A girl and her blankie...



Ava has taken a liking to this cute little mouse blankie that I picked up for her when I was pregnant. She has been holding on to it for the past couple of days like it's her baby...so cute.

Isn't she ADORABLE?!?!?! Sorry the pics are not the greatest quality! She loved playing dress up in her tutu!

4 months old! Update on this little cutie patootie...

1. I'm rolling from front to back and back to front!
2. I'm starting to reach for objects that are in front of me...my grasper/pincher fingers are very VERY strong (sometimes I pinch mommy and daddy on accident :)
3. I am starting to learn the art of giggling...especially when mommy and daddy tickle me!
4. I LOVE TO SMILE!
5. No tooth yet, but I am a drool making factory. It can make me pretty fussy! Good thing mom keeps teething tablets, Tylenol, and teething rings close by...and of course a lot of hugs and lovin'
6. Mommy had to start supplementing formula into my feedings along with breast milk because she wasn't producing enough and I lost a little weight but I am now getting my belly full and regaining what I lost and more! Thanks Mom!
7. I'm still eating every 3-4 hours and I take at least 2-3 naps that are about a hour long...if Mom is lucky ;)
8. Since I was loosing weight Mommy and Daddy had to start waking me up a few times in the middle of the night to feed to make sure I was getting what I needed. I guess sleeping 12 hours straight was a little too much for my little body that's growing. I now go to bed at 8:30pm, wake up at 2:00am to eat and then again at 7:30am to start my day....but just between you and me I like to wake up around 6:30am to have mommy or daddy come and get me so I can snuggle in bed with them! Works EVERY TIME!
9. I have discovered my two big furry golden retrievers that also share my space with me....Mac loves to hang out with me and I'm starting to get used to him too...He lets me pull on him and use him as a play mat and he doesn't mind at all!
10. I love to be outdoors, go on walks and run errands with mom...though mommy is overcautious about me getting sick with the weather change and swine flu going around so we try to play mostly indoors and away from a lot of crowds.
11. I think it's fun to "talk" to mom and dad! I'm pretty good at mimicking all of mom and dads funny noises!
12. Mommy sings to me all the time and I love it! My favorite songs are "You are my Sunshine" "Itsy bitsy spider", and "Sweet Sweet Baby"
13. Oh and I'm sure you want to know how big I am....12lb 10oz and 25 inches long! I'm pretty long like my mom!

Straight from Momma's heart....Ava's first Halloween costume!



I'm absolutely in LOVE with tutu's! They are so much fun and I can already picture little Ava wanting to dress up in one everyday when she is older! Well we have been thinking about what to dress her up in for Halloween and we decided it was only fitting for her to be a lady bug since we call her "Bug" or "Buggie". Soooo I put two and two together and decided to make her own handmade, straight from Momma's heart, Lady Bug tutu costume! And I have to brag on myself just a little bit because I think it looks pretty darn SPECTACULAR!! I loved this project! I can see myself making many more in the future...especially when she starts to walk. I also bought her some black cotton tights, a black long sleeved onesie ( I plan on using rhinestones to glue the name "BUG" on the shirt), and I'm going to make a headband with antenna's. YEA!!

Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.
