We’re celebrating a big birthday this weekend. Our little Miss Avery Jane is turning the big 11. Last night we hit the mall for the number one thing on her list…getting her ears pierced. I held her off as long as I could, even though she knew there was pain involved (lots and lots of pain – I continued to remind her ;)), we went ahead (dangit!). She did great. She chose little star studs for her first earrings. They’re pretty cute.
Yesterday she humored me with our traditional birthday hat photo shoot.
I love our little tradition, it’s so fun to see how much she’s changed over the years (stop growing up, already!).
Here’s some funny outtakes, hamming it up.
Here’s to our sweet Avery Jane who keeps our doorbell ringin’, her hairbrush swingin’, our piano a-playin’ and our home a happy one. Here’s to another great year. We love you so much!
Because it’s too funny not to share, here’s Avery at age five doing a cover on the Cake song: The Distance:
This was her favorite song when she was five. The actions are all her own.
