Yes, I am posting about my sweet Avery's birthday A WHOLE WEEK LATE!!!
For shame, for shame!
But until Faith's wedding has occurred, I am blaming all my tardy posts on the fact that I am pretty much absorbed with the planning of said wedding and have way too many details to keep track of.....
This little stinker turned five last Sunday, March 27th!
She was so very excited about this day.
She was ready to embrace this birthday with her full heart!
Last year when we celebrated her fourth birthday, she had been home with us for only two months.
She was still in a fog....
She was very reserved, shy, and confused.
She was probably wondering why & how her life had been turned upside down in a matter of one day.
She was still wrapping her head around the idea that she had a new family, a new home, a new language, a new 'everything'!
I know she was trying to figure 'it' all out.
Yet, here we are....a whole year later.
And, this precious child has given us her heart.
Loves us fiercely.
A miracle indeed!
A whole year later....
And, Avery is lovin' this birthday thang!
From enjoying a singing birthday card ~
To opening some presents ~
To blowing out the candles on her birthday cake ~
Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!!!
This momma loves you like crazy!!!
