I was not looking forward to today because Ava's Dr. app't included SHOTS, and yes...that is plural. She had 3!! Poor baby, but she handled it very well...only cried for a second and then was comforted in my arms (BIG SIGH)!!! This picture gives you an idea of what sad little face I had to see today! On good news though, Ava is weighing 12 lbs and is measuring 24 inches long!! YAY! I love that she is tall like me!!

Our little girl is getting so big and changing every day! I can't believe it was just 8 weeks ago that we brought her home! Time flies!!!! Here is an update of what Ava is doing...
-She is sleeping 7-8hrs at night!!! Mommy and Daddy are VERY HAPPY.
-She is starting to Coo and talk to us...so sweet.
-She is smiling, melts my heart every time :)
-She loves to go on walks in her stroller...puts her to sleep every time.
-She is doing great at "tummy time" and her neck is getting stronger. She holds her head up exceptionally well!
-She loves to cuddle and still prefers to sleep on your chest than in her crib....a little spoiled.
-She is focusing and falling objects! Her eyes get so big when she is looking around and when we are talking to her! It's adorable.
-She has the most expressive emotions I have ever seen in a baby. We call it the many looks of Ava. It is hilarious!
-She is the sweetest and happiest baby BUT I have to admit she has a short hot temper! Lets just say she will let you know fast when she wants something.
-Her hair color is changing! She still has my light brown color but it is showing signs of a pretty auburn. Maybe that explains the temper...HA!
-I will know her weight on Monday when she goes to the Dr. for her first shots but I'm pretty sure she is close to 13lbs!

The past few days our little family loaded up our explorer and headed to Tulsa, Ok to visit my parents or A.K.A, Nanny and Poppy! We had so much fun and Ava did wonderful on our trip! She is such a happy little baby! Thank you Mom and Terry for such a wonderful stay and loving on Ava so much! I wish we lived closer! Here are a few pictures from the trip...

Maybe I'm cruel for saying this but this has to be the cutest little "sad" face. I admit that I secretly enjoy seeing her little pouty lip...seriously people it's precious. And the sound she makes with it makes it all to sweeter. I just cuddle her like a momma bear when she lays it on me. Anyway, I had to share this moment with you....
