“At first an ordeal and then an accomplishment, the daily run becomes a staple, like bread, or wine, a fine marriage, or air. It is also a free pass to friendship.”

Early Delivery!!!

So, I've been absent from the blogging world for a little while....but I have a good reason...
Little Avery decided to make an early appearance!!!   My water broke during my workout on Tuesday.   I will do a better recap of everything in a later post...For now, I just wanted to announce little Avery!

Avery was born August 10th at 3:40am.  She was 5lbs, 3 oz at birth and was 18 inches long!  She's so tiny!  

Thank you to everyone for the well wishes and bits of help!   An extra shout out to my friends Teresa and Amy who brought me preemie clothes in the hospital since she was swimming in the newborn outfits!  Thank you to Sarah for keeping the Lucky 13's updated for me and bringing us dinner in the hospital!   Thank you Deb for visiting and taking the awesome pictures used in this blog!

Loving being a mommy,


  1. Congratulations, Mandy! She's so beautiful and you look so happy! Can't wait to help you give that new stroller a test run!

  2. She came early so you could have more time with her! Congratulations again!

  3. Yay!!! Can't wait to spend more time with both of you!

  4. Mandy and Avery!!!!!! Words cannot express how happy I am! Avery is soooooooooo beautiful and I love her already. I can't wait to meet the 'lil bug. She is precious and I know, Mandy, you will be the best Mommy. Congrats to all of you on the start of your new family!!

  5. Baby!

    How are you holding up? I'm sorry I haven't called you in awhile!
