Goodbye Old Friend


This week Ava said goodbye to her best friend and most faithful companion, her binky. They had been together since the beginning, spending countless hours together(not actually the same one)but after a 2 year relationship it was time to part ways.

She threw her 'friend' in the trash and didn't look back! Well she did look back a few hours later when it was time for bed, but everyone knows once something is in the trash isn't gone for good! Although they had a very serious relationship, Ava did not follow standard breakup rules of no new relationships for one month for every year you where together. Ava is now sleeping peacefully with 3 baby dolls, 2stuffed dogs, and one random Pooh bear each night! That may sound like alot for one crib, but I'm sure some of them are just rebounders.

Ava is Two!

If you ask her she will tell you, Ava is twoooo! Man time does fly. I still replay the day she was born in my head like it was yesterday. I guess it is easy since I have 36 hours of labor to reflect upon.

I wouldn't change a second of the past 2 years. This last year Bill and I have seen her transform from a helpless baby to a bossy, independent little girl, who never wants to leave the house without the proper accessories.

We cherish each moment of Ava's development even if she has mood swings of 30 women with PMS, thinks her sister is a rag doll, or on occassion poops in the tub, its all good...

When they fall we.... Laugh?

I don't know why but when I catch Ava falling on video both Bill and I find it completely hysterical. I am pretty sure it doesn't qualify as child abuse if she fall on her own accord. Don't judge me, just watch the video. video

Beach Day

It is kind of embarassing but Bill and I haven't been to the beach since March. Everytime we go we make the same vow to go more often. You certainly take it for granted when its only a few miles away.

Ava wasn't much for the ocean during out last visit to the beach, however that all changed today. At first she was a little unsure of this vast, rushing body of water, but one waved knocked her downs as to say, "I'm water that will play with you," and she was hooked.

I hope you like our little video of the Ava vs. the Atlantic.

The Big 3-----0!!!


I can't believe it happened to me, but yes folks 2008-1978 = 30 years. Sad but true. Thankfully, I wasn't pregnant and could drown my sorrows in a few Miller Lites to pass the day. As you can see by my glassy eyes.
