Aw ! It is so cute to see how excited and proud she is of herself. She has come such a long way ! This time a year ago she was barely learning to sit up. I have pictures of her in that weird looking chair ya'll used to set her in. Now look at her ! =] She is so precious. I love you guys & miss ya'll tons and tons ! Tell all of the kids hello !

I have a big smile on my face, and close to happy tears in my eyes at seeing Ava's first steps...ably assisted by big brother Jude. Her facial expressions - and his - are priceless, as is this video.

How far Ava has come - and how much farther she will go, now!

Congratulations, Ava! And Jude, you get the Official Good Big Brother award!

What a sweet big brother!  It looked like Ava is either crazy about Jude, excited about walking, or possibly (my guess), both.

Oh my goodness, every time I see her beautiful face my heart just melts! She is so incredibly PRECIOUS...more than diamonds, more than gold!

Jude, you are such a good big brother, and Ava is blessed to have you!
