1: God made the world with its towering trees, majestic mountains and restless seas. Then stopped and said, “It needs one more thing... someone to laugh, dance and sing. To walk in the woods and gather flowers, to commune with nature in quiet hours." So God created little girls, with laughing eyes and bouncing curls, With joyful hearts and infectious smiles, enchanting ways and feminine wiles, And when He'd completed the task he'd begun, He was pleased and proud of the job He'd done. For the world, when seen through little girl's eyes, Greatly resembles paradise.

30: My Life!
31: The next pages are snapshots from my life this year. Whether it's looking for airplanes with Mommy or shooting hoops with Daddy, every day brings new adventures. I am a Daddy's girl (except when I'm sick, then I want my Mommy!) I had a very busy year. I learned a whole lot! I can walk and run without falling! I can talk! I can drink through a straw! I know my colors and shapes and I can count a little bit too! I love to watch Dora the Explorer, the Mickey Mouse Club, Max and Ruby and the Fresh Beat Band. I love to play outside especially in water! I love candy, especially pop rocks! I have to have my paci - most of the time I have 3 or 4 of them. I love teasing my dog, River....I like to stand where I know he can't get me because of his chain and laugh at him! I love all kinds of animals - dogs, cats, fish, ducks, even rats! I love to go and visit my Bebe and Papa and Bubba and Dixie, Cocoa and the cats! I love to walk down the road and visit my Granddaddy and Nana J and Buddy and Daisy. I love to spend time with my Gramma and Papa Mike when they come to visit me from North Carolina. I love to go to the Exxon because I know my Aunt Julie will have a surprise waiting. I have had a great 2012.....just look at all these pictures from this year and you'll see for yourself. I can't wait to see what 2013 will bring!!

54: Ava I don't get to see you as much as I wish I could I've missed so many special moments in your life I want you to know that my not being there Has never been because I don't care I think of you every morning and wonder how you'll spend your day I think of you when I see other little girls who are just about your age I think of you every night before I fall asleep And I pray that God will watch over you, your little soul to keep. Because you are so young, sometimes I worry you'll forget me It's hard to remember a Grandma that you hardly ever see And sometimes I worry that you'll never know That your laughter, your hugs, your kisses Your sparkling brown eyes and ginger curls Have become my reason to try harder to be someone - worthy of your love, - worthy of your trust Someone that you can be proud of. Most of all I want you to know that no matter how far we're apart - Love will keep us close. And no matter how many firsts I might miss You'll always be first in my heart.
55: Ava, I am so blessed to have you in my life! I have loved watching you grow this past year and I can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring! Love you pieces & bits, Gramma Kim.
