Ava (aka “Ava to the Mava”), the daughter of Dr. Heather Yost and Ben Yost, was born in Des Moines, IA, November 9, 2006…. A quick (or long according to mommy) 34 minutes after her sister. She screamed much harder and longer than Gavyn after birth… the assumption is that she just didn’t want to be left alone in there without Gavyn. Ava was adjusted within hours of her birth and has been adjusted regularly since.
Ava is another true “chiropractic kid”. She’s the dancer of the family and always climbing. Although a little more hesitant at times to get adjusted, she realizes what her body needs to grow big and strong. Her turn is usually after her sister and brother have been adjusted. Ava is a true helper and mothering spirit. She used to “adjust” her sister all the time as a 1 and 2 year old. At the age of 2 ½, she also had her sister pretend to deliver a baby and Ava’s job was the catch the baby. She’s going to be a chiropractor or possibly a midwife… and will be a mother for sure! She loves her vitamins each morning and is quick to be the one to dispense them to Gavyn and Kallen. In addition to wanting to be a chiropractor, she tells us she wants to be a banker like her dad.
