On the 24th of May, Ava's school report read:
Ava het baie mooi aangepas en geniet die maaitgies baie. Sy drink haar bottel goed. Geniet die aand.
Ava is the most wonderful kid we've ever had in class! All the other children just adore her! Everyday, she drinks all her milk like a good little girl. Have a good night.
Ava has adjusted very nicely and enjoys her friends a lot. She drinks her bottle well. Enjoy the evening.
Either way you look at it, it is a pretty darn good report. Mommy is very proud that her little girl is adjusting to school. Still breaks my heart to say goodbye to her every morning, but at least I know she is happy.
In other Ava news, she has found her voice!! And just like her Mommy, she likes to use it!! On Monday, when I went to school to pick her up, the moment she saw me she squealed! It was the moment I have been waiting for! Just a little recognition, but it went a long way. Melted my heart like a chocolate fountain.
We all know our little ones love us, that their mom is number one. Well, deep down we do. That all the late nights and hectic diaper changes are appreciated... But until they show it, there is this incy wincy doubt that you just can't shake. The moment they do, it is music to your ears.
For a split second, you know, she loves you just as much as you love her.
Here is the little Miss Ava, all dressed and ready for school. Sorry for the bad quality of photo, shot it with my mobile. I take one of her every morning, to help me get through the day. Such a happy baby.
Thank you Aunt Natalie for the awesome shirt! And Aunt Sherrill for my Baby Gap skinny jeans. Johan said all the mom's were ogling this morning, they'd never seen skinny jeans on a baby before.
QUE ANGEL TRUMPETS! IJH has arrived!
I am proud to introduce,

|Such a sweet baby!|
|Here she is wearing my favorite outfit of Ava's newborn clothes. Look how big it is on her?!|
Another beautiful girl, added to our clan of gorgeous women. Ava and Issy are going to be the best of friends, I can see it now!
As my friend Marissa always says, STAY BEAUTIFUL!
ps. I almost change the background of this blog like I change my underwear, everyday. Just bare with me. :) This one is called Sweater Weather, which is what we are experiencing here in SA at the moment.
