Happy Birthday!

It was Avery's birthday last week, she is four! She's hardly my baby anymore, but we still call her our baby. She wanted to have a party for her birthday so we invited over her three friends from Sunbeams (her class at church). She was so excited and I think had a good time; she was awfully quiet. Roger was out of town on her birthday so we celebrated with the family the night after. It turned into a birth week... how great is that? We sure do love our little Avery, she brings such a great energy to our home. I enjoy the differences between her and Ashby so much. She is so girly, where Ashby is not, it's so fun. Although Avery is four now and hardly a baby, she did fall asleep in the car the other afternoon and it just reminded me that she's not completely grown up yet!

Here is Avery with the present Ashby picked out for her. We opened these presents as well as did under the plates on Thursday night. Under the plates is a Worth family tradition where every one gets a few surprises under their dinner plates that they get to enjoy prior to dinner. Every loves it! There are more pictures of Avery on her birthday, they just need to be rescued from a wonky memory card, they'll be up later (I hope)!
We love you Avery!

*As a side note, I am still very much pregnant and unfortunately probably will be for quite sometime still.....

It's funny--I KNEW it was Avery's birthday, but for a few seconds when I saw your title I thought you might have been making an announcement :)

I was wondering if you were gonna stick a "oh and by the way I had the baby yesterday" in there too!

Happy Birthday, Avery! We love you!

Avery looks so much like Ashby in that picture! So much fun. I can't wait for you to have your baby, I bet you can't wait either! Both of my sister-in-laws have had their boys so now I am just waiting for you! Keep us posted.
