Endless Love

Oh, so much love!  Love for Ava, love for Darla, love for food...love, love, love!  We took a brief moment on Valentine's Day to capture some of this love on film...

Mommy and Ava


Daddy and Ava


Ava and just one box of many candies that she got for Valentine's Day...


Ava and her deep love affair for odd colored yogurt.  Notice that it's about ready to drip off the spoon...


Enjoying a red velvet cupcake from the Valentine's Day party at daycare.  Even better - they sent one home for Mommy, too!


You can only guess what happened next to Saint Darla.


We were in southern MN this weekend, visiting our friends Darren, Tiffany, Isabel, and their newest addition, Evelyn!  I forgot how cuddly and snuggly new babies are (Evelyn is a little over a month old.)  Tiny little cries, fragile little fingers, and that wonderful baby smell...oh so cute!  I absolutely couldn't believe how much Evelyn looks like Isabel did when she was born - those two Winfield girls are gonna be heartbreakers! 

I was interested to see how Ava would do with such a small baby...and basically, she ignored her.  Every once in a while, she would stop over and look at her as I was holding her, but that was about it.  There is a baby at daycare, and Ava absolutely adores her.  She always wants to feed her, change her diaper, play with her, etc.  Maybe Ava was too distracted playing with Isabel to pay much attention to Evelyn?  The good thing is that Ava and Isabel did have a blast together - and they spent lots of quality time in the bathroom.  Perhaps Isabel's success with potty training will get Ava interested again...

Oh yes, strange colored yogurt... BUT, they make a "Cars" yogurt with Lightining McQueen on it and it's called Vroom-Vroom Vanilla, so that's been nice!

Did you get a haircut?
