Happy Birthday Avery!

Today Avery is 1 1/2 years old! Nonna stopped by with a cupcake on her way out of town. So, although I missed the mini-celebration (Avery is with gigi, I'm at work), that is probably for the better. Cupcakes are my weakness. Nonna says Avery looks much better today - yay! Maybe she will go back to daycare tomorrow? I know she misses her friends! What an amazing, wonderful, miraculous year-and-a-half we've had with our sweet princess. She is by far my biggest accomplishment and the joy of my life. There is nothing else like it in this world. Here are some pics of our amazing journey:

Gosh, I love looking at "growing up" pictures! She is still beautiful and I am glad that she seems to be feeling better!

I love the monthly pics! Look how far she's come since that first night! So tiny! I'd seen preemies through nursery windows before, but never up close and until you do--- you really can't appreciate how small and fragile they are! I still can't get over them letting me and Shelbi back there the first night. I've always wanted to see a 3D or 4D sonogram and never got to, but seeing Avery when she should have still been inside of you was even more awesome. That was amazing!
BTW That bath picture at 2 months is still one of my favorites. It looks so sweet and tender. =)
