This week we have been fighting the stomach bug. And it has taken a toll on all of us. Ava and I were both sick at the beginning of this week. On Wednesday I began to feel better but Ava continued to have fever and tummy issues. She had vomited on her blanket on Tuesday night so we had washed it and laid it out to dry. Ava saw it drying on the table and she pulled it down and for the rest of the day it did not get out of her grasp.

Poor girlie. Throughout the day she would just lie her little head down on the ground.

Crawling with her blankie.

Sweet face!

Think she's ready for a nap yet?

Ava has handled being sick so well. She has been so brave. I love this girlie and I'm ready for her to be well again!

Ava's Wheels

What a face!!!!!! Love it!!!

Ava climbing on.

The only problem is that she is only able to drive in reverse...

Checking under the hood.

Distance makes the heart grow fonder

This weekend David and I went to Fort Worth and stayed at my mom's house for a vacation and my mom stayed at our house and watched Ava for us. It was a great weekend we had lots of fun and lots of relaxation but boy did I miss my girl! So when we got home I took lots of pics of her.

Waking up from her nap. I don't think she appreciates the flash in her face!

Waking up takes a while. 

She makes this face often. So it's dear to my heart.

Ava actually crawled onto my leg and pulled herself to standing then climbed onto the table! This girl is a climber! 

I love how clearly you can see her teeth. She now has 2 on the top as well!

This girl lights up for her Daddy!

Ava is dancing for Daddy.

And now she is telling me all about it!

Ava LOVES Buddy. Buddy does not reciprocate. :)

This summer was very difficult for me so I did not blog. Also our camera was having issues so I did not even take many pictures. So here is a recap of our summer via the pictures I took with my iPhone.

8 months!!!

Playing at Nana's house.

Gotta love a nakey babe.

Ava was a broccoli fanatic for a while.

We found her playing in the corner. She just looks so sweet. But now she tries to play with the lamp so we have to keep an eye on her when she's in that corner.

Airing out the diaper rash... See the cute buns?

 Ava playing on her "jungle gym". She loves to pull up on the table and walk with the chairs and she likes to climb over the bottoms of the chairs. She used to get herself high centered. But she would figure it out. :)

Nana visiting!

The olympics! Ava get excited this is what we will be doing for the next 2 weeks!

Lunch after church with the Perry's.

Fell asleep in the carseat on our way home from church.

This is one of Ava's favorite past times. She loves to play with Daddy's bookbag.

Another one of her favorite past times. Looking out the glass when the front door is open. It's adorable to see her standing there when you are walking up to the house.

Yes, I know, you can see my reflection. 

Waking from a nap. So pleasant.

Dinner time!!!

Playing dress up with Maya's wings before they left.

Too cool! 

At lunch with Mommy. Love my sweet girl.
