Sweet Ava Claire


I love Wednesday afternoons because I get to spend time with my sweet grandgirl before church.  Last night Ava was having so much fun as she is wanting to walk so bad.  She looks a bit like a drunken sailor as we try to help her take a few steps – her legs struggle to make it all work.   But her determination is strong and it won’t be long before we can’t keep up with her.  I got out Tyler’s Christmas present that he wasn’t able to take to Peru with him and converted it from a riding toy to a walker.  Ava loved it!  And she especially loved being clapped for by her adoring audience!  Tell me, is there anything sweeter in the whole wide world than a baby in a diaper and t-shirt accessorized by sparkling beads? 

Jess and I decided to get a video of the whole thing.  I don’t remember Jess laying on her side to take this video, but I’m not sure how else it turned out sideways!


And this sideways video shows her excellent verbal skills.


Thanks for indulging this grandmother.  And I hope your neck doesn’t hurt too bad!

Oh my goodness how cute is that?? And I will bet Tyler can watch it and see his cousin. I hope he doesn't realize she is playing with his toys. Yikes!!

Oh I love her beads, every girl should have some! So adorable and I know you love having her close by so you can eat her up.
