birthday dress and cookies

I'm happy to report that Avery slept in until 7:30am this morning.  It was so nice.  I love not being woken up before 7am.  I mentioned in my post the other day that we received one of Avery's birthday presents early.  Her grandpa Rick and grandma Liz sent her a light pink Anywhere Chair from Pottery Barn Kids.  It is adorable! 
Here is Avery sitting in it this morning.  She doesn't know how to get in and out of the chair, and already face planted getting out of it.  She will figure it out in time.  She'll have many years in this chair, she has lots of room in it now!
We decided to go out to lunch today.  Since Avery's first birthday is in less than a week and her party is one week from today, I figured it was time to start letting her wear some of her birthday gear.  I put her in this cute birthday dress today.  She was more interested in crawling around and playing with her sandals than having her picture taken. 
Her dress says I love sprinkles and icing!
My big girl getting to everything in her changing table cubbie.  I finally had to move her lotions, hair brush, nail clippers, aspirator, etc. that I had in a basket in the cubbie to her bathroom today. 
We enjoyed a really yummy lunch at Cypress Grill.  They have wonderful Cajun food.  Avery made some friends at the table next to us.  She liked the garlic bread, red beans, and rice she had for lunch. 

Later this evening, Avery enjoyed her dinner while watching college football with her daddy.  Here they are. 
We made some chocolate chip cookies today.  Eric took some to work with him today so I wouldn't be tempted to eat the entire plate tonight.  I love home made cookies!
I'm caught up on all my laundry and cleaning, so I'm relaxing this evening with my cookies and DVR.  Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
