Ava's here!

After the longest and hardest pregnancy and labor, Jesus blessed us with Ava Jade Hart. Born Monday, January 19th at 10:17am. She weighed 8.1 pounds and was 20 inches long. I am so thankful that she has been a peaceful and easy going baby. Even though she has been sick with colds for most of her two month old life, she still sleeps well and doesn't cry much! We have not decided who she looks like...maybe a mixture of the other two girls, but definitely a new set of eyes! We are thinking they came from Nate's Grandpa Sexton, because they are similar to some of his cousins eyes. Time will tell with that, I guess. She will grow into her features and they will all belong to her soon, but it is fun to compare while she is so small. The past few weeks have been sweet to see her awake more and smiling and talking to us. The girls are loving her in their own special way. Naomi just likes to be with her, while Stella is more of a hands on girl. The first few nights Stella would be in our room at least three times to check on Ava. That is three SEPARATE times in the middle of the night. She is going to be one good momma when she gets her chance! It is exciting for us to think that this child completes our family. All sorts of things seem simpler! Please join us in praying that Ava will know the Lord and have a great impact on His kingdom!
