One night last week, Rob and I were surprised to find Ava looking so old, standing up by herself at the kitchen sink! Even more funny was that Zoie was in the baby toy. This was a complete role reversal...I couldn't help but grab the camera to capture the moment!
The last couple of weeks really have been big for Ava! She started to crawl the "regular way", got her first tooth (and is working on her second), and can pull herself up to stand next to anything! She loves to get in our cupboards, she claps and waves and is just growing up too fast!
I love Halloween! I think I must get it from my mom, she goes all out decorating and it happens to be her Birthday! I have had a lot of fun crafting with my mom and some friends lately. I took some pictures of some of the fun things we have done. Lot's of glitter... it is becoming an obsession! Our silhouettes (at the top of our blog) are new for Halloween too! It has been a lot of fun and I think Zoie loves it too!
So, while I am at it I may as well keep adding. We went to the pumpkin patch last week with Zoie's preschool. Mimi came along which was such a big help, couldn't have survived without her! We all had such a great time. We saw the pig race, road the train, took the tractor to choose our pumpkins, ate yummy treats, and slid down the slides...now who wouldn't love that? We love going to get us in the Halloween mode!
So, this was the perfect picture to get me back in the blogging spirit! My mom took family pictures for us tonight and captured this great image! I love this picture because Ava adores her big sis Zoie and I think the picture totally says it all. Everything Zoie does, Ava loves! No, seriously everything!
