Ava’s 3rd Birthday

We were originally going to keep Ava’s 3rd birthday very simple. We planned on taking her and a friend to build-a-bear and then to Mrs. Field’s for a cookie. BUT, Ava has a little photo album of her first birthday which includes lots of pictures of the guests. Ava said she would really like everyone to be there again for her birthday party so that’s just what we did. Both Scott and I were so busy we really didn’t have a chance to take a lot of photos.

Ava had a lot of fun. I’m really glad we went ahead and hosted a big party for her. She felt very loved and her face just beamed as everyone sang happy birthday to her!

I can’t believe my baby girl is 3!!

Here’s a picture of Ava when she first turned 2:

Hasn’t she changed so much? She’s lost her baby face!

    Jenn, thank you so much for the post. I agree with you that there is a big change between the second and the third year. Happy birthday to Ava again. Love, Hülya
