Dear Ava...

Dear Ava,
What can I say about you that you don't already know?
You are smart, sweet and so full of love. Almost every day, I get a picture or a letter written in your childish handwriting telling me how much you've missed me or how I am you're favourite.
Well, you are my favourite. {shhh...don't tell the others - you each had your turn}
You are such a happy child, almost always smiling, almost always ready for anything.
You've slowed down a bit now that you're 6 and a half, preferring to stay home more often now that you've figured out you have everything you need right here.
But, usually, you are pretty much game for anything.
Especially dinner.

 Did I mention you are hungry ALL THE TIME?
We can't quite figure out where you put it all but man, you can eat little one! 
You are also talking ALL THE TIME.
Sometimes, even when you really have nothing to say. I think you get that from me. ;) 
Ava, as you start grade one next week, I want you to be strong. Patient. You will need to learn the new routine, new teachers - new friends.
You aren't the greatest with change but once you are settled in, I know you will be just fine.
You love school.
Love to learn.
LOVE to read.

You are getting so big. Wearing clothing sized 2 years older than you are.
My tall girl - with BIG feet. I think it means you have a big brain. Actually, I know it does! 
You hate getting your hair combed but refuse to get it cut.
You still sleep with your big Dora every night.
And Calvin loves you the very most.
He's no fool.

I love you more than anything my sweet baby girl.
God gave you to us and we are so blessed.


  1. Dearest Susan,
    Love those poetic 'hinge-moment' stories you write so well; from the heart of course!
    Can't believe Ava is going to grade one already...
    But it is such a joy that you share her with your audience.
    At least I feel very blessed and wishing you as a family all the very best; always.
