Today I am spending a big chunk of the day with my niece, Avery. Avery looks just like her mommy, my dear little sister. She's a funny little girl and sounds like a chipmunk most of the time. She's a bundle of energy and amazingly smart and sneaky. She has a way of getting what she wants even when I'm pretty sure I just spent the last 20 minutes saying "no". She's has a lot of patients when she's trying to get her way.

Miss Avery was born in 2009. I remember when my sister called in a little bit of a panic when her water broke. I dropped my kids off with my mother-in-law and rushed over to her apartment. Once I was I got there I helped get the to go bags ready while we waited for her future ex to get to get there and take Jamie to the hospital. I followed right behind them in my car.

Jamie did great though the whole labor and delivery ordeal. I was so glad that I was able to be there for her and help her as best I could. Labor and delivery is no joke and Jamie did an awesome job bringing little miss Avery into the world. I was very proud of her.

Avery Valley Rittmann came into the world on June 20 at 7:10AM, weighting 8 lbs, 5 oz and she was 20.5 inches long. She was beautiful from the very beginning. This auntie was so excited to get to know the little girl this amazing baby would grow into.

I think it's time for a peanut butter sandwich and some girl scout cookies. Avery agrees. I hope you have a chance to enjoy this windy but sunny Thursday.
