Ava Calling


Little Miss Ava Rose has arrived. She was born on Valentine's Day at 9:30am, weighing in at 8lbs 5oz and 19 1/2 inches long. She's healthy and has a healthy appetite and looks like a perfect mixture of Mommy and Daddy!!
She has the fattest cheeks ever & we haven't quit kissing on them yet. I'll post pics from the hospital soon and the whats and whens of that eventful Valentine's Day. I need to go through all the pics, but in the meantime I wanted you to have an idea of what she looks like.
We're so glad she's here and we are so excited to see who this little person becomes!

Headed home for the first time. She looks so tiny in this new carseat!

Just a shot of her in one of my favorite outfits on her first full day home with Mommy and Daddy!

Tuesday night we gave her a sponge bath and this shot made Rusty say he saw the "Gray" in her.

Today in her bassinet all dolled up in her outfit and bow. Rusty takes she and I out for about an hour so I can walk around and get out of the house before she needs to eat again. So I get her all dolled up in my favorite outfits since she'll outgrow them in the next week or two.

Have a good week. Hopefully I'll remember to post the hospital pics soon.
