happy 2nd birthday, Ava!!!


I cannot believe that it has been two  years since you were born. 

Welcome Ava Nicole 002 

I remember it like it was yesterday.  You were so tiny and precious.

Last year at your 1st birthday party I thought you were such a BIG girl.

And now this year I sit in amazement thinking about how much you have changed and all that you can do and say now.  I missed a good bit of your last year because Uncle Bubba and I moved to Texas in June.  We visited occasionally, and every time I saw you again you seemed so much taller and bigger than the time before.


At your second birthday party you had no problem feeding yourself,



or opening your own gifts.


It was fun to see you get so excited over the toys that you unwrapped.



You have such a cute and sweet little personality with a little touch of sassy.  I definitely found out that you have learned the word “no” and don’t like to pose for my camera as much anymore.


I love you soooooooo much, Ava.  So many people do!  You are a very special little girl, and I’m so glad I get to be your one and only Aunt Lissa :) 


After Ava’s party, we took her down to the neighborhood park for a little bit of sunshine.  It was a beautiful day for a beautiful girl!

And on my way home I had to pull over and capture this gorgeous sunset.  Perfect ending to a wonderful day.




(Candice, I do have more pictures.. didn’t wanna put them all in this post.  I’ll either print them for you or put them on a CD for you!  Love ya’ll!)
