Out of the mouth of babes

I looked back and realized it’s been a little while since I did post about what Ava is up to so I figured I should catch up.

She is talking so much lately. She says words we didn’t even know she knew.

Her latest phrase (that I assume she picked up at school): Stop it!

Examples of use we’ve heard in the past few days:

Zach cleaning her tray after dinner and trying to take her cup. Ava’s response: “Stop it. Stop it. I need my water!”

Upon seeing me pick up her toys before we left Grandma’s: “STOP it, Mama!”

Another cute thing I don’t want to forget- My mom has been cleaning out her attic and sorting through all of our old toys and keepsakes. She’s giving us the toys that were ours, and holding on to the ones that we all played with for grandkids. When she picked up Ava yesterday, Ava was beyond excited to see “new” toys. She told me about them immediately and when we left we had this conversation:

A: What Homma (grandma) doin?

S: She’s going to stay at her house.

A: She play my new toys?

S: Well, probably not, but maybe.

A: (in a really sad voice) Oh…..

I love that she thinks her grandma plays with her toys when she isn’t there. Beyond precious! She also woke up this morning talking about “Ava’s new toys”. Couldn’t get them out of her head!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, we have a big development here! Ava started wearing big girl panties Saturday and has been doing GREAT! We’ve tried before with no success and when we put them on this past weekend, it just clicked! She’s doing SO good and we’ e so proud of her! We went and picked out more panties and she is very proud of her “Tink-bell” panties! She’ll even show you! :) Tuesday she wore them to school for the first time and was successful! She’s really only had a handful of accidents and lots of times she realizes she’s about to go and stops and runs to the potty! We’re not having much success with #2 yet but I figure it won’t be too long! YAY AVA!!!!!!IMG_2353

And a few pictures I haven’t been great at posting!
