Due Date

Where does the time go? Our precious girl is almost 2 weeks old. Today was her due date and it's hard to believe we've already had her for two weeks. This week has been long but not too bad. Zach went back to school on Tuesday so Ava and I have been working on making it on our own. We did cheat a little though and haven't been completely on our own. On Tuesday my mom came and picked us up and we went to her house. I slept in my old room and she watched Ava for a couple of hours. Wednesday I had to go to the mall to get some vitamins at GNC and Mom offered to watch her so that I wouldn't have to take her in. So we've had a little help. Today we were completely on our own and we made it just fine. We even survived a trip to the pediatrician. For all my worries with Ava's eating, she is a little piggy - she gained 13.5 ounces in a little over a week! She now weighs 7 lbs 15 oz so she's 4 oz heavier than her birth weight, so I shouldn't be too worried about her anymore. She seems to be doing just fine. I've heard that babies who are early sometimes are a little slow at waking up and that around their due date they turn into a completely different baby. I haven't seen that with our girl yet but I'm waiting. I"m really trying to soak up my time with her and I love the moments we get to spend together. She makes a lot of hilarious faces and I'm trying to capture them on camera because I know they won't last forever! We have our moments, but she really is a good baby. She only cries if she wants/needs something and she is generally happy. I hope that sweet disposition stays the same! I don't have a whole lot of time to post pictures tonight but I will post one. Last weekend, Jon and Emily came and took pictures of Miss Ava. It was quite the session and I think we had about 5 or 6 potty accidents in the course of pictures without a diaper! She even got her daddy very wet in one of the last shots! Anyway, here is one of the pictures we've gotten to preview. I adore this picture and cannot wait to see the rest!
