Isn't Ava getting to be a big girl? She has changed so much recently.
Healthwise, Ava is doing exceptionally well. Her last cardio visit was a rousing success. In fact, the doctor feels that only yearly visits are necessary. Ava's SVAS is so mild that surgical intervention will probably NEVER be necessary. Isn't that great news?
Ava's language skills are really improving. Granted, it is still hard for others to understand what she is saying, but we can decipher many, if not most, of the things she says. When she's hungry, she tells you. If she is tired, she tells you. Ask her if she is cute, and the answer is "Totally, duh!"
Ava's true passion is music. That child starts singing the minute she awakes in the morning, and she doesn't stop. It amazes me how many songs she knows. She woke me up Sunday morning with a big, smacking kiss and her rendition of the Barney song...I love you, you love me. What a sweetheart she is.
