How Ava Gets Our Attention

With all of the work going on upstairs in Ava's room, Mom and Dad were distracted with the project. We thought Ava was just playing with the pots and pans - little did we realize that Ava grabbed the potato buds box and emptied it into all of the pots and pans and then emptied them onto the floor!! She was really having a good time until Mom cleaned it up - What a mess!!!

Our Little Piano Player

These pictures are not staged! Ava has really taken to the piano this last week. She can open it up by herself to get at the keys (not something we are totally thrilled about) and this morning she pulled herself up on the piano bench.

We invested in this piano a few weeks ago and Kevin is working on sharpening his skills. It is going to be interesting to see if Ava continues to stay interested or not. Kevin has tried to show her how to play "chopsticks", but she won't let him play at the same time she is. It is pretty funny to see this little girl get so focused while she is playing!

STAY TUNED! Pictures of Ava's new room will be posted soon!

Ava in a Basket

Ava has taken to climbing in her toy box or laundry basket or anything big enough to fit her (kitchen cupboard with the pots and pans) and playing with toys - many times I know she can't be comfortable, but she seems to like having her own space. It is a good thing Kevin is almost finished with her room upstairs. It will be completed with carpet next Wednesday!

Here are some pictures of Ava at lunchtime yesterday. She was being really cute and kept signing for me to take more pictures!! What a silly girl!

Ava has been a bit cranky most days - the poor kid is breaking in a few more teeth.
