13 months

My baby turned 13 months today. She is seeming so big these days. She started to take lots of steps on Thanksgiving and she seems to be getting more confident because she is taking lots of steps since then. I don't think it will be too much longer until she is a full fledged walker. She has started to say "all done" and "uh oh". She waves bye bye. Although it's usually after the people that have been trying to get her to wave have already left. :) Ava loves to dance and climb! When she hears music she will shake that little bod. With Ava, no surface is safe. She will try to climb onto it. I love this little girl and the sweet outgoing person that she is becoming! 

So beautiful.

Silly girl!

This girl loves her puppy!

Today Lauren and the kiddos visited us at Nana's house. The kids had so much fun playing together.

Posing for the camera. Not sure if Ava's smiling or grimacing.

Now these are smiles!

This year we spent thanksgiving at my mom's house. We began the day by watching the parade. When Ava went down for her nap I helped mom with the cooking. Granny came over in the afternoon and we ate some yummy turkey! 

Ava and Daddy having a blast!

Anticipating turkey.

Having her first taste of turkey. She really liked it and all the special side dishes that comes with the holiday.


Little girl walking down the hallway (with some help). I love how chubby she looks in this picture!

Ava was very amused by this whistle. She kept handing it to us so we would blow into it.

Ava found the water fascinating.

Ava brushing her teeth. She eventually needed some help to actually clean her teeth.
