When you are little you look forward to being 5 yrs. old more than other years, I suppose. Five is when you feel like a big kid. Five is when you start Kindergarten. Five is your whole hand stretched-out, big and wide. Five is a milestone and the start of many new beginnings. In Ava's eyes, she is finally there.
(Whom she thinks we are sending all these photos to. Bribery/fibs come in handy sometimes. he, he, he). If I had to describe Ava, in two words, it'd be sweet and spunky. She has a tender heart, generous spirit, but man oh man does she love to giggle, shreek and shrill!
Happy Birthday Sunshine Bear!!! May this year be full of glorious memories and endless fun. I love you "bigger than our house, bigger than the sky, bigger than all the universe"... and then some.
