The Little Bride

Ava was the Flower Girl in my wedding earlier this year, however she continually claimed that she was the bride. When asked who was marrying Corey she would reply "Ava", or when asked "Who is getting married? she would say "I is!".

Ava was very difficult with the photographer and quite demanding, she might as well have been the bride!

She would suddenly become camera shy

Then suddenly smile like a doll

She would even manage to get herself into the photos she was asked to stand out of.

After all, it was 'her' wedding.

Then it was the big moment, Ava didn't realize there would be so many people!

She was finally the center of attention! I wonder if it was all that she had dreamed of?

She was more than willing to put it on for the camera.

But when the photographer had Corey and I kiss, she was peeved!

She cheered herself up by dancing with plenty of men.

Ava was the happiest 4 year old bride anyone had ever seen!

We Vish You a Merry Christmas

Ava on Christmas Eve with a Red Christmas Bear my friend Adam had bought me years ago. She would not stop pressing this bear and making it sing and dance. Over and Over and Over it played. The bear even has a French Canadian accent. I had to take it from her and hide it, she threw a fit, but every one finally felt sane.

Maybe After a Trip to IKEA

This past Spring, I rode in the back of Desirie's Green mini van while Anna and her sat up front and read directions. Ava and Evan were getting pretty wild, especially Ava who kept screaming for no apparent reason at all.

Ava: AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
Aunt Jayne: Ava stop it, why are you screaming?
Ava: (clenching her fists and teeth) Because I'm sooo mad
Aunt Jayne: Why are you mad?
Ava: I'm mad at IKEA!

Little Old Lady

Ava had just started Preschool and one morning on the car ride to school, Desirie decided to ask Ava about her new friends.

Desirie: So Ava, I know you're friends are Sarah, Amy, Nicole and Marie, but what is that little boys name that you play with?
Ava: "I dunno, but he sure is a cute little guy"

"It's a Mystewy!"

Desirie was getting Ava dressed one morning and needed Ava to go get her tights.

Desirie: "Go get your tights Ava"
Ava: "I don't know where my tights are mama"
Desirie: "Ava, you have to look for them"
Ava: "I don't know where they are mama!" (Ava leaned forward, and very wide eyed whispered) "It's a Mystewwy"

Later that morning Ava's older brother Evan wanted to go outside.

Evan: "Get your coat on Ava!"
Ava: "I don't know where my coat is Evan!"..."It's a Mystewy!"

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose

Over the Thanksgiving weekend Ava sleptover and, as usual, had plenty to say. She started off the evening by holding up three chubby digits and telling me she was staying over for "free days" (meaning "three days"). Later on at bedtime, she asked me, "Is the donut shop closed?" It told her it was late and that, yes, the donut shop was probably closed. She then said, "It's closed. I know it is." Then she sang me a very nice, and poignant little song: "Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose! It's ok to lose!"
