First Christmas

We celebrated Ava's first Christmas this year! It was so much fun! We had a blast with her opening presents and playing with her new toys. We went to our church's Christmas eve service the night before and it was awesome... and not just because my dad was the speaker that night. But he was excellent if i do say so!!!

We took pictures at the church and in front of our little tree.

The next day we went over to my parents house for Christmas around 9 in the morning to eat breakfast and open presents.

She had gingerbread waffles. She loved them... Did not leave a crum! 
Then we opened presents... 
She was a tad confused with the keys. She thought they were a phone. But she later got a phone and the confusion was gone... HA HA! So cute! 

Later on we went to a movie! We saw Sherlock Holmes. It was great! then we headed home and went to sleep. It was a great and busy day! So special!!! Merry Christmas baby girl!!!

Eleven Months...

Yes this little angel is 11 months old! She is getting so big! I can't believe in less than a month she is going to be 1!

Ava you are doing so many thing...

You are eating anything and everything... well not cheese, nuts, fish, or any of those things.
You drink mostly out of a sippy cup.
You love spinach, cheerios, chicken, noodles, and oranges and many others... You really are not picky when it comes to food
You are still on about three bottles a day.

Not much has changed in this area.
You go to sleep around nine.
You love to have a bottle before you brush your teeth.
You sleep about 12 hours everynight.
You take 1-2 naps a day ranging from 2 to 3 hours each.
When you wake up you call for momma.

You have been walking since 7 1/2 months.
You are really getting the hang of it now. You don't need my help and would walk everywhere if i would let you.
You walk from one end of the playroom to the other taking all kinds of toys back and forth. Some i am surprised you can lift. 


You say Momma, Dadda, Nona, Baba, Duck (comes out more like duuuu), YEA!, More, Dog.


You are signing please, thank you, more, eat, all gone, snack, and stars.

She is doing so many things. We are so amazed with our little girl! She is such a wonderful blessing.

Here are a few recent pictures of her...

We went to watch a movie over at Adam and Lindseys house. Well Lindsey and i had a momma babies night while Adam and Dez went to the Spurs game. We fed the children and then played. I only took pictures at dinner time... Not sure why! But they are so cute together! 
This is pictures of her getting into trouble as she does about everyday! She looks at me then does what she wants to do... Me saying Ava no the whole time.... Then she gets what she wants... hides it and looks at me like "I didn 't do that" Like i did not just see her!

Last week i was reading kelly's korner and she had a great ornament idea for gifts. So i went to hobby lobby and bought some and made gifts for everyone! I think they turned out so cute! Here are a few pictures. I also made ava hers for this year with the date on it. I think i will make her something like this every year and when she is older she can hang them on her tree! I have all my ornaments from when i was little hanging on our tree this year!

been too long... playing catch-up!

Wow i have not blogged in almost a month... ok maybe three weeks. But I am behind!

as you can see this is Ava's new favorite thing to do! She is so funny!

She copies us mostly! But she is much cuter when she does it!

She is always smiling! Especially if you point a camera at her or even a phone! Too funny!

She looks so cute in her winter hats and jackets! I love this picture!

And her new boots! $5 at old navy! Could not pass it up! And des was right there next to her just stepped away for the picture!

She is telling me NO NO NO! and shaking her finger at me!Another new thing she likes to do!

Another good example of when she gets a camera pointed at her! I just love it! What a character she is! 

She loves eating! And she is one messy eater! But she has a blast!!!!

she loves to wear momma's new glasses! She cried when i took them off! But i did not want them to mess with her eyes!

She stops everything when the backyardagains comes on the tv! She dances to the song!

She loves her new carseat!

This is how she fell asleep on Dads lap!
