Baby news: Letter to Ava

Dear Ava,
I can't believe you are ONE! Where did the time go? Most days I am still amazed that God blessed us with you. We have a long story to tell you about mommy's long hospital stay to keep you and your twin bother safe in her tummy. It was a long journey but the Lord was faithful through it all! We have loved watching you grow this past year. You are headstrong, and have been since the beginning. You know what you want, and you go get it! You are the little girl mommy always wanted. How did we get so blessed?! I love watching you and daddy interact. You love playing "rough" with daddy and your 2 brothers. But daddy does not realize yet how wrapped around his finger you are. You love hugs and kisses and are a gilry girl already. You love having your hair fixed, and most days you want to brush it yourself. You love wearing bows and surprisingly not taking them off any more. You are scared of new people and will cling to mommy to feel safe. You do not like new situations, but your twin brother helps you get used to new places, and then you relax and have fun. You love to explore and try out new toys.

Our hope is that you love The Lord with all your little heart. Life will have hardships, but your faith in The Lord will carry your through the tough times. We promised Him that we will raise you (and your brothers) to love and to honor God. He will guide you, and use your headstrong personality for so much greatness!

We love you baby girl, our sweet princess! You are everything we ever dreamed when we prayed for a little girl! We can't wait to watch you grow into a beautiful little lady.

Mommy and Daddy
