Day 180

This is apparently what goes on when Mommy is at work all day... I checked my email and had a picture of Miss Ava who had climbed into her bouncy seat all by herself and found another way to bounce it! Safe, huh? :)

Day 179

Ava got to swin with Aunt Stephanie today~! We had a birthday party at my aunt and uncle's house for two of my cousins who turned six! They have a pool and Ava had a blast! Thanks for taking her swimming, Steph!

Day 176

Today's picture isn't the greatest... I had to use my phone b/c our power went out tonight and after about an hour and a half, Ava and I had enough and headed over to my Mom and Dad's. Zach and my dad were golfing so Ava and I hung out with my mom until Zach came home to find our power back on...

I love this picture. It's like she was playing so hard and just needed to stop and rest a minute...

Day 168

This girl is all silly all the time these days. What a riot she is to be around!

Day 167

Notice the new additions on the cabinet doors. A super curious Ava means that trying to get into these wasn't far off - so we are preventing it before it happens! I did leave it off of the ones with the pots and pans... a girl's gotta have a little fun now and then!

This girl is definitely a water baby!! She gets so excited at bathtime and tries to get in the shower with us! I love that she's not scared of the water!

Day 164

Uncle Stephen watched Ava for a couple of hours today and she loved his pup! This picture shows her grabbing his coat and accidentally pulling out some of his hair - oops, sorry Ari!

Day 163

Here is a tired little girl who is fighting sleep and has been for the last hour. She is not currently as happy as she was when I snapped this picture!

Day 162

I caught Ava throwing her head back and laughing tonight and finally caught evidence of those two top teeth!

Day 161

Ava's kisses consist of opening her mouth and putting it on something - she usually only gives me and her grandma kisses, but today she had one for Mickey Mouse! She won't even give her Daddy a kiss! So sad for Daddy!

This sleepy girl got to go back to school today for Daddy's Day Out - and she had a blast!

Ava got a couple of licks of my sugar free Fudgesicle today. I think she liked it!

Day 158

Ava thinks that whenver we eat, she needs to as well, even if she has already eaten. Here she is opening wide for a bite of our food at lunch on our way home! She has a big mouth!!
