Happy Mothers day!

I had such a wonderful 1st "official" Mothers day! We spent the weekend out and about. On Saturday we took advantage of the beautiful weather and went to go watch Cousin Lexie play in her soccer game and then went to the tulip fest. On Sunday we went to Glen Sanders for brunch. It was a wonderful weekend.

I am so amazed at how fast Ava is growing every day! She is such a smart observant little girl and I am so proud of her! It is funny to think of what a difference a year makes. Last year at this time I was pregnant and full of anticipation! This year I was able to hold my little girl and I was full of pride :)

Happy Monday!
 It was pretty tough getting up to go to work today. I had such a great weekend with Jeremy and Ava!
On Saturday we had a lazy morning together and then spent some time at my parents house. It is so fun to be around my family with Ava. My dad and her have such a cute relationship and it warms my heart to see the two of them together! My mom has so much fun teaching her things! I love to see how proud she is of her.

On Sunday we went for a long walk in the morning and then Jeremy's parents came to visit for a couple hours. It is so cute to see the way Ava acts around different people. Her Nana and Grandpa definitely got a kick out of her!

After the visit we did some shopping and then came home and took a quick bike ride and ate dinner together!
It was so nice to relax and spend time with each other! I cannot wait for summer!!! :)

For some reason one of my favorite things to see Ava do is to kick her little leg. She does this when she is happy! It is so cute to see her do this. It is usually her right leg and she always flexes her big toe when she does it. I don't know why but it is seriously one of my favorite things that she is doing right now. I am going to try to get a video of it for next week. :) It is the little things right?

Here are a few recent pictures of her for you to enjoy!

Clapping :)

My Happy Girl

Saying "no" because she knows she is not supposed to be climbing over the arm of the couch!

Looking up at the light (one of her favorite things right now)

Pointing (another favorite thing to do)

So excited!

A good shot of her teeth :)
