Smile Practice

Naomi has gotten to the stage where if you say "smile" or "cheese" you get this:
So the other night we were practicing. After I took the picture above I showed it to her (aren't digital cameras great!), and said "I can't see your eyes!" Which seemed to make sense to her. Then I took the 2 below.

Having a toddler is fun! :-)

The Eighth Month Update

It's hard to believe Ava's already 8 months old. It's sad in a way because my baby is not so babyish anymore. She loves to eat cheerios, sweet potatoes and acts very proud after drinking from the sippy cup all by herself! Her second tooth popped through 4/2 and her top front teeth make big white spots on her gums as they descend. That doesn't seem to phase her. She's happy as a clam most of the time and LOUD. Seriously ear piercing loud! (I don't know where she gets it from!) Ava loves to sit next to her toy basket and chew on toys a bang them together. In the last day or so she flops herself on to her stomach an does the land swim. She is a blessing and delight and we're so thankful that God has allowed us to raise and love her!

He is Risen! Happy Easter!

Where did they hide those Easter eggs???

The biggest egg Naomi "found" was on the cement. Ouch!

But she still managed to keep up with the hunt and found lots of eggs!

We had a lovely afternoon with the Smiths and the Ballards

Yes, Ava and I were there also :-)

All the Babies!

We're guessed that our mystery free chick is a Buff Orpington. She's very friendly!
