Our Sweet Spitfire...

Well the day is fast approaching, Avenlea's 3rd Birthday...and as I couldn't sleep this morning I sat reminiscing through Avenlea's first two years.  We always talk about how she gives us a run for her money, that she is a spit fire and that she has added new meaning to the word drama, but this mornning I find myself thinking of different things about her.

I fell asleep on the couch last night and Adrian leaves me there because since prego if he wakes me I am up for hours...that is a totally different post for another day.  I was awoke by a sweet voice saying oh no i pee'd, oh no I pee'd and running up the stairs (she had no clue I was on the couch and since daddy put her to sleep in underwear I decided he could here her news first hand).  As I listened to them clean up her mess...she was so sweet...daddy I pee'd, he reassured her it was ok, changed her sheets, and got her cleaned up.   She even helped him carry the wet stuff out to the washer.  All excited that she was helping.  

Helpful is my daughter...she is always willing to get things for others, take something somewhere or just plain help.  She loves to help clean, cook, make her bed, plant flowers or the garden, and so on and so forth.  If you say you are going to do something, her response is I help mama.  :)  

The other day Jackson was struggling to get in the top draw of his dresser...so Avenlea showed him how he could pull out his bottom draw and climb up on it like a bench to get what he needed.  helpful yes...probably not so safe (at least til we bolt the dresser to the wall) but so sweet that she showed him how she does it.  


She also loves people....yes her mama, daddy, and her big brother Jack, whom she looks up to a great deal....but that is not what I am talking about.  This girl is constantly thinking of others.  She asks if we are going to see her friends all the time, prays for all her little friends at church every night and gets very upset if we forget to pray.  She has such a sweet servant heart and I pray that she never looses that.  That God will continue to nurture that heart and allow others to see the sweet little girl that she is.  

My baby girl turns three on Monday and she is just plain growing up into a beautiful little girl.  Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!!
