She is a mini-Reese! So darling…I love her mama! It breaks my heart that her parents are no longer together, though😦 I thought they were one hollywood couple that actually had their priorties straight and were going to make it…

Happy belated B-day Ava! She shares her birth date with my aunt. Mine is the 16th, which is exactly a week after Ava’s. That’s so cool.
