Hats and Shades!

Silly girl Ava decided to pull out all of her summer hats and try them all on.  It's very possible that her noggin grew a bit, and some of the hats might be a bit small.  And it's also very possible that she got a bit frustrated when they wouldn't go on her head all the way!  But...it was still fun to watch.  Here are just two of her hats on display...




With the onset of Spring (YES!!!!), the sunglasses have come out of hiding.  They even were requested to come to the potty with her the other day.  Good thing the Easter Bunny stocked up on several new pairs...!

Ava's been entertaining us quite a bit lately...that kid loves to sing and dance!  We sing the Do-Re-Mi song A LOT, as well as Farmer in the Dell.  And a random "Buckle Down" song that Ava came up with one day...I asked her daycare provider if she knew about it, and we *think* it's a song from a safety show they watched (seatbelts, etc...)  As I was describing the song to Debi, Ava zoomed by us and started singing it for us.  Super cute!

We're going to sign her up for a tumbling class this summer, as she wants to do somersaults and hand stands with me all the time.  And she really wants to dance, so we'll need to look into that at some point.

Even bigger news...she FINALLY went potty on the toilet at our house!  She does it several times a day at daycare, but wasn't so interested here.  So, we spent some quality time together in the bathroom this week, and she went.  Hooray!  And we had success again this morning.  We've had some failures, but that's ok.  I think it bothered her more than it did me - on Friday, she kept talking about pooping on Cinderella (her big girl underwear, of course.)  And she seemed distraught, so maybe that'll help the cause!

Our future rock star...





We had a nice run around the house, too - we were both breathing hard after this one!


I love the sheer joy on her face here!


Ava's with Grandma Deb and Grandpa Whitey until tomorrow at lunch, so we're going to have some adult time tonight.  I'm looking forward to getting out and having fun!

We bought a new shelf for all of her toys, which inspired a room makeover for Ava.  When she comes home tomorrow, it's going to be different!  We'll finally get her walls decorated, and her furniture moved around.  It's been the same since she came home from the hospital, so change is needed.  Looking forward to a fresh look!
