It’s been almost 2 weeks since I had Averi and almost 1 week since she’s been home. I have to say things are going quite well. Shane has been home the past month but set off yesterday to get some work done in the office. Having my in-laws here has been invaluable. Kaili is being happily entertained, it has allowed me to ease into everything and Shane and I get some time away together.
Averi is as sweet as can be. She eats about every 3 hours and then sleeps with some awake time spread out during the day. I get up twice at night to feed her which isn’t too bad if I can get back to sleep in a reasonable amount of time. Having help here, I have the luxury to sleep an extra hour while someone gets up with Kaili, if needed. This will come to an end in a few weeks, so I am taking advantage of every second.
Kaili is so happy to have Averi home. She has taken this new chapter like a champ and is already a great helper.
Our first outing as a family was to Bali Hai for lunch. This bowl of Gazpacho was so good and the Mai Tai a tad too strong.
Girls just wanna have fun.
While the grandparents took Kaili to SeaWorld, Shane and I and a couple of friends took Averi to Ramona for some wine tasting. We leisurely made our way to 3 wineries, munched on too much cheese and enjoyed the much needed break from home.
Slowly getting back into the kitchen.
Hot tubbin’ with Grandpa G.
It sure is going to be fun watching these two grow up together.

What a happy day! Baby is here, mother is rested and happy. Averi looks so healthy and content. Both little sisters are darling. I’m sure Daddy is proud. I am so happy for you all.
Gorgeous pictures 🙂
