Ava Claire's first trip to the park

Ava has been to the park many times in her stroller, but has never actually been on the swings....until today! She LOVED the swing and had a great time! This was a huge surprise to us because when she was small (ha) she would not swing in her house swing at all. She would only last about 15 seconds and then wanted out! So for her to like the swings at the park is a HUGE relief for us. She was just smiling and "talking" to us---and never took her eyes off daddy! It was precious.

Then one of our neighbors came and her son was swinging in front of Ava and she laughed out loud at him. It was her first loud, belly laugh! Matt and I both looked shocked when she did it. It was like "did that really just come from Ava??!!" She's been trying to laugh and will do small laughs at us when we do something to her....but this one was totally different! Such a sweet sound!!


  1. I can't believe my baby has her own blog ! What a wonderful way to see how she grows. Give her a kiss from mamaw.

  2. Ahhhhhhh I love this photo of her in the swing. She looks like she is having so much fun. Give her a kiss from her Aunt Sherry.
