Another weekend gone..

We're having such a nice weekend. I wish I could put the next few hours in slow motion to make them last longer! Zach is out golfing, Ava is napping, and I'm catching just relaxing while the quiet lasts!

After Ava's xray on Wednesday, it was confirmed that her wrist is healing correctly and all looks good! She also got a pretty new cast! :) The pink looks so much better than the brown!

Zach and Ava didn't have school on Friday so they hung around the house most of the day. Ava helped her Daddy clean the house!

On our way to do some things Friday, evening, I tried to take a couple of pics of Ava with my phone. She can be so animated and funny sometimes!!

If you're friends with me on facebook, you've already seen the new skill she mastered on Friday:

We have been keeping doors in our house shut so Ava would be fairly contained. When one of us would go into our room for whatever reason, Ava is hot on our tails, and we could usually make it and get the door shut before she got there, bringing about some whining and banging on the door. Well, no more, my friends. Little miss finally got her little hands to open the doors.

Mission accomplished! Zach thought we were ok, because he thought she could only get open the doors that push open. She proved him wrong. He left yesterday morning and she apparently wanted to go because she walked over to the garage door and pulled it open! Luckily, our house came with it's own babyproofing - the doors lock and there are keys so if we really want to keep her out, we can just lock the doors.

And last but not least, Ava received a package in the mail yesterday and boy was she excited!! She thinks she is so important when we give her something like mail. This was from the sweet Jill & Sophie. I found Jill's blog a while back and after a short while, we came to realize we went to college together and had many, many exciting and interesting classes together as our majors were very similar! Such a small world! Anyway, these girls are way awesome and I can't wait to get my hands on her sweet Sophie soon! Absolutely precious! Anyway.. these sweet girls sent Miss Ava a birthday present (poor Jill ran into so many obstacles trying to get us this!).

Is this not so absolutely adorable?!??!?! I looooooooooooove this!

Jill's sweet, sweet Nana made this dress and it is perfect for Ava to wear to support our Razorbacks (who unfortunately were quite disappointing this weekend!)! Jill's sweet little Sophie has a matching dress so hopefully one day we can get those girls together to get pictures of them in their matching dresses.

It's so hard to get a good picture of Ava these days as she is always on the move. But just wanted to show ya Jill that she was just as happy with the package the dress came in - maybe you should have just sent that! ;) But not really because we looooooooooove the dress and thank you to you and Sophie and your sweet Nana for it!!!!!!!!!! (and yes everyone, I'm aware that my oven has a ton of little hand and finger prints all over it - I have tried to clean it but it's a losing battle.. just keepin' it real!)!

So tomorrow is back to work and back to reality. Boo! I wonder who we could talk to about making weekends 3 days instead of just 2? :) Hope everyone has a good week!


  1. It will be hard to keep her contained now, heehee!

    I love your statement...keepn' it real, I so agree with family blogs.

    Glad her wrist is healing correctly and I love the pink cast.

    Have a great week!

    Lisa :)

  2. Cannot believe she's opening doors already! I love the red dress - so cute!

  3. Awww... her new pink cast is cute. Josie and Violet have that same blue and brown outfit.

    I love the red dress!
