Happy 1st Birthday!!

You are the Joy of my life. I can't believe a year ago I was laying in a hospital bed anticipating the greatest moment of my life. All my dreams of being a mother and having a precious baby girl couldn't even compare to the reality!! You are your Daddy and I's EVERYTHING! Thank-You for bringing so much more meaning to our life's! You are the sweetest little girl with such a lively spirit! I love you with all of my heart,

And now for the birthday party pics. We had the party back in Tampa so that the whole family could come! Ava had such a good time and of course was spoiled by everyone! (Thank-You everybody for coming and helping out with the party :) ) Everything turned out great - I'm a little dissapointed in the lighting that I had for the pictures and I didn't get all the pictures that I would have liked to , but I managed to get a few good ones! ....

We had the party at the Community Center where our home is in Tampa. It turned out being the perfect space for Ava's Party!

She loved her smash cake...very polite and proper at first and then we helped her dig in and there was no stopping her!

We go for Ava's 1 year checkup on Friday, so I will post her new stats this weekend. I also have a interview on Thursday at the hospital down here, so everyone cross there fingers and say a prayer.
