Adam turned this box into a truck for Noah and he's been playing in it ever since. Who knew a box could entertain a kid for so long. Noah wants Ava to do everything he does, so she got to go for a ride in the truck.
Kyle, Emily and Rachelle came up last weekend and Kyle was feeling bad that he hadn't been to the zoo in a long time, so we took them to the zoo. Rachelle deserted us for her friends so we basically just gave her a bed to sleep in. MOOCH! Noah thinks Ava wants to play with all of his toys, so he generously let the dinosaurs watch over Ava while she slept.
Our cute little bug. We've been very fortunate that Ava is a pretty good sleeper. The last few nights she's only woken up once during the night. The only draw back is she sleeps better in our bed, and as you can see she already rules the roost. I love how she sleeps with her hands above her head.

That is so sweet! I actually teared up reading about Noah sharing with Ava! That is a pretty sweet truck!

I'm so glad Noah's going easy on Ava. Sophie saw Tessa as her #1 enemy at first. She likes her now and I'll tell you it's WAY better. Just wait for Noah to start trying to share his food and small (choke-able) toys with her! What a great big brother. Congrats!!

Adam used to sleep with his hands over his head. You already went to the zoo!! Maybe Noah would rather go to the park tomorrow. See ya in the morning.

Noah just took right to having a sister, didn't he. Absolutely love the dinosaurs! She is beautiful!

So glad Noah loves having a sis. I feel fortunate that my kids have been that way too. It makes life a lot easier. She is beautiful. Hope we can meet her in person sometime. We are coming to SLC on the 17th of July. Maybe we can stop by?
