2 Months Old
Life with a newborn, although very uneventful, is very busy! Finding time in betwen feedings and naps to do things you need to do like laundry, scrubbing the bathroom, and blogging, is harder than I thought! So here is a very belated post....but to make up for it, I'll add extra pictures!
Ava is doing so good. She is smiling, laughing sometimes, cooing and talking, and is such a sweet girl. She is for the most part a really happy baby unless she is hungry. There is nothing like seeing her smile when she recognizes you...pretty sure it's the best thing in the world. She loves to stare at the clock on our family room wall and is completely mesmorized by it! She also likes baths now and doesn't cry when I give her one. We were able to bless her this past week with both sides of the family there and it was great... minus the part where she cried through the whole thing! But Bret gave a beautiful blessing and overall it was a perfect night shared with friends and family!
Carissa and Nate are moving to Utah! YEA!!!! I can't even tell you how thrilled I was when I heard the news! Ava is going to love living close to her Aunt and Uncle and I'm SOOO excited to have my cooking/crafting buddy so close! We are getting ready for a trip to California in a month and I can't wait to go to Disneyland, San Diego, and Vegas! I really need a vacation.... hopefully driving with Ava will be easy...
Our house is on it's way! They started digging last week and the foundation was poured yesterday. Only a few more months and we will be in it! Just in time for Christmas. It will be so wonderful to be minutes from Bret's office (and the new outlet mall! Wahoo!!) I am SO excited to be in a home again, organized, and settled. The past little while has been so crazy with moving several times, juggling things in the storage unit, moving the scrubs business all over the place, and hoping to get to build. I am so glad limbo is finally over and we can get settled in our new neighborhood and ward.
Life is good... Ava is healthy and beautiful, Bret enjoys his job, and I love being a mom! We couldn't ask for more :) Here are pictures!
