Ava's First Christmas!

It's amazing how much having a little person around can bring out the true Christmas spirit. Even though Ava really wasn't old enough to know exactly what was going on or to be excited for Santa to come, Kyle and I did everything we knew how to make Ava's very first Christmas a memorable one. We had lights put up on the house and went all out on the inside of our home with colorful new decor. I have always been a fan of a minimalist color scheme, but there was something so fun about this time just going crazy with tons of color. Ava loved our tree and figured out very quickly that the ornaments were fun to take off the tree and play with.

Time flies when you're having fun!

Wow! I can't believe it's been so long since my last post! SO much has happened since Ava's 4 month appt. I decided to leave Discover to be home with the little angel. I'm so blessed to have that option and although I miss my job and all the wonderful people I got to work with, I know I would regret it had I not taken the opportunity. We moved into and completely renovated a new (to us) home! I'm working on "before and after" photos and will post them once I do.
Now that we are settled in, it's time to plan for the holidays and Ava's FIRST BIRTHDAY! Wow, time flies. I can't believe she's going to be one on January 7th. She has 8 teeth, weighs 25 lbs, is about to walk any day now and still has no hair but is working on it. :)
These are our first official family pictures that were taken last month by our wonderful friend and photographer, Bryan McCracken. He's the same photographer that took Ava's newborn photos. It was a lot easier this time around! Anyway, sorry I have been gone so long. :) xoxo

4 month appointment

Well now that Ava is 5 months old, I better update her 4 month appointment before the 6 month one has come and gone. Time flies when you're having fun! :) So as of last month, little one is apparently not so little....rating in the 98% for weight and 92% for height weighing almost 17 lbs. I guess I'm doing my job!

Smiley Girl!



Little Ava Bug has found her smile! It's the cutest thing and just melts my heart. She's a happy girl, it doesn't take much to get a big grin out of her. Check out her shades! She thinks they make her look cool. :)

Ava's First Photo Shoot








At 3 weeks old, Ava had her first photo shoot. It took our awesome photographer, Bryan, about 3 hours just to capture these few images, bless his patient heart. :) It was totally worth it.

Welcome Home, Ava!


By now this is old news, my apologies....I had something come up! :)

Ava Simone Hansen is here! Our little angel came early on January 7th, 2011 at 12:59pm. She weighed 7 lbs 8 oz and was 20 inches long and has stolen our hearts.

The night of the 6th we went to the hospital after I had been having contractions at work all day. They almost sent us home, but at the last minute admitted me. About 13 hours later I was holding my sweet little angel. The labor and delivery went very smooth, thanks to good old western medicine.....God bless the man who invented the epidural. I was so impressed by the staff at IHC Riverton, they really did a phenomenal job.

Ava's Shower!



My dear, sweet friend Lacey threw the most amazing shower on the 4th. It was the second shower now, Ava is set! Last month a couple of girlfriends from work threw one as well, so we are officially spoiled rotten! Thank so so much to all those who came and spoiled our little one.

There are SO many awesome blankets, clothes and accessories...even a tiny little Ava sized bracelet :). A VERY special thanks to Lacey for all your hard work and having us all over to your gorgeous home. What a hostess!!! This girl knows how to throw a party!

As you can see, the decorations were so amazing. She made those poofy balls and all the decor.....and the letters are SO cute. They are now hanging on the door to Ava's room. Lacey, you are a sweetheart. Thank you SO MUCH for throwing the best shower ever! :)
