balloon is one of ava's favorite words. it doesn't sound much like balloon, more like "baaAAA" but it's balloon, nonetheless. one of my favorite things she does is imitate my voice -- my inflections and my tone. she's been saying "oooooh" at anything sparkly for a couple months now, but her "what's that?!" really gets me. apparently i do a very enthusiastic "what's thaaAAAT?"
valentine's day is one of my favorite holidays. and i hate when people rag on it and call it a made up holiday...let's just take the opportunity to eat chocolate and love on each other and enjoy grand romantic gestures from our husbands and run with it! it is a holiday of goodness!
this shoot was freezing cold and lasted probably all of six minutes. ava is never really bothered by the cold, which surprises me because baby girl is sassy. we may have only lasted minutes, but i love what this shoot captures: my little family in our new texas environment and a pretty balloon and a pretty baby and a couple of people in love.
