With Avi it's like Christmas everyday. You know that feeling you got Christmas Eve as a kid: anticipating the next morning with great relish while enjoying the moments of waiting because even waiting was fun. Well, that's how I feel with Avi. Everyday I look forward to because I get to unwrap her again. And the present I cherish because I know this is as good as it gets, too. Before Avi, I would count my days by marking off events that were to come, like: 2 more weeks until Thanksgiving vacation and I get to see my family, or only 8 more days and we're going to Europe, or 3 more days until the weekend... and so on. Now, I look forward to everyday, because I know Avi will be there, and who knows what she'll do - what gift she'll give us that day. I not only look forward to every tomorrow with Avi, but I also dream of her "firsts". Her first word, her first time down a waterslide, her first puppy... I am so happy I have her to share this life with. And Michael's not that bad either!
