M&M's....the ultimate motivator

Ava is eating finger foods now! Cheerios, bits of toast, crackers....Of course if it wasn't for the M&M's, I'm not sure she ever would have started. I don't have this on video, but when she was at occupational therapy last time, she put two signs together. Guess what two words she signed? "MORE CANDY", of course.

Charissa, You have a fun blog. I didn't know you were a missionary kid :) I like these 'tag' things just cuz I learn more about my friends. And it's great to see your Ava doing so well.

I can't get over how big she's getting! And don't you just love it when food can be used as a motivator. She's doing really well picking up those tiny M&M's!

We were watching your video and Caleb said, "Candy please!". Good thing I have some M&M's:)
Ava is doing so well!:)

Great job, Miss Ava! I always love your background goings on, Charissa..."What time's that thing we're going to later?", and you casually say, "Seven.", it's just so cool! It is coming up on a year that Ava will be home with you...that's amazing!

Take care,
Michelle

I've only been gone a few months and she looks SO much older! I love the baby mohawk she has in the first part. Haha!
By the way, I love how much you videotape your kids. I think eventually you are going to have a "Charlie, bit my finger" kind of moment!

We used M&Ms to motivate aiming INSIDE the toilet!  Works great.

This is so great! M&M's are definitely the "ultimate motivator". They helped us in potty training my barely 2 year old SON! Go Ava!!!

My girls first finger foods were these corn puff things that they thought were pop corn, they totally were juke food! lol
