Little 5-month-old Ava has the sweetest smile and is such a joy to be around! She had no problem with having a camera follow her around all morning. She shares a residence with Gus, the dog, but she doesn’t seem to mind much, even though Gus doesn’t get as much attention as he used to. She was supposed to arrive October 31st, but narrowly missed an October birthday by being born on November 1st instead! One day late isn’t too shabby! Ava’s mommy Michelina is from Lombard, Illinois, where every year they have a lilac festival. We made sure to get a photo of Ava with lilacs because not only are they special to Michelina, they’re just really pretty. Congratulations, Michelina and Miguel, on having beautiful Ava!
