Ava and Parker

After Ava's birthday party we went to Meme and Ping's and Ava's bff Parker who is in her class at school and lives behind Meme and Ping came over to play. These 2 had the best time playing outside and watching movies together.  

4th Birthday Party at Woody's Jump and Play

Ava wanted her birthday party this year to be at the jumpy place. Since she wanted to invite friends this seemed like a much better idea than having a bunch of kids at the house. It was really easy for me and all we had to do was show up with a cake. She invited all her friends from school, dance class, and family friends.

I don't even think I could put into words how much this child has changed our lives in the past 4 years. She amazes us everyday. She is full of energy and is never still or calm. It's just not her style. She talks non-stop and I mean non-stop. She is 30 pounds and 41 inches tall. That is 75% for height and 20th for weight. So tall and skinny. She is so smart. I say that not because she is mine but because she really is. She can count to 100, knows all her letters and sounds, colors, shapes, and lots of random things she picks up from people around her. She is ready to read and is starting to put sounds together. She loves anything girly: princess, Barbies, babies, shiny, sparkly, or glittery. She loves dresses, shoes that make noise, and you hardly ever see her without her purse. She loves to be around her friends and family and is happiest when all those people she loves can be at the same place. 

4th Birthday

 I can't believe that our baby is 4. She is growing up so fast, I just want her to slow down!!! For her birthday she got to choose anywhere she wanted to eat and she chose her favorite place Gezzos. This girl loves their chips and cheese dip.
 Went by the bank to see Nana and get presents from her

Dinner with Meme

Met Meme at O'Charlies for dinner. Ava discovered a brownie with ice cream and I'm pretty sure it is her new favorite thing.

We are loving Barry Mango's the new yogurt place near the house. If we have a good week or just need a treat this is our new favorite place. Here we are on our day off of school before dance class. Ava's favorite is chocolate with sprinkles, gummies, and cherries. I like the fruity flavors.
