I can’t believe my
baby little girl will be two in just two short weeks!! J This last year has FLOWN by I feel like. I’m trying to be excited about it and not too teary. She just gets more fun with every new stage! We are beyond grateful for our sweet little girl!
Avery, Some things I don’t want to forget about you at this age are:
You started being able to repeat any word we ask you to about a month ago. It’s so cute to hear the way you say things!
You can say your name when someone asks you. You pronounce it “wavery”. Ha!
You love to cook in your kitchen, you say “I cook mommy!”
You love to cuddle, or snuggle as you say it. I love this!
You love to be read to and must sit in the lap of the person reading. Sitting beside is not good enough!
You still sign for a lot of things but you say the word with it. May favorite is “eat” and you point to your nose instead of your mouth. J
You tell us your food is “trash” when you don’t like something. Little toot!
You are a pretty good eater, still on the list of favs are: avocados, chicken, pancakes, spaghetti, apples, ketchup(you love this and will dip ANY food in it which grosses mom out sometimes)
You have been working on learning numbers and colors. Purple is your favorite and you like to point out everything that is purple. You can count to two and love to show us when you have two of something.
You love butterflies aka “why-whys”, dogs(any kind of animal really), choo choo trains, & baby dolls.
You love to show me everyone’s mommy and daddy at the store, on movies etc. When we see two dogs or two of anything, one has to be the momma and one is the baby. J
You like to pretend to be a baby. The other night we were at dinner and daddy and I were admiring a little tiny newborn at the table next to us. Her mother was rocking her and you crawled up in my lap and wanted me to rock you and feed you your milk like a baby. Melted me!
You favorite movies are Dora(obesessed with her and Boots!) and Max and Ruby
Your favorite thing to read is your Bible. You get so excited at night to read before bedtime. If you ever act upset when we say it’s time for bed, all I have to do is say "you want to read your Bible?” and you take off running so excited!)
Your blanket or "night-night" as you call it is your favorite thing! You can't sleep without it and we don't take it in stores or any where out, so when we are somewhere away from home, you like to talk about it and ask where it is a hundred times. You get soo excited when leave cause you get to have your "night-night" in the car. Not sure what we will do in kindergarten without it!! You still sleep with your paci aka "pappy" and you are quite fond if it. :) No plans of taking that away any time soon, no worries!
You love dancing! You break out into a dance at least 20 times a day, and not just a little dance, some major booty shaking! Daddy is slightly concerned about this. ;) I’m excited for you to start ballet in Sept!
You like to pray. It’s so cute to see you fold your little hands and say “pay”. You won’t let us forget at any meal. Other day at Hobby Lobby with mommy you asked the check out lady to pray with you. You insisted, despite me telling you that we would pray on the way to the car. You were irritated that she ignored your requests!
I love you to the moon and back baby girl! You are mine and your daddy’s world and our reason for everything. I love you and can’t wait for this next year with my two year old, tantrums and all!!
