Tea Party for Two

Ava's newest thing is to drag one of her little chairs to our kitchen table, move my chair out of the way, and put her chair in my chair's place.  Is she trying to get rid of me?  Seriously, my chair is the furthest away from her little table, and there are 3 others she could move!  She also thoroughly enjoys running around with her little step stool.  So, it came as no surprise the other evening, when we found her sitting underneath the table, with Scooter on her chair (which displaced my chair, of course), and Blankie and 2 tea cups nearby.  You can't see it in these pictures, but her little tea pot is on the stool, which is right next to her chair.

Hanging with Daddy one night after dinner...two peas in a pod!

Ava's nurturing side has also been coming through...she loves wrapping Scooter up in Blankie and tucking them underneath the covers, while saying, "Sleepy...go sleepy!"  She makes sure that Puppy and GloWorm are all tucked in, too.  I'm also enjoying seeing her compassion for other people...anytime anyone sneezes, coughs, blows their nose, etc., she will say, "Bless you!"  It's never too early to start with manners, right?

Last night, I went out with some girlfriends for a girls night out in Minneapolis.  Grandma Deb and Grandpa Whitey took Ava for the evening, so Daddy could go out with the guys.  We all had a ton of fun - but losing that extra hour of sleep was rough...especially since we were up late (3am?)  I'm already looking forward to bed tonight. :)

In the bar at Ichiban (sushi/hibachi restaurant): Dee, Emilie, Nikki, and Angie

At The Shout House (a dueling piano bar)

This weekend just flew by...neither of us are ready to go back to work.  Although, Ava was asking about Debi this afternoon - clearly, she's ready to play with her pals at daycare!

That's so funny that she only moves your chair away from the table! Very cute photos of the tea party- looks like a good time! Isn't it fun to see them when they are so sweet and nurturing?
