Happy Birthday Averie!


April 15th is just Tax Day to most, but to me its super extra special because it is also my daughter's birthday...

My sweet Averie would have been 9 today. NINE! 
Even tho I'm balling my eyes out, I want to reflect back on her short life...
She was a funny looking little baby weighing in at 6 lbs 15 oz...
She was what I lived for after losing Lane...always putting a smile on my face....
She grew into the prettiest little girl with a HUGE personality....
I miss her beautiful brown eyes...that big dimpled grin and her hilarious little voice.
She was stubborn beyond belief even after being diagnosed with Alpers too (you can read our journey HERE). She was such a trooper despite how her body was failing her- always taking her meds and never complaining that she couldn't be like everyone else.
She loved horses, Sponge-bob,  her "connections"(collections), the farm, her family and most of all her baby sister. She was always concerned about "her baby".
This is one the last pictures of my two girls playing together.
Averie got very sick after this visit to grandma's...
My sweet girl fought so hard, but was welcomed home to the Lord less than 6 months later....
My heart breaks with grief.
 I miss her so so so so much. I wish that the world could have known her...I know those who did were forever changed by her spunk and attitude. She challenged me every day, taught me patience, and perseverance. I will be forever grateful that God blessed me with the her, no matter how short the time.

Averie, you will be forever in my heart.

Happy Birthday Averie! 
We all LOVE you and MISS you!! 
So much!

  5. Amber, I'm a new follower, and I didn't know about your enormous loss. I think that Averie was a beautiful girl, and her personality shines through those pictures. I can imagine that this anniversary is both a joyous and difficult one - your description of Averie shows just how much love she was surrounded with during her entire (though much too short) life.
