John and I took Ian and Ava to the aquarium yesterday for a little time out. We have passes so it is a nice departure from everyday. This was in front of one of the fish tanks but my camera didn't really get it that good.
They have a little splash area with a huge pirate ship, huge sand box, lots of water spouting out of the ground, and a couple little slides. Ava spent most of the time in the sand box but then ventured onto the slides.
Ian enjoyed watching his sister!
And since I have been greatly slacking on my blogging, I am adding in a bunch of pictures over the last couple of weeks. In my defense, it has not been my fault! Every night when Ian is asleep and I put him down, within minutes he is up screaming and needing to be fed again. It was those dreadful 2 top teeth which thankfully are now in and the past 2 nights have been so much better! I have even woken up a couple of times and checked on him to make sure he was still breathing because he has been sleeping so well!
Playing with a string and his best friend, Kitty. None of the other kids particularly like Kitty because they like to aggravate him and then he likes to bite them back. But Kitty seems to really like Ian and lets him grab ahold of his fur. Kitty only licks him and gives him friendly little love bites. So, Ian was crawling around the house with this string (most of the time it was hanging out of his mouth!) and Kitty was following him and playing with the string....extremely adorable! Note:he is under the coffee table and every time he tries to sit up, he bonks his head. You'd think he would figure this out, but alas, he is a man at heart and continues to do it.
Ava said Ian needed a check up so she checked out his heart and his ears. He was declared healthy... thank you Dr. Ava.
And takin it back a few months, here is Ava checking out baby boy no name in the weeks before he was born! Remember when my midwife would come for my prenatals and Ava always had to do her own check on the baby's heart and my blood pressure?! I think this is one of the main reasons that she is so in love with him!
And the surprise that was 2 weeks ago! We got a new camper!! It has a king bed in the front, a full in the back and a pull out sofa bed plus the dinette becomes a bed, a 3 burner stove, tv, microwave, full bath, and AC. We are probably gonna use it at the end of this month for the first time when we visit family in Orlando. Figure our first time in it should be close to home!
