Ava smiled her first real smile the other day! July 16 was the big day. She gave daddy a big toothless grin when she saw him. Best moment ever!

This weekend we visited grandpa and grandma in Midland. Ava slept through most of the visit, except when she was screaming at my mom. :)

Big Day

Val had her baby today! Alyssa Marie was born today at 1:39 AM, weighing in at 8 lbs 5 ounces and 19 inches long. She is a beauty! Congrats to Josh and Val!

In other news Avalyn has stopped sleeping in her bassinet because she hates it! So I started looking into other options. These options are: A) buying a new bassinet, which would be a co-sleeping one if I have to get one, or; B) getting the old cradle from mom and dad. Probably going to choose the latter.

However, while I was looking into option A I saw that there's a recall on the bassinet that Ava currently sleeps in. My guess is that she heard about the recall before me and was telling me, in her own way, that it wasn't safe to sleep there anymore. What a smart kid!

Independence Day!

Spent the day at the cottage today. Then got to watch fireworks in Traverse. Very tired, but very fun. :)
