Rain is on Ava's head

Ava titled this post herself.  What happens when it rains in finally get to play outside. Ava frequently says in her cute little voice that rain is her favorite weather.  A girl after my own heart. We took some pictures while playing outside under the overcast. I didn't have the card to my nicer camera or the pictures would be better quality, but still can't help but love em. I seemed to have posted all the pictures....
practicing her smile
I didn't take many pictures of Asa as he was moving too much or too fascinated by the 2 teenagers tossing a football in the park
Asa repeated, "ball, ball" as he watched the older boys play football

a few songs

a few songs have meant a lot to me, so I'd thought I'd share them.

You are with Me Still

Your Love Never Fails
How He Loves- one of the most impactful and favorite songs, David Crowder sings this song by this guys, but I really like his original version.

poor little guy

Asa had a little trip to the hospital a few weeks ago. It turned out to be nothing at all, but we had a precautionary stay at the hospital from Monday to Thursday. Poor little guy didn't sleep so well with all the beeping and checking and IV hooked to him and all, but the nurses and staff were so nice. Fortunately he liked his crib and he even got a cute quilt and some handmade balls that he loves. Childlife provided toys for his room and a wagon to take rides in around the unit and to the activity room. Ava was a great big sister, helping Asa feel at home when she visited. She also loved the activity room...but she adored the "nourishment" room where they had supplied food and snacks, including those pre-made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches...she has told me she wants us to go to the hospital again whenever we are sick.
