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 “
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
