Ava 4 months old

Ava is such a happy and easy going baby. She enjoys eating and playing with her toes, blowing bubbles, jumping in her jumperoo, smiling and laughing at us (especially Parker), riding in Bjorn facing out now:), going for walks, and talking in her sweet little voice. She loves patty cake and cracks up while we are singing and clapping her hands. We are surprised at how well she can hold her weight on her legs now. She looks so proud of herself when you stand her up:)

At Ava's 4 month check up she weighed 13 lbs 2 ounces and was 24 1/2 inches long.

We are so blessed to have a healthy and beautiful baby girl!

Parker 2 1/2 years old

2 1/2 going on 20..........Parker is growing up so fast, it's amazing how much they learn as toddlers. He's such a clever little guy!! I'm pretty sure he is going to get what he wants in life and he is always going to live life to the fullest.

Some of Parker Jay's favorite things to do our play with Ava, go to the park, go for walks, eat ice cream, cook (especially with eggs, washing veggies, stirring, and pouring in the spices). He also loves to watch Chuggington, the Oceans documentary (he knows more species living in the Ocean than any adult), and the first Car's movie.

Just as we thought he would, Parker is the best big brother to Ava. He is always making sure his little sis is okay:) He is USUALLY gentle and loves interacting with her, especially making her smile and laugh. He gets the biggest kick out of it when she babbles...he says she's talking to him.

Parker has said some of the funniest things we've ever heard....there is never a dull moment in the Lannert home:)

Ava ~ 3 months old

Ava is the sweetest little baby!! She is happy most of the time and a joy to be around. She is so intriqued by her big brother.....she loves to watch his every move. He loves entertaining her so it works out well. Parker also likes to help out when Ava is upset by pushing her in the swing, laying beside her on her mat, or singing to her. I think they are going to be the best of friends. Ava can hold her head up steadily now and the girl is full of smiles! She laughed for the first time this month! On July 19th she rolled from her belly to her back. Ava likes to talk, coo and make noises...she talks back to us:) She is a daddy's girl and a mommy's girl. She likes for us to be constantly holding her which is okay with us since we know how fast the time goes by and soon we will be looking back at these pictures wondering how our baby girl got so big so fast. We have to keep a bib on Ava at all times because she is the biggest slobber bug....she loves to eat her fingers....sometimes we wonder if she is teething early. Like her big brother Ava likes to cross her feet and occassionally play with her ears while she is eating. Reminds me so much of Parker when he was a baby. Like her daddy did when he was a child she rocks her head side to side to soothe herself to sleep. She is a good sleeper....we put her in her bed awake and she goes right to sleep. Like her mother....well, Ava looks so much like my baby pictures and mamma says she has the same personality as I did as a baby...sweet, smiling, and always happy.
