#1. Ava learned to clap yesterday (see cute video on previous post). She's also learning to stand on her own this week...
...AND getting two of her first teeth on the bottom (I keep trying to get pictures but her tongue or lips get in the way), so I'll attach this video of how "happy" she's been through this whole process... NOT! Teething has turned my usually happy baby into THIS...
...now you get the picture!
#2. She's also had WICKED bad separation anxiety and trouble going to sleep at night (see above video again), so it's been fun. I keep wondering if God is preparing me for our next child and if the next one will be much different than Ava. We'll see!
#3. I'm now 11 1/2 weeks along with Baby #2 and he/she looks something like:
and is the size of... a lime!
His friend "Bob" came down last weekend to lend a hand.
Thanks "Uncle Bob"!
Before (see the one on the left. Can't even fit it in the photo)
If you're looking for a good tree guy, call Nick!
#6 Shaun's Mum & sister Dana came to visit after a beach day last night and stayed over. Great time! Ava had so much fun she didn't want to go to bed!
No matter how tired she was...
#7. My dear mother has been visiting a LOT bringing food (she's a terrific cook) and eager to houseclean. Am I lucky or WHAT? I'm not trying to brag, just trying to give her the props she deserves.
That may not seem like much to anyone else, but when the last load was done, I wanted to throw a party!
Now the laundry's done but my bedroom looks like this... times like 20.
