Ava loves the Wiggles!

I am happy to tell you Ava saw the “Wiggles” LIVE in concert last night. She was excited talking about going to the show. Then when we got there she was a little afraid. One thing you have to keep in mind is that Ava has not been around many children or adults. We have sheltered her from sickness and germs. She has never seen more than a few small children at a time in her entire life. She really did not know what to do….a little in shock too! The concert was GREAT! The Wiggles are such happy guys. They are talented. They dance and do flips the whole show. Ava was entranced. I held her at one point but then she wanted down. I made a HUGE sign for her to hold. Murray read it out loud. We were the only ones that had a sparkly sign! We also brought roses for Dinosaur Dorothy!

Thinking about how the Wiggles got Ava through her many, many days in the hospital and how they always seem to make her smile when her little body was fighting so hard makes me know how special they are to her life. It was a “full circle” moment for me. She is getting better and they helped her. We will always be grateful! Her sign says it all, “Miracle Ava loves the Wiggles!”

Before the concert she was all kisses!

Taking pictures around the pond. My sister and her husband made this pond. It is so peaceful and relaxing. We love it!

AND here is Ava at the concert. This is her first expression! She didn’t have any emotion at all. She is much like her Dad….he is hard to read sometimes too!

Thanks Wiggles for a FANTASTIC show! I am so glad we were able to take her. YES I was afraid of the germs….and yes I was a nervous wreck…and yes I am praying she stays healthy BUT she is ALIVE and is healthy at this perfect moment.

“Thank you Lord, Jesus. I am humbled by your gifts you have given us…. We are honored to be able to hold Ava up to you and count our blessings that she was able to experience something every child should…..THE WIGGLES! Continue to give us the strength to live each day and to never forget your goodness.”

First thing when we got home from St. Louis tonight Ava put her Wiggles movie in the DVD player and proudly held up her sign up to the TV screen. It is something I will never forget. I know she will remember this forever. I know I will!

If you will continue to help us pray Ava stays healthy. Tomorrow she will get a blood test to see how all her levels are doing. I’m pretty confident she is doing fabulous! Also pray fro Lexis she is not feeling well tonight. I hope it is not the flu. Her tummy is really bothering her. Thanks for popping in!
