Here we are, one month until we have a ONE-year old! I can believe it and I literally can’t believe it all at the same time, if that makes sense. The days have flown by but it’s pretty much impossible for me to think of a time when Avalon wasn’t in our family. We are all obsessed with her, that little face, her signature tongue, and the happiest personality that goes with it.
This month we have officially decided that along with Avalon’s absolute sweetness comes a girl who gets into everything. And I mean, everything.
We call her our fsu baby (if you know what that stands for), nothing is safe around her and she prefers drawers, cords, shampoo bottles and plastic bags over toys any day. She is fearless, thinks its hilarious to throw herself backwards and her favorite game is to hide under blankets with Waverly. She still remains the happiest baby in all the land, but is definitely getting feisty just like her big sister.
Not for nothing, my wild little girls just have to be a direct genetic result of my husband and we are bound to have a quiet, shy little boy one day, right?! 😉
Avalon is still a rock star sleeper at night, she’s pretty much clockwork from 7:30pm – 7:00am. She’s a belly sleeper and light doesn’t bother her at all, which makes for lots of sweet sleeping baby pictures!!! She hates pacis but loves dolls and any kinds of stuffed animals, and will just sit up when she wakes up to wait for Waverly to come running in yelling “sweet girl, I missded you so much! you got so big and so much hair while you were sleeping”. She still nurses in the morning and at night, which I think is mostly for comfort, she loves it and is definitely a mama’s girl!
She can stand but prefers to hold on to me, which I am 100% ok with. She still loves to be in the solly or to be held, and is definitely a snuggly baby. Lots of cuddles, my favorite! She uses her voice more than ever, her go-to words her da-da, ma-ma, and she can use her hands to say bye-bye, clap, and most recently learned how to give kisses. She adores her big sister, they grow closer each day which is truly one of the greatest parts of each passing month.
Oh Avalon, we just love to love you! Thank you for being you and for being ours.
