Snails gross me out and we have tons of them in our yard so natually Ava has become obsessed. She wanted these to live inside with us as pets because she doesn't think the baby can survive on its own. She also insisted on these photos.

Our Little Storyteller

"The Superheroes Save the Day"

"One day Ava saw something and it was smoke and Ava knew what that meant, fire. Ava knew superheroes that could save the day. The superheroes came right away. Ava knew how to call them. Ava had something special they had gave her. And then Ava pulled out of her pocket a heart that was glowing with shimmering light.

Then Ava looked into the heart and a big smile showed on her face. And then Ava, Luso, Dylan, and Finley saw something glowing and it was the superheroes. They flew and said what's your problem. We said, look at that big volcano. The superheroes flew and said we'll be right back Ava. Dylan, Luso, and Finley said, What are they doing? Ava said they are probably getting a hose. They came back with a hose and flew to the volcano. Ava, Dylan, Luso, and Finley turned the hose on to spray out the fire.

Then an old lady came out and said thank you for saving my house. I was so afraid. Thanks for calling the superheroes. Ava gave her the heart and told her to smile in it whenever she wanted to call the superheroes. The End."

The Start of the Next Book

Ava is really into trying to write these days. Usually she'll ask me how to spell things but today on her own she tried to write a story. Of course the spelling is all over the place and we are working on spacing of words, but completely on her own I think she did a great job.

Ava drew this picture and Katrina created a thermal screen of it and printed it for me. Very cool. For $20 you can do the same with your kid's masterpiece. Just email Katrina a scan of the image (if you don't know her or how to contact her you can email me).

A little story that cracked me up today. I was changing Ava's diaper, Dylan was lying next to her and I sneezed. Without skipping a beat she says "Mommy you're supposed to cover your mouth when you sneeze. Now you got me and Dylan all sick."

Early Birthday Present

I got this lovely virus that covered my whole body in a rash. This picture doesn't even do justice to how bad it looked but you get the idea. Luckily it didn't itch me at all and as you can see I was still in good spirits. It was pretty much gone when I woke up this morning.

I LOVE it so much that I will keep in on for minutes at a time. Too bad this one is already for someone so she doesn't even need a picture of it.

Just for Fun

Mom entered me in the Yo Baby Yogurt contest. If you go to their site in the next couple of days you may get to see my picture as they scroll through recent entries. My mom is crazy so she sat in front of the computer with her camera to get a picture when I popped up on the screen.
