It’s been the most dramatic year EVER for Ava Grace Strickland — mostly because it’s been her only year so far. The daughter of Tye Strickland and The Bachelor 13/Dancing With the Stars 8 veteran Melissa Rycroft was born in February and just celebrated her first Christmas.

As Melissa tweeted with her adorable family pic, “Merry Christmas!! Wishing everyone a happy holiday!! :-).”

Melissa also tweeted a pic of baby Ava Grace playing by the tree on Christmas Eve — “Sneaking into presents at Mimi and Papoo's house...!!” (Mimi and Papoo?!) It looks like little Ava is wearing another pretty bow in her hair. She’s becoming known for those. Signature style already? Watch your back, Suri Cruise!

This year should be pretty interesting for Ava and family since her mom has a new book coming out in June and the family will be featured in a new CMT reality TV show. Since mom and daughter will be in Los Angeles for Melissa’s work, we just hope that lil’ gal doesn’t lose herself out there. Stay real, Ava!
