Ava's Birthday!

Ava turned two on Thursday the 16th. I can't believe that it has already been 2 years. She is the best little girl, except for the occasional "terrible two tantrums." Her favorite things right now are:

Backyardigans, Pablo in particular
Playing with her babies
Playing with her kitchen
Singing ABC's and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Singing primary songs, Once There was A Snowman and Sunbeam
Talking to daddy on the phone
Saying cheese for pictures
She loves when her mommy picks her up from her babysitters
Colring with chalk and crayons
Reading books
Wearing necklaces

She also says too many words to type. She can tell me almost anything that she wants. Sometimes she has a meltdown if I can't understand what she wants, but for the most part she gets her point across. She is very smart and is such a happy little girl. We love her so much and can't imagine our lives without her.

These are pictures of the first couple days of her life. It makes me so sad that she is such a big girl now.

Here are some pictures of her birthday. Nate's mom, me and my sister Holly took her to Chuck E. Cheese to just have a small celebration for her. She will have a party when Nate comes into town next. She had a blast. She got some necklaces and Quiet Book from Grandma and Papa England, and a tricycle and some clothes from Nana. Nate and I got her a Fisher Price Doll playset that is so cute and she plays with it all the time. She is a really good mommy to her baby dolls.

3rd Utah trip in 4 weeks...

Last weekend we went up to Utah again, to do our IUI procedure. We ended up only having one follicle that was perfectly sized. So we will see if I get pregnant this month.

While I was there I got to stay with my sister and we went to the Corn Bellies at Thanksgiving Point. We had a fun time there despite the wind and cold. Ava got to play in te bounce house and we did the Kiddie Corn Maze there. The next night was my sister Heather's birthday. We went to Boondock'sand had some fun, again despite the on coming snow later that evening. They even let me take Ava on the bumper boats and the go karts, even though the sign said she was too little. She loved it so much, she screamed when we took her off of the car. Anyways... all in all we had a pretty eventful weekend with going to the doctors office everyday of my visit and all of the other activities that we did that weekend. It was really good to see Nate again, but I am in no hurry to go back to Utah...until Thanksgiving.

Oh yeah and the first picture just makes me laugh, I took it at the petting zoo at Thanksgiving Point.

Just some more random pictures...

We took Ava to Peter Piper Pizza the day before Nate moved. She had a lot of fun.

A couple weeks ago Ava and I went to Utah to visit daddy. We drove up to Flaming Gorge. It was beautiful. The last picture is of the Dam, and Ava decided that she wanted climb the fence.

This is Ava's crazy baby face.

Ava's new hairdo's, I have been trying to be more creative with her wild hair. If I don't do it, it looks so crazy.

We went to our cabin over Labor Day weekend. Ava had so much fun running around with the cousins. I almost couldn't handle it because she was always dirty.
