This girl has attitude!

We had a really fun week...at swimming on Monday, Ava was dunked twice, and each time, she came up with a little grimace on her face, but she didn't cry. I think that's a good thing...at least she's getting used to the water and isn't crying like she was the first night.

My friend Lisa and I went to a really big consignment sale last Wednesday, and I managed to pick up a bunch of "new" clothes for Ava for the summer, and even some cute pieces for the fall. I only found one toy for her this time, so it was nice to spend most of the $$$ on clothes for her.

She's been walking around at daycare and on Saturday, she took 10 consecutive steps at home! I've been trying to catch some of it on video, but as soon as I turn it on, she likes to sit down and crawl to me. Kinda defeats the purpose!

Scott was gone overnight on Saturday, so Ava and I had all day and night to hang out together. We spent a lot of really good mama-daughter bonding time together. We went shopping, did laundry, napped, and played together. It was the perfect way to spend a chilly Saturday.

She was giving me attitude this morning with her Cheerios...that, or she wanted to eat what I was having (which was a bowl of Cheerios...hmmm...)




It's been a little cooler the last few days, so I wanted to squeak in a few more wearings of her winter clothes. She looks so tough in this hoodie! (Yeah, right!)


Here's a cute bubble-bath-beard after one of her recent bath/drinking sessions...she just loves slurping up those bubbles! Last night she found the drain, and kept poking her finger in it as it was draining...I thought kids were usually scared of the drain. Not this one, I guess!


It looks like it's going to be a lovely day today, so I'm hoping we spend most of it outside. Time to weed!

Love the bubble beard! And the "attitude" face. Dylan tried brats this weekend because he REALLY wanted what was on our plate. He loved them... that must be the reason I was craving them through my whole pg! I hope she'll walk for me on Sunday- maybe give Dylan a few pointers... maybe not! Maybe I'm not ready for walking just yet!
