Avery melts our hearts every single day.  LITERALLY.  every. single. day.  She is so overflowing with joy and laughter and smiles.  She is so incredibly friendly to pretty much everyone she sees.  She's a jabberbox.  She dances anytime she hears music.  She loves on her baby sister.  She loves on her animals & dolls.  She is just such a vibrant and joyful little lovebug.  Brian & I are in love with that child and are so so thankful that God blessed us with little Averton!!  She brings an unimaginable amount of happiness to our life!!

Love you Aves!!!
