So after having grown up with my dad and three brothers; then marrying wayne and having two sons, Ava is making up for lost time of girliness! So lately she has been patting her diaper and saying "stinky" when she has messed it up. So I thought it might be time to introduce the potty. However, she was scared of the toilet (we have a little seat that sits on top of the actual toilet seat). Everytime I put her on there she would just cling to me and cry. Then one day I took out finger nail polish and she was all at attention. So I decided we would try something new. I set her on the training seat and gave her a pedicure. I clipped her toenails, filed them, and painted them a shimmering baby pink. She sat perfectly still and watched me the whole time. Then when I was done she kept pointing for me to do more. So I did her fingernails as well (but only with a clear coat). Of course she did not potty, but at least we are making progress and she will sit for a while. Now everytime she sits on the potty she points to the drawer with the nail polish. She is so cute, and I love how girlie she is! And hopefully she will continue to progress on potty training.
Um, so wayne was looking at my blog and I noticed my last post was my belly shots and i was like wow, i am not pregnant anymore(although you can't tell), maybe i should update my blog! so here it is;
I had a beautiful baby girl, Ava Lynn Holloman on march 22 (which carla would probably like to me mention that was her birthday as well).
Her nickname has been baby bird since before she was born, and i think it has stuck
When carson and landen where coming to the hospital to meet their sister for the first time carson turned to landen and said "landen, let's go see if she's really a bird" (hope he wasn't too disappointed)
Landen and Carson are great big brothers and the only time they get in trouble over the baby is when they won't stay out of her face because they always want to be with her.
um, this maybe strange, and carson will be quite mad when he is older, but carson went up to wayne, lifted up his shirt and said "my boobs have drinks in them...you want some!" we almost died. and then he tried to nurse ava once when he was holding her! this coming from the same child that when i first got pregnant pointed to my chest and said "i like those!" YIKES!!! i think it is just because there was nothing there before, so i was probably thinking, yeah me too! oh well all good things must come to an end. (this post is getting weird)
So in closing
Ava was blessed on May 1st and it was a beautiful blessing. She was blessed to be a virtuous young woman, to have an education and gain knowledge, and have a close and special relationship with her mother. (unfortunately that is about all i remember, but i know there was more)
Well this is my update, and hopefully it won't be so long before the next one.
Okay so normally I avoid the camera when I am prego. However, my boys are so excited about their little sister that I thought I might regret if I didn't take pictures. Still I wish I would have taken then about a month ago before i doubled in size! My friend tricia took these for me, and she actually took more that i posted on facebook, but these were my favorites. Thanks Tricia!
