My Sweet Baby Girl is six months old! Seriously...how did that happen?!? Ava is so much fun right now. She is rolling all over the place, from back to front and front to back. She is also sitting up all by herself. She loves playing in her jumper, chewing on just about everything, experimenting with her voice, going upside down with Daddy, and watching Sierra.
Ava's current stats:
Weight: 17 pounds 11 ounces
Height: 26 inches
Noah has truly mastered the cheesy smile. Whenever he sees a camera, Bubs plasters his fake smile on and waits for the terrible ordeal to be over.
Ava simply LOVES her big brother! Noah makes her giggle and laugh like nobody else.
Our son, Noah Stone Jackson, was born with a very rare genetic disorder called Fraser syndrome. Among his many challenges are one “hidden eye”, a narrow trachea (which required him to have a tracheotomy), an imperforate anus (which required a colostomy), difficulty swallowing (which required a G-Tube for feedings), the fusing of his vocal chords (which means he may never speak), and club feet (which are being corrected with braces). Our family is on an amazing journey together. We are learning to walk along this path that God has planned for us, trusting in His infinite love and wisdom. We are taking each day (or each moment) as it comes and relying on each other, our friends and family, and our God for strength. We have a long road ahead of us filled with several more surgeries, lots of recovery, countless hours of therapy, and many trips to specialists around the state. Every day brings us challenges but they pale in comparison to the smiles and cuddles from our little man. Noah is our son, a true gift from God, and we cannot wait to see where this adventure leads.
