But today, she is official.
Two years old.
And I swear on a stack of Bibles, this has been the fastest two years of my life. I remember back when Avalon was only maybe a month old, during the very difficult stage when I was positive she was going to cry for not only the next hour but for the rest of her life, a friend of my mom’s was comforting me and offered up some solid gold wisdom. She said that as a mother the days are long, but the years fly by. Isn’t that the truth?
I’m so grateful for these past two years, and am so blessed to be Avalon’s mommy. Seeing her grow, change, and evolve into her own little person is nothing short of amazing.
She is my little Punkin, and no matter how old she gets that will never change.
Happy birthday, sweetie.
