Sweet Ayvri Belle - I remember that first day I met you. You were so perfect and pink and soft and I smiled as I held you and cuddled you and talked to you for hours that day.
I remember a year after that, you were wiggly and giggly and a big huge tease and I smiled as I sat with you and we painted your nails and you jabbered.
I remember the next year, all girl and pink and purple and frills and the big sister who took care of the babies and was my best little helper around the house and I smiled as I watched you hold your baby sister and tell her stories.
I remember how careful you became that next year, how you wanted to do everything that I did and how you wanted to so badly to learn everything you could. I smiled as you asked a million questions and expected real answers.
I remember the next year as I put you on the bus and cried. I remember as you came home and delighted in showing me everything you could do, but still loved playing with your baby dolls and combing their hair and I smiled as you still wanted me to hold you and tell you stories and put my hand on your face.
