Ava finally started walking yesterday. She made it about 5 feet until she realized what she was doing and then she sat down very carefully. She needs coaching and encouragement, but she's doing it. It is so cute to see her do it!
Sorry I haven't been able to post, but being back at school has really zapped me by the end of the day and I am just pooped. Our freshmen started today and all grades start on Monday, so let the games begin! How far until Fall Break? ;)
Also, Ava has kept us super busy this week. She has been sick with a little summer cold or bug and it has just worn us out. Nana had to take her on Wednesday to the Dr. for a cough and runny nose. It was the first time she's been to the Dr. without me, but there's just no getting out of inservice! He said she had a croupy cough and conjunctivitis in her eye, so she got a shot and some eye drops. You would think we were killing her trying to get those eye drops in. Needless to say most nights have been spent with a crying baby who doesn't want to be held, but doesn't want to not be held. It has really tried our patience, but it is starting to pass.
Anyway, as promised, here are pics of mashed potato face! And note that I didn't strategically place them there. Ava has gotten to where is she doesn't want a bite, she will sometimes knock your hand away. This is one of those times...
