Happy 4th Birthday, Avery! (& 20 Questions)

Avery, you are FOUR today, and we are so thankful that God gave us YOU! You've grown up so much this past year, and we love all the thoughtful conversations we're able to have with you. It's been so much fun to watch you grow into such a sweet little lady. We love you like crazy!!

You love to play! You play with dolls, puzzles, Landon, and whatever else you can use to stretch your imagination. You and Landon chase each other in circles through the house, and you love when Daddy chases and tickles and plays along. You also love to play outside on your bike and skates, jump on the trampoline, blow bubbles, and play in the water.

You wear 4T shorts and skirts and size 5 tops, while your shoes are 10/11. Your stats from your 4 year checkup are: 39 lb (75%) and 42.5" tall (90%).

You are SUCH a great big sister. You're the first person Landon asks for when he wakes up, and you make him laugh all the time. You're super excited for Harper to get here so you can share a room with her!

You love the Texas Rangers. You're one of the only kids I know who can carry on a conversation about her favorite player (David Murphy!) and watch an entire game without getting restless. You frequently pretend you're going to the games, and you love to listen to the games on the radio in the car.

You love to sing! You make up songs all the time, but you also love to listen to the Newsies and Shrek Broadway soundtracks, VBS CDs, and Hide 'Em in Your Heart. 

You're spunky and stubborn, but you have a really sensitive heart. I love seeing God working in you, and as you get older and more thoughtful, we're quickly realizing just how tricky this parenting thing is going to be! We want more than anything for you to love Jesus with all of your heart and to love other people and care about those who are hurting. We know God will do awesome things with your life!
