Scuffed Shoes

We went to a friend's birthday party on Saturday, and we made Ava take "big girl steps" (with our help) while we were there. She played outside and had a blast. When we got home, I put her down for nap, and that is when I noticed the bottom of her new shoes...

I noticed that they are scuffed and dirty, as they should be. I sat down and cried like a baby. It is hard to describe how much a little dirt on the bottom of my baby girl's shoes can mean so much to this mommy's heart. These are more than just scuffed shoes. These are a symbol of the hope I have for my daughter's future. I have waited a long time to see those... Oh, how precious those scuffs are to me!
