Spring has sprung! Welcome April, goodbye March. We had an exciting month in home renovations, had some fun milestones with Avery, enjoyed some quality family time, and set records for our blog. Check it out:
1 We won our first blog award: The Liebster Blog Award!
50 Likes! (similar to the Facebook ‘like’ button, our blog had our ‘button’ pushed 50 times in the past month!)
10K no, I didnt’ run a race. Although I really need to get back into running. We hit 10,000 all-time hits this month..and it’s still growing! Not bad for having only blogged for 8 months now.
33 Countries have checked us out. We were super excited and tried guessing who these people are?!
21 posts. I’d love for that to be more, but there are only so many hours in a day!
1,983 blog visits – a record! (Our previous high was 1,884 in September)
64 visitors/day on average (up from 41 last month). The most visits was on the day we revealed the new Hallway color!
Avery & Family
6 Avery turned 6 months old this month!
5 typically how many times a night Avery wakes up in the middle of the night. We’ve had a rough month where Avery isn’t sleeping well (neither are we!).
0 number of foods Avery has tried and hasn’t liked. We shared pictures from him trying Peaches, Peas, and Bananas this month. Luckily, he’s loved everything so far! We’ll be starting Gerber 2nd foods this coming month!
3 I’ve attempted to make homemade baby food for three foods so far; bananas, carrots, and sweet potatoes.
1 Avery only moves in one direction in his walker: backwards.
10 Number of St. Paddy’s Day cards we sent out of Avery in his ‘Lil Charmer‘ outfit.
2 Avery has two new accessories… sunglasses & a baseball cap.
240 miles were traveled (to and from) to visit family in Vermont.
3,000 miles is scheduled for our first flight with Avery to California in June!
40 days I have to get back in shape for our big vacation to Costa Rica!
3 friends/family announced that they are expecting! (we are not one of them) It felt like baby fever hit when we heard about all three within a week’s time.
2 Grampy now has two boys to do guy things with… quite an improvement from living with 3 women for 20+ years.
4 It only took four colors, but we finally finished the hallway painting!
7 the number of meals we typically have displayed on our DIY Menu Board
0 number of projects left in the ‘finished’ kitchen
