It's All About Ava!

Here are some new pics for you to enjoy. Isn't she just precious? And her momma is so pretty.

It seems like Ava is changing so much these days. She is eating stage2 foods very well, not needing as much formula, and sleeps at night with just a quick wakeup for a drink. Not bad, considering. The poor baby is trying so hard to learn to crawl, but she just can't get it yet. Still not much to report on her language skills. Again, she is working on it. Her personality, however, is in full bloom! She is so funny. She certainly loves her people, especially her mommy. But let's face it...what's not to love?

I have had a such an aversion to writing lately. I think part of it is reading all those list-serv messages depresses me so much that I don't even want to THINK about Williams Syndrome. I prefer to live in my own delusional world where Ava is perfect. When I think about all the things that are "wrong" this pervasive sadness takes over and then I have a hard time shaking it off. And I am only a grandma; I can't imagine what it would be like if I were the parent and had to take on such overwhelming responsibility. I applaud all of you! Anyway, I love all of you so don't give up on me yet!
