All summer we had such fun with our friends and front yard. This is just a few photo's, but we pretty much spent Every weekend BBQ'ing and having a blast.
We are so blessed and i am thankful.
Check out the pictures!
How have i not logged in/blogged in 2 whole months? This is crazy to me. It's been such a crazy busy long summer. In the 2 + years i have had this blog, i have never gone this long.
I am going to try and recap the summer in a few short photo's and such. I hope hope hope to be back on the blog-wagon now and getting into a groove.
Today we had a small get together with our neighbor's, Coleen & Ryan.
We have realllly enjoyed our front yard this year, and have taken full advantage of it. :)
Please enjoy the pictures of the kids/our yard/the fire pit/and just us having fun this summer! :)
our front yard.
she is sitting so well!!
trying my 1st real food...
Ryan and Evan
Olivia, funny girl
nothing much, beyond hanging out in the front yard and having dinner outdoors.
the kids are enjoying the good ole 5$ sprinkler, ...
its 2 hot to do anything really. we usually come out around 3ish.
Whats been going on with Ava?
This month she has learned how to roll over. :) She can roll both ways, but is a pro at rolling from back to belly. Also, she is enjoying her Tummy time more and more each day.
Just in the last week or 2 she has started to sit up very well, with quite a bit of roll downs (falls). But, she is getting better and better each day.
We have started Eating Solids. :) Every night before bed, about 5/6pm we have a bit of veggie/fruit and some cereal mixed in. She can take down a few tablespoons, that's it. She enjoys it.
We also, just today ... started to learn about/try a Sippy cup!! She can do it, and we are happy, as it's HOT here and we need that option for water/cold liquids when out and about.
Ava is moving right along development wise IMO (in my opinion) because she has a 8 yr old sister and a 5 yr old brother who play with her like she is a real "baby alive" and i let them (under supervision).
I believe the reason Ava is sitting already and has much amazing hand/finger control is because of the Older Siblings. They love playing with her :).
Don't get me wrong, i play with Ava... but i think the influence of the older children has a GREAT advantage.
Even yesterday, Ava was in her 'saucer outside in the front yard watching the kids in the sprinkler, Squealing and wanting to join, @ 5 months.
I could see her wanting to 'play' too. :)
I am thankful for such Wonderful/Beautiful Children! :)
