Eve we went to Josh's Aunt Paige's to eat and play games. This year the "young" kids won again! We played gestures and it was soo much fun.

Avery was soo tired and he fell asleep while we were there.

This picture was taken Christmas Eve Eve. Avery was trying to open his Dad's present early.

Christmas night we went over to my mom and dad's to eat and open more presents. Avery got more toys and some clothes. The grand kids had a great time together and my mom really loved her picture of all them. The grown ups play dirty santa and everyone always has a great time. I have some pictures, but not on this computer. Check out Amanda Pittman's facebook page for those pics.

The day after Christmas we left about 9:00am and headed to Birmingham. This year the Till Christmas was in Birmingham instead of Opelika, which worked out great for us. We were traveling to Smith Lake on Monday to my Aunt Susan's lake house. We always play dirty santa on the Till side of the family and it's always a blast. This year's theme was "your favorite things". We a got Starbucks giftcard and coffee and the Eclipse movie. Definitley a few of my favorite things. That night we stayed at Aunt Keri's house. We woke up early the next morning (of course) and went and ate breakfast with Josh's mom, dad, and Keri. After breakfast we left to head north to Smith Lake. We also played Dirty Santa at the Lake House. This year the theme was "In the Kitchen". We ended up with a nice knife and some neat measuring cups. We had a really great time visiting with family, but had to return home that afternoon. Here again all these pictures are on facebook and I have not pulled them off. See my facebook page.

Here is a random photo of Avery goofing off for the camera.

These pictures are soo backwards! The pictures below were taken at Thanksgiving, but it has to do with Christmas. We took pictures in front of the barn at my mom and dad's for my parents for Christmas.

Annaleigh and Avery crawling around.

This is one of the pictures that we took of all the grandkids. It was hard trying to get them to all be still and smile at the same time. We did manage to get them to be still for a couple, but not all smile at the same time. :)

2o1o was one for the record books. Avery Bryant Till was born and Auburn won the National Championship. ;) Can't get any better than that! I cannot wait to see what 2011 holds for us!!

SEC West- check, Iron Bowl Win- check, Thanksgiving- check, Christmas Tree up- check ;)

WAR EAGLE! 12-0! SO, Auburn has won the SEC West and they Beat Alabama! We are super excited and hope that the winning keeps going! A National Championship would be awesome!

Avery has a new place to play. HE loves to see if he can get up on the fireplace. He has only accomplished it once, but he does not give up.

He doesn't love to play with his toys, he would rather play with "grown-up" things like the remote, cell phone and really anything you are using. Of course everything goes straight to his mouth when he gets it.

He is now sporting 2 teeth on the bottom. They are super sharp and he is not afraid to use them! :)

We went down to the beach to see Josh's family and for Avery and AL to meet for the first time. Melanie(Josh's cousin/AL's mom) and the family were at the beach for the week of Thanksgiving and we went down to see them the Sunday before. We had a great trip and Avery even got his picture taken at the Bass Pro Shop with Santa.

We didn't actually go out on the beach, but we did stand on the pavillion to get some pictures.

He liked to look at the beach, hopefully he will like to go next summer.

Thanksgiving was a little bit of a blurr, but I do remember eating. The morning of, Josh got called out at 2:30am and so he was really tired and needed to rest, so Aunt Keri came over and played with Avery while I did a little cooking. We had lunch at Barbara and Claytons house and then we had dinner at my parents. We took some pictures before we ate and had a great time. Avery liked to roll around in the grass and eat leaves.

Of course the Iron Bowl was this weekend and WAAARRRR EAAAGGLLE! It was a disaster at first, but glad to see Auburn get it together! On to the SEC championship!

The stockings are hung and the tree is up! We strategically placed the tree in between the couch and chair to keep ornament snatchers away. We can block it off with the ottoman.
Happy Holidays!

Football Season and random

Football Season is here!! We have been sooo ready! This is at Mandi and Dave's watch party.

Smiling at his daddy.


Avery is 6 months old now!
Here are some randoms that Avery does or has done........

This is the way Avery likes to sleep - all curled up in a ball.

He loves to play on the floor and look at the cow picture. He LOVES the cow picture. He looks for it everyday when we get him home from daycare. It makes him smile.

This was his first swimming trip. He wasn't so sure about it at first, but once he got use to it, he loved it.

Here is a random picture that I like.

More posts to come!

Fourth of July and a new toy

Hunny surprised everyone with this gigantic slide on the 4th of July. It was fantastic! All the little and "big" kids loved it!
The Big Kahuna!
Kyleigh dressed in her swimwear.

Josh and Avery at Hunny's house for the 4th festivities.

Laeton, Dylon, Kyleigh and Houston in their festive outfits.

This is a little out of order, but before we went to Hunny's house on the 4th, we were at Lake Martin with the Till side of Josh's family.
We always travel to Lake Martin every 4th of July to spend some time with Josh's Family. This year was no exception, even if we had to pack the house to go. We had a great time. Here are a couple of pics from the weekend.

Aunt Keri and Avery before we left.

The Fam. on the pier.

Melanie (and Al) and Avery sporting their 4th of July attire.

Daycare was closed the week of the 4th of July, so I took off to spend the week with Mr. Avery. I loved every minute and wish I could stay home a lot more with him! :) We didn't do much of anything, we just lounged around the house in our pajamas every day!

Avery got a new toy! I think everytime I go to Wal-Mart he gets something new! I decided he needed something he could sit up in to play, therefore he is now a proud owner of a play and bounce. So far he likes it. He loves to look and grab at the toys. When he does get a hold of a toy, it normally goes straight to his mouth. I assume he is teething, but I haven't seen any teeth yet.

He loves it!

Rocking and Rolling

Avery is over 3 months old now. Where has the time gone? He has started chewing on his hands and drooling, which makes me think he might be teething. I haven't seen any signs of teeth in his month, but I know they are coming. He also has rolled over several times. He will rock to the side a couple of times and then around the third try he will flip over to his stomach. He has even double rolled on occasion. He talks to us and smiles when he sees us and he knows he is about to get fed when he hears or sees us shaking his bottle. We recently took a trip to the beach with my family and had a great time. We didn't see any oil at the beach, but it was all around us. The Nall crew had a blast grilling, racing at the Race Trac, and spending time at the beach and pool. We managed to get some family pictures. See below...

We have many more trips planned for this summer. We are going to Lake Martin over the 4th of July weekend and are headed to Smith Lake in Arley, AL, July 17th and 18th. So far Avery has been a really good traveler and I hope it continues. Although, I think we might need to consider getting me a bigger vehicle, because of all the Avery "stuff" we have to take. :)

We saw Dr E. for ABT's 2 month check-up and everything looks good! Of course he had to have 4 shots and that was no fun, but he did ok during them. He weighed 11lbs 5 oz and was 24 in long. He is in the 50th percentile on his weight and well above avg on his height. He is going to be tall! We also had some pictures made with Amy Nichols last Friday. I can't wait to see them! On a sad note I will be returning to work tomorrow. I'm ready to go back, but I am not ready to leave my little man. Here are some pictures of our little boy!

War Eagle! Coloring is a little off in this one.

Playing around.

My favorite! I love that smile!
