Happy 2nd birthday (tomorrow) Ava!! June 21, 2006

Filed under: Ava,Pictures — amygeekgrl @ 1:19 pm

It was two years ago today I found out that Ava’s birth was not going to go at all like we had planned or expected. Yet despite the unexpected turn of events (all dealing with complications on my part), Ava was born into this world at 12:06 a.m. June 22, 2004, the picture of health and grace. We couldn’t have been happier!

(One of these days I will get around to posting her birth story. I have it all typed up, just would need to give it the once over and probably shorten it a bit (because it’s quite lengthy).)
