4 Month Update w/ LOTS of Pictures!!

Ava is getting SOOO big! She is growing like a weed, and her personality is coming through more and more. It has been a while since I updated, and for that I am sorry. Our family was dealing w/ my grandmother's death, traveling to visit my uncle who had open heart surgery, and now Foster's grandmother was put on Hospice, and is not expected to be with us much longer. All the while, Foster's work schedule has become more demanding, and Ava and I have be getting involved with Jazzercise, play dates with old friends, and I have been attempting to market and expand my photography.

Ava went in for her 4 month appointment on the 15th. She is 14lbs13oz, and 25 inches long! She is in the 75% for both height and weight, but the doctor said she is perfectly proportionate, so she is not the least bit worried. I am tall (5'9") and expects she will be as well.

She still has not rolled from belly to back, but that is because she is content on her belly and has fun kicking her legs. I wouldn't be surprised if she starts crawling before she rolls. She comes CLOSE to rolling from back to belly, but not quite. She is grabbing and "talking" and just getting sooo interactive. It blows me away how at this young of an age she has such a little personality. She knows what she wants, and although a content baby, if she wants something, she lets you know she wants it NOW.

Ava was blessed enough to meet her great grand mother before she goes to heaven, and I was blessed to capture some pictures of it.

Although she won't remember, I am happy we were able to get these because we can show her in the future and tell her about her great grandmother.

She also got to meet some of her 3rd cousins (I think...they are MY cousins kids). The boys LOVED hanging out with Ava, and wanted to help as much as possible!

I got to spend some quality time with my cousin "Pixel" who is also a photographer and we talked photography, and made arrangements to attend two really exciting events in the next couple of months.

Ava got her first taste of rice cereal at 4 months, and it was really cute!


I think she liked the taste of the bib more than the cereal! lol
And of COURSE i have taken TONS of pictures of her!
