25 Things to do with Avery

I can't wait to:

  • bake cookies
  • go for walks after dinner
  • go to museums
  • have Easter egg hunts
  • have pancakes on Saturday mornings
  • collect shells at the beach
  • have tea parties - real and pretend
  • teach her to love animals
  • teach her to share
  • play dress-up
  • have movie nights at home with popcorn
  • dance to the ipod - I'm gonna teach her my sweet moves, lucky girl
  • get ice cream cones on a hot day
  • carve pumpkins
  • teach her to be kind to everyone
  • go to storytime at the library
  • finger paint
  • go to the mountains to play in the snow
  • go to Disney World
  • take a mommy-and-me class
  • lay on the lawn and watch for shooting stars
  • ride bikes
  • pull her in a wagon in the 4th of July parade
  • play board games
  • take a billion pictures of her

I tell her all the time all the things her daddy and I are going to do with her, and mostly I get a blank stare, but every so often I get a smile. I think she gets all the fun we're gonna have. Or it's gas.


  1. Awww.... so many wonderful memories to come! I already feel this way about our niece, I'd imagine the feeling is just huge with your own baby. =)

  2. I am so jealous, and almost wish I could be little Avery. All those things sound like so much fun and will create so many wonderful memories.

  3. oh you guys are going to have so. much. fun!!! :)

  5. Avery is so sweet and lovely! I could have written that exact list when my babies were little and I'm happy to say we've done almost all of them! I love that you obviously are aware of the treasure those simple things are. Thank you for your sweet comment about Peyton's sweet shoppe party!
