Hello Ava friends! She’s been doing better. She seems to be at that age where every little thing is a great big drama!
Many of you that have followed us since, well her birth, would know that she was delivered at Hospital of Pennsylvania and then rolled her across the street to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. We were very fortunate that God allowed us to find such a wonderful CDH hospital. The 16 plus hour drive home was well worth the end result of bringing our Sweet Ava home to see her sister’s for the first time when she was 50 days old!
I noticed today that CHOP’s Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment was looking for videos of their patients to celebrate their 16th Birthday. I was honored to be able to send then a small video. Here is an entire video I made of the one small one I sent. Ava is so incredible in it. She sang, “Happy Birthday” to them and blew out the candle. I’m so proud of her!
Here is a few pictures of today’s recording of the Birthday video, just because…
Ava’s “CDH Miracle” barrette I made for her. Perfect for this video!
Okay here is one I couldn’t resist… an “OUT TAKE!”
I found this very nice photo frame at Hobby Lobby a few months ago. It was clearanced so it was as if God was telling me it was just PERFECT for us. It says, “Life takes Us to Unexpected Places. Love Brings Us Home.” Ava on the Oscillating Ventilator and the very first picture of the girls together at home. Simply Perfect!
One more thing I must share. It was Ava’s turn to bring treats today to Preschool. I saw this neat idea on Pinterest and HAD to do them. It was “Monster Monday” today at Messiah! (Magic Vanilla Pudding and vanilla wafers… yummy!)
