I was so impressed that she did it twice in a row. I have to watch out now though cause now she may roll over off the couch I always have her sitting in her boppy though to prevent that.
She is growing so quickly. I can't wait to see what she does next! I think babbling is coming up soon.
First of all I gotta pack. I gotta pack for 4 days and 3 nights ( guess I won't be posting for awhile)
I gotta go shopping for Khaki Pants and shoes and I gotta buy some new Make Up at the Benefit counter, and I gotta get a pedicure and waxing and than flat iron my hair. Luckily I dyed it yesterday cause I don't know how I would have fit that in...I gotta do all these and keep in mind that I will have Ava to handle as well. I am gonna bleach my teeth tonight and pluck my eyebrows and exfoliate.
I thankfully did my laundry already.
By the time I am done with all this I will be in Palm Springs.
I am kinda bummed though cause we were suppose to go to Knott's Scary Farm with the "usual suspects" ( Josh, Vickie, Greg, Maria, Burns and Loryn) as we do every year but I completely forgot I had my business trip to attend so we will just have to wait til Oct 10th when we all go to Shipwrecked together before Mike Burns big Roast at the Queen Mary on Saturday ( that is going to be epic)
Well I suppose I should get dress now to run my errands while Ava is napping. Lord knows I can't do it when she is awake.
See you all on Wednesday! Holly and I will be heading back to Long Beach after the Piaggio Staff Dinner thing Tuesday night.

DAMN baby clothes laundry HURTS. I just took a bunch of Ava's onesies and Pj's out of the dryer and it took like forever because I kept burning myself on the hot snaps and zippers!!
I have a ton of folding to do but I think I am gonna wait a bit before I do that and let my hands recover.
These are pictures of the BFF's. Than we have Gabe and Parker after Parker just got done playing uno with Loryne and than there is Josh with his other child on his lap while Greg plays a song into his beer bottle and than Little Colette checking out Ava.

The usualy suspects were there..Greg and Maria, Burns and Loryn, Giselle and Franklin. It was a very nice night by the fire and we all enjoyed Pizza,Pasta and wine.
It was so great finally getting Evie and Ava together considering all the pregnant times me and Vickie shared together and talking about how close the girls will be.
Parker had a great time too playing Uno with Loryn and liked the board game Josh gave him and playing Josh arcade shooting game.
It was kinda surreal last night. Usually when us group of friends get together it is Wild nights of boozing and staying up to 6am in a drunken haze. Now it was different. Giselle and Franklin have little Colette there, and Josh and Vickie with Evie and us with Parker and Ava.
I know there will be some nights to get away from the kids and paint the town Red when the Rally trips come around but last night was really a great time.
I am so happy too that my husband let me sleep in til 11am this morning..MUCH NEEDED REST!
I will post pictures of the meeting of the BFF's once my damn cord comes in!
Anyways..My hair smells like camp fire from last nights telling tales around the fire pit.

When I was I was thin I hated being thin cause it was too thin. I always wanted some meat on my bones but I could never gain the weight no matter how much I ate.
Well After having kids there was my for sure way of gaining weight now I HATE having the extra weight. It is SO hard to lose it but I know if I just got off my junk food diet and arse and work out I could do it.
I was so depressed shopping the other day cause I found the most awesome pair of skinny black satin pants from Guess and they fit perfect cept for the waistline ARGH! Anyway I bought them and they are now my "GOAL" pants.
I figured out my new routine of loosing weight the fun way...DANCING!
When I used to go to the clubs and dance I was at my fittest and really more energized.
So today I started dancing hard in my living room non stop for an hour in High Heels. I think this is going to become a daily routine for me and I think Fridays I am gonna have to gather some gal friends and find a local hot spot in long beach to go dancing at...Any Takers??
She has already started to grasp her pacifier, turn on her side to almost a full turn around, start making new noises and lifts her head up.
She is very strong.
She has already been to 3 birthday parties and the Fair! I can't wait til I get my cord to my camera so I can post her pictures up.
Well Cheers to Ava's 4 week mark and the countdown to my last two weeks of maternity leave.

There was of course the visiting of the classroom and seeing his artworks posted on every wall, The outdoor bake sale of cookies and cupcakes and other delights. There was the good Ole Book fair in the library. Do you remember when you used to get those colorful book order papers to buy books and going to the book fairs in elementary. My family rarely could afford to buy me any of those books but boy how exciting it was when they would buy me them.
Parker than had to show us his tricks on the monkey bars and jungle gyms. He than wanted to make sure everyone got to meet Ava. It was funny going there and all the other Mothers saying "Oh you had the baby!!!". I thought to myself how funny it would have been if I went still looking pregnant and them thinking Damn she has been pregnant forever!! Is she ever gonna have that baby??
Anyways The youth nowadays and the advanced schooling makes you wonder the great things that will happen in the future.
