She's Here!

Ava Elizabeth was born on Monday, October 2 at 3:18. She weighed a full two pounds more than Isabella at 7 lbs, 12 oz and is 19 1/2 long. I can't get over her chunky cheeks!

















She is perfectly healthy and sleeps like an angel. She took to nursing immediately which is a relief. Isabella loooooooves her little sister and likes to kiss her...alot. As well as pat her back a little too enthusiastically. But we're working on being more gentle :)





















I am healing well with the help of my little friend, Vicodin. Doesn't matter how it is spelled because it still ROCKS.

Needless to say, my husband and I are elated with the new addition to our family. You really do find that your heart grows with more love for each child!

I'll post more later. Ava's placed an order for lunch.

Well, congratulations. She is just beautiful. I love the picture of you and your girls!! And I am so glad nursing is going well for you!

Awww how sweet...ahava also loves to pat adira on the back, too..she sits between adira and her tigger doll and pats them both. I think "be gentle!" is the most spoken phrase in our house. Enjoy it!

I'm so thrilled for you all. Ava looks adorable and I'm so glad Isabella is taking to her so well.

YEAH!!!!
The little puffy cheeks are the cutest ever!
I like puffy babies because then I don't feel like I'm going to break them when I hold them. They have enough padding that it won't hurt them to get loved on! :)
Congratulations!

Dude. Are you allowed to look that beautiful in the hospital? I mean: hello! You look gorgeous!

Also, Ava is a cutie pie. I can see where she gets it from.

Awww...you're sweet, Jes! Beautifully drugged and numb. That was me! :)

For anyone who saw Bella as an infant, Ava looks EXACTLY like her! The only difference is maybe Ava's nose is a wee bit rounder, but I'm sure her face will continue to change as days go on.
