Ava got into the band aids today and my what an artist she became. I had to catch it in video so you all could see her at work!
All is well with Ava. She is growing into quite the little lady. I took her to an appointment last Tuesday in St. Louis to check on her arm. There are a few things we can do to help the appearance of her burn. While we were there I became very ill and we ended up leaving before her appointment was fully over. My Mother took me to the ER because I couldn’t get a handle on the pain in my lower right side and back. Long story short I had a kidney stone. I thought the pain was worse than being in labor. So glad that is over. I had to learn lots of patience that day…:) Bless my Mother’s heart for being put in that unpleasant situation. God showed Himself that day, in the fact that as soon as we left Ava’s appointment she fell fast asleep. She never saw me suffer and she was much less likely to have gotten any germs in the ER as my Mom held her the entire time. She then called my brother and he came and took her out of there. Thank God for Morphine! It helped me through that day.
We also went to a baby shower while visiting my sister in St. Louis. Ava had fun time. Here are a few pictures of her at the shower.
Thanks to my sister Amanda for taking this next picture of Ava and I!
And one of my favorites is this next one.
I also took some pictures of my brother’s girlfriend, Amber. I hope she doesn’t mind I post a few. I’m so excited my brother will experience parenthood. It is a wonderful thing!
They are naming him Christian. So of course I had to spell out his beautiful name in blocks!
This one is so precious.
So often we take our health and family for granted. Those are the two most important things in our life, besides our relationship with God, that matter so deeply. Tonight believe that God has a plan and ask Him to cleanse your heart so you can enjoy life to the fullest. He holds the future. Be strong enough to share with Him your deepest desires and your hard aches for He cares.
Thanks for supporting our family!
