Ava's Road Test

So Ava passed her carseat test. She is excelling already. For NICU babies, before they send them home, they have you bring in your carseat and they sit the baby in it (with all the monitors on) for an hour and a half to make sure they can handle the trip home without suffocating or anything. Fortunately our carseat is approved for 4lbs and up (most are 5 and up). She's been gaining a lot of weight in the last couple of days too, and today she moved over the 4 lb mark! Looks like she could come home as early as Wednesday.
Here she is looking like a binkie loving elf child.
Somebody is already trying to claim every new thing as his territory. We put a stop to that real quick. This fatty better not sit on my baby!And here is our teeny little gal being swallowed up by her carseat. Pin It

VERY teeny Ava! Good job for gaining weight! Your cat looks hilarious in the car seat. Hopefully Ava isn't underneath the cat. ;) Because for sure she could fit there and you wouldn't know she was there!
