18 Month Pics

I had my good friend Talia take 18 month pics of Ava. She does an AMAZING job! If you haven't seen her work, you really should! She has a blog (http://www.taliadraperphotography.blogspot.com/ ) and a website (http://www.taliadraperphotography.com/ ). Talia was definately a trooper as Ava would NOT cooperate. She mostly just screamed. However, because Talia just is that good, we ended up getting some great shots! She litereally had a window of about 2 minutes where Ava was actually some-what cooperating. Thanks Talia! Enjoy~




I had to add these last few just to show you what she was like the majority of the time. The first one depicts most of our day!

You want me to do what?!

Did you say we're done?! YES!!!!!!!!

Mischief....

Yesterday Rhett and I were doing a little fall cleanup in our front yard. We planted a bunch of tulips and daffodils. Anytime we are outside it is a nightmare keeping Ava in our yard. She ALWAYS goes over to the next door neighbor's and knocks on their door. I have no idea why she has this obsession, but I can NEVER keep her in our yard. After MULTIPLE times of chasing her down we decided to let her play in dad's car for a couple minutes while we finished our project. Since the car was literally right next to us and all the doors were open we thought all was great. She played in there for several minutes making car noises and "driving" the car. A couple minutes went by and things were just far too quiet. So I asked Rhett to go check on her cuz I couldn't see her head poking above the steering wheel anymore. Rhett goes over and I hear "Oh AVA! What do you think you're doing little lady?!" Then he calls for me to come look at this. And this is what I saw....In the exact order I saw it....

I looked in the car.... Ava smiling and laughing.....
I thought "what's wrong with this? I don't see any problems."

Then she picked up the pens and pencils.

Then I looked at the stereo......
Evidently in those few short moments of quiet she had been stuffing all sorts of treasures into Rhett's tape deck! We found about 4 pens, 1 extra pen cap, a key chain card and a couple other things! I was dying laughing..... Rhett didn't think it was quite as funny since he was the one cleaning all the stuff out.
I decided to post this pic because it cracks me up. We decided to go for a walk the other evening. It was a little chilly outside, so we dressed Ava nicea nd warm. The reason it cracks me up is because I don't think ONE article of clothing on her matches another article. She looks like she came straight from the 80's!

The newest trick....

A couple weeks ago Ava found her old baby bouncer in the basement and HAD to have it brought upstairs. Here's what she enjoys doing the most in it....
