So Whatcha Been Doin'?

Life has been busy!! Busy Busy Busy!

Summer is coming to a close which means that I only have 2 weeks left of my mat leave and being home with my baby everyday. I am starting to plan for the upcoming school year but am also procrastinating it at the same time. It's almost like if I don't get stuff ready then the time won't go by...silly I know! But truth be told the school year is on my mind a lot and I have started to type stuff up and get read to go back...a little sad, and a little excited.

When I think back on this summer the best memory will be the time we spent at the cottage. I think that was a huge turning point for Avery has she grew so much in the time that we were there and has become such a grown up baby in the weeks we have been home since going. I know it's been forever but here are some pictures of our time at the cottage...

Bowl on my head....funny baby!

First ever fever...sad baby.

I just love her. A lot.

In other news, Friday was my birthday and I made the peanut butter chocolate pie that I posted about last week as my "birthday cake". SB also made it after reading the blog post and we decided to share our thoughts. I liked the pie but found it a little rich... also I made it the day of because the recipe said it would set in three hours...or overnight. Overnight is better. Next time I think I might half the sweetened condensed milk and leave out the layer of melted chocolate in the crust, but overall it was delicious. I highly recommend it!
