the moms have nested...

their eggs have hatched...come on over to meet the precious new batch!!!!!

we were able to introduce ava, along with her friends cooper and frances, to lots of family and friends last friday at their "sip & see"! all the babies did so well and our sweet angel did not make a peep as she was passed around from person to person!

"tess", "honey", and "bebe" did a fantastic job of making everything look amazing...and the day was such a cozy, "holidayey" day...it even snowed a little bit right before the festivities!
as each day passes, i am more and more convinced that miss ava was exactly who we needed to join our family. she is such a doll and has such an angelic temperament. she smiles without fail if you just look her way...and those precious cheeks will make you smile in return. she is snuggly and loves to curl up into a tiny ball on your chest while she is sleeping. she smells scrumptious and has the most heart breaking cry (which we really don't get to hear all that often...unless of course, she is hot...which i guess comes along with the territory of being "well fed"!!!!!!) she had her 2 month check up yesterday and checked out a-ok! she weighs
11 lbs 7 oz and is 23 1/2 inches long...definitely the biggest price baby to date - which probably means she will be the tallest & thinnest one when she grows up!!!!!

i love you baby ava. there is no way to know if you will always be the baby...for now, you are...and i will treat you as such. i will try not to take one coo, one smile, one cry, one moment alone with you for granted. you are the best christmas gift we could have ever received...really, one of three greatest gifts we have ever received...ever.

when you hatched, my heart broke open even more...you are so, so loved!!!!!!

So sorry I missed out on the festivites, but things don't always go as planned when you've got three little ones, as you know! Hope to meet those precious babies soon!

How funny. I had just gotten to the 6th picture and was just sitting there "taking her in" and thinking, "She is by FAR the roundest Price baby I've EVER seen!!" And then you immediately verified that she is INDEED the roundest!! Ha ha!! By the way, that 6th picture is my FAVE!! She's absolutely stunning!!!
