This evening we spent some time out on the back porch and Ava started venturing out into the grass. She initially crawled to the edge of the porch and ran her little fingers through the blades. She then got the courage to crawl completely into the grass and Daddy decided to join her out there while Mommy took pictures.

Buddy was very excited that we decided to join him in his territory. He would not cooperate for a picture though!

This baby melts my heart!

Father's Day or Sick Day?

On Sunday Ava woke up sick with fever and she threw up. This was Ava's first time to be sick so naturally it broke my heart! The one good part of Ava being sick was that she was very snuggly. I loved giving her love and comfort. She is usually too busy to sit still for momma's snuggles. Until Sunday when she got sick Ava had been sleeping through the night for the previous 3 nights. But ever since she got sick she has not slept through the night since. :(

I felt bad for David because his girlie was sick on Father's Day but he said that he enjoyed snuggles with her.

Poor baby!

A couple of shots with Daddy for Father's Day.

Daddy is sad his baby is sick.

Friday night Date night!

On Friday Mom came in so David and I could go on a date! We had a great night. We went to dinner and we saw a movie. What to Expect When You're Expecting. It was a cute movie. I just enjoyed getting to go out with my guy!

Here are some pictures of the fun that Nana and Ava had.

Sweet girl.

After Janet and Jeannie headed back to Amarillo, David began to pack up to leave for a youth event in Waco. So Ava and I headed to Fort Worth to get some time with the Caivanos and Perrys.

We all went for a walk the evening that we had gotten there.

These are some cute kiddos!

Ava playing hard at Nana's!

The BEST part of the weekend was that Ava slept through the night for the first time!!!! She slept for like 11 hours without waking up! Hallelujah! I joked that we would move into Nana's house because we went back to Nana's later that week and she slept through the night again and this time she brought it home. Wahoo!!!

Around the house

Ava being adventurous and exploring the house!

My baby sitting like a big girl

Ava playing with Mommy and Daddy on the bed

These 3 pictures were taken on Sunday and boy was Sunday a busy day. It was senior sunday at church so after church we had the senior luncheon. After the luncheon we had a graduation party for one of the seniors. So after all that activity we had some down time at home. That night we went to a dance recital for a couple of 6th graders in the youth. Ava was enthralled with the lights and music. David and I had a great time watching the students and there were some really great dances that the older kids performed as well.

We always just tip this basket over and let Ava go to town playing with all the toys inside.

I tried to capture a picture of Ava looking out at the backyard because she does this often. She will stand and just gaze into the backyard.
