Mini-Dee (finally!)

Every day I'm more and more convinced that Ava could very well be my child, and not just a mini-Scott.  We gave her a few peanut butter M&Ms for a treat, and look at that - she created a nice pattern with the colors.  She didn't have any help doing this - and look at the proud expression on her face.  OCD?  Yeah, I'll claim that part of her!

She was bored one afternoon, and decided that Puppy should learn how to play the drums.  Lucky us.  In fact, she just saw this picture, so she pulled out all of the pots again, and Puppy - looks like we're going to experience this once more!

Yesterday, we all headed down south to visit our friends Darren, Tiffany, Isabel, and Evelyn.  Ava had been talking about this visit for weeks, so when she sprung a fever on us Friday afternoon, we weren't sure if we were still going to be able to go.  Luckily, we got the fever under control...whew! 

Tiff and I had a mini-spa day in Rochester, while the daddies hung out with the 3 little girls.  It's so much fun to watch Isabel and Ava together - until they started hitting each other while watching "Tangled".  Then, the moms had to step in and set things straight!  Ava was already talking about seeing them again as we came back home this morning.  I only wish we lived closer!

Fun in the bath - LOTS of splashing and giggling!

Last weekend, Grandma Deb and Grandpa Whitey took Ava to her first movie at a theater - Hop!  She did great for the first 45 minutes or so, and then she didn't want to sit still.  But, it sounds like they stuck it out and had a good afternoon!

Watching cartoons with Grandpa - this is so cute!

Enjoying the sunny weather...before the evil snow came back later this week.

Potty training is still being worked on...I think she realizes that if she wears a diaper, she doesn't have to stop playing when she needs to go.  Hm.  But, at the same time, she's been telling us when she needs to go, and then she really does go.  I think this requires massive patience on everyone's we'll just keep on trying!

I love that she is wearing her sunglasses while playing the drums. So cute. And I'm pretty sure there is no denying that she is yours. She looks IDENTICAL to both you and your mom!!! Such a cutie!
