Ava - Beautiful Girl


This has to be one of my all-time favorite photos of you. To me, it captures those beautiful eyes and that grin that says, I am probably about to make some kind of silly face.

You don't know how much I love you and how much alike we are. I guess that is why I get so frustrated by you sometimes. We are like two peas in a pod.

What I want you to grow into is your beauty. You are so beautiful on the outside, but I want you to develop your inner beauty too. I want people to see not only your outside, but your kindness as well and I tend to get frustrated when you don't show that beauty that I know is inside there.

I know that as the years pass, I will look back on these trying times we have with a fond remembrance of when you were little, so I am concentrating on trying to breathe more and relax some and take things in stride.

But no matter what, I love you, little girl. And you will always be my little princess.

Love, Mom

    This beautiful picture of our Ava nearly took my breath away when I first saw it! Now, it brings tears to my eyes, realizing how quickly this little girl seems to be growing up! She is the very essence of youth and vitality, and I want to absorb as much as I can of all the goodness, light and love she brings to our lives every day. Ava radiates life at its best, and we are one lucky family to have her share her wonderful spirit with us! :)
