this little girl, is my favorite little girl ever.
though we may not share any "actual" family, she is my niece, and i her crazy auntie L. i love her as though she's my own, because she's my best friend's daughter. the fact that just nine months ago she was born, and now she's nine months old, boggles my mind.
so, clearly we've established that i'm more than a bit partial to her, but honest to God, ava's got the SWEETEST and HAPPIEST personality i've ever seen in a baby girl. she's always smiley, and laughs the minute she sees my face. i'm choosing to see this as a compliment rather than the baby thinks i'm funny looking, but i really couldn't care less because her giggle is too precious for words, and if laughing at my face brings it on - BRING IT.
for her nine month photos her mom and dad met my man friend and i at new buffalo beach in new buffalo, mi. i grew up on the beach, but more importantly, it's also home to redamak's. i know i've talked about this place already (countless times) but i'll do so until i'm blue in the face. we snapped a few pics, tommy (man friend) was a GREAT support and lugger of all things camera/props/blankets/sunglasses, and then scarfed down some amazing burgers. ava, as per norm, was a-dor-able.
enjoy! (and go to redamak's!)
