12 tulips for 12 months

^^ Brooks picked out these pink and "o-janch too-wips" for Aves...his little sister who is ONE YEAR OLD ^^

Yesterday was our Ava's birthday...that girl is ONE!! We can hardly believe it.

Oh. We. Love. Her. 

Sadly she was sick, even though you wouldn't think so from that last picture, but Aves was such a little trooper. A bubble bath with big brother and a long nap were on the itinerary...both happened twice. Plenty of tissues and vaseline were used on her tender nose, and oils rubbed on her feet. And snuggling in our PJs, all day long. So, not much traditional birthday fun was had, but that'll absolutely happen as soon as she's back to her normal, happy and healthy self. We're all about extending celebrations for more belated birthday goodness. 

So grateful for the day we met our little Ava...it was love at first sight.
She has been apart of our family now for twelve months.
Twelve of the best, most crazy and exhausting, but oh-so sweet, months ever.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AVA LU!
