Where has the time gone?! It is super hard to believe that my sweet sweet girl was being knitted in my womb and into my heart 2 years ago. It's hard to imagine what she looked like when she 1st smiled at me, said her first word, cut her first tooth and had no hair on her beautiful round head. I say all that and yet they are imprinted on my heart and mind forever.
How Blessed she has truly made me and her daddy...

I asked Avery how old she was going to be yesterday and she sat for a minute looking at her fingers before smiling brightly and proclaiming with the right number of fingers up "I FOUR!", I corrected her by saying "You wish you were four, try again." in which she shrugged and said but would not show me with her fingers "I two, I two momma?" in which I just hugged her and said "yeah, you will be two but you know you'll always be my baby though, right?!" in response I got a tantrum with head shaking, tears, screeching, the works as she pouted that she was "TWO, I TWO!"
Yup, you are indeed a two year old.
To our sweet Avery Claire-
You were our miracle of life, an answered prayer and indeed a bright light in the dark. We couldn't be more thankful and humble to our Lord for giving us you. You complete us in so many ways. You teach us the beauty of innocence and the joy of pure, unselfish love. You make us laugh til we cry and cry til we laugh. You enrich all who know you and have a sweet spirit. I hope we never fail you in teaching you the ways of right and wrong and may you grow up to be a leader in Christ to your friends and an outstanding person of your own making.
