Christmas 2008


It's hard to beliee that last Christmas we were just getting used to having baby Ava around and now she is crawling around and "talking" and loving Christmas time. We have spent our time traveling from Kokomo to Columbus and soon we will be back in Kokomo. We hope to spend at least one night relaxing and celebrating our 4 year anniversary. Nana will be on Ava duty for the night and it will be her first night away from us. Here are some pictures from our break so far. For all those we have been away from...we are looking forward to seeing you some day soon! Merry Christmas!

We went to a light show in Columbus and ava was having a great time.

Wow! All the changes a year can bring. Last Thanksgiving I was pregnant and waiting for our "baby girl starr" to arrive. Now she is here and quickly approaching 1 year old! I thought about blogging some more thoughts but Ava has been sick for 5 days and I am just too tired to think of awesome things. So here are some pictures since I haven't been so good at posting lately.

Biter Biscuit



I gave Ava a "biter biscuit" for the first time this week. I was at Kroger and saw them for the first time and they seemed like something that she would enjoy. I was right...she LOVED it. These are some pics I took after she devoured the first one...

Ava's new favorite thing is to stand up in her crib. She cries when we make her come out.
