Ava's legs still hurt. Mostly at night and in the very early morning...she wakes up and says that her legs hurt. I'm trying not to be too concerned about it. I hope it's just growing pains. She complains that her legs and feet hurt when she's sitting in her carseat too. Who knows....maybe she just likes to be rubbed! 
Taking Ava out in public is interesting....She has no fear of strangers (is that good or bad?) and asks random people, "My name is Ava! What's your name?" She also loves to tell people, "I'm three in July!" and "I'm gonna have a yittle baby sister!"
The other day she was taking a bath and rubbing her legs with the scrubby thing....I asked her what she was doing. "Shaving my yegs!"  
Somewhere between 6 months pregnant and now, I started having some pains. Nowhere near as bad as I had with Ava though....only 3 months left! The baby has been jumping and rolling around like crazy the past 2 days.

I was remembering the days when Ava was just learning to talk...running around outside watching Daddy fly his airplane. She'd say, "ah, ah, barepane!!!" 

The daffodils are up about 10 inches....Ready for summer!

Daddy: "Ava! We should make health cookies tonight!"
Ava: "No! I want GOOD cookies!!!" 

Haha...she's got that right! 


Heidi and her girls came to see us this weekend. We had a great time chatting, shopping and just hanging out. We got ready to go to town on Saturday and the girls were upstairs playing. Ava yelled downstairs, "Mommy! I got my skirt all dirty!" I went upstairs to find both Ava and Elle in the bathtub, fully clothed, with all of the bath toys and the whole bottle of shampoo covering them, the toys and the tub! All I could do was laugh...and take pictures. :) We turned on the water to rinse everything off and all it did was make buckets of bubbles!! Oh, the adventures of 2 year olds!

Sometime in the past couple of weeks, Ava got her first 2 year molar!! Bottom/right. Maybe that would explain the crabbiness? And the brattiness? And the fit throwing, whining and crying? One down, three to go. Goody.

We took a little trip to Tillamook to see Grandma and Grandpa Waldo today. Grandpa bought an old VW Bug a couple of months ago and took Ava outside to see it. She came back into the house and I asked her if she saw Grandpa's new car.
Thinking that she would be totally amazed that a car would be called a bug I asked her, "Ava, did you know that Grandpa's car is called a Bug?"
"No Mom, it's a Bolkswagon! It's a Bolkswagon Bug and the pipe is broke!" (the muffler fell off)
So much for teaching her anything! She also informed us that the engine is in the trunk. :)

I passed the dreaded glucose test!! Yay!! My test was last Friday (the 3rd) and I got a call from the Dr. on Monday morning...boy what a relief that was!!
I'm 25 weeks along today and Donald and I have both SEEN the baby move! So exciting...We can't wait to meet this little person. I think we have a named picked already...that's a good feeling!
The realtor came yesterday and our house will go up for sale (for real) next Tuesday! It was a little disappointing because it should be listed for way less than we owe so we'll just have to wait and see what happens. So much is up in the air, it's hard to know what to do next!
Ava was inspecting her toenails the other day and said, "Mom! We need to cut my fingertoes!" She's taking after her dad...she's been chewing her fingernails and I even caught her chewing on her big toe!! 
Ava is excited to move to Texas...although I don't think she really "gets" it. She tells everyone, "When we move to Texas, I can ride a horsey and a school bus!!" 
Every time I put Ava to bed, we have a little routine. She climbs up and says "I wanna tell a short, short story and rub my feet with yotion." So that's what we do. :)
