1 Year Old Baby Ava Kalea to Hit the Ski Slopes This Winter: Updated

Ava Kalea Skiing BabyLooking for Strategic Partnerships for Skiing Baby Project

(Updated 10/11/17)

This post first appeared on a LinkedIn ski professionals group pages and then on Awesome Travel Guides.  Thought it should also be posted here directly on Ava Kalea’s site so that her friends, family and fans will all know what she is up to.

Ava Kalea was a year old on 9/7/17 and we are looking forward to getting her on the snow this coming season.  She received her first pair of skis for her first birthday and has been watching lots of YouTube videos of other babies skiing.

Considering spending a full month (or more) in Salt Lake City to ski at Park City or some of the other local resorts. Figuring 30 days on the snow will do her (and her parents) well.

Could potentially get Epic, Mountain Collective, or MAX passes and do some traveling – possibly having our baby ski in every resort on a pass …

We will be filming the entire process and progress – and posting daily on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. This a really great opportunity for ski and travel partners to get the word out about how great they are for family skiing and snowboarding.

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions on how to hook up some partnerships and/or the best way(s) to get Ava Kalea up to speed?


Ava Kalea Gets Her First California Work Permit

Ava Kalea Work Permit State of CaliforniaHey there everyone!  Ava Kalea just received her first work permit in the State of California.  Now she is legally ready and able to work in the entertainment industry.  While still a baby, she will be open to modeling, but as she gets older, she will be focusing on acting and developing her special talents.


Ava’s Idols: Jesse-Jane McParland

Ava Kalea is going to be learning martial arts with her dad as soon as possible. In preparation she has been watching YouTube videos of other youngsters practicing varying forms of martial arts.

One of Ava’s favorite Karate girls is Jesse- Jane McParland from Ireland.  “JJ” as some call her, is a YouTube sensation, has over 117 total martial arts titles and has made several amazing appearances on Britain’s Got Talent.

Here is Jesse-Jane McParland, aka JJ Golden Dragon in a private dojo.

This is Jesse-Jane’s first appearance on Britain’s Got Talent at age 9:

Ava Kalea Kennedy’s First Time in Ocean

This is a short video of Ava Kalea Kennedy’s first time in the Pacific Ocean – or in any water outside of the bathtub and a little rain …

Video taken January 29, 2017 – Ava was just short of 5 month old.

Do you think she liked the water? Think she’ll grow up liking the beach?

Ava Kalea Picks Hawks at New England

Ava Kalea Kennedy Seattle Seahawks Richard Sherman 25Ava Kalea is by no means a football expert, but she picks the Seattle Seahawks to win in an upset at New England tonight, in what was the Super Bowl match-up in 2015.

She wants to throw out props to #25 Richard Sherman for his blocked kick this past Monday night and hopefully welcome back Kam and Bennett with a strong game and BIG W tonight.

Note: Bennett is not back tonight after-all, but the Hawks are still hanging tough down just 7-6 at the end of the 1st quarter.

Ava Kalea Rolls Over at 9 Weeks and 2 Days: Video

A couple of days ago, Ava Kalea rolled over for the very first time – and her mom was actually taking video!  Please enjoy – feel free to share and comment.

I thought this was really cool – especially considering she was only 9 weeks and 2 days in our world. My mom says that I did not roll over until I was 5 months old! (Girls are definitely quicker than boys).

3 Weeks Old: San Diego Beach Parents Must Have Jogging Stroller

This week I decided to dress you up in one of the outfits I bought you. A pretty colorful dress and a flower for your hair that Aunty Rachael got for you. She bought you a ton of pretty bows for your hair that will match anything you wear.

Flower in her hair just like mommy #avakalea

Before you were born I went crazy at Target. I waited till after the baby shower to shop for you so that I didn’t buy any duplicates. Your dad had never seen me go crazy shopping. He stepped away for a moment and I came back with a full cart of outfits.

Getting ready for #avakalea 14 days and counting

Funny, but I’ve never witnessed @staciakennedy being so into shopping …

Your dad took us to the beach this week. I love taking a break during the afternoon and spend time with you and your dad. Here we are again in Del Mar.

Your dad wanted to buy a jogging stroller months ago. Not for jogging but to take you on our walks on the beach. The Chicco Travel System stroller we have will not do on the sandy terrain.

As you know before you were born we love walking on the beach and catching a sunset almost every night.

Your dad is a great shopper and found a great deal on craigslist. You are too tiny for this type of stroller but we put down a nice fluffy blanket your aunty Fancy and Desi bought you and strapped you in. You fit perfectly and looked very comfortable.

If you are a #beachparent this is a must have. Jogging strollers are the best for strolls on the beach.

If you are looking for a good one, Jeep strollers are Daddy Bloggers favorite or anything with good tires and comfortable seating for baby to sleep in.

(For more advice and reviews Ask Daddy Blogger World for his opinion.)

This week your grandma Jojann also flew in from Seattle, WA to visit you. She will be here the rest of the week to stare at you and kiss you all up.

As far as your health you have been growing like a weed. You are now 8lbs 14oz and 20 inches long.

You are also only doing breast milk and the last 2 days it’s been very hot so you have been crabby.

Not sure if it is the heat or if you are just so hungry. Or just the pains of growing so fast.

You make a ton of noises while you sleep and while you are just chilling at home you talk and squeak about.

It’s cute but also not sure if it’s gas when you start to get really fussy. Not so cute when you projectile vomit your milk at me.

Love you lots!


2 Weeks Old: First Trip To Venice Beach

On September 21st you turned 2 weeks old. We started off the week with a great week.

You have been doing is eating a lot and sometimes you eat too much, too fast so you hiccup a lot and throw up on me a lot. You took your first real bath. After that, your hair got more spiky and I think your hair is growing fast.


#SpikyHairDontCare My hair was very spiky when I was a baby too. Your hair is dark on the top but the sides look reddish and blonde. I think you got that from your daddy. His hair was red when he was little.

I still can’t tell but your eyes are grey or blueish. I hope they stay like that or be more like your dad’s. Either way, it doesn’t matter you are still so pretty and beautiful!!!

We also went to the doctor this week and you gained back your weight. You were 7lbs 8oz.

I got you dressed up and decided to deck you out in leopard print. Thanks to your Aunty Cherie, who sent you a ton of clothes including this outfit. ava-kalea-lepoard-print

Your dad and I also love taking walks on the beach. When we moved to San Diego from Washington your dad and I would walk on the beach almost every day.

We haven’t been to the beach since you were born and your dad came home this week and decided it was time to show you your first sunset. Here you are at the beach in Del Mar, we tried to wake you to watch the sunset.

Over the past weekend, I was excited because one of your Aunties Jolyn that came to visit you last week wanted to see you again. She was in town for a few more days. I got your dad to drive us up north where she was staying. We took you and your brother on your first road trip to the LBC (Long Beach California).

Your aunties loved visiting with you and they all took turns holding you. Here we are in front of El Torito’s they have a great buffet for breakfast.

After that, I really wanted to take you to one of our favorite places on the Venice Beach Boardwalk, this place called Poke Poke. Since I haven’t been able to eat raw fish since I was pregnant with you I was excited to go there. Your dad had lived in Santa Monica a city very close by for a few months a couple of years ago. I went to visit him there and we had a great time. I think your dad misses living there. Maybe we will live up there again one day.

Loving me some @pokepokebowls

There was also a new place that serves acai bowls in a coconut shell. It was their grand opening and it was only $3 I love a great deal. It was Amazebowls!

One thing we have been noticing is that you love to sleep with your hands above your head. It reminds me of your dad. He loves to go to the ocean and raise his hands to the sky in a Y shape and say YES! YES to the world, YES to abundance, Yes to Opportunity! It’s a way he gets energy, inspiration from the ocean. Maybe you will do that too when you get older.

Monday, you spent the mid-morning and afternoon with your dad. He took you for a walk and to the gym with him. While I went to see an acupuncturist for the first time. I have been having minor lower back pain. Now it is all better. Dad recommended me to get this treatment and I wasn’t sure but it was surprisingly very helpful.

The next day evening you slept a lot during the day which means you were up with me all night. I had no sleep. I was very tired but look how awake and alert you were. I wouldn’t trade this time for anything else.

Loving being your mommy! Happy 2 Weeks and will be back next week with a new update on your journey.

Love Mom!
