Who could resist those eyes?

Well, we did it! We survived our first Christmas as a family! I am still digesting (not literally) everything that went on. It all went so fast and before we knew it, we had celebrated Christmas 3 different times in two days. Amazingly enough, Ava wasn't worse for wear! She did really good with the difficult napping conditions, all of the different people and numerous costume changes.

Ava got lots of presents, but she enjoyed eating wrapping paper the most..typical 4 month old....geesh! We are still figuring out how to fit all the new toys and clothes in our house. As exciting as her 1st Chirstmas was, we cannot wait for the Christmases to come.

My Child ia a Genius!

That's right! I knew when she first smiled at 1 week and was holding up her head well before other babies her age that Ava was a prodigy. So here is the evidence. Ava was being a little fussy on Saturday (I know you are saying to yourself "This cannot be, Ava is always in a good mood" HA!) so Daddy took her upstairs to play the piano for her (this always seems to calm her down). It soon became obvious to Aaron the she desperately wanted to play herself. So he set her in front of the piano and ...well, you can see what happened.

Other excitement is our days....Ava has become really good at holding up her head and now really enjoys tummy time. She continues to tell stories to us constantly and has figured out how to 'yell'. She really loves bathtime (I would post a video, but apparently obscene videos are not acceptable). She is also getting a handle on the whole sleeping thing. She is starting to fall asleep on her own, although this usually involves a bit of crying. We go to the doctor on Friday for her 4 month check up and I am sure the doctor will be commenting on how perfect and overachieving she is. I will save the bragging though.
