Everyone says the pictures make it so hard to really capture how small she is...maybe this view on daddy's chest will help. She's like a little kitten...so light, so perfect and miniature. She's amazing.
This weekend Matt's parents and siblings arrive in St. Louis to celebrate his parents 40th wedding anniversary (the real date is in August, but they're graciously accommodating our crazy family circumstances). We're thrilled that the adults will get to meet Ava and our girls will get some fun cousin time. And of course, it is a complete blessing to be able to witness and honor the amazing marriage my in-laws have.
Matt and I will be balancing extended family time with "Ava time" and I especially would appreciate prayers for peace in my heart about when to be where...the bottom line is, we can't possibly have "enough" of either, so we'll just need grace to let things be as they are.
