Avalon Elle is Three!

Our Avalon girl turned an entire THREE years old yesterday, I am not sure where the time has gone but goodness I am loving this age with her!  She was so adorable about her birthday, we had been working on holding up three fingers for a couple weeks now and she keeps asking “now that I’m free, I can do the monkey bars, right?!”.  The girls will be having another joint birthday party this year at the beginning of July, so we celebrated with a laid-back birthday brunch at one of our favorite restaurants over the weekend and then yesterday with an afternoon at the pool.  Simple and sweet, just like her!

Some things I always want to always remember about Avalon Elle from this age.

She has the biggest heart and is just THE sweetest.  She never lets anyone leave without a hug, and if she knows someone is upset, will get to close to them to sure they know that she is there.  She especially does this with Waverly, she will go give her hugs and say “it’s ok, sissy”.  She already loves her baby sister and gives my belly multiple kisses every day, I cannot wait to watch her become a big sister soon.

She talks a mile a minute, once she is comfortable where she is, and has a northern accent that is so random but is seriously the cutest thing in the world.  She tells the most detailed & long, drawn-out stories and also finds a way to convince you to let her do most of anything, she’s so dang cute when she asks that it’s nearly impossible to say no.

Of all the places we go, she probably likes being home the best.  She will play in her playroom for hours, mostly with trucks and balls and anything Peppa Pig.  The first thing she asks when I pick her up in the afternoon is when we are going home, she gets so excited to put on her favorite pajamas and just lounge around with her family.

She looks up to Waverly so much, is always thinking of her and wants to do everything just like her.  The other night the girls were supposed to be sleeping in their joint room, we could hear Avalon talking so we went in there and she was sitting on Waverly’s bed, right next to her under the blankets, reading her a book while Waverly was sleeping soundly.  Sweetest thing everrrrr, and so true to her little personality.

She is so silly and loves to make others laugh.  If she knows that we think whatever she is doing is funny, she will do it forever.  At the same time, she is super shy at first and very careful about what she chooses to do, but always remembers everything about anywhere we are at, and tells us all about it later.

I still remember the day she was born three years ago so well, after another crazy long induction and labor, she came out with the face of a little angel, looking just like her daddy and with the sweetest demeanor.  So much has changed, but so much of that is still the very same.  Happiest birthday, Avalon Elle, we love you to the moon and are forever thankful you are ours!
