Its Been A Big Week…

…for Ava-Grace. Not only did she cut her two front teeth – and go figure how weird is this, she cut a set of eye teeth first and has been walking around for the past month with a passion gap and vampire fangs!- but she also started walking in earnest. She took her first two unaided steps a couple of weeks ago. She’s still using crawling as her preferred mode of transport but now, when she stands up, she’ll take 5 or 6 unaided steps so I’m quite sure the paw-paw is about to hit the fan for us. Although, she really is a busy little girl already, giving us heart attacks and climbing up on everything, the couches, chairs, tables, whatever is bigger than she is has got to be climbed on and treated like a jungle gym!

She also went to the zoo for the very first time on Sunday and she loved it! She was most excited by the chimps and through a huge tantrum when we dragged her away. But her most favorite by far where the hippo’s. The one hippo put on a huge show for us with lots of mouth stretching and trumpeting and snorting and this got her really excited.

She really is a fully fledged toddler and there no hint left of the little baby she wants was, its sad in a way, how quickly they grow up.

Ava-Grace was quite taken with the ellies!

Look Dada... Ellies!

    Well thank heavens one set of eye teeth are out ( and obviously with very little discomfort)! Shew but she has been a busy little lady. I do love being the mom of a toddler. AS much as I liked the tiny baby phase, I’m really enjoying the interaction and especially the voluntary hugs and kisses that come with the toddler phase.

      Yes, can you believe it, a set of eye teeth cut without so much as a symptom, I just happened to notice something white in her top gums the one morning about a month ago and there they were, as sharp as sharp can be, now they never hurt her coming out I will never know, or perhaps it was the teething beads?

    Sweet man! Has she been to the bird show at Monte yet? I’m sure that would be a hit too.
