10. 10 years of love, fun and giggles. I’ve known this day was coming…I’ve been trying to prepare for it but I’m still not certain that i’m ready. I’m not really sure what it is about 10…its the double digits I think. The notion that I’m more then half way until I get to let you fly. It’s been really having me in all the feels though.
When I look back on these 10 years I honestly cannot imagine life any other way. Averee Ann…You my darling are magnificent.
You have the kindest heart that you share with everyone around you. It makes my heart burst hearing from others how sweet you are because I know that they too see you. That you are not afraid to share your beautiful soul with others. You are so smart. Your determination to learn amazes me. You push and you don’t give up. You are confident. I used to worry about this one but goodness have you grown into yourself. You have learned to speak up, to try new things and that you can only fail if you stop trying. You’re witty just like your daddy. You have jokes for days and your giggles just make this world a better place. You love teal and tennis and you’re excited about starting softball and even went out for a play! You love cheese (girl after my own heart), smoothies and honestly all food but avocado (who’s kid are you?! ha!). You want to be a photographer like me when you grow up and I adore that you shout that with pride. You love american girl dolls, legos and art and you are so so talented.
You my girl will absolutely move mountains. You will continue to bring love and joy to this world and you will continue to make your Dad and I so darn proud. Keep shining our little dolly! Happy 10th birthday!!!
