:: Family Happenings - 4 years old

4 years ago, our lives quickly changed when this little one was welcomed into our family.
Ava is so full of life and energy.
She keeps us on our toes and always makes us laugh.
We wouldn't be complete without her.

I've learned so much since becoming a mother.
- learned that no matter what anyone tells you, you'll never be prepared for motherhood
- learned how to love unconditionally
- learned that sleeping in until 7:30 is just lovely
- learned how to make a song out of anything . . . and everything
- learned that the best smell is my baby's skin
- learned what the meaning of life truly is
- learned how to change a diaper with one hand
- learned that loud screams can mean both joy and utter despair
- learned that I truly can be selfless
- learned to watch what I say and do, because they'll do the exact same thing
- learned that time really does fly, especially when it comes to your children

Happy Birthday Ava!
You are such a joy to us!
