Happy Birthday, Avalon Elle!

Our Avalon girl is TWO!  She is so very excited about her birthday, when we asked her what she wanted, she said “pink”.  Followed with, “not purple, that’s for sissy and it’s Ava’s birthday not sissy’s”.  Every night this week she has sat in her crib singing the entire “happy birthday” song, going through all the members of our family and then the entire cast of Sesame Street, each person got to have their own moment.  So very like her.

 Sweet Avalon Elle, everyone needs one just like her.  She’s just the best, so full of love and thoughtfulness, she won’t let anyone leave the house without “a hug, kiss & a high-five”, which just sums up her personality so well.  She is pretty laid-back most of the time, and definitely has been our “easier” child to discipline, the hardest thing we have had to go through with her is bedtime the last couple of months because she just can’t let us go (all three of us literally stand at her crib promising her we will see her in the morning and covering her back with the blanket!).  She loves all things girly, tutus, bracelets, and getting her hair done just like her big sissy, but also likes trucks and dirt just like her daddy (who she looks exactly like).  She is way more sensitive than Waverly, and is much more timid about things like big rides or places with a lot of people, but also is our little comedian.  She loves to be silly, she notices when she does something funny to make us laugh and will keep doing it forever.

This age is my absolute favorite with her, hearing her little voice say new words all the time and still wanting me to hold her at least a couple times a day.  In some ways I think my relationship with her has been different than Waverly since obviously I have to share my time like I didn’t before, but in other ways I think I have been able to enjoy her more because I am more confident now and know how quickly things change.  I constantly find myself staring at her and watching her every little move, everything about her is just precious and she is such a light in our life.

Today we are celebrating her with a trip to see Elmo and all the Sesame Street characters, her absolute favorite, and then will be having small brunch with family this weekend.  Her big party will be with Waverly in a month, we opted for a joint party for the girls this year.  Because, way easier to plan one party, and also because they truly are so close that we thought it was the only way to go! 🙂

HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY to our baby girl!  We absolutely adore you and love the little girl you are becoming more every single day! XO

    Happiest of Birthdays sweet little Avalon!! It's is so hard to believe it's been two years! I'm still in denial that Oliver turns two on Saturday! How did they get so big so fast?!

Happy Birthday, Avalon Elle!

Our angel is one.  ONE!  I can hardly believe it.  Avalon, you are most perfect addition to our family.  You light up our lives with that sweet smile of yours every single day.  Your pure happiness is absolutely contagious, and it is impossible to be in a bad mood around you.  You are curious, you are adventurous, and even at just twelve months old, you are kind.  You are our laid-back little lady who goes with the flow 95% of the time, but you let us know when you have had enough.  You love to snuggle, to dance, and you are a mama’s girl all the way.  You sleep with your little butt up in the air and love to point to let us know exactly what you want.  Your favorite game is hiding under blankets with sissy and you eat all.day.long even though you are still somehow in just nine month clothes.  Your big blue eyes melt every single one of us, and it’s safe to say that you have stolen all of our hearts.  We adore you and can’t wait to start a new adventure with you today as our one-year old!

My girls are my greatest accomplishments, my greatest challenges, and without a doubt, my greatest joys.  Parenting isn’t always easy, but every single day I am so thankful that these little ladies are ours and that we get to be along for their ride every single step of the way.  Wishing a happy one year as parents of TWO to my husband, I couldn’t do this thing with anyone else!
