 Dear Ava,
You're 6!! I can hardly believe it! We celebrated a day early with Grandma and Grandpa Lund and John and Victoria. We had pizza for supper and you requested ice cream cake so we had one of those too. You got loads of clothes for school and Grandma and Grandpa bought you a bird feeder. After supper we walked down to the beach and relaxed for a bit. You said that it was the best birthday ever. 
I think your ready to start school. I know I'm ready. Sometimes you seem so grown up and helpful and other times it's like you're three again and you make me want to pull my hair out. How can this be? 
Its been amazing to watch your transformation over the past year. For example, you wear socks! There is less complaining about how your clothes feel and you seem braver somehow. There is still a hesitation when it comes to new things but nothing like it was before. 
You love fashion and style and you're still into princesses. I don't think you realize it yet but I think your love will be science and nature. Your interest in birds and flowers and how things work has blossomed over the past 6 months. 
You like to spend time with people. You told me that the thing that makes you feel the most loved is not gifts or hugs or words of praise but simply just spending time together. My goal this year is to make time for just us. 
You love to sing. I love it when you sing. 
You and Jaina get along so well when you're not fighting. :) You have a sweet spot for your little brother. 
Daddy and I love you very very much. Happy Birthday sweet girl.
