We had a good Easter, most of the kids were at my parents house which was nice. They all got to play and enjoy one another. We attempted pictures, but there were only a few that were good. Gage, my great-nephew, cried in all of them...don't know if he seen Daddy or what (he cries when he sees him - we think it's the white hair! ). Anyways...here are a few pics that were taken Easter Sunday. (The picture of Ava and Poppaw Frank - his 29th great-grandchild)
Ava Grace is doing wonderful! She's growing way too fast. It's hard to believe that she's almost 4 weeks old. Here's a list of things she's doing so far.
*She's still sleeping through the night...about a 6 hour stretch.
*She's a cuddlier.
*She likes baths and showers.
*She cries as soon as she poops...she doesn't like a dirty booty! =)
*She follows voices.
*She's more alert, making eye contact and smiling a lil'.
*I would guesstimate that she weighs 10 pounds already!
I'm so thankful that she has a big brother that loves her so much. He loves to give her kisses and hugs and wants to know where she's at all the time. He mentioned the other day that he couldn't wait for Ava to be big enough to play w/ him outside - I wish time would slow down just a lil' bit for her to be a baby longer. Jack has grown up way too fast...he'll be 7 in the fall =(. But that's the way things are and we have to try to endulge in our daily lives and try to capture whatever we can because we cannot get the past back. I try to get a picture daily so that when I look back, I can remember how my children were growing up. The picture is now, but just wait...in a few months/years, these 2 are gonna be fighting for some crazy reason and I'll come back to this picture and remember how things used to be.
