Precious pictures



This is our first family picture. Olivia met us in the lobby of the hospital on my release date. It was very hard not having her in the hospital with us when Ava was born. I missed her terribly.
Liv looks so old and strong to me...it's like she is 21.






This is one of my favorite photos thus far.




The Smith Family is trying to identify what our new "normal" is. With pure exhaustion setting in with the "oh so many sleepless nights" I don't think we know what is "normal" right now. We are just in survival mode. Thank God for all the meals we are getting through my MOPS group.

We are enjoying watching Ava gain weight and move her head around more during tummy time. Olivia is very curious and already has taken a special liking to her sister. I love saying the word "sister" how wonderful that bond I pray will be when they get older. Brad likes to call Ava- Ava bean. I forgot what it was like to constantly smell like spit up on your body. You forget those things....She is so pretty and everything that were going thru is SO WORTH IT.

She has arrived











Ava Mairenn Smith was born on November 5th at 11:23 am. She weighed 7 pounds 10 oz and was 20 3/4 inches. We are all doing well. She is so pretty and has the most delicate little petite features. Brad and I are most excited about Olivia meeting her tomorrow. It's a wonderful feeling knowing that we are now a family of 4.

Happy Halloween 2009

Her favorite candy of the night were Starbursts. She had quite a few and that was the only candy she ate. Boy it was hard for me not to have any candy or those Halloween cupcakes we made the other night. I was excited to use all of our new Halloween stuff that we bought on clearance last year. Liv said she wanted to be a Scuba Diver next year!? She had Bitty all dressed up in her Halloween costume for days..but with all the excitement she forgot to bring her. It was a lot colder outside this year than last. I think the high with the sun was 53. It definitely was a crisp fall day.





Happy Halloween 2009

Here we are a family of "three"..it was cold out!
Initially, Liv wanted one of us to go up to the door with her, especially when the houses looked a little scary to her. Soon though she just went up by herself. She looked so cute, I am so glad she wore her whole costume.

This "grandma" as she calls it has been her favorite decoration when we drive in our neighborhood. She was glad to get to snuggle with her.


She thought this was a real gorilla...very hesitant at first to put candy in his pillow case. She loved handing out candy again this year.




Jackson was a big hit this year. Almost everyone commented on how cute he looked.
