This little beauty is one year old today! The saying that "The days are long but the years are short" is becoming so true to me. This year has flown by and I cannot believe how much my Baby Girl has grown and learned in that time.
Ava is now an official walker! She has the cutest little "wiggle walk" with both hands up for balance. She can stand up (without holding on to anything) when she falls and keep walking along. She loves swings and slides and water and dancing and basically anything that involves movement. Baby Girl is an ACTIVE little girl. She does not like to sit still and is definitely not a cuddler...she would much rather be moving.
Sweet Girl is still sleeping well at night. She usually goes down around 8:00 and wakes at 5:00 to nurse but will then go back to sleep for another hour or so. I have been so blessed to be able to breast feed Ava (Noah never did) and it continues to go very well. I am sure we will think about weaning in the next few months, but for now I am savoring every moment.
Ava's hair and eyebrows continue to be red and her eyes are a brown/hazel color (depending on the light). She definitely has the beautiful pale skin to match her beautiful red hair. She continues to love a variety of different meats, vegetables, and berries but ALWAYS wants to feed herself. She will knock food out of your hand so it falls onto the highchair tray and then pick it up to eat it. I think we have a very opinionated little girl on our hands.
Ava's current stats are:
Weight: 22 pounds 12 ounces
Height: 30 inches
We had a hard time getting a good picture of both kiddos. For whatever reason, Ava was not terribly excited to sit next to Noah....well...I think it was less about sitting next to Noah and more about the sitting in general.
