<3This little girl has stolen our hearts <3

Well tonight Des and i were sitting around and talking and making funny faces at little Ava. Well we were laughing at a face she was making and she just started giggling!!! she has never done that before!!! it was so sweet i started crying! I love when she does all her little things!!!! everything she does is so cute and we love it! I could not believe that she laughed tonight. i was not expecting her to laugh for a little while longer! Des was the first one to make her laugh. I was so excited! this is the reason i want to be a stay at home mom! I can't bare to have someone else hear her first word. someone who doesn't care about the fact that its her first word or someone see her do anything that she has never done before like lift herself up! or walk! I could not stand to have someone else see it before me!

Also today she was sitting on my lap and she was resting on my knees and she lifted up her head and shoulders and sat up somewhat in my lap! she is getting so strong. They don't do that stuff until three and a half four months!!!! it seems like she is learning everything so fast! she is one smart little girl! it is so amazing how much the little things she does impress me. they are big things to me but when i was babysitting or growing up with my brothers it didn't seem like such a big deal but its our little girl and now i know how parents feel when their children do the little things and how amazed they are that they do them! I can't wait for all of my wonderful friends who are pregnant to finally get to enjoy that. One of them just had her little boy the other day and i am so happy for her!!! and there are two more who are expecting and i can't wait for them to have there little bundles of joy! Lisa and Belinda!!! Can't wait to meet your little ones!!!!

And i can't wait for all of these wonderful experiences you guys will have!!! they are so special!

More from her two month check-up and a few more pictures!

one of her cute little smiles. She smiles all the time!!! she is always smiling when she wakes up from her naps and also when she wakes up in the morning.

this is her legs after her shots. I felt so bad and helpless when they were giving her the shots. it is the worst feeling as a mother. knowing they don't know why all this is happening to them and not being able to take the shots for them. I wished more than anything i could take her place. but i did hold on to her for a long time after and tried to soothe her! but i still feel horrible because i can't explain it to her.

Little Ava is two months old...

Well today was Ava's two month check-up was today! she was very talkative this morning and smiling. I felt so bad because i was taking her to get her shots today :( she was so happy and i hated to take her it just broke my heart.

I took some pictures right before we left for the appointment. she is such a cute little girl!!!

This is her waiting for the doctor. she was playing on her belly!!! we got bored waiting for the doctor. she was cooing and trying to scoot across the table. she got about half way before the doctor came it.

this is not the best picture but the doctor came in and she kept lifting her head up and the doctor said that she is holding her head up at a level that most 4 month old do! she is such an over achiever!!! the doctor also said that if we had a bumbo (the little chair they sit up in) that we could go ahead and use it becasue she is at a four month old level and it will be great practice for her!!!!
She is now 11lbs 8oz. which puts her in the 49th percentile. her head circumference is 15 1/2 which is also the 49th percentile. and her height is 23 3/4th which is in the 81st percentile. she is growing so fast! time is flying. she got her vaccines today. she got her first dose of DTP (Diphtheria Tetanus & Pertussis), Pneumococcal Conjugate, Hib (Haemophilus Influenzae Type B), and Rotavirus. At least one of those was not a shot it was an oral one. so she had one that tasted good!

I am giving her childrens tylonal every 4-6 hours because when i had these shots i ended up with a fever of 105.0 so they told me to keep her on it for 24 hours so she can have a good chance of not getting one. but i am still monitoring it. It kind of makes me nervous!

Well all in all she is a very healthy wonderful little girl who is very much an over achiever!!!! which works for us!!! we just love her so much it would not matter what she was doing!

2 Months... where has the time gone???

I can't believe our little girl is now two months old. I am so in love with this little angel!

Man how the time has flown by! Tonight we were sitting on the bed and she was sitting propped up on my lets and she lifted her head up and looked all around. but it was more than just her head she is lifting her shoulders with it! i am so amazed at how much she is doing. she is gaining control of her motions!!! everyone is so amazed at her and the fact that she is only two months and is already doing all of these things.


1.) has complete control of her head and has from about 5 days old. But it is very strong now.

2.) is spending a lot of time on her tummy and she has almost all the time got her head to a 90 degree angle.

3.) actually can get from one end to the other in a short time on her tummy

4.) is cooing and making so many sounds.

5.) is mimicking me with my ohhhh's and ahhh's (i uploaded a few videos of her doing this)

6) is razzing a lot. I mean i know they are not suppose to do that until about 4 months but she is blowing tons of bubbles. weather they are for real or just because she has a lot of spit.

7.) can stay sitting up without falling when leaned up against something (she does not fall to one side or another)

8.) she rolls over almost everytime i put her in her playpen for a little while!

9.) she is smiling in response to actions and smiles and is almost laughing. she is trying but not quite there!

our little girl is growing up so fast! i can't believe how fast time is flying. i wish it would slow down.

she is the most wonderful blessing and i could not have prayed for anything better. I can't imagine our lives without her! I actually ended up not going back to work because i could not bear to leave her for one second and if i had gone back to work i would have been working for insurance and also to pay for daycare and it did not seem worth it. I can't imagine someone else who is not her family hearing her first words and not even care. it would break my heart!!!

well i can't believe it but our little Ava is two months old!

We thank the Lord everyday for this wonderful blessing!!!! the pictures are from her birth then one month old then two months old!!!

Smart little girl!!

Ava is so smart! she is mimicking me all the time! she is making or trying to make the sounds that i make! and she makes the faces i make! its so cute! she is also moving on from just saying vowels and putting g's at the end. she is suppose to start putting g's, n's, m's at the front of the vowel sounds at the end or middle of three months. She is already starting that!

today i was getting ready this afternoon and i was listening to music and she was kicking and moving her hands all over when the music was on and she was somewhat still when the songs were done. it was so cute she was kicking and smiling.

she is almost laughing too! man i can't wait for that! everytime she smiles it almost comes out! she is so cute!!

everytime she gets up from a nap she is all smiles and very talkative.

I took a few pictures of her in a cute little outfit from the tricia lewis! it is such a beautiful little outfit!

Ava is such a wonderful little girl!!!

I was reading the baby book today and i was on the chapter of the second month which we are in. from February 22 till March 22. She has done most of the things that they say might happen in the second month.

She is cooing A LOT. She loves to talk back and mimic me and Des when we make sounds. we say OHHH and she opens her mouth and tries to say it when we do. It is so cute! sometimes she is able to make the same sound we are. She is so smart. I make a fish face at her and make a kissy noise and just smiles at me. And the she moves her lips around almost like she is trying to make the face i am making! I spend so much time just talking to her.

She is also loving her tummy time. she can lift her head mostly at a 45 Degree angle but sometimes she gets all the way up about 90 degrees. while she is on her tummy she coos the whole time and is making the crawling movements. though she has not quite put the hands and feet together yet i don't think it will take her long at all. she seems to be able to scoot from one end of the blanket to the other in no time. she is quite good at it. I will have to make a video of her sometime and post it.

she is starting to grab at things as well. she is grabbing her passy from her mouth and also a few times it has fallen out and she has just barely pushed it back in. (it was not all the way out of her mouth) she is looking at the mobile on her swing and paying attention to it and smiling at it. she loves the little bears.

She also found her feet today she was so amazed at them. She just stared at them for a while and was making little faces at them and grabbing for them. I know that she will rediscover them almost everyday. But it is fun to see her when she realizes something is attached to her.

we also spend some time in front of the mirror. she loves to look in the mirror. she has not reached out yet and tried to touch it but i am thinking soon she will. but she is just amazed with the mirror.

What my days are like with my little angel

well.... she wakes me up about 6:00 am. which is so nice because she sleeps from 11:00 pm till then. So i get a great night sleep as does des and Ava. Then I feed her and she most of the time falls asleep right after her 6 am feeding. Then Des wakes up an hour later and i have gone back to sleep if i can (most of the time i can :) ) Then Des leaves for work around 7:45 and i have my alarm set for 8:30 am. I usually get up and try to eat something. Then do a few things around the house. Then she wakes up anywhere from 9:45 to 10:30 and she eats and actually stays awake with me and we sit on the right side of the couch and talk all morning and laugh and play!!! then around 12:30 she wants to eat again. and so i feed her and she dozes off for about 30 minutes while i try to eat lunch! when she wakes up we play again untill about 4:00 and she eats again and goes down for about an hour nap. She usually is awake when her daddy gets home so he can play with her too!!!!

This is the best job in the world. I would not trade it for anything. I am slowly learing how to do things with her in my hands so i get some more things done in a day!!!!

I have a few more pictures but i have not put them on the computer yet so i will update later when she is asleep again!!!

wow how the time flies

wow i can't believe how fast the time has gone. I can't believe that on the 22 of march Ava will be two months old! She is already growing up so fast!

I went to the doctor the other day for her and she weighed 9lbs 11 oz. they were very happy with her progress.

I have been home with her everyday so far and i love it. i can't wait till i can stay home with her for good. I am still trying to figure out exactly how to leave the house for more than two hours without her getting fussy. Everything is so spread out here that it takes me two hours to run two errands. So i don't get much done.

But i am learning. I am also learning how to do things around the house with her in my arms. Changing out the laundry etc.

she now has full control of her neck! she likes to just look at everything. ceiling fans and pictures are her favorite. she gets her tummy time everyday! she is kicking her legs all over the place and trying to crawl. It is so cute!!! She has rolled over in her crib a few times but not a whole lot. But more and more. She is making the cutest noises. We call them Ava words!!! they are so cute!
