Making memories...

Well, this is the first time I've opened my computer since my last post. I've really enjoyed just spending time with my girl. She's growing up so incredibly fast. I love writing about Amelia and what's new, but I've felt the need to back away from the blog a little and be fully present with really enjoy the moments and worry less about getting a picture or recording each and every one of them. I'm not sure that makes sense to anyone but me. I still take lots of pictures but so many of them are taken with my phone anymore. Some have asked what we've been up to over the past few weeks - so here's just a little bit of what's going on with The Averitt Fam.

Amelia and I took a road trip to see my parents. We had such a great time with them.

Always makes me wish we lived closer after being with them for a few days.

My oldest nephew, Ty, graduated from high school. I still can't believe he's 18. I remember when I took him to pick out supplies for kindergarten...he chose a Tommy Hilfiger lunch box. That still makes me laugh to this day. I had to fight back the "ugly cry" at his graduation. Didn't need to draw the attention off the graduates and onto my sobbing-self, but man was it emotional to see him up on that stage!

We celebrated the marriage of Clay & Mary Lee!

She was a gorgeous bride and it was a beautiful wedding.

I loved having a reason to dress up and get out of yoga pants for the evening!

We headed to my parents again and celebrated Memorial Day with lots of family!

Amelia was sick for a couple of days.

We've had lunch with friends!

We've played in the pool a lot.

I started a new book!

We had our first snow cone of the season!

And tonight Amelia's favorite buddy is spending the night with us. :)

I've been reading some blogs from my phone but blogger hasn't allowed me to comment lately. I hope to catch up with you all soon! I hope you're staying cool (this heat is brutal) and making lots of memories with your family.

Love to all,

I know what you mean by stepping away for a while. Happy to hear you and your girl are enjoying sweet time together. :) I love her bathing suit!

Love it! Mika has the same swimsuit as Amelia. :)

I know what you mean about wanting to be present. I feel like I open my computer once a day, if that. It is amazing how fast time flies now and how they literally change every day.

Loved the re-cap and the pictures! I'm not sure A could be any cuter!!

You looked amazing at that wedding, girlfriend!

I had Emma try on that bathing suit last week, but she was in between two sizes and it didn't fit =( Amelia looks precious in it!

Have the best weekend!

I can totally relate to stepping away...I have had to do that at times too and it's always so refreshing. I saw you today at the shower and wanted to introduce myself but never made it over there - was crazy chasing my son around. :) Just wanted to say hi though...your daughter is just so precious!

Rebekah said...

I never commented...just read;) So fun to meet you yesterday! You are so so sweet just as I would have expected!!!
i totally agree about taking the time and enjoying each little moment with our babies. I have been on both sides and am trying to find a healthy balance. They just grow up too fast.
