First Time Sweet Potato

Ava is a lucky girl, her momma goes above and beyond when it comes to all aspects of being healthy. Today Christine made fresh homemade organic sweet potato in the Baby Cuisinart today and Ava got to try her first veggie. We can’t wait to introduce her to all kinds of yummy veggies and we both hope she loves them all like us.

5 months

Ava is 5 months today! Time has moved so quickly!

Ava has had a busy past few weeks. Grandpa Lim came into town and met her for the first time. The smile that Ava brought to grandpa’s face made the room shine!
We celebrated Grandpa Lim’s 73rd birthday. He had two parties. One at home and the other at Zed 451where Ava had another first. Both Grandpa Hoob and Lim were there to love her. The two smiles that Ava brought to their faces was so bright that it light up the whole restaurant!
Auntie Amy and Uncle Bryce also came into town. They couldn’t stop saying how cute Ava was and how much she had grown. Auntie Amy carried Ava in the Ergo for two hours, so she could nap peacefully. The fun doesn’t stop here.
Auntie Betsy is coming tomorrow to celebrate Christmas! Also, Ava’s cousins, Evan and Erin, are coming in on Friday. This will be the first time the cousins will be meeting!

Chrismukkah 2012

The holidays are upon on us and Ava is a lucky girl that gets to celebrate Hanukkah and Christmas. We lit the candles last night for the 1st night of Hanukkah and today we visited Santa. We look at Ava every single day and we both smile and mention how blessed we are with our perfect angel. Every day is smiles and happiness with our little Ava angel.

Ava’s 1st Bites

We have been waiting patiently and very excited to start giving Ava something to eat besides breast milk. The doctor gave us the go ahead this week at the 4 month visit. Christine prepared some organic steel cut oatmeal and we gave Ava a few small bites. Very exciting and cute, we can’t wait to share and prepare more food for her. We expect to turn her into a good healthy eater like her parents.

Ava’s First Thanksgiving

We spent Ava’s first Thanksgiving with nana and papa. We had a wonderful spread of food! We ate, laughed, drank, talked about old traditions and were loving Ava.

Over the past week, Ava began making motor boat sounds with her lips and spit. This became the “ba” sound, which emerged two days ago. We are elated that she is starting to blend a consonant and a vowel!
Go Ava!

Sleeping Ava

As Dave and I watch Ava sleep, we whisper to each other “What a perfect baby.” Even when Ava sleeps, we cannot stop gazing at her.
Others have told us that there is no love like the love you have for your child. We have found this phrase to be absolutely true. We say it everyday!

The Weather has Turned

Brrrr! The weather has turned cold. It was in the 60’s yesterday and now is in the 30’s. Thank goodness Ava has her winter gear…thanks to auntie Amy!

Tummy Time

What a great day! Ava saw her reflection today during tummy time and gave herself a great big smile. This was the first time she saw her adorable face.

Dave and I were thrilled that we captured this moment together.

Another first for Ava is her ability to roll from her back to her side. It’s only a matter of time before she rolls to her tummy. We will be thrilled when that happens.

Everyday is an adventure with Ava!

Prasino with Auntie Amy

Auntie Amy is in town for a visit and an interview. She has been cuddling with Ava and Hoober. She is sharing her love!
Ava turned 100 days old last week. It is a milestone in the Korean tradition.

She has become very vocal and is intrigued by all things around her. Ava enjoys napping while out on our excursions.

Can’t wait to see what happens in another month!

Halloween

Ava went to a Halloween birthday party last week. She went as a piece of sushi.
Ava has found her hands during the last few weeks and cannot get enough of them! It’s really cute when she misses them and ends up sucking on her wrists.

12 weeks!!!!

Ava is 12 weeks and changing every day. Ava has become quite the Chatty Cathy and tries talking all day long. She is sleeping better and also sitting alone in the bouncy chair and entertaining herself for 5-15 minutes. We are enjoying every moment and taking tons of pictures. Family came over this past Saturday for chili and Ava got to hang with her cousin Jasmine.

Check out this video of Ava talking up a storm.

Super Ava

Everyday Ava is changing and growing. We are loving every little new thing she is doing from eye contact to grabbing items and reaching for things. She even is rolling over way ahead of schedule and we love it.

Happy Ava

Every day Ava is changing and becoming more interactive and smiley and just a incredible joy. We have plenty of small hardships but the entire experience of becoming new parents has been amazing… Ava is making more and more eye contact and smiling and even started reaching for things. Ava actually rolled over yesterday during tummy time and I can’t wait to catch it on video. We are both loving every moment of this and looking forward to many milestones.
