Hello Ava fans! Life is going spectacular for Ava! We are doing more and more exciting things as a family. This might sound odd to many, but I can count on one hand how many times Ava has been to the park in her three and a half years. She has needed to be extremely protected from the “outside” world. Lately though I’ve put my fears aside so that she can LIVE and enjoy being a three year old little darling! She is living it up! The park is her favorite place now. Our motto now, “So many parks, so little time!”
This has got to be one of my favorites! Her and swings go hand in hand.
Brian, Ava and I in the park, near this beautiful tree. Lexis and Emeline were at Tae Kwan Do class. I’m hoping to get a family picture soon. Our weather has been so wonderful!
How cute is she?
Ava had a hearing test today. She did so good that the lady told us if everyone did as good as Ava she would have the easiest job in the world. She sat there very still and was very patient. I have a partial hearing loss (since birth) so I know the tests very well. :)
Next we went to her ear doctor. He told us she passed the hearing test and her ears looked great. He wants to keep testing her every six months as we have been doing because her left ear was slightly different. We are unsure if this will be “an issue” but we’ll keep our eyes and ears on it!
The reason for the suspicion of a hearing loss is due to the many antibiotics and medicines she has had from birth to present because of complications with her birth defect, Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. It adds to her chances since I also have a hearing loss. So far though none of the girls have any hearing issues.
She is growing so big as you can see. She just climbs up in the chair and waits for Dr. Lyons to come in. He is very animated and she likes him.
Naturally after she did so good I had to reward her by going to the park for a picnic and play time. See how excited she looks after I told her she must eat first!
And off she goes…..
She is not afraid of the big slides….unless they have a roof over them then she wants nothing to do with them. Otherwise, yes she goes down and has little worry. I again put aside my worries as well. I’m so happy she can be a little monkey.
Walking? No she runs everywhere.
I couldn’t resist snapping a few extra today. It was a gorgeous 75 degrees out!
Loved ALL these beautiful little pink flowers. It almost looked like snow. I’m in awe of God’s magnificent handiwork. I love Spring!
Thanks for stopping by and keep saying prayers that Ava remains healthy. We are so Blessed and know how lucky we are to have Ava. She has come so far!
