Happy Mother's Day!

We had a wonderful day today! Daddy took care of the dogs and Ava this morning so Mommy could sleep in. Unfortunately for Mommy, sleeping in is just not an option any more - I was wide awake and ready to get stuff done at 7am.

Scott made us breakfast, and then I opened the gift Ava made for me at daycare (a cute paper "flower" card where the petals were made out of tracings of her hand on paper, and a very sweet "Mom" poem.) And from Ava and Daddy, I received a necklace with an engraved "A" and her birthstone on the pendant. Very pretty and special!

We spent the day doing errands, visiting Grandma Deb and Grandpa Whitey, and video calling Gramma Karen and Grampa Doug. We also spent some quality time outside, admiring the garden, the windmill, and our beautiful green lawn. Can't wait to let Ava play on it this summer!

Scott and I both had a very rough week at work last week - thank goodness for Ava who makes us laugh all of the time. A few nights ago she put her head down to the bathwater and was lapping it like a dog! 1.) Gross! but 2.) Yay...maybe she was thinking about her swimming classes and how they're not so scary after all!

I'm looking forward to going to a HUGE babies/kids stuff consignment sale with my friend Lisa this out, Ava, Mommy's going to come back with a ton of stuff for you!

OMG that video is so funny! I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one w/ a weird kid. And good job Scott and Ava on the Mother's day gift. Can't wait to see it!
