Ava Thursday: I want a toy from Daddy
Before I left for Ottawa last week, I promised a toy for Ava when I got back. I stayed true to my word, but I have some words of advice for you parents who have a young girl and plan on going out of town: Never say that you'll bring back a Barbie but come back with anything less, as your little one will be highly disappointed. I found a cute little doll that was part of a series of Canadian girls, each one with a cute outfit typical of Canadian dress (the one I found for Ava had a Mounted Police outfit). Once I showed it to Ava, she could not hide her feelings and said, "Is there more?" Not to worry, though, because Ava warmed up to the doll the following day.
I love the way Ava drew the airplane in this drawing, but it looks to me that I missed my flight. Maybe I still have her toy in my bag there. And Andrea helped her with some of the letters at the bottom of the page. I love the way kids draw letters, don't you?
And as part of my promise for an extra bonus Ava Thursday, here is another drawing -- part of that set of drawings Ava did back in June of this year (see here and here). Some more big, bold colors, big smiles, and "cool clothes" -- showing off belly buttons, of course. Love the purse, too. The little drawing of a girl in the lower left-hand corner was added on recently.
