My girl is two today.

She started out a little chubbier and a little more serious.

At one year, she blossomed into a toddler full of smiles and giggles.

Now at two, she is so fun. Everyday she cracks me up with a new talent or vocabulary word, but she is still the same little girl with her bright white hair and contagious laughter. She finds amazment in the simplest of things like strings, rocks, and chapstick. She is so interested in learning about the world around her and where she fits into it. The other day I stubbed my toe and she rubbed my back while I gritted my teeth in frustration and pain. "Okay, Mommy?" She would ask with the sweetest expression, totally concerned and sympathetic. I can't resist her at these moments and kiss her to death.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AVA! Someone's anxiously awaiting your arrival back home to give you your big birthday kiss! (hint ... he's 3 years old)
She is so sweet and cute. I can't believe how much she has changed (even since we have known her). I hope you guys are having a super fun day!
