Our First "Big Girl" Moment

Last Saturday was the Daddy/Daughter Dance at church. Avery was so excited to go "to the ball" with daddy.
This morning while we were in our car, the song "Cinderella" by Steven Curtis Chapman came on the radio and Avery started singing along! She told me it was the last song she got to dance to with daddy at the ball. For the rest of the day, she's been singing as much of the song as she can remember and just waiting for daddy to come home so he can sing the rest of it to her.
Brent found the song online, put it on the computer, and Avery sat in the computer chair for close to 10 minutes listening to the song over and over again. I felt like I had a 13 year old girl listening to her first song that created that deep down emotional bond we all develop to some sort of song over the years!
At least for now her emotional attachment to a song is because of her crush on her daddy! =)

So sweet!! She looks so big! We're in the US now, so we need to get together soon! Our cell number is on our blog if you want to have Brent get in touch with Brian!

Avery looks like a Cinderella Princess in her very pretty dress and Daddy is very much so her handsome Prince for the evening.
What memories she will have and their special song also. That may stick with her for many, many years to come!
