Ava's teeth have been few and far in between but she finally is getting a mouth full. She got her first 2 teeth at 11 months old and didnt get another tooth until she was almost 15 months old. We have had a few tiring nights of crying and pain but she has been great at this pain and keeps playing through it all. She finally has 8 teeth and few more coming in. So excited for her.

Front Facing...

Yes! It finally happened. January 2nd Ava went front facing. At this time she weighed 18 lbs some odd ounces but Kenny allowed her to turn. It was so exciting.

Now she is an old pro at front facing. Looking out the windows and chatting with us during the ride. It is so much fun having her facing forward and able to see whats going on.

New Year! Come on 2011!

News Years was fun! We spent some time with Kenny's family, eating and playing games!

Ava reading with Uncle John

Then we went over to a friends house and Ava ran around and played until about 10 then we made our way home.

Family History!

The above picture was taken in 1984/1985 I was probably a year to a year a half old. Cute huh? Well those bibs that I am wearing were given to me by my Aunt Sandy. She bought them at a yard sale. Aunt Sandy is no longer with us but I think of her often. She was a special person, always with a smile on her face and she shared a birthday with my younger sister and cousin. And like my mamaw, when she hugged you, you could smell her scent on you for hours afterward.

Well this past Christmas, just a week ago, my Aunt Amy stated she had a gift for me. I was very surprised because I am not in the drawing for gifts and didnt expect anything. She handed me the box which I unwrapped and there they were. Those bibs. She explained to me that every grandchild in the family, 13 of us, had worn these bibs and she saved them for me for MY CHILD. I was the first one to wear them and she wanted to make sure my baby got to wear them. I could have cried, but there was way to many people around for that.

So on New Years Eve, a day that I had off and could see my baby girl in those bibs all day long, I put them on her. They fit perfectly!! She looked so cute in them. I dont think I can express in words how special this is to me but it is and I am without words. My daughter is wearing a piece of clothing that I have worn. She looks just as cute too huh?
