Week 3 (Jan. 15-21, 2011)

Jan. 15th
Today was Ava's Birthday! Happy Birthday baby girl

Jan. 16th
The weather was pretty nice today so we got to enjoy some much needed outside time.

Jan. 17th
I luuuuvvv baby jeans!

Jan. 18th
I spent most of the day cleaning. Ava helped me, of course. While she was helping me, she found one of our bud vases. I let her pick some flowers out at the store and this is one of the ones she chose.

Jan. 19th
LOL! I guess Ava was cooking Chinese food! :)

Jan. 20th
I decided to wash blanket (Ava's lovey) today. This never goes well so I have two choices: 1. Leave Ava standing in front of the washer and dryer bawling her eyes out until it is finished OR 2. Distract, distract, distract! We did so many random activities while blanket got clean, but this was her favorite. We built a tunnel with some mega blocks and made a ramp out of a tupperware lid. Then we rolled all of her big, bangle bracelets down the ramp. Here's one in action!

Jan. 21st
Ava's party is tomorrow. We got her a few gifts for her real birthday and a few for her party. Ugh, I hate wrapping gifts!


  1. Cooking chinese food. Hahaha. Happy Birthday, Ava!

  2. These are all great. I love days 17 & 18. Wonderful photos! Thanks for linking up.

  3. Really really good photos! Your Day 19 (I think) with the chinese food made me laugh out loud! haha!

  4. I love outside play too! Nap time is much better with outside play :) I think baby jeans are great too.

  5. Ok, first... I have to say that I absolutely LOVE BABY JEANS, especially baby jeans with socks on. That picture is one I would easily hang on my wall. Every photo you took made me smile - Chinese food! Ha!

    The day outside - Ava's little shirt just POPS and I love it. Also, your gerber daisy is gorgeous. Happy Birthday Ava!!

    Stopping by from Project 365!

  6. Sounds like a fun week! I love the baby jeans shot and that's a really cute photo of her on the slide. Hope she has a wonderful party!

  7. Aww! Happy birthday to Ava and I LOVE that flower shot!

  8. "Chinese food" made me laugh. Fun pics!

  9. What a great week you had. I was cracking up at the lengths we go to in order to wash the lovies. I had to do the same thing when my boys were younger. I would usually try to sneak the blankie in the wash and then head out of the house for errands. Getting it dry was a challenge! :D

  10. Great pics! Love the "chinese food" one! Too funny! Happy birthday to your little girl!

  11. Great pictures. I love baby jeans too!

  12. oh lovely flower! Great shots!

  13. Hey! Where in Germany are you all at? How long have you been over here? We are in a small base, but the closest 'big' one is Grafenwoehr. Your little girl is so cute! And I love your pics- I'd tell you which my favorites are, but I really like them all! Happy Birthday to your little one!

  14. Thank you, everyone, for all the lovely comments! Hopefully I have been to or will be getting to your pages soon. What I have seen so far this week is amazing! :) Katherine: We are stationed at Ramstein AFB it's near Kaiserslautern. Have you heard of it? How do you like it out here? We have been here since May 2009

  15. How fun! LOVE the baby jeans & flower pic :)
