Ava at 5 months!!

I can't believe how fast Ava is growing!! She is so big and makes us so happy :) She has been rolling from her back to her stomach on one side since she was 3.5 months old. It is very cute and all but the only problem was she couldn't roll back onto her back. Well about a week ago she discovered that she could roll to her back too!! Now she is all over the place. I can't leave the room for a minute or she is hitting her head on furniture because she rolls across the room!! She is such a happy baby...She loves to smile at her mom and dad and everyone tells us that her eyes just sparkle! She started eating solids a month ago and she doesn't seem to like very many things. She ate veggies just fine in the beginning and now she gags when they touch her tongue (with the exception of carrots). Her favorite thing in the world is bananas!! I can't wait to see how she grows in the next month!!

Me and My Family

This is the story of my happy family....

My husband, Christian works for Apex Service. He is the service manager and really enjoys his job (at least that is what he tells me!). He is such a great dad to our little girl, Ava. He gets so excited to come home to his family. He is also going to school at Salt Lake Community College. He will recieve his Bachelor's degree in Spring of '08 through Weber State University. This last spring he made a goal to run a 10k at the end of the summer and I am happy to say that he did it! The beginning of September he ran the Swiss Days 10k in Midway, UT!! Way to go sweety!
Ava is my sweet little girl! She was born on April 20, 2007 so that makes her 5 months old! She is the funniest little thing ever. She has the sweetest personality and is such a good baby. Right now she is rolling all over the place. She has found that if she keeps rolling it will get her somewhere beside where she is at! She does like to throw fits once in a while but that is only because her mom can get on her nerves!! Oops :) People say that when she cries it sounds muffled like a blanket is over her mouth...very quiet cry which is PERFECT!!! She is on a great schedule and is sleeping through the night...except for this week because of a nasty cold :(
As a family we have enjoyed many camping trips this year. We went to Strawberry Reservoir, Fish Lake and Escalante. Escalante was definately our favorite! We did lots of hikes and saw some amazing things! Southern Utah is beautiful. We have a lot of fun together and are looking forward to our many other adventures!
