Five years ago.
The culmination of a near three day labor. Two trips to the hospital. Three weeks early.
And we still had no idea how much this little girl would change our lives.
She is a powerhouse to deal with, smarter than we could imagine, more stubborn than both of us. Her imagination and memory astound me. And while she can drive us crazy like no one else, she brings us more joy and excitement than anything else in this world.
Happy Birthday Avalyn!
