The Arace Children

A blog for the smallest members of our family.

Ava Monthly - 8 Weeks

I like to eat a lot and I like a lot of attention. I don't like to be put down, so I spend a lot of time thrown over Daddy's shoulder like a sack of flour. People think I need the snuggles, but I am really just trying to get the best view of things because I am very nosy. I like to chat with Mommy during diaper changes and I have been working on my smile quite a bit.

I am still the strongest baby ever, and I've been fine tuning my head holding. Check out this head turned, almost wink for the camera...

and some more smile practice...

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!  ;)

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.


Snuggles with my Big Bro Zo

I might look a little awkward in some of these photos, but I love snuggling with my big brother! I actually fell asleep in his arms after Mommy's photo shoot.

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.

Bunny Love - From the D'Italias

Here I am with my cute bunny Liam picked out for me while in my gorgeous romper they gave me as well.

Thanks Jeff, Beth, Tyler, Liam and Rocco!! xo

Ava Monthly - 6 Weeks

 I am cooing and flirting with little smiles here and there. I am still super nosy and continue to amaze Mommy and Daddy with my strength. I often try to throw my entire body at things I find interesting. My temper is hopefully at a peak this week, because I have no problem with screaming my little head off when I don't like something. Luckily, I am usually easy to calm.  ;)
