Avery at 3 Years Old

As the clock strikes 1:53pm we will begin celebrating Avery's third birthday. Our little beauty is a fireball, she keeps us on our toes and she is a thrill a minute. She is funny and smart.  She is full of energy and exhausting.  Avery isn't a very good listener but the frustration with her poor listening skills fades away when she tucks her head into your shoulder, in fact, the instant she tucks her head and wraps her legs around your waist all of your worries fade away, her cuddling powers are just that, powerful! Avery loves fruit snacks and loathes brushing her teeth, a cavity just waiting to happen.  She can take down an entire box of Fruit Loops in a single week, yet getting this child to eat a vegetable is likely going to remain on the to-do list until she earns her college diploma. Our lives are richer because she is our daughter, she reminds me daily just how powerful unconditional love is, and reflecting on her introduction to the world gives me pause, just enough to thank my lucky stars each and everyday I get to battle with her at bedtime.  Because without that perspective I might forget how thankful I really am to have a little spitfire to fuss at 35 times a night.
