Dear Avery,

Your Street Photography

Today you had your four month appointment and it made me so sad to think that I have recorded near to nothing about your life. So here I am, recording, in hopes that one day you will appreciate it.

The doctor was excited to have such a happy baby in the office, he had had quite a few babies a little older than you that are starting to become aware of what happens at the doctors, but you had no clue what was about to happen. You smiled at him, the way you do at everyone. You get all excited and stiffen up your body and your teeth-less smile lightens up the room. You got your shots, you cried for 5 seconds and then instantly did what you love to do, grab your feet and try to eat them. Sometimes I cant believe how easy going you are.

There is something so special about you, and I can't take any credit for it, it's just who you are. You make friends with everyone you come in contact with and you bring joy into all situations. A little over a month ago I took you to a wedding and the bride couldn't get enough of you as we were all getting ready together. You eased her nerves at a stressful and exciting time in her life. She told me how you made her day even more special.

You came into our lives at a very difficult time. Mommy had lost her job, daddy was having to make some tough business decisions, we had lost your great grandma, and the adjustment from Daddy and Mommy being single to married was a tough one, there were A LOT of changes in a short amount of time. But you came and you eased our burdens, our load has increased but all we have to do is gaze into your big brown eyes and see your happy, full of life smile to quickly feel at ease.

I ADORE you. I look up to you. I can only hope that I will be able to help you nourish your sweet spirit into a loving, serving, member of our Church and society. You are my inspiration and I am grateful everyday to have you in my life.
