Ava: 3 yrs 3 months old...
Goes to preschool tues/ thurs 9-11:30. Loves it!!
Speech therapy for an hour every Friday. Potty trained. Loves Sunday eggs everyday ( sunny side) thinks going to target is always a " good idea mama"

Ava, you are the sweetest girl! But fierce! Strong! Opinionated ! You make up little songs and sing and dance all day. You are quick to stroke jacks head.. Or kiss Ella's feet.
I worry sometimes cause you often say things like " it's not perfect for me" or me just can't mama" but the my heart lifts because you are easily lead to prayer- stretching your hand out to pray for others.. Very sensitive to my mood and health- with a sweet little hand in mine or a just because kiss and " love you mama"
You try everything .... Taking pride in success.. And getting determined in failure...

Wise beyond your years my little baby blue. Love you!

Ava re her new pumpkin fork and spoon.., oh they are so cute me don't want to make them soppy and Germy and dirty...
Ava has been particularly chatty this morning .. I snuggled her and said "hey bluebird.. Remember when you were little and didn't talk...?"

Ava smiled and said.. " and now I have to many words to say! Mama is that a miracle??"

"oh mama your so beautiful to me mama. but you -do- have boy hair and no makeup like a girl... but you smell so beautiful and you sing so beautiful and when me see you i just feel tears in me -points to throat-- cause your so beautiful and i love you ." 

(walking over to church holding hands....)

..." and mama this day is so beautiful too... me so proud of this day and you & me going to church together...praising jesus together and everything"

It's an ordinary morning here today... The living room is scattered with toys.. The table has bowls of almost gone oatmeal and a community dish of scrambled eggs. A cup is leaking all over the floor...
It's a cooler morning but the windows are open and the sun is hot.. Mickey mouse is on tv and all 3 of my sweet littles at sitting in the floor watching and singing all touching some how.. Foot to foot.. Shoulder to shoulder.
I'm thankful.
