Where in the World Have I Been?

Here's what I've been up to, a little earlier than expected... Okay a lot earlier. I just went in for a regular checkup and was suddenly diagnosed with a severe case of pre-eclampsia (despite any real signs or symptoms). More details later.

See how red I am? It's from the medication I was on. It makes you hot and tired and exhausted and icky. But here's little baby Ava! She was born Thursday, August 13, 3lbs 6 oz. and 18 inches long. 6 weeks and one day early.

More pictures coming soon. She already looks different. And she has a little bow in her hair now. Pin It
