Queen Ava

I don't post about Ava as much as I do about Moses. The reason being that it is much harder to get a picture of Ava these days--the little punk. However, she is a cute little almost-3-year-old punk so I thought I'd give her a little air time.

My sister Natalie gave her the title "Queen Ava" because that girl has always known what she wants and exactly how she wants it. My mother-in-law once said when Ava was a year and a half that she had "never seen an eighteen-month-old as opinionated as Ava". I suppose that Ava has a lot of me in her-that's what I've been told-but to me she seems like a little female Matt. They both have the same "stubborn face" and there's no budging either one of them when that face comes out.
My mom took it upon herself to inform Ava that it is almost her birthday. Since then Ava has talked about it multiple times a day. It's usually something to the effect of, "Mama, it's almost my birthday and I need presents, and balloons, and hats, and a birthday cake, and presents." Last night we were reading a book about dogs and she told me she needs a dog for her birthday. Good luck with that one, Ava. When we got to the page where the dog is taking a bath she said, "The dog take a bath. I take a bath. I a dog!" That's some good logic. I said, "Oh, you're a dog, huh?" To which she replied, "Uhh, no, I still Ava."
She keeps life entertaining. I hope she gets everything she wants for her birthday, except the dog.

When Lisa was 3 she knew what she wanted (having already been a teenager) and I do remember a certain mad dash she did in to the pool while every one said, "but you have to put your floaties on!!!!"

Is it true that the first girl is usually the "Queen" of the kids/family. So I have a lot of looking foward to with Kambryn? Well Ava is totally cute and 3 is a fun age, i am gradually finding out!

She is such a doll, and so smart! Who is gonna take credit for that? Please tell me Isabel won't grow up that fast, I don't know if I can take it.

If you really loved Ava, you'd get her a dog. I love all the pictures, she is so cute. Not only is she beautiful, she's so smart. I can't believe she's only 3. Every time I talk to her I think she should already be in Kindergarten!
