Our little Muppet Baby

Some people wondered why I had described Avery's arms and legs as "muppet" in an earlier post... today when we went in to see her, she was bright-eyed and bushy tailed... and flailing around like a little muppet :) See for yourself!

oh you wonderful kids of ours. Grandpa and I are having so much fun looking at the blog right now. we can't decide if it makes it easier or harder to be so far away. We love you all so much and are proud of how you are handling this tough situation. We love our little Avery and can't believe what a little fighter she is. We carry her pictures and diaper with us everywhere so we can brag at the drop of a hat.
We can't wait to see you all in person in the not too distant future.
Love, Grams

She is such a beautiful baby! She really is an example and inspiration to all of us...I'm sitting here watching her tiny little arms and legs flail around and thinking what a miracle she is. She's definitely a fighter, and if she can overcome all she has had to deal with from day one, certainly we all can deal with our own little trials as well. Thank you for being willing to share this experience with us all...your writing is beautiful. I know I've only met you (Ryan) once, and I haven't met little Avery yet, but I love Steph and so I love her little family!

wow...it took me a minute to realize that was Deb, not Haylee calling you guys "wonderful kids of ours". I was thinking to myself that Haylee had matured an awful lot turning 13:)

WHAT A CUTE LITTLE BUG!! I LOVE SEEING HER AWAKE AND MOVING AROUND...CUTE CUTE CUTE!!!

Love Aunt Kath
