Newest Title For Avery Anne

Avery has been described as a lot of things in her short 2 years.  Most of them are things you and I are envious of....Rockstar, Amazing, Angel, Strong, Determined, Brave, Hero....but now she gets to add another very important one to the list.  This is one she didn't have to do much for, but is very proud of nonetheless. 

We are expecting a new baby in the the Christiansen family at the end of the year.  This time we are shooting for south of Christmas, by about a week.  Another Christmas Baby!  I know we are asking for 2 miracles in a year, but I'm hoping we've been good enough the last year to deserve them both!  Avery is well aware of where the baby is and when asked will promptly lift up my shirt and point to my belly.  It's adorable, however can catch my chubby butt off gaurd at times.  We are definitely in the tired and queasy phase of things but are hoping to be done with that by the walk on June 4th.

Speaking of the walk, I have a plan.  I had a dream a few weeks back that we took a picture of all that came out for the walk standing behind Avery.  Avery will be out front, blue glasses and a smile, in all her glory with her bling bling gold walker.  This makes me giggle to no end and I sure hope that everyone that has been following our journey and supporting us will be there in that picture.  What a fantastic thing to be able to give her for the rest of her life - a picture of HER TEAM.  The ones that stood behind her the entire way. 

Please join us on the 4th if you can - you can walk or you can come out for the hotdogs - either way, being there means the world to us.  The walk begins at 8:30 am and goes through ealry afternoon.  The park will be filled with all kinds of activities that day, so there will be plenty to do.  Bring the kids, bring the neighbors, bring the dogs....Miss Jersey Anne will be in attendance sporting her t shirt.  They will also have Team Avery bracelets for sale - something we never had thought to do before.  More information can be found at the website at  We are really excited for this day - it marks a long year and a half completion of treatment, atleast for the time being and we'd like nothing more than to celebrate it with Team Avery.  Hope to see you all there!
