Ava went to her 8th track meet this week. I had 2 jumpers get through both long and triple jump. The best part of the day was picking out Ava's outfit she was going to wear. It was the first 80 degree day and I had 30 brand new outfits to choose from. She ended up wearing a little pink fishy outfit with a matching sun hat. The sun hat is still a little big, so it kept falling over her eyes. Papa came with us to hang out with Ava while I coached and Matt helped rake the pits. I was a little worried about the temperature being so hot but Ava was fine. We kept her out of the sun as much as possible and she hung out in her stroller most of the day. She has the most adorable cry/whine when she gets tired. It is like she is trying to say... "I am so tired, just hold me please."
We are going to Jeff City this weekend and of course Ava will make her first State Track and Field Appearance. Only 14 more years until she can compete at the meet! My last day of school is tomorrow and I could not be more happy. I am so excited to spend the next 3 months as a stay at home mom. This week is super busy and we will return only to get ready to go on vacation.
Ava has had a few milestone this past week... she now sits in her bumbo and watches tv. She was in it for over a half an hour the other night. She is also beginning to place her hand on her bottle. Matt and I keep removing it for her. She sometimes just puts it up there to try and get her hand in her mouth while drinking her bottle. She loves her hand. She will not suck her thumb or fingers, she makes a fist and sticks the whole thing in. Ava also continues to love her baths. We had to sit her baby tub in the big bathtub because she splashes so much water all over. She is getting so big so fast. Stay little, stay little, stay little!
