Wooooh.

I got a lot out of that, girl. So did my husband, leaning over my shoulder. It breaks my heart.

Your daughter is sweet. Complete.

Thank you for expressing this so well.

Oh my cry fest. What is it about the grandpa at the airport photos that kills me every time? And Tulip! Oh Tulip, I told you you would love her. How could you not? Welcome home sweet, beautiful Ava.

Evelyn said...

This is so beautiful. I thought the picture of the baby looking out the plane window was amazing. Congratulations.

She is magnificent. I am so happy for you three. Swallowing back that painful lump in my throat.

I have watched this a few times and think it fits you perfectly. What great visuals. Oh, and I had a pre-travel dream last night I showed up at your house last night and you wanted me to go away! It was bad.

For your Ava:

In the words of Peter Bradley Adams, "

Beautiful sleeping baby
don't let it pass you by
when the leaves on the autumn trees all fall
what do you find
lay your head down, lay your head down...

beautiful sleeping baby
sail on the river wide
when the leaves of autumn trees all die
baby don't cry
lay your head down, lay your head down...
"
(sampling of song - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bG-Wz2Z3Fzs )

Just now seeing this. SOOOOOOOO beautiful. I nearly lost it when she was looking out the plane window. I'm so glad your family is now complete. And I hope you are enjoying Ava to the fullest -- but dude, seriously, we need an update here.

Julia said...

Totally not fair with the opera. Who told you that you could break the mold???? You are supposed to use some sort of euro pop (MJ would also be acceptable in the current climate).

Also, this was posted before I LEFT. People need more Ava even if I am just now getting to see it.

Sleep is over-rated.

I am not too proud to post video of Little Bit snoring. Don't make me do it.
