I can not believe how fast the time has gone. This past month has been the greatest month of my life. I couldn’t have asked for a better baby! Ava is the most precious thing I have ever laid eyes on. Besides my husband, of course!
Ava weighs 8 pounds 8 ounces right now. She eats every 3 hours during the day and every 4 hours at night. Last night she slept for 5 hours straight and I had to wake her up to feed her ( I accidentally slept through my alarm. Oops). Ava is such a happy and content baby unless she is sleepy or hungry. Ava is still in her newborn diapers and some of her newborn outfits are still too big. She is a petite little thing. She is still sleeping in our room in her pack-n-play. I will probably move her to her room once she starts sleeping through the night.
Ava is starting to stay awake longer. After she eats, she usually stays awake for about an hour and then she gets really fussy and I have to rock her to sleep. She’s not really a fan of her swing yet. She can handle it for about 5 minutes then she is ready for something new. Her head is so strong and has really good control of it. She LOVES her baths. She always cries when we take her out. She also LOVES her paci.
I can’t imagine my life without Ava Drew. I honestly don’t remember life without her. I remember people saying that before I had Ava and I didn’t really “get it”. I mean, how can someone “forget” what their life was like a month ago? Well, I totally “get it” now. I know its hard to believe that someone could forget what it was like before a life came into your world but its totally real. We have been so blessed with such a good baby. I thank God so much for giving us the privilege of raising this child. She is a blessing.
