First time meeting Great-Grandma D (Dedrickson).
First Parade - Declo Days.
I thought she'd be scared of the fire engine sirens but she seemed content! I just gave her a lollipop to hold and she was happy :)
First time being SO worn out that she fell asleep upright in my arms like this. Thanks to long, fun days with cousins!
Ava's first real fever since we've been home from the hospital was over the 4th of July. It got up to 102 :( She and I stayed in and slept all day. She really did sleep/nurse practically all day which was good because she was basically over it the next day!
Just after turning 7 months she started cutting her top two teeth. About a week ago she started getting one on each side of those two and another on the bottom = 7 teeth!
And no, I'm not feeding her Mike and Ikes. She likes to crinkle the bag :)
Our (somewhat consistent) Daily Routine
Sleep: Then it's off to bed...usually around 10 or 10:30. Now that we have no upstairs neighbors I am really trying to sleep train her this week. Night time has proved to be much better than naps - she only cries for like 30 seconds when I lay her down at night. She is looking so big in that crib!
She has seriously gained the most personality during this month, I think. She's started throwing her head back when she's mad and "yelling" instead of crying. But she's also gotten even more giggly and smiley and we just love her to pieces!
Although this has been the longest post ever, I do have to note that in this last month we had a cat. We had him for about 2 days, then went to Declo and came home to find that he had peed on our bed while we were gone (even though he was totally litter trained). Back to the neighbor he went :( Ava loved him though - farewell McGwire! Pin It
