She has started to snort when she laughs. We think it is really funny and cute. I don't know where she got it from, but it is entertaining.
On Saturday Ava went to her 1st baby shower for her new friend Bryce who is due in October. It was fun and Ava had a good time ( unfortunately I forgot my camera so no pictures). Sunday was a lazy day so no news there.
We are still working on sitting up and hopfully being mobile soon!!!
Sorry not a very exciting post but it has been a busy week!!

In celebration of the 2008 Olympics and because we study Greece the 3rd grade had their 1st ever Olympic Games. We had 5 events shot put ( bean bag throw), sprint, distance race, jump rope, and 3 leg race. It was tons of fun and the kids loved it. Of the 5 events 4 gold medals were given to members of my class, so I was super excited!! We were the red team ( aka Embrey's Infernos named by my kids). For me not to be the least bit athletic I am very competetive so I was really proud that my class did well. We made torches from construction paper and tissue and made our own class flags. The Henry Herald came out and took pictures and I gave them a discription of the events so hopefully we will be seeing ourselves in the newspaper. Of course the kids loved the thought of being in the newspaper.

She can't sit or crawl yet but she can read!!! It is really amazing how much Ava loves books. She loves to look at the pictures and be read to. So far her favorite book is Fancy Nancy. It is about a little girl who loves fancy things and is a little diva, so we think it fits Ava Girl perfectly!!
Here is Ava Sunday afternoon just sitting around watching the Olympics and reading/eating her book. She is still not sitting alone but she does really good with the boppy. I was trying to get her to make noises by hitting her mouth. She likes that and it sounds like she is singing.

Ava has graduated from her baby tub to her big girl ducky tub. The first night we put her in the ducky tub she screamed her head off, but the last few times she has seemed to enjoy it. She is really enjoying sitting in the tub instead of laying down and playing with her new tub toys. She doesn't like to get water in her face which makes it really hard for me to wash her hair, but I am doing the best I can.

Ava with her Meme and Ping
Ava got a little ill because she was hungry and I didn't have a bottle. Not totally my fault. Lindsey picked her up from the sitter and kept her at Mom and Dad's house so I didn't pack her a bag because they have everything Ava needs at their house and I don't have to worry about bringing anything. So when we met at 6 to eat she hadn't eaten in awhile and I didn't bring her diaper bag and Lindsey didn't either. Long story short I had to run to Kroger and buy formula and problem solved!!
Ava and her Aunt Lindsey
I must say Aunt Lindsey has done a much better job with Ava than anyone expected ( sorry Lindsey), but you know we just weren't sure about Lindsey with a baby. She is not really a child person. But Lindsey really came through keeping Ava when I went back to work and when we need a sitter. Plus Ava loves her Aunt Lindsey and Uncle Grant.
PS: We went to La Parilla Wednesday night with Ava's Nana and Grandpa and Uncle Shane for Chris's birthday too but Chris wouldn't let me take a picture. He thinks I am getting carried away with the blog.... Pictures to come soon with Nana and Grandpa I promise!!

We are really working on sitting. Ava is very close, but really isn't all that interested. Notice Barley run up just to see what is going on. Barley and Ava are both starting to take a little more interest in each other. Ava likes to pull his hair and Bar likes to sniff her face. Sorry it is shakey I was trying to video it in one hand and keep Ava from falling with the other.

Uncle Mike saw this holding position on Dog the Bounty Hunter. Apparently babies like to be held like this. Ava did seem to like it or else she was just really confused....ummmmm I thought it was funny and blog worthy. Who knew Dog the Bounty Hunter had so much baby knowledge?
