Dear Ava...Turning 5

Dear Ava,
Oh my sweet Ava Grace, where do I start?
You are turning 5 on Sunday. FIVE. 
You are so excited. You love birthdays, especially your own. 
And your excitement is contagious.

You started school this year and love it.
You love to learn. To read. To play with your friends. 
You could draw for hours.
Since you're a leftie, you still write your name backwards.
I won't correct you, don't want to. I know that each moment is fleeting.
I still remember when Isabella would do the same thing.
And she, like you will, learned eventually.

You talk a mile a minute my sweetheart.
Honestly, you drive us crazy most days - you just will NOT stop talking. I think you just want to be heard.
Our household is loud.
And we wouldn't want it any other way.
You are still obsessed with Frozen and can (and do!) sing every song by heart.
You hold your play microphone and sing with such drama into the hall mirror. 
It is hilarious.
Your newest passion? You Tube.
If we let you, you would watch videos for hours. 
And can work the iPad like nobody's business.

You are a great eater.
Some days, you eat more than I do! 
You love chicken, soup, plain oatmeal cookies and milk. Oh, and like the rest of us, you LOVE chocolate.
You love to giggle. And know that I love to make you laugh.
I think you know you are cute.
This is my fault.
I eat your nose, your toes and sometimes your bum bum.
It makes you laugh especially hard. Sometimes, you will give me that sweet look like "come on mommy" while you pretend to show me your bum.
I keep telling you to watch out or I will eat it. 
I don't think you're very afraid.

I could eat you up though.
That is how much I love you.
To the moon and right back again.
I could not, do not want to, picture my life without you.
You're the best thing that ever happened to us.

We love you baby girl
