Ava goes to daycare when I work from home for a half day two days a week. Those days are harder than when I drop her off early on the days when she's there all day while I'm at the office. She's very attached and when we have the morning together, it's hard. But when I'm back to pick her up, she's very happy and tells me or shows me what she's done while she's there.

Here's a peek into some recent daycare stories from Ava's teachers:
"Ava had a good afternoon. She enjoyed listening to Christmas stories and dancing to music."
"Ava had fun playing with gift boxes, wrapping paper, and bows. They liked hiding toys inside."
"Ava had fun talking to herself in the mirror today and seemed to be rehearsing a wide range of emotions (A budding actress?)"
"Ava ate pretty well at lunch. I haven't seen her eat that well before." -- Yah! She ate ziti, applesauce and bread and butter.
"Ava is eating better and was full of energy"
"We went outside briefly today to try out our coats"
"Ava was entertaining us. She had a book and was singing and moving her around. It was funny."
"Ava had fun making a snow man out of paper shapes today. "We're talking about sizes (small, medium, large circles)."
"Having lots of fun shaking our jingle bells to the holiday songs lately. Also lots of painting projects."
"Ava likes to climb up on chairs and help whenever I try to decorate the bulletin boards" --She is a big helper at home too!
"Ava loves listening to the Nutcracker. She likes to conduct the orchestra."
"Ava thought it was exciting to stand on the window sill until she couldn't get down by herself."
"Ava had a good time copying her friend today. She wanted to do everything he did today."
"Ava has been determined to walk sideways on the window sill every chance she can get. At first she was scared." --I'm glad to see her be more daring!
"Ava had enjoyed painting and drawing. She sticks with it longer than the boys did."
I love these short vignettes and insights into Ava's day. It's fun to capture these to watch her grow!
