Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July! Hope you had a safe, and fun celebration! We didn't stay up late enough to watch any fireworks, but it seemed like everyone in the neighborhood was having fun setting them off. The dogs did really well, and didn't freak out, and even though there was one that landed by one of our bedroom windows, Ava didn't wake up at all!

It's been pretty nice here, so we've been taking advantage of the warm weather to let Ava use her new pool. I think she's really liking it! The toys help to make it a little less scary for her.

Ava's newest thing is to say, "Uh-oh..." after she's dropped something. I have no idea where she learned that from - maybe daycare? It's really cute, though, to hear her vocabulary expanding each day.

"I'm not really sure about this pool thing..."

Toys make it all better!

Scott thought it would be fun to put goggles on her for a few minutes. She did really well with them and didn't even try to pull them off!

All dressed up for the 4th! I love the little bow in her hair in the 2nd picture.

Ava's learning more and more about sharing. Her dolly now gets to go in the toy stroller, and Ava was even putting her in the exersaucer and holding her up to play with all of the toys on it! It's never too early to learn about sharing with others...:)

So cute! I bought a little pool this last week too for the boys and they LOVE it!! Owen just sits and splashes and laughs. Ryan of course is in and out and running around like a crazy man, but still enjoys it. And I think the biggest fan of it is Delta! She climbs right in and lays down in the water. I'll post some pics on our blog of her soon. It's hilarious! Glad you are all doing well. Miss you!

I can't believe I didn't comment on this post yet! But I think I read this one in the car on my iPhone on the way back from my parents... I LOVE how she has her dolly in the stroller! That's so sweet.
