5 Weeks Old

I cannot believe how fast the time is going by. I start work in one week. Noooo! But I will only have 4 and a half weeks of school left and then I will be off the entire summer. We received Ava's newborn photos this week. They are amazing! Ava has changed so much from even these pictures. She has already outgrown her newborn onesies and sleepers. We have started to wear all of our new 0-3 month old clothes. I think we have worn a new outfit almost every day this week. We even blew out a diaper on 2 of our new outfits. The blowouts continue to be funny especially when you have someone else to laugh with you. At 3am... it's not so funny. She has had a nice sleeping pattern this last week; sleeping 5 hours then waking up for a diaper change and to eat. She then goes right back to sleep for 3 hours and wakes up between 5 and 6 am again. One night she slept 7 hours! I had to check for breathing several times. Ava also went to 2 track meets this week. She even sleeps through the starting gun. My little trackster!
Ava also celebrated her first Easter last weekend. She got 2 new outfits and a new rattle from the Easter Bunny. He even brought her some chocolates and Jelly Beans for Mommy and Daddy. At Gigi's she got some money, new outfits, and stuffed animals. What a lucky gal. We took tons of pictures of her in her Easter Basket surrounded by eggs. It was so cute. She is gaining more neck control although she still smacks herself in the face with her wild arms. Her diaper rash has gotten a lot better and is almost healed up and her hair continues to get longer (but only in the back). Mommy and Daddy are so in love with her and when we talk she will turn her head to find us. She also seems to be able to see a bit further too. Ava is pretty amazing and each new day we find her doing something new and adorable. Her smile is so infectious and even in the middle of the night you cannot help but smile back at this little miracle. Parenthood thus far has been nothing but blessings!
