Overdue Update

Ava Mae is growing up.

Ht: 36.5 inches

Wt: 27 lbs, 2 ounces

She is at the 9th percentile for weight, and the 24th percentile for height. On the regular chart, not the WS chart.

Her speech is coming along, slowly but surely. She is developing a nice little vocabulary. Mamma, Bampa, cheese, keys, ball, eat, hungry, thirsty, in, on, yes, no, play, Justin, uncle, Lizzy, Stacy, and on and on. She loves Hannah Montana, Lawrence Welk (no kidding!), and music. Her favorite character is Barman, also known as Barney!

Healthwise, Ava has had a fairly uneventful winter. She is in school now, five mornings a week, which has exposed her to lots of new germs, but remarkably she has made it through with just a few viruses that she has been able to fight off. No hospitalizations, thank goodness.

Ava is just a little ray of sunshine. I hope to have some new pictures to post soon, and I promise I will! I have been very remiss in my blogging. It's been a long, depressing winter and my energy levels have been low. Hopefully spring will recharge my batteries so I can feel human again.

Happy Easter, everyone!
