Oh What Fun...Ava Laine is One!

Well Ava is officially one year old! I can't believe my sweet baby girl is already blows my mind how quickly it has gone by. She has blessed our lives so much in the past year...I can't imagine what else she has in store!
She had a great birthday yesterday which started off with her birthday bash at 10:30 a.m. at the Red Caboose Playgound. About 35 people showed up (including Mimi, Papa, Aunt Taylor and Aunt Kennedy) and she got so many presents we don't know what to do with them! One of her very favorite presents was a cell phone (of course:). We had food and a BEAUTIFUL cake that we had made by a friend from Church who does cakes. When we sang the happy birthday she looked at us all like we were silly and she was very cautious about the tasting the cake. She got to swing (one of her favorite things) and go down the slide on the playground. It was a warm, beatiful day with not a cloud in the sky! Afterwards we came home to unload presents and watch the UK game. Ava wore her new UK onsie for the game which was unfortunately not a good luck charm this time :(

Ava has been busy learning new things the last couple of weeks. She took her first steps on October 11th and now can walk for quite a few steps if she's in the mood. If you say "Where's my nose?" she will point to her nose and then clap for herself...she also claps for herself after each bite of baby food and whenever she hands you something you ask for. She is very proud of her little sweet self :)

Nathaniel has been having back problems the last few weeks, but is starting to get better. He is doing physical therapy twice a week and stretching a lot each day. We hope he gets to be 100% soon since he has been in a good bit of pain. Other than keeping up with boo bear I was just planning and getting ready for her bday party the last week or so. We are all doing well!
Love, The Millers
