Lookin' a little sad

Oh, how we love our little Ava Belle. She is full of so much personality and she is so fun. We just moved her into a big girl bed and she is doing great. She liked her crib a lot and didn't really want to give it up. She never tried climbing out of it (not because she can't but because she is kind of a chicken.) We moved her to a bed because we felt like she was ready to move on. She loves to be the center of attention. When we are not giving her our FULL attention she will do something "naughty" to get our attention. She usually grabs something she knows she is not supposed to have and runs straight to the closet with it. We know if we haven't heard or seen her for even a minute she is in the closet doing something she should be doing. There is really never a dull moment around here. Celeste gave Michael a biker dude mustache and Ava wanted one too. After she gave Ava a mustache she found Ava in the bathroom giving herself black lips with the paint pen.

Our first family picture
She is seriously a great baby. She is hardly ever fussy and sleeps all night. I think she has cried a total of two times at night since she was born. I know I should not get too excited because she is only a week old. I keep thinking its just fluke that she sleeps all night but I sure hope not. She is such a sweet little baby. I love having a little cuddly baby again and I am trying to soak up every second of her newborn stage because it goes by way too quickly.

Everyone seems to be curious about how Ava is handling having a new baby at her house. Anyone who knows Ava knows that she loves attention and to tell you the truth I was really worried about how she was going handle having someone to share the attention with. Let me tell you that she has been AWESOME! She is so gentle and loves her baby sister so much. She really does not get jealous at all unless her daddy is holding the baby. Daddy is Ava's best friend and nobody is allowed to touch him, including me.

I am always amazed by the things that come out of the mouth of my little 22 month old girl. She cracks me up. This last week she has really been hilarious. This morning Ava woke up right before Michael had to leave for work and I was still in bed. He brought her in my bed to snuggle and she looked at him and said, "Daddy goin' school?" He told her that he did have to go to school tonight and she said, "awww, cool dude." Then she said, "Daddy goin' work?" He told her yes he had to go to work. Ava said, "Ohhh, daddy home sick?" I guess I really need to watch what I say around her now. A lot of mornings I jokingly ask Michael if he just wants to stay home sick. He never plays hookie but I probably ask him this a few times a week to be funny. I never really thought that she was listening to me. I am not going to ask him that from now on. Though these last few weeks have been fun, it has not been all smooth sailing around here. I can defiantly see a new meaning to "terrible twos". She is not terrible, she just throws terrible little tantrums every now and then. She will lay on the ground kicking and screaming for a minute then be perfectly happy and laughing the next minute. 99% of her tantrums are about me telling her no candy. Last week she had nightmares almost every night. I would go get her out of her bed and she would tell me that she wanted out of there because there were scary butterflies in her bed. I would put her in my bed, go to the bathroom and come back to find her fast asleep hogging my spot in bed. One night she would not get in her bed and she wanted to sleep on the floor in her room with her dad on her big stuffed dog. Now she always asks if she can sleep on her dog.
Michael kept Ava busy during general conference this weekend by painting her toenails...he did a great job! Look at that bed head...I love it.
