2 months

It has been so busy lately with all of the holiday stuff going on. Dec. 19th Ava turned 2 months so I need to do a 2 month post... (Christmas pictures will come later when I finally upload them)

At 2 months Ava weight 10 lbs 8 oz. 22 inches long. She has moved up to 0-3 month clothes, and still in size 1 diapers. She has graduated up the the big girl bottles since she is now drinking 5 oz of breast milk every 4 hrs during the day but will sleep about 5-6 hrs at night (mommy and daddy very very happy about that!!! She has also moved into her own room sleeping in her crib!

Fun things she has started doing...
-LOVES her tounge!!! it is ALWAYS out of her mouth!
-She smiles all the time
-She now can focus on toys and seems to like them...every now and then she will hold onto them if you put them in her hands.
-she wants to suck her thumb...but hasn't figured out that she needs to get it out of her fist.

David and I are so blessed to have her in our life, and we enjoy every minute with her. It is so much fun watching her grow and develope into the the young lady she is going be.

Sorry it has been so long. I hope to post Christamas before I go back to work on Thursday.
Be praying for me...I think I will do ok going back, but it will still be a little hard that first day. Hope everyone had a great Christmas!

All mommy wants for Christmas...

All mommy wants for Christmas is a silent night!!! Although I can't complain Miss Ava Kate is a great sleeper (at night). Pretty much every night this week she has slept 5 hrs in a row, and twice 6 hrs! But I can still ask Santa for more...right?

I can't remember if I mentioned that last weekend Ava Kate and I went home for a girls weekend while Daddy stayed home and rested and studied for finals. Well y'all might be shocked to hear this but Sassy and I went SHOPPING!!! Lets just say Miss Ava is now in the Christmas spirit and pretty much can be till Christmas!!!

Isn't she the cutest! Today I went to the store and got her a Christmas bow and some Christmas socks! She is trying to get onto Santa's good list!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas finally around our house! The tree has been up we just finally got around to finishing it. It feels like it has taken forever for Christmas to come this year...I was wanting to put the tree up during the summer! (must of been a preggos thing)

Here is the fireplace...I found awesome nutcracker stocking holders!!! (even better 50% off!)
A few days ago I had just put Ava down for the night. I looked up from the sink and everything was white! I love snow!!!

asdPappy got Ava a stuffed Penny...I don't think she was very impressed.

The other night David and I had a date night (dinner and christmas shopping) so Chris and Katie watched Ava for us...they took pictures for us. I'm just glad she came back alive Chris had her for a hour by himself!!! Although she did come home in only her jacket and a blanket...poor baby had a blowout with her diaper and I'm a bad momma and forgot to pack extra clothes

Ava and Chris played a bunch of xbox...I love how they have the same facial expression!
No Chris this is how you do it!!!

Tonight we finally got around to the tree! Ava was a big help! She put her own little shoes up
She loves the lights on the tree

One month pictures!

Here are some of Ava's 1 month pictures that a girl from work took for us. God has blessed us by placing Missy in my life. Not only for her picture taking ability but she blesses my life every time I work with her.

Ava wasn't her happiest during her photo shoot...but Missy was able to get some amazing shots! Hope y'all enjoy!

These are towards the end when she was done with this picture stuff
I love this picture!

My beautiful little family
This is another favorite of mine!

look how RED her hair is!!!
This past weekend Ava and I headed back to Irving for some girl time with my mom. For some reason since I got pregnant I have been so home sick for my mom. This weekend gave me some much needed mommy time and I feel like a different person! Thanks mom for a great weekend! Ava also went on her first scrapbooking crop...and of course loved it! We took some pictures but I'm waiting on Laura to send them to me...some how I made it there without my camera.

Hope y'all had a great Monday...David and I didn't get out of our pj's till 5:30 when we made our way up to see some patients at the hospital. It was a much needed lazy day with the hubby!

Cold weather!

The cold weather has hit! Ava and I had to run to the store to get stuff for dinner...this huge hat was the only girly one we had...but doesn't she look super cute!!! Oh how I love this little girl!

Ok so maybe she didn't like the hat as much and David and I did...hahaShe got over it pretty fast!
