She has recently had the biggest word explosion, going from only a few words to probably over 20. Some of her favorites are yes, no, Elmo, ball, book, mama, dada, and sis. She loves to point out her eyes, nose, and mouth, to touch everyone’s ears, and has the best dance moves. She is usually on the go, but when she finally stops she will snuggle and give kisses, or request Sesame Street, which is by far her very favorite show. She loves to dress-up, and will steal Waverly’s purses, princess crowns, or necklaces when she isn’t looking. The cutest! And even though she is all girl, she is a climber just like her daddy was at that age, I can literally blink my eyes and she is on top of something. She has three favorite stuffed bunnies, she was obsessed with this one bunny forever and so I found two others just like it and now they are her squad, she literally goes nowhere without them. It’s precious! 🙂
She adores Waverly so much, they are closer than ever and usually wherever one is, the other is not far behind. They are always walking around the house holding hands, finding things to get into that they really shouldn’t be, but laughing and just being so cute that it really makes it hard to be mad for long. If you would have asked me when I was pregnant with Avalon if we hoped for a boy or girl we really would have been thrilled with either, but I am forever so thankful that they get to experience sisterhood and that have each other. Their relationship is so special and getting to be a part of it will always be one of my greatest joys in life.
Sweet Avalon Elle, we adore you!!!! It’s bittersweet to watch you grow so fast, but we couldn’t love the little person you are turning into one little bit more. Happiest half-birthday!
