Avonlea | Six Months

Firsts: First trip to the library.  It’s my life’s goal to make her a book lover, & I think I’m on the right track!  She got at least 15 new books for Christmas & is loving it! Her first two teeth!  She’s been teething for several months, but right after she turned five months, her […]
