Baby blues...

Awwww. Tender....

This is how Ava fell asleep last night. Rhett said she was saying her prayers. We thought it was pretty cute.

Weenie Roast!

So last weekend was Ava's first big trip to the mountains with me and Rhett. No... not camping... are you kidding me?? Just for a fun little weenie roast with some of our friends. Ava absolutely loves being outside, so we figured she'd enjoy it. And she did! She got to spend some time with her buddy Turner (my friend Talia's little boy that is 10 days younger than Ava). They laid together in her outdoor bassinet. She was WIDE awake and all Turner wanted was a liittle sleep. Ava was bound and determined that it wasn't going to happen! She kept smacking him in the head! He kept squirming over as far as he could get. Seemingly trying to get away from her. As he turns his head the other direction to avoid her. It was pretty funny! Both of the babies were really good the whole time... a sigh of relief cuz last time they were together they both screamed the whole time.

Good news!!! I think ava's refux is finally under control! Happy day! She does very good now and hardly spits up at all. Complete day and night change. Very welcomed result after projectile vomiting, countless trips to the pediatrician, low weight gain, 2 trips to Primary Children's Hospital for tests, several chiropractor visits, and who knows how many outfit changes and soaked burb cloths. They switched her medicine again and its been 2 weeks and things are much better! She's gaining weight normally now and is generally happier. And today she actually didn't scream when I put her in her carseat.... TWICE!!! Things are looking up!


A little R & R with Grandpa.... nothing better! This is Ava's favorite position to sleep in. She loves to be snuggled!
