She has over 475,000 followers on Vine, and she's only 3 years old.

In October, Local 4 told you about a little girl with a big personality.

Now, the Ava from Dearborn is gaining national recognition.

Ava, directed by her mother Katie Ryan, was listed at No. 8 on Buzzfeed's list of the "Top Vines of 2013."

The vine was titled "lol how to flirt" and was posted about 3 months ago.

“I just kind of started it to capture these funny moments to show friends and family, just a few of us,” said Katie.

Over are the days of lugging around a video camera, Ava’s parents capture her hilarious comments on their iPhones.

They aren’t set up, they aren’t made up, the videos are 100% Ava.

“Pretty much every day is surprise with her,” says Ava’s dad, Daniel. “She’s not scripted, we don’t tell her what to say. She is completely off the cuff. I mean we can’t make this stuff up.” 

“I thought, 'OK, maybe I should stop,” said Katie. “But the reaction was so positive and I would get messages from people saying they look forward to her Cines every day and if they are spreading joy I am ok with that.”
