Ava is 1 Month Old...already....

Ava is one month old.  I can't believe how time flies.  Everyone told me that you blink and they grow so fast...and they were all so right.  It makes me sad to see her no longer fitting in her newborn clothes.  However, I have enjoyed watching her experience new things.   She is weighing in at 10 lbs. and 6.5 oz. and she is in the 98th percentile in height.  She is just getting so big.  She is already wearing some 3 month old clothing...CRAZY!  She is a very sweet baby.  She loves to snuggle and we have lots of snuggle time at night. She is still sleeping in the pack n play next to my bed at night.  She sleeps in about 4-5 hour stretches most nights.  She smiles a lot more now.  Her smiles at me seem purposeful, like she is attempting to communicate or mimic me.  She is holding her head up very well, but she has no control on her forward head movement..  She bonks me on the head a lot.  She likes to look around and be wide awake at night and wants to give mommy and daddy cute little faces. 

We feel so blessed to have this little girl in our lives.  God is good and produces amazing things!
