"Team Ava" had so much fun last year, so this year we've decided to join forces with the "SUPER KIDS ALLIANCE" to make it even more fun!!! Kyle, Emme, Devon, Ava, and Macee are the 5 special co-captains of our team this year. Spending this day with our friends is going to be a blast!!!
Our little Ava has hit quite a few milestones this year; from crawling to cruising to walking to running! She also signs and says a combination of about 30 words. She loves playing babies and Barbies, dancing and dogs, and creating a path of chaos wherever she goes! We could have never imagined such a sick little baby would come this far. She is eating by mouth wonderfully, still needs to work on drinking, so she still relies on the g-tube for water and filling the gap of some dietary needs. As of this last spring she stopped requiring oxygen while sleeping, but of course we have everything on hand in case she gets sick.She grows stronger and stronger every day.
