In a heartbreaking turn of events, Melissa Rycroft Strickland and hubby Tye Strickland’s home was recently burgled — and the theft included the entirety of Melissa’s photos of baby Ava. The former Bachelor contestant and her high school sweetheart had Ava, their first child, just over a year ago, in February 2011. The Strickland family is now living in Los Angeles, where they moved to from their hometown of Dallas, Texas, and are currently filming for their new reality show, Melissa & Tye.

On Tuesday, Melissa tweeted this photo montage of baby Ava’s playground adventures — followed by some much-needed nap time on dad’s shoulder. “Too much playground,” Melissa added. Thanks to camera phones, it looks like the Strickland family will be able to rack up adorable baby photos in no time!
