I can't believe that tomorrow Ava will already be one month old! It seems like we have had her forever..and at the same time like just yesterday we were in the hospital waiting for her to get here. We are looking forward to tomorrow when Shannon and the kids will be here!! She loves being held all the time and whenever we are with family she is not put down for one second! But she is not spoiled or anything... :) We hope to go hiking or something fun outside so we will have to try out her new carrier. We also went to Park City last weekend and she had her first stroller ride. She is such a good baby and usually sleeps through car rides or stroller rides or shopping cart rides.
We got our pictures back from Ava's newborn photoshoot yesterday and I have spent so much time looking at them. I can't believe how precious she is. I know I'm her mom and I obviously think she is the cutest baby around, but our friend did a really good job making her look even more beautiful! I'm only posting a few because I just finished her birth announcment and I wanted some of them to be new!
Ava started smiling this week. Right when she wakes up she is so happy and we can usually get a few big grins out of her. It's so cute to see her whole face light up and her dimples come out. I can't wait until it happens more often.
I'm not sure how to rotate this video, so you will have to watch it sideways!
Other than that, nothing else has changed. She is getting better at being awake during the day and she does not like it when I leave her alone to clean the house or do the dishes. She is so fun and I love being a mom....except for the night time feedings...I could do without those for sure!
Here are a few more random phone pictures from this week....
