How was every one's Memorial Day weekend? Mine was great since my parents and brother were in town! I have been pooped since they left yesterday morning though. We had a full weekend of shopping, running around, going to the lake and my parents helping us do some things in the yard. I will post some pics from our fun filled weekend here in a day or 2.
Tomorrow marks a very special day. It is the FIRST birthday of my best friend Ashley's little girl, Avery! I remember when she was born a year ago and talking to Ashley a couple times in the middle of the night to see how she was doing. I wasn't able to be there since we don't live close, but she called me to keep me posted and we laugh now because the last time she called me I could tell she was pretty drugged up, ha ha! But when I finally saw pictures of her sweet little girl, I was so proud! Ashley and I have been friends since 6th grade and really became inseparable best friends our SR. year of high school. We have been through so much together, we were each others Maid of Honor at our weddings, and now she has a sweet baby girl and I am so proud to get to watch her be the best Mom! I look forward to the day when she gets to give me tips and pointers through my own pregnancy! It will be a whole new chapter of our friendship!
I had the pleasure of helping throw her baby shower before Avery arrived . . .
and before that, had SO much fun taking maternity pictures of her!
Avery is seriously the prettiest baby girl! I knew she would be adorable of course, but she has turned out to be so gorgeous, just like her Mommy!!
Due to long distance I am not able to share this exciting and special day with Ash and Avery tomorrow. But I know it will be the BEST, most SPECIAL day!! I still cannot believe she is going to be a YEAR old!! It seems like just yesterday Ashley told me she was pregnant! I get to see them both next month and I am SO excited to hold and squeeze this little cutie!! I miss her so much, I miss them both!
So here's to Avery on her first birthday! You are a precious, precious girl and I love watching you grow into the little diva your Mommy has made you to be! Happy Birthday Avery!!
Love, "Aunt" Linz
