BUT, later that night, both Scott and I were playing with Ava, and out of nowhere, she waves at Scott, and said "Hi..." again. He looked at me, I looked at him, and we agreed: this WAS her first official word! So, she's done it a couple of times since then, and is always waving when she does it. I'm surprised that was her first word, and not "dada" or "baba" or something like that. Apparently, we have a smart little baby who decided she didn't want to choose which parent to call out to, first. :)
Here are some shots from this morning - her normal Sunday routine is to have a bottle, and play while Daddy reads the newspaper. Today he turned on Sesame Street for her, but she wasn't interested. So, he's now watching a much more mature program for him: Looney Tunes. He's just a big kid, too!
It's supposed to be beautiful today, so I think we're going to spend the day outside, working on our garden. Have a wonderful day!
