PSF - I should have named her Ava

A few weeks ago, Melody and Jack got to spend the weekend at their grandparents' house in Birmingham.

One of their favorite activities is a visit to the McWane Center.

Since Captain and P3 are total pushovers, the kids always gets to pick out a present at the gift shop on the way out.

Jack, who is so original, {sarcasm} always picks out a different variation of the toy he got last time.

Melody picked out this
Yes, that's a sippy cup for a little baby with the name Ava on it.

P3 tried everything she could to convince Melody to chose something different. Melody even turned down a stuffed animal (completely unheard of for my huge stuffed animal lover!) for this cup.

And then, being the pushovers that they are, they bought her, what is now known around our house as: The Ava Cup.





I guess I should have named her Ava.

And I can't really blame Captain and P3...it's next to impossible to resist this cutie-pie!

What a little cutie pie!

Ava is a good name, I like. Hopefully she won't start referring to herself as Ava then you will have issues.

Bren said...

I would have bought her the cup too. Sweet Ava!

Maybe that's her alter ego!

Absolutely irresistible.

The Ava cup will be a treasured family heirloom, because it has such a great story attached to it.

How funny that she wanted that. I saw these at the mall a few weeks ago and I was going to get Landon one but I didn't they are so cute I may have to go back and get him one. I love the McWane Center I want to go there now. Also Ava is my girl name Landon would be an Ava if he had been a girl.

LOL! That is one of the funniest things I have ever heard! Don't you just love that grandparents will let them do anything!?!

This story is so funny. Jayden has this same cup, but with his name on it of course. ;)

Hey, Thanks for the comment on my last post. I love that I have blogger friends who can pray and encourage me. Life has its bumps, but God is faithful and know that He is going to catch me when I fall. Thanks again for all your love and support!!

It is a nicely designed cup, maybe she was attracted to the aesthetics. Here’s my photo story. happy Friday!

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

That's funny! Gotta love her determination.

Heidi said...

What I cutie, I don't think I could resist her either. And the name thing never changes. I have a seven year old that insits she is going to change her name to Crystal. She loves pretty jewelry.
If you'd like to stop by my blog I'm at Cake Crumbs.
