Ava is almost 6 months old now! She is a very happy baby. We are spending our summer visiting family and friends...and sleeping in. When we let her, Ava sleeps until 10:30 in the morning! She isn't crawling forward yet, but she's scooting backward AND pulling up. I keep telling her that, according to Montessori, she has to crawl before she walks. I think she'll be okay either way. These pictures were taken in Frost by Ava's Mimi. We were going for the "antique baby" look. More pictures to come soon!
