Meet Ava


Just wanted to share a super cute photo of the newest member of my family…my niece Ava! Isn’t she a total doll? She’s a really good baby, super smiley, and she is so, so sweet. She’s sitting up already and even trying to balance and walk (she’s about 7 months), but she is not too keen on crawling just yet. In time, I guess. Here she is with the super cute sock monkey my mom made her 🙂 She loves attacking and chewing on the arms & legs. She is ferocious!

Ava and her sock monkey

I know I didn’t tell you guys, but I was at home last week, so that’s the reason for my lack of posts. I plan to get back on track soon, but you know how crazy the holidays can be. Sometimes they zap the life out of you (well, I don’t know if it is the holidays as much as it is the 7+ hour flights).

Anyway, hope you have a great week! Until next time Swellions!

    Thanks Chris. I look forward to watching her grow. Do you sew? I know that I had sent this sock monkey pattern to my mom, so I had found a tutorial somewhere.
