Well, the holiday season is upon us - my favorite time of year! There have been lots of happenings in the Williams household. This past weekend we went to the Village at Corte Madera to do some shopping and visit with Santa. It is official that Santa freaks any and all kids out. Ava will go to anyone, and rarely cries, so the fact that she screamed when she sat on Santa's lap can't be a coincidence. He is scary! Though, we got a picture of Ava right before she screamed. It's a keeper!
We also bought our Christmas tree and put it up on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It is very cute, and Ava seems to like looking at it. The funny thing she doesn't like is actually touching it. I think it feels too prickly. She kind of wimpers when she gets near the tree now. Here are some pictures of her helping to decorate.
And some pictures when it was all up!
We had Thanksgiving here at our house this year, and Nanny and Papa Williams came to visit. We made a big turkey dinner and did lots of shopping, eating and talking. There have also been lots of fun, relaxing weekends in November - walking around, hanging out at the Park Chalet and visiting with Nandita and Jochem a lot - because little Nina is coming soon! We can't wait, only a week away now!
Ava is just getting so big, and developing so much, it is crazy. She can sit up so well, and can lean over and recover herself. She is also rolling all over the place. She sleeps on her tummy now, whereas she hated her tummy a month ago! She is babbling like crazy saying things like babababababa, bobobobobobobo, mamamamamamama, and making funny little noises with her lips. If we put her on her hands and knees, she can hold herself for a few minutes - she is going to be crawling before I know it!
Here a few cute pictures of Ava this month.
And here are more pictures as well!
