Turning four.





Ava is four. She couldn't be happier about having a birthday today. She has given hugs and kisses and gotten them in return from all her family members. She awoke with a grin on her face and had limited edition Barbie Eggos and orange juice for breakfast. Grandma and Grandpa sang 'happy birthday' to her via the phone from Minnesota before 8 am.
She brought cupcakes with sprinkles to school and shared them with Brock's third grade class. My highschoolers sang to her in yearbook class and she basically announced to everyone she met in the halls and classrooms that she was "four today!!".
She got Madagascar and Ratatouille dvds and an inflatable guitar and Hannah Montana cd...she is a happy girl this afternoon.
The pictures here just give you a small taste of her personality. I snapped them earlier this week when we found ourselves ready to leave home a few minutes ahead of schedule. I asked her if she wanted me to take pictures of her because she was almost four. She said "shore, shore!"...which is "sure, sure!"- only she says it with the cutest pronunciation. These pictures are the results of that informal photo shoot. She can be as sweet as can be...when she wants to be. =)
Today she's being all too sweet. If I get to 'steal' her birthday wish, I'm wishing she'll stay like this for a very long time. There's just something so wonderful about a little girl turning 4.
Happy Birthday, Ava. I love you to pieces. Every little bit!

I agree... Something so wonderful about having a little girl that's 4. My baby, a girl is also 4. She is the 3rd child after two boys. Such a joy and a blessing. Happy Birthday Ava! JW
