Ava turned nine today. Nine. I cannot believe it.
The grandparents came over for pizza, cake and presents. It was quiet and simple but Ava felt excited and special like everyone should on their birthday. I made most of her gifts, a sewing kit, a bag for her knitting (yes! she's knitting!) and a few new clothes for summer.
I also bought her this book. I spotted it at Anthropology and fell in love with it. Secretly I wanted to take it home so I could read it over and over again.
The pictures are darling and Audrey's life story is told in such a touching way. I cannot say enough great things about this book.
Off to bed with one more day till summer crossed of the calendar. Happy Birthday Ava Love.
