Watching Ava Grow: Week 14

Watching Ava Grow: Week 14

I loved taking these photos of my sweet girl. She was asleep for most of it and I turned our home upside down trying to find the right props, but it was worth it. These are definitely going into the baby book.

She's been doing really well since she came home and it's nice to see glimpses of her personality forming. She's bold and talkative, loves her sleep and her food. When she came home she was about 7.4lbs, happy to say that she now weighs 8.6lbs (which is about 1-2oz a day). We've been given the go ahead to exclusively feed her with breast milk only so bye bye formula! It's been so tough on her stomach. I now have to up my pumping schedule, maybe do a few days of power pumping to get that supply back up.

Ava at 14 weeks is more than I could have ever imagined. She is bubbly and feisty, she's sweet and absolutely hilarious and perfectly healthy. So proud of my girl and how far she's come.
