Avalon Elle, age two & a half, her birthday is June 6th so she is officially closer to THREE than two.
Forever as sweet and silly as they come. She’s really grown into her personality lately, she loves to make anyone laugh and once she knows it’s working, will do it forever. Her little voice is my FAVORITE, the way she pronounces “Waver-wee” and says “here am I” when she walks into a room, I wish it would stay forever! We are officially in that independent stage, she is determined to do everything herself, we went through the same thing with Waverly but I am pretty sure it’s at a much higher level this time around since she wants to be JUST LIKE her big sister. She loves preschool, is a little obsessed with the boys there (so funny!), and always loves to tell us about her “boyfriend” when she gets home. Her favorite color is currently blue, she loves balls and anything with wheels, and doesn’t go a day without requesting Peppa Pig. She still has the sweetest demeanor in the world, can make anyone fall in love with her, and is the worst eater in the history of EVER (would literally only eat cookies three meals a day if we let her). She’s just the best, still looks so much like my husband and reminds me of him too, which is the sweetest thing ever to me.
People always said that once your babies aren’t technically “babies” anymore that it gets way easier, but I’m just going to go ahead and call it like it is (at least at our house), and that’s certainly not the case. The challenges are way different, but still definitely there, and some days by the time bedtime rolls around goodness I am READY. The highs and heart-melting joys are still very real though too. It never fails, just when I feel mom guilt or wonder if we even come close to know what we are doing raising these little people into good humans, they do something amazing and my heart swells with pride and I just can’t even believe that they are ours. They will always be so much more than worth it.

Wishing you the happiest FEBRUARY, one of our favorite months of the year!!!!!! XO
I love their matching outfits–this picture is super cute!!
Those roller-coaster emotions you speak of are so very real here too, with 2 boys that are no longer babies but challenge us, sometimes even harder, than when they were. Those validating moments make it all worth it, though!
