The song I chose for Avery's video is "Handprints on the Wall" by Kenny Rogers. "Days go by so quickly, summer turns to fall, seems like only yesterday, that you began to crawl. So don't be afraid to take that step, I'll catch you when you fall. I don't mind if you leave behind a few handprints on the wall". These words remind me that time does go by so quickly. When I think about how much we've done in the last 6 years it makes me wonder where the time has gone. The words also reminds me of something that I try to remember everyday... it is the little things in life that matter- they are really the big things, like spending time with my family and enjoying story time with the kids- the everyday stuff, even if it may seem boring or a nuisance at the time- these are the things that matter!
And so Avery, my hope is that we will always be there in your time of need to catch you when you fall- whether it is learning to walk or something much bigger. Know that you are loved very much and we are so happy that you are in our lives. Happy Birthday our Little Goose, we love you!
