Sunday’s Child…. For Ava On Your 8th Birthday

But the child who is born on the Sabbath day, 

Is bonnie and blithe and good and gay.

Sunday’s child is full of grace!

On Sunday, 13th December at 10:50am, Ava-Grace slipped wide eyed and silently into the world and from the moment she took her first breath, my life was changed forever. 

Slow down my precious….

Ava, today you are 8. 

Slow down my angel, slow down, I can’t keep up with you, my heart simultaneously expands with pride over the girl you are and breaks for the baby forever gone. I will treasure the memories of your magical arrival in our lives forever. 

I wouldn’t change a single thing. Except perhaps to slow time down. Your story is extraordinary and I have always believed it is because you are destined for truly great things.

Stay quirky, beat your own drum my baby, you are amazing. Continue to draw and to read, to play soccer and ride bikes. Embrace everything you are because you are awe-inspiring, you are incredible. 

We love you.

A stroll down memory lane….

    Happy Birthday, Ava! 8 years ago my baby was 9 months old, and now she is almost 9! I also cannot believe how fast the years have gone by, and also wish it would all slow done.
