Today’s the day where we get to celebrate another year in the life of Averie! She’s grown so much – both physically and intellectually this year – it’s just amazing. Hard to believe she’s already five!
The night before her birthday I had insomnia. Possibly it was anxiety over how my little baby could be this old already! In an effort to wear myself out, I blew up an insane number of balloons and spread them all over her floor. Her reaction in the morning was priceless. She didn’t know how to get out of bed at first, and then proceeded to squeal and kick them all over the place!
This year is Averie’s Golden Birthday, we also thought it would be the perfect age for a return trip to visit family in California and hit up Disneyland. She was quite excited once she put together why her suitcase was in a giant bag with a bunch of balloons!
I’m so proud of the girl she’s growing up to be, and I can only imagine how many more amazing things she’s going to accomplish going forward.
Love you, Bug!!
