Ava, my sweet angel


My sweet Ava, full of life and beauty. Another year of you being my little girl has slipped through my hands. The years go by so fast, I can’t believe you are eight. Still a little number, but your working your way up. You have such big plans for your life & seem to have it figured out. I envy that about you, how can a little girl know so much & have such big goals? I hope you know how much Mommy & Daddy love you, we will do whatever we can to help you become the best you. While sometimes you & I can bump heads, I hope you also remember all the snuggles & laughs we have together, because Emery Ava, I love you with all of my heart & you are the most wonderful person I have ever had the pleasure of knowing & the privilege of getting to teach, love & grow with. You changed me from the second you came into our life. Everyday I try to be the best me, for you; please remember that when we aren’t our best with each other.
Love always, Mom & Dad.
