Avalon Elle, two years & 11 months. Funny, silly, sweet — overall such a little character and so much fun to be around. She talks a mile a minute, especially in the mornings, and somehow picked up a northern accent that is one of my favorite things in the entire world. She has zero interest in doing dance or gymnastics like her big sister, but loves trucks and balls. And digging in the dirt. Her favorite color is blue and she will remind you all the time of it, and also is really into saying “no boys allowed” right now, it’s so funny! We are starting to see a little bit of the terrible two’s, she is super opinionated on things like having a specific sippy cup or bowl, and is definitely at that stage of wanting to do everything herself, but can come out of being upset pretty quickly. She LOVES to joke around and make us laugh, does little dances to be silly with her eyes closed, and when she is trying to convince me that she should do something I have already said no to, will come up with a way around it and say, “how ’bout that, mama?”. I just cannot believe she is going to be a big sister soon, she is still so tiny and feels like such a baby to me, maybe because she still isn’t potty trained, but mostly because she is so delicious and lovable.
The girls relationship is stronger than ever, of course they have their moments (a lot of them), but it’s so amazing to see how quickly they go from arguing to laughing and holding hands, true sisterhood! With our house renovation going on there have been lots of nights where they have had to be split up as we stay with family, and every single morning, one calls my phone and immediately asks to talk to the other. There really is nothing sweeter in the world, watching their love is one of my most favorite parts of being a mom and I am forever grateful I get to be a part of it.
