Ava and Jack checking out her gifts in the morning. She slept in until 10:30 on her birthday.
At Grammy's house in the car Grammy and Papi gave her.

This is her at 11:00 that night. To excited to sleep.

I am so behind in blogging, frankly, I am overwhelmed. Every time I sit down to blog I struggle with where to start. Do I keep up my number count? Do I start over? I have pictures, but i've lost my blogging umph. huh so I here I go, starting over. No more numbers, just blogging. Maybe next year i'll try again. We'll see. So what can I say???? Ava and Devin had their birthday on April 2nd. Since Ava loves to dip everything she eats, we had a dip party. I made spinach artichoke dip, orange fluffy dip, carmel apple dip, roasted red pepper dip ( that was by far everyones favorite) dill dip and some sweet and sour meatballs just for the fun of it. We also had a jump house and a cupcake decorating station. Believe it or not Ava had fun. Gasp! I know. She is so hard to please and she hates being the center of attention, but she actually enjoyed her party. She thanked everyone as she was tearing into her gifts, she was polite and had fun. Devin behave himself to, but he usually does, usually.

So some fun facts about 3 year old Ava
* she's not potty trained. Go ahead and judge. She's the baby and i've already proved my potty training skills with the last three so who cares right?
* She is so girly. She loves everything princess. She has so many cute clothes, but she only wears princess dresses.
*she loves being a girl.
* She loves pink and purple anything.
*She can count really high. I didn't teach her that because I want her to be a baby
*She knows the name of every princess and who there prince is and what movie they are in. I did teach her that
* She loves Dora the Explorer (yuck)
*She knows all her colors
*She is sooo good on a razor scooter. She flies through the house.
*She is a caregiver. Whenever anyone is hurt she is the first one there with a bandaid or icepack or their favorite blanket.
*She loves coming with me to volunteer at Jack's kindergarten class. I really think she thinks she's older than the kindergartners.
I can go on and on. She is so sweet and I feel so blessed everday to have her.
