Some new things have been going on with Ava even just while my parents were here. She has been jabbering up a storm, I mean any sound she can make she makes it, it is so fun to listen to her learn more. She also copies us, which is kind of a scary thought, but she has been giving non stop kisses (wet ones of course), and responding when we talk to her or ask her a question. She understands when she's doing something wrong, She knows to come when I call her, to give me something when I ask for it, and that she will get in trouble if she doesn't obey. TJ and I are realizing how important it is for us to be consistent at this time in her life, she relies on it.
Ava has a little tea set that some good friends gave her for her birthday and she has learned how to use the tea kettle, it makes pouring sounds when you pour it, and different sounds when you open and close the lid. She knows to pour the tea in the cup and then drink it. It's so fun to watch her!
If you could pray for us as we are the leaders of our church youth group, there are being some changes made, and it is important to remember why we are doing this, and that our focus needs to be on glorifying God and seeking Him... nothing else.
