Remember this picture???  

Baby Erickson - Love

I can’t believe that May 21st has finally arrived.  The day that we had been awaiting for such a long time is today…and Avery is already 20 days old.  I’m so glad that we didn’t actually have to wait until today to meet her.  How strange to think about the last 3 weeks still being pregnant and still waiting for her to be born.  The past 3 weeks have certainly not been the easiest, but they sure have been memorable, happy, amazing, and life-changing.

Avery is Born.

.Going Home .Ready To go Home .Ready to go Home in Car Seat .Snow to Bring Her Home

All ready to go home!  First time in her car seat.  Me following Dad and Avery.  And the snow on our car that Adam had to scrape off before we could leave…since it’s so typical on May 3rd in Missouri!

.First Time in Her Nursery .Home with Our Bracelets .Home with Our Bracelets2

Our first pictures at home with all of our hospital bracelets…and Avery’s first picture in her nursery.  She just looked around contently like she knew she was home.  It was perfect.

For the family who doesn’t get to see Avery every day like Adam and I do, here are some pictures from the last few weeks.  Between the two of us we have taken over 170 pictures already.  I will try to share some of our favorites.

We are in love.  She is precious!

    I don’t know why, but the picture of Adam carrying Avery in the car seat really got to me. Thanks for sharing so many great pictures! So glad you are so happy! :)

      Aww thanks. I liked that picture too. Although the old guy that was pushing me in the wheelchair said he knew I was really just taking a picture of my husband’s butt. That wasn’t quite the point.
