Over due

So, this blog is well overdue. I have some sad and some happy news to share. I'll start with the sad. My uncle David passed away last week. It was a whirlwind of a time for us. His service was beautiful and he would have loved it; being a music director and hearing what wonderful things people had to say about him. In my previous post I said, very much hoping that it would come true, that maybe God would heal him and let him stay here with us. Please understand that I know that God knows what he is doing and though I sometimes want to question God, I just can't because no matter why I know God does what is best. We know we will see Uncle David again, and we know he is suffering no more.
Some happy updates:
Avery is learning to feed himself with a fork/spoon. His newest words are turtle and bubble car (this was very impressive to his pediatrician!). He just spent his first mini weekend (not quite a full weekend) away from home at the beach. He did fine, mommy not so much. :( He has grown up a full size in shoes and diapers this month. Everyday Avery becomes more and more of a little person with his own characteristics and preferences. He is learning so much and growing so fast. His newest decision is that he doesn't like broccoli (so we have to mix it in his mashed potatoes...) and he thinks that he can spank mommy and daddy when he is upset. We're working through that part. He is giving kisses without us asking for them and that makes me smile!
