Can you believe it has been 3 weeks already since Ava was born!? It is nuts...I feel like I just walked out of the hospital and into our car with her thinking, "Holy cow, we are parents now and are taking this new little person home with us...forever!"
Here is some of the last 2 weeks...
Sarah and her boyfriend, Ray, came down to visit Ava. We asked Sarah to be Ava's Godmother! (Sidenote: they share the same birthday :) November 2nd. How sweet <3
Ali came to visit Ava too! She booked her ticket months ago to be here 1 week after her due date in hopes of meeting the little one right after she was born. Since Ali lives in Chicago now I had a great time being able to catch up with my best friend.
Our friend, Zach, came to visit Ava this same weekend....He literally wouldn't let go of her. Sarah asked him at one point if she could hold Ava again because she lives in Jacksonville and won't get to see her as much as he will and he never handed her over to Sarah. haha. I love this picture of him holding her hand.
(Do you see a pattern here? Ava gets all the visitors now :)
Last Sunday my mom told me that she would stay at our house with Ava so Mark and I could get out. (More like so I could get out. I had not been outside (minus walks in our neighborhood with Ava) in two weeks at this point. Mark and I decided to head toward Las Olas and ended up getting lucky having my friends already hanging out down there! We ended up going to Royal Pig and having some wine with them. It was the first time seeing people in public without a big belly! It was a great time.
This is Ava and I sending Mark an afternoon picture of us on one of our daily strolls. We had to make a pit stop on a bench because she was getting hungry at one point.
Ava after a bath- sporting her mohawk that I love to give her.
Today, my friends Megan Nolan and Lauren MacDonald came by to see Ava. So happy to catch up with them and introduce them to the little one.
And that's all, folks. Our life is a little slower and quieter now. Until Ava is about 6 weeks, I am keeping her at our house as the doctor recommended. As of now- Ava eats, sleeps, poops... and REPEAT. haha
I can now say that I am adjusted to mommy life. The first week and a half we ROUGH. Getting adjusted to new 3 hour increment sleep cycles for feedings is not easy. But I am I learning how to slow down and take it easy on myself. (I am going to sign off now because I hear Ava waking up and grunting - my cue to get ready to feed her.)
Tomorrow is the long awaited FSU v UF game! GO NOLES!!! Hope everyone enjoys their Gameday!
