So the day finally arrived. Ava turned the big one last Friday the 19th of August. I think I was more excited than she was, I couldn’t even sleep.
I was up extra early, planning the day ahead. Ava was still in bed asleep with daddy and I was patiently waiting for them to wake up.
Her face lit up when she seen her big balloon and all her presents. We went out for breakfast to celebrate and then headed to a play centre. Her first time to experience something like this and she was amused by all the kids running around and the smile on her face would melt your heart.
Ava and I were absolutely exhausted by the time half 3 came so we headed back home to have a nap. She fell asleep in the car and didn’t sleep very long when we got home.
The rest of the evening consisted of a big dinner, a cake, bath time and cuddles. I was a bit cranky because I didn’t sleep much which was my own personal fault. Safe to say we all went to bed early that night.
It was quite emotional for mammy and daddy as that year went by so fast. Still remember the day we got to hold her in our arms for the first time so vividly. I have enjoyed every single moment, she has been a tremendous joy in our lives. Let the love continue.
