We had fun this morning at breakfast - I put a pair of John Deere (that's for you, Dad!) keys in her hand, and she actually held onto them for a while. I also brought out her super soft teddy bear/blanket, and she tried to eat it. So, that didn't last too long, but it was fun!
We're heading to KC this weekend for a long visit with my parents...they haven't seen her since the end of June, so it'll be fun for them to see how much she has changed. And, we'll see how she does on the long car ride. Ugh.
Have a great night!

Here's one of all of the mommies and their babies - there was some serious crying happening during this shot:
Here are all of the babies in wagon-wheel fashion - I don't know if you can see it, but Mackenzie (the baby to the left of Ava) has Ava's strap in a death hold...we were joking that Ava was going to have to go home with them tonight if she wouldn't let go.
And this one is just too darn cute - I walked away for a second, and Ava was snuggling up to Jack. Looks like there might be some competition for Dylan! :)
All in all, this was a great class to take. It offered so much support for all of the new mothers. It also gave us the opportunity to make sure that our babies were doing normal things, and that none of us were alone in the new-mommy phase. I would highly recommend this class to anyone with a new baby!

On a non-Ava note, by dear hubby purchased a new addition for the backyard...check these out! We think they will end up in front of the garden - this may be the closest we ever get to living on a farm. Consider this a tribute to my dad! :)
Have a great weekend!

Last night, Scott and I took Ava, Spanky, Darla, and Lucky for a walk. Scott managed the dogs, while I managed the baby. The dogs had a great time, pulling, barking, sniffing, and generally getting tangled up with their leashes. Ava must have been bored - check out this photo! By the end of the walk, she was fast asleep...
I also took this photo of her asleep in her swing - I kept trying to prop her head up, and it kept falling. She seemed content to have it rest like this, no matter what I did!

Yesterday, Ava and I took a road trip to Wisconsin to visit my friend Lisa and her new son, Dylan. Dylan was born exactly one month after Ava, and we've been joking that they will be boyfriend/girlfriend. Their first meeting was pretty uneventful until we put them in the crib together. Ava reached for his hand (ok, she was probably just stretching, but the placement of it was perfect!) and then she got a big grin on her face. Dylan was in a milk-coma and didn't respond, but that's ok, Ava will be persistent!
Have a great weekend!
