Day Forty-Three

All about Ava...

Ava is still teething but at least her fever is down to a much more manageable number for Mommy.  Let's face it, when your kid is running a high fever you don't get much sleep.  I kept waking up to check on her, take her temp, and administer Motrin when necessary.  With Ava not feeling well and the snow that we have had I just haven't been able to put much effort or attention into Valentines Day.  Ava and I may work on a little project tomorrow if Daddy sleeps in.

This time of the year is extra special because it was right after Valentines Day in 2008 that we found out we were going to have Ava.  So in honor of that today I took some pictures of little miss while she played after lunch.  I'm posting the picture in black and white as well because double Ava is like extra goodness.  Enjoy!!
