Goat Lickin' Good!

I'm not sure that Ava actually realized that the goat was trying to lick her, but her face sure has a goofy look on it. Right after this pic was taken, we witnessed why we should never let Ava touch farm animals....let's just say it is too gross to describe and Aaron and I left the barn in search of hand sanitizer. This pic was taken on our obligatory fall trip to Edward's Apple Orchard. We had a lot of fun and can't wait until Ava can actually taste a fresh apple cider donut herself!

Since I have last written we have officially given up on sleep training....I don't know who it was meant for, but definitely not for us (or at least not right now)! I mean....if something makes this little cutie into a monster, you'd stop whatever you were doing too.


Ava has officially found her hands and they have provided hours of chewing entertainment. She doesn't mind gagging herself from time to time, although it drives me nuts. I guess you have to pick your battles....

I still don't get the whole age thing, but as of Tuesday, Ava turned 12 weeks old (in my world, that is 3 months old, but in baby age time, she isn't 3 months old until Nov. 5.....who knows?). We are looking forward to the endless photo opportunities that Halloween will provide. I also realized that I was originally going to go back to work on Monday... I am soooooo glad that I decided to wait until Jan. I just couldn't imagine trying to function in the real world yet. I don't know how some moms do it!

Lizzie- she is so sweet! I love the goat pic! Hang in with the sleep training thing, I quit too the first time, I think i felt pressured from others- you will get to the point where you are ready and NEED to do it and then it will be best for you, listen to yoru instincts- of all the mamas in the world God gave Ava to YOU!
