San Diego

We recently took a trip to San Diego.  Ava was so amazing during the travel.  We didn’t even tell her about the airplane until we were an hour from leaving for the airport because otherwise Ava would have asked about the airplane every five minutes until we left.  And if it gets too difficult, we […]

Ava Is 34 Months Old

Independence/Motor Skills Ava is still deeply committed to being a kitty.  The other night she insisted that she didn’t need to wear pajamas to bed because her fur would keep her warm enough. Ava is back to fighting potty training.  I don’t understand why she keeps going back and forth but it’s not the sort […]

Ava is 33 Months Old

Independence/Motor Skills Ava is still very committed to being a kitty.  Her nanny fashioned a tail out of a bow tie and it was a necessity for the next week.  Then Ava remembered that last Halloween I had made whiskers for her and she asked for them again. One night when we were putting Ava […]

Hawaii

In the year since we went to Hawaii, my brain made parts of Kauai into my happy place.  I would be writing a patent application and a picture of the trees on this one road would appear in my mind.  You feel like you’re driving through a jungle because the trees on each side of […]

Ava is 31 Months Old

Independence/Motor Skills Potty training is going better again.  Ava usually stays dry all night and I can get her to use the potty in the morning more often than not.

Hoggle Zoo

I learned last week that you should never use the word zoo around Ava unless you’re ready to go to the zoo right this minute.  I asked Ava if she wanted to go to the zoo last Sunday and she kept asking about it every five minutes for the next hour.  I think she likes […]

Ava is 2.5 Years Old

Ava does not want to grow up.  She’d probably be unhappy to know that she’s 2.5 years old.  The other day she was on her swing and I told her she was so big that she was growing out of the swing.  Ava said, “No!  I tiny!”  Since then she’s gotten very upset if you […]
