Ava - almost 3 yrs old

Happy 3rd birthday to you, my dear daughter Ava today. I love you and am so proud to be your mama. :)

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you’ll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they’re worth taking
Lovin’ might be a mistake
But it’s worth making
Don’t let some hell bent heart
Leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out
Reconsider
Give the heavens above
More than just a passing glance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance

  1. Happy Birthday Ava!! I forgot her and Holly shared a close birthday!! Holly turned 3 yesterday. Time has flown so quickly hasn’t it??

    Hope she enjoys her day!!

  2. Happy Birthday Ava!!!!! I can’t believe they are turning 3 already! Ava has a month and a couple days on Emma. It just doesn’t seem like they should be turning 3 yet! Has her turning 3 been emotional on you? Just asking because the concept of E turning 3 has been worse than her turning 2. =)

    Are you guys having a special day today?

  3. Happy Birthday to both of you! Can you even remember what your life was like 4 years ago today? ;)
