1st Princess!!!!

Ava was in her first pageant this past Saturday. It was a Sunburst Pageant, I competed in the same pageant was I was little!! My mom brought her just a church dress to compete in. There were 5 other babies in her category. Ava won 1st princess, which is runner up!! She did awesome. We will compete in state in Orlando at the end of May!! Here are some pictures from her big day!!

Ava is almost 8 months old!!

Well it has been a while since my last update!! We have had a very exciting month, I must say. Ava is almost crawling!! She is still rolling everywhere for now, but she is getting up on those knees rocking back and forth. This month we also starting holding our own bottle!! This is such a big thing as you moms out there know!! :) Our sleeping patterns have changed a little, and I am not happy about it. Since the child was born she has slept ALL night long for 10 to 12 hours. Well in this past month we have started waking up once a night between the hours of 1 and 3am!! Its no fun for mama!! I have to admit she does take her bottle quickly and goes right back to sleep, but I still don't like it! I hope we go back to sleeping all night soon. At our last doctors appoint we weighed in at 19.7 lbs and she is 27" long!! We are now wearing 12 month clothes!! We also started eating yogurt and ice cream as well has some crackers. We are also now using a high chair when we go out to eat!! OH, and Ava loves to dance!!! Its the cutest thing!!! Here are some pictures from this past month.. ENJOY!!!

I love the clothes basket pictures!!! This was from one of those nights that she got up and did not want to go back to sleep. So while I folded some clothes Ava hung out in the basket!! I had to take a pictures of it.. she is so stinkin' cute!!!

These are just from a random day!! She is my little flower child!!
