Six. I can't believe it. Ava's intensity is hard to channel sometimes. She is also such an interesting, thinking, curious child and I love seeing who she is becoming. Ava's soul is very visible to me in these pictures. Her intensity, her sweetness, and her sensitivity. All her best parts.
She didn't like how it felt but was pretty excited about the tooth fairy prospect. Even though she said, "The tooth fairy insn't real. If it was real, it would be magic and there's no such thing as magic."
I was so certain she was too small to ride, she was quite confident she would be fine. So was the attendant. So I let her get on fully expected her to start to scream and need to get off, or try to stand up and promptly be struck in the head by an oncoming plane. This is what happened instead.
