Sick Baby Blues

Well, Ava had her first "sick-baby" visit to the doctor. She has had a stomach bug since Wednesday. The doctor seems to think it will just run its course, but as a parent, you want your baby to feel better now. She seems to be getting better today, though. She has kept a smile through it all. She is such a happy baby. She weighs 11 lbs.
This is my weekend to work, so I am away from her 13 hours on Saturday and Sunday. In that short amount of time, she changes so much. She has found her hands (though she seems to love looking and waving her right hand more). Last night when I got home she was in her swing. She loves her swing. Last night I could have watched her in it forever. She has noticed the butterfly mobile above it before. But last night she was watching the butterflies so closely, laughing, and "talking" to them. It's little moments like this that swell your heart so big with love you think it may burst! I promise to post a picture of it soon. We are still on dial up and uploading pics is a long process.


  1. I hope your sweet baby girl feels better soon.

  2. Ema was sick while in we were in Vietnam. It broke our heart to see her sick! I wished everyday it were me or Kirk instead of her. It's funny how while they are sick they never show it, but as their parents, our heart breaks for them! Hope sweet Ava gets to feeling better soon!

  3. She probably got it from my children. I am SORRY Ava!!!! Your cousins did not mean to share their wonderful germs!!! We hope you feel better soon!!!
