Today my little baby girl turns 1 year old! People told me before I had kids how fast time goes and I don’t think I fully realized how true that was until this very day! My precious baby girl, who rocked her mommy and Daddy’s world a year ago at 7:12pm, is still my precious baby girl, but she is not a baby anymore! She walks, says “hi”, “bye”, “Daddy”, shakes her head no, blows kisses, gives Mommy kisses and freely gives hugs. She waves and charms anyone who pays any attention to her. She thinks the world was created for her to entertain. I can’t imagine my love being any bigger for her then it is. Her Daddy is so in love with her and she adores him. We have had our hard days and I know there will be many more to come, but I cannot imagine my life without my baby girl. She has taught me so much and made me laugh more then anyone ever has. She is SO busy and keeps us running but I wouldn’t want it any other way!
On this day we celebrate life! We celebrate that God has trusted Jeremy and I with a daughter to love and raise in His ways. I am humbled at the thought yet I am more proud to be Ava’s momma then I could express.
“I can’t imagine life before you came along. You are the music to my dance and my song. I am meant for you, and you are meant for me, the one I love forevermore. Undeniably.”
