Happy birthday, Avery! Every day, I look at you and can't believe how much you grow and learn. I had no idea how much you'd enrich our lives and how much I would absolutely love you.
Avery, you are growing in leaps and bounds every day. You love to write and color, you love to learn new things, you love to read and you love, love, love to sing. You can sing so many songs and it's your daddy and my favorite thing to do - listen to your beautiful voice sing songs. You sing songs to God so much and I know He loves the sound of your beautiful voice too. You love to dance and watch movies and play. You got a camera for your birthday of your very own because you love to take pictures. Maybe you will be a photographer when you get older!!
Your personality is really shining through. You are truly an extrovert and love to meet new friends and be around people. You love it when we have people over and are so friendly. You love to play games with new friends and get along with most anyone. You are definitely a leader, you have no problem bossing everyone else around (not always a good thing). You love affection and are definitely like your father, you love hugs and kisses and holding hands.
You love your family and always talk about everyone. You name your cousins and aunts and uncles and grandparents. You love being around your family, especially your sister. You two could play together for hours and hours and you would never get enough of her! You are also really starting to love the dogs and playing with them. It's fun to see.
You love going to school, you just fit in from day one in that environment and really enjoy being able to do fun activities there. They say you do really well with your teacher and other kiddos and I am so proud of your ability to adapt to new situations easily!
I just know you have a wonderful year ahead of you and I am so glad I get to spend so much time with you. Never in a million years did I think I would love being a mommy so much, but you make being a mommy the best job in the entire world. I love spending time with you, I think you are the coolest person in the world! Happy Birthday, I hope you have a great day!!!
