Ava Beth Greer

Just taking her in!!
She wasn't quite ready to open those sweet eyes...

Our niece is here! And she is perfect! Ava arrived early this morning, around 1:21 a.m. Both mother and baby are doing great! She weighed 7 lbs 12 oz. I look at her and think she looks so tiny! I also look at her and think, "Wow- there is one in my belly too!" Seeing and holding Ava has made Adam and I both anxious to meet our little bundle come this fall. We are so happy for Matt & Lindsey and wish them so much love over the next few weeks as they adjust to parenthood. It is such a blessing!

Adam and I spent this past weekend in Houston to visit my dad. He is still in the hospital at MD Anderson. He is doing a little better each day. He had a pretty rough weekend while we were there but it was so great to see him. I spent alot of time with him in his small room. He has been on isolation so he hasn't been able to leave his room. I enjoyed being with him so much.

A great plus to the weekend was finding out that Lindy (my cousin) and her husband Josh were going to drive from Baton Rogue to visit also. We had so much fun catching up with them! Lindy is in vet school at LSU. She and Dad talked "animal medicine" alot! I think he enjoyed that! It was a great weekend spent with family! The picture is from our wonderful dinner that Lynda treated us all too! It was yummy!

P.S. I "stole" this pic from Lindy. She was the good one who remembered to capture the moment!! Thanks Linnie!!

Oh Baby!!

We had our monthly OB visit today. Everything is progressing wonderfully. The baby's heartbeat was in the 160s. I have even gained back some of the weight I lost during the first trimester! We were crossing our fingers for an ultrasound today in hopes of maybe finding out the sex, but there were no ultrasounds. I guess that is better just so we can be more certain when they do tell us. When is that you may ask??? APRIL 20!!! In exactly 4 weeks from today and we are so excited to find out! I will be 15 weeks tomorrow and I am feeling so much better. I think I can handle this trimester! Stay tuned for more baby news!!!
