Exactly one year ago today, at 12:34 am I swear the entire world stopped spinning when I held you in my arms. Ever since that moment I have become a sweeter, more patient, more loving person. I wonder how I went on without the kind of love I feel for you.
I promise to teach you the important things in life like kindness, bravery, humility and honesty... but I know you're going to be the one who teaches me so much more.
In this past year you have shown me that the simple things in life are what matters most. You have made me laugh until my stomach hurts. You find my smile when I'm sad. You make me want to be my best.
I can't wait to watch you grow up and see all the things you'll do and learn with each year. Hearing you laugh, watching you take your first steps, cuddling every morning, seeing your first tooth pop up, you learning to dance and clap your hands... those have been some of my favorite memories of this year.
I love you Ava, you're the best thing to ever happen to your Dad and I.
Happy 1st Birthday 🎉🎈❤️ #avaturns1
