    Sorry it took so long for me to come over here and post. It's hard finding free time to get online anymore! Well Natalie Brooke was born 4/24 weighing 7lbs3oz and 20 in long by scheduled c-section, although I actually went into labor the morning of my c-section! It was insane!

    Anyways, Ava is doing great, and LOVES LOVES LOVES her little sister. She does anything and everything for her that she can. She even loves to help change the poopy diapers. She was a little grumpy with me the first week or so, but has been great with Natalie since day 1.

    Here is a cute video of Ava singing to Natalie last night:

    I will try to find more time to get online and keep in touch with you all! Hope everyone is doing good!!

    I'm so glad you are all doing well and that Ava is adjusting to having a baby sister. I'm going to try to watch the video if my computer will let me. Don't be a stranger!

    Congrats! I'm glad to hear that Ava is enjoying her little sister. My baby is 6 1/2 months and big sister still LOVES LOVES LOVES her baby. Good luck adjusting and enjoy the sweet memories your two little girls will make. :c)
