A Whirlwind...

is what I have been in lately.  My very wonderful boss received a phone call from the Governor on Monday, July 12 at around 10:30 a.m. to say that he was to be sworn in as the newest Superior Court Judge in the Chattahoochee Judicial Circuit!!!!! Everything has been total chaos for me since a good way of course.  So very soon Mr. Rumer will take the bench and he has asked me to come along with him and continue to be his right hand woman!  I feel very privileged that he thinks so highly of me, but this means lots of prep work in a very short time.
Anyway, along with the exciting judgeship news Ava and I had a baby shower for my sister, Robyn, to attend.
I can't believe that Candler will be here in just a few weeks!
Saturday, July 24 Ava turned 4 months old!  Can't believe it!
Here is a collage of how she has changed (top right 1 month, top left 2 months, bottom right 3 months, bottom left 4 months)...
(If you click on the collage it will get bigger and you can see the difference a lot better.)
Today we are going to visit the magnificent Hadley Scott for her 4 month panel pictures.  I just can't believe that it is already time to do them!  And next week we go see Dr. Flowers for her 4 month well check and shots.

At four months old Ava can:
-  Roll over to her tummy, but cries when she gets there because she hasn't figured out how to get back.
-  Still doesn't really like being on her tummy, but she can push herself up and look around a little bit now.
-  Tries to scoot when she is lying on her tummy.
-  Grabs her feet and almost pulls them to her mouth.
-  Babbles non-stop at all times of the day and night.
-  Wakes me in the morning babbling not crying.
-  Sleeps until seven most mornings.
-  Enjoys eating rice cereal made with Apple Juice.
-  Enjoys sitting in her high chair long after she has finished eating.
-  Recognizes mommy and daddy and greets them with a smile.
-  Plays with simple toys, but enjoys chewing on a burp cloth more.
-  Enjoys standing in her ExerSaucer.
-  Still loves Dinosaur Train and SuperWhy on PBS.

Our little lifesaver...

the ExerSaucer! Ava is in L-O-V-E love! It allows her to do her most favorite thing in the world, STAND, and it also offers super fun toys to play with while she stands :) Below is a video of her enjoying her ExerSaucer and talking to me in the process.

4th of July Weekend

was tons-o-fun!  Friday Robyn, Michael, Cameron and Ethan came down to visit.  Robyn and Michael watched Ava while Cameron and I went to see Eclipse (best movie so far in the Twilight Saga) and Tim cut the grass while Ethan followed every move he made.  Ethan LOVES his Uncle Tim!  I wish that I had have thought to get the camera out and snap some pictures, but it all went by too fast.
 Saturday we packed up and headed over to Mr. Billy's house for some delicious BBQ and a good time around the pool.
 Ava went on her first swim and enjoyed it (at least I think she did anyway).
She was pooped from all of the excitement of the pool ;)
Brodie insisted on holding her in his lap as always.
Hanging out with Daddy is ALWAYS one of her faves!
Sunday (while Timmy was cutting grass) Ava and I made an appearance at her Auntie Sue and Uncle James' house.  
She loves Auntie Sue:)
Getting so big!
Monday we relaxed at the house.  While relaxing Ava found a new favorite thing to in her ExerSaucer!
She still H-A-T-E-S being on her stomach, but I still make her try it on a daily basis.  She is getting really good at holding her head up while in that position, but she doesn't like it because she can't see everything that is going on around her:)  She is such an inquisitive baby, and she MUST see what is going on at all times!
