Introducing Ava Ruth

Mother’s Day marked four weeks since we met our newest little one – a girl! Ava Ruth, born on April 10 in the wee hours of the morning, weighing 7 pounds 8 ounces. Meeting her will always be one of my favourite moments. The labor itself was an experience I already enjoy thinking back on…I felt so in tune with this baby who was making their way out into the world. When she was born, I immediately took her all in with my eyes and with my hands, and was over the moon to learn we now had a daughter!

These past few weeks have been fuller than I can describe…full of diapers, of kisses, of wakeful nights…full of snuggles, of rocking, of nursing…full of messes, of juggling and full of love. Overall, Ava makes our home feel fuller in the best of ways. It’s like she’s a piece to our family that had been missing. And it’s incredibly sweet to see the love that Zaya has for her, and that protective big brother instinct as he watches out for her and dotes upon her.

We’re just so thankful for this perfect little gift, and can’t wait to see the girl she becomes…though we’ll take all the newborn snuggles and kisses we can before she does too much growing up! Love you so much, Ava baby…
