Happy Birthday, Avery!!!!!

(I did two posts in a row today. No, it's not Christmas. Feels like it, though, huh?)

Today my baby girl turns 8. She's such a sweet girl. Seriously, she's my saving grace. Every mom needs a daughter. I couldn't have asked for a better one than her. These pictures are of her at her dance concert last week. Isn't she beautiful???
She's so funny. She's got the best sence of humor. She's clever and witty and fast with her comebacks. Makes her mama proud! And best of all? She looks just like me!!!

I love you, Avery! You're the best daughter EVER!!!

She does look like you. And that's a good thing! :)

Happy birthday, Avery!

People have no idea how much she looks like you, A. Put up a picture or two of you at her age, and watch the jaws drop!

Yes, every mother ought to have a daughter. Not so sure about multiple daughters.

And please re-read this when Avery is 11 and starting her year-long run with PMS. Then you'll be writing "Every mother needs a daughter. Too bad I have a deranged hyena with a toothache instead."

Happy day, Miss Avery! Glad you're still so cute!

It occurs to me; Avery is one year younger that you were when I got married. Dang! That's little! No wonder all my blog stories are brand new to you!

Oh she is so sweet! She looks so cute in her dance outfit. I totally agree about having a girl, I MUST have one even if I have to adopt one, I will have a girl!

AMBER. I love that photo of you and your daughter. Believe me, having a daughter is a slice of heaven. I "wonder" ---REALLY -- confused ---as to where she could possibly have inherited her wit and come-backs, DUH

I have a love/hat relationship with my kids birthdays! I kind of hate them growing up, but love seeing who they are becoming. She's so cute, and who wouldn't want to look like you?

Happy B-day to her. She's gorgeous. You're going to have to lock her up in a tower in a couple of years. ;)

It's about time you put some pics on your blog! You two are so cute. Seriously, you are such a babe!!! I can't believe how old your kids are getting... mine are never going to be that old... right?

Watch out for 8.

You've heard of terrible twos?

Try the Awful Eights.

Good luck.
