Happy Birthday Ava Wava

Today is Ava's very 1st Birthday!!! This is such an exciting day for Sunni and Xavier but definitely mixed with some precious reminiscing. Ava is having the best birthday ever because she is getting to spend it in LONDON! Not to many other 1 year olds get to say that's what they did.

Ava was born exactly one month after Ella, so I have been able to watch her grow up since her 2nd day of life when Heath, Ella and I went to the hospital to see them. Amanda, Sunni and I made some of the most precious memories those first few months of our babies' lives. We had each other to lean on through pregnancy puking and birthing classes through the hard moments of the first few months of motherhood and trying to figure it all out. Without them, it would have been a million times harder for me. I am so thankful for the Lazo family! I am so thankful that the Lord put us in each other's lives at the perfect time! Happy Birthday Ava!! I love you and I am excited to be a part of your 2nd year of life!

At the hospital. Ella couldn't do much at one month old but she could sure raise her hand in praise for her new friend.

We got to celebrate her birthday last Saturday. Sunni through a brilliant party, she had a baby petting zoo come to her house. It was one of the most fun days I have had with Ella. There were baby chicks, ducks, bunnies, goats, pigs, a turtle and a pony. So cute and so fun!

Sunni and Ava

Ella tried so hard to catch those bunnies but they were just a little to quick.

Ella loved the turtle until she picked it up and saw its ugly head and then dropped it quickly.

Laney really wanted Ella to try some of the delicious dirt.

Ella and the birthday girl!

I'm hearing the theme song for Snow White.

Ava, Laney and Ella. Ava had on the cutest birthday dress. Her name is embroidered on it under the birthday hat but it's hard to see in this picture.

OK, so I got a little teary-eyed when I saw that picture and remembered Ava & Ella's first meeting! Sweet girls! We love y'all!
