I'm The Birthday Girl!

Today is my BIG number 1 Birthday! We have had a weekend loaded with fun and excitement. First, my family came to visit---all Grandparents, Great Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins! Then I had a super fun party on Saturday night. We topped it off with a Birthday breakfast this morning.
Mommy has lots to tell you but it make take several posts. Today is official nap day because the fun is coming to a halt. If you've ever read The Napping House...that's just what we're doing!
Just for fun, here is a picture of me the day I was born and another at my party. Stay tuned for more.....until then, Happy Birthday to me!

Dinner With Friends

Last night Mommy and Daddy had dinner with some friends who live in Texas. I got to meet Ethan and Madelyn. We had loads of fun while the grown ups talked.

Ava's New Spot

I love to crawl under my exersaucer and hide. Just when I think the coast is clear, Mommy snaps a picture of me!

Catch Me If You Can

Someone snuck into Mommy's kitchen and spread dish towels all over the floor. Why is the baby in the house always to blame? I have no idea who could have created such a mess!

I'm a Pepper

I'm a Pepper
You're a Pepper
We're a Pepper too!

Ava's version...
I'm a Pooper
You're a Pooper
We're a Pooper too

William picked this out for me. When I was just a wee little thing, he called me "Squirty Pants."

Papa's Tie

A&W Party

Last week Mommy and Daddy took me on another trip to Texas! We celebrated William's 5th Birthday! Mommy and I made him a special Kindergarten basket with all kinds of stuff 5 year olds need. I went to his swimming party and had a great time.

Since I am about to turn 1 , we also had an Ava and William party. We celebrated with A&W rootbeer floats--woo-hoo!!! No rootbeer for me and only a taste of ice cream...but fear not, I did get a biter biscuit---ughh!

Happy Birthday, William! I love you!

Lakeside Bath

Here I am on the 4th of July taking a dip in my fun little pool on the deck. Mommy decided to combine swim time with bath time so I got my hair washed while I played.

Pure Heaven

It doesn't get much better than a bite of a fresh peach and vanilla ice cream!

Daddy's Mean Trick

Daddy thinks Isabella and I don't know much about windows. We were enjoying our view of the deck until he taunted us with a Rice Krispy Treat. We were licking the window just hoping to get a taste of that ooey gooey treat! Mean Daddy!

Highchair History

I got to eat in two very special highchairs in just 1 week. In Texas, I ate in the chair Mommy used to use. We went to the lake for July Fourth and I ate in Daddy's old highchair. Who ever knew highchairs could be so fun!

Shoe Fitting

We made a stop to Stride Rite to have my first official shoe fitting. As you can see, I am a bit of a wiggle worm. I got my first pair of walking shoes. Mum, Sissy and William helped me find the show that fit just right. Thanks for a fun day, Mum! I love you!

A Date With Betsy

I love my pal, Betsy. The 3 of us girls had a lunch date together. What fun!

Checking Things Out

Last week I went to Texas to see Mum, Papa, Aunt Kristin, Uncle Craig, and William. I like to check things out at Mum's house. I explored the living room while Mommy and Mum had coffee. Daddy, Papa, and Craig went on a fishing expedition and the girls (plus William) had 3 whole days to play! Woo-Hoo!
