The Arace Children

A blog for the smallest members of our family.

Brotherly Love (?)

Here is Enzo feeding Ava for the very first time...

and also doing other things to her that weren't quite as loving.  ;)

Longest Drool Evah!

(she is not quite ready for the bouncer despite her crazy neck strength. we'll try again in a few weeks)

Bunny Love - Maileg

Mommy found a whole family of bunnies to collect for me. Maileg makes beautiful bunnies and other cute animals for children to enjoy. Mommy thought the micro bunny would be the perfect start to my collection. Here I am meeting tasting my new bunny...

First Day at the Beach

I stayed cool under an umbrella and enjoyed a nice breeze while I slept the morning away...

 

Ava's First Fourth of July

This Fourth of July we decided to check out the much talked about Hingham Parade. It was awesome for my big brother with lots of cool trucks and candy to catch, but it was a little loud for me (lots of salutes and drums) so, Mommy and I stayed in a shady spot with a view a block up from all the action while the boys explored. Also, it was HOT! Mommy said it felt like 100 and she was right because the weather people said 91 with a "real feel" of 105! Yikes! Needless to say, we couldn't stay for the whole parade, but we had fun anyway. After we went to a coffee shop to cool off. Enzo was in heaven with his carrot cake cupcake. Check out all these smiles!

And my red and white outfit with my blue starred bunny of course!  ;)

Ava's First Denim

topped with a yellow bow...

She constantly wants to stand already!

First family bath

My big brother helped Mommy and Daddy give me a bath today. He was very gentle and helpful, especially keeping me warm with bottles full of water, which he dumped on my belly, on my arm, on my leg, and almost on my head. He also shared his toys by piling them on top of me.

As you can see by my expression, I was very apprehensive because he is very unpredictable, in my experience.

 

Slept Through the Night

I slept through the night for the first time! Ate and went to bed at 9:30 PM and didn't wake up for breakfast until 6:30 AM!! Not too shabby.

Pink Tights

Today was my first time officially wearing tights - Mommy may have tried them on me for fun prior to this occasion. I had a cute dress on, but by this point in the day I needed something more comfortable to wear. I fell asleep in the Ergo while following my brother around outside.

Mommy thinks I look like a little ballerina. ♥

Double Trouble

Mommy was feeling brave, so she decided to take us shopping without Daddy. This was her first time managing the giant double stroller on her own (very tricky because it's heavy, huge and only fits in her car in one very exact position). Enzo and I fell asleep, so she decided to grab some lunch at the Nordstrom Cafe - Mommy's Favorite. Maybe it was my female intuition of being in a fabulous store, or maybe Mommy and I have specially synced appetites because I woke up hungry just as the waiter was walking over with her salad.

This isn't Mommy's first rodeo, so she fed me and ate her delicious salad left handed at the same time.
