5 weeks old already!

It's hard to believe that Ava has been here for over a month now. I feel like we've learned so much the last 5 weeks - most importantly, we've had the chance to get to know Ava, and learn about her personality and how she expresses herself.

Most of you know the stats on her, but as a reminder, Ava joined us on Wednesday, June 18 at 1:59a.m. She was 7lbs, 12oz, and 20.5". At her 1 month appointment last week, she was growing well: 8lbs, 13.5oz, 21.5". She took her 2nd Hepatitis B shot like a pro - but it broke my heart to hear her cry.

Also, our appointment with the cardiologist at Childrens turned out good. They did an EKG and her murmur is an innocent one. We will go back when she's 6 months to make sure that everything is still ok. Whew - talk about two worried parents!

She's becoming more interactive now - she's started to coo, grunt (that's my favorite), and there is definite tracking of objects. Check out this video - I was playing around with our new camcorder, and I just happened to capture a smile. And I don't think it's gas this time!

Have a great day!
