no one quite like daddy . . .

It just doesn't get much better than a daddy and his little girl . . .

Go Packers!

Ryan's Packers are playing in the NFC championship game tonight . . .so of course, we had to get pumped up. Notice how excited Ava obviously is! : ). I guess she should get props for getting woken up early from a nap after church, stuffed into a new outfit and then posing for a camera without crying!!!! Either that or she was already in game mode with her game face on.

So my blog isn't all gloominess, here's a couple pictures of Ava starting to sit on her own (on a bright note - we have a new camera!!! : ) ) She pretty much can only do it slouching forward with her hands to help her out but it's a beginning. She was 5 months old on the 9th . . .it goes too fast!

Starting to fall down (but one of my favorites!)
