Windblown Troll

Ava's becoming a real handful in the bathtub...Scott and I were remembering how easy she used to be when she just sat there. Now, she's standing, running, fall, laying on her belly, growing bubble beards from drinking the bathwater, and doing anything she can to make us laugh. We do giggle a lot during bath time, so even though it is more work to get her clean, it's a lot more fun.

Scott decided to give her a fun 'do the other day. Ava's finally getting some hair - and normally, it stands up all over, like chicken fuzz. The only time it lays flat is when it's wet...but not this night!

Scott eventually called her a windblown troll...and you know, what? He's right!

Just 4 more days until our little sweet pea is ONE! We are looking forward to my parents coming up for a visit on Wednesday, as well as the family party on Sunday. My parents are celebrating their 60th birthdays this summer, so we'll be taking them out to party, as well!

One of my co-workers went to Florida for a vacation, and he brought back Dumbo! Ava wasn't quite sure what to think, but I thought for sure she'd love his trunk. And I was right!

Our three little doggies were so tired yesterday...I like how they're all camping out in our room.

On a very sad note, we lost Scott's Aunt Linda this week. She passed away very unexpectedly on Tuesday morning. Linda was a kind, generous, and incredibly giving person - she will be greatly missed by many. It was a beautiful day for a funeral yesterday - I like to think that Linda had something to do with that. So far, we've had 3 funerals in the last 6 months...I'm hoping we have filled our quota for a while.

Don't forget to tell your parents, siblings, children, friends, etc. that you love them today!

I'm sorry to hear about Scott's aunt. How sad. On a lighter note, I love Ava's hairdo! We play those same games during bathtime and end up with more water out of the tub than in the tub most nights!!

I'm so sorry to hear about Scott's aunt. That's very sad. I think I remember her from your wedding.

Welcome to my world of challenging bathtime!! I don't think Dylan has ever sat still. :) (shocking, I know!)
