No Longer a Baby

Avery has a birthday coming up this weekend, so to properly say goodbye to the baby that she no longer is, here is an update with pictures of our almost 2-year old.

We moved Avery into Sophie's room a few weeks ago. Instead of moving the crib, we put Sophie into a twin bed and Avery has officially taken over the toddler bed. The first night I saw her sleeping in this I wanted to cry, because she did not look like a baby anymore! (It's a good thing there's a baby on the way to take on that title, or I'd really be a basket case right now! I don't know how people do it when they're on their last one!) As you can see, she loves to sleep with her arms above her head.

Avery loves to color. Sophie's never had much patience for it, but Avery could sit happily coloring for a loooong time if we let her. She's also definitely right-handed.

(I love when she gets really serious and gets on her tummy to do it.) Avery is a happy girl who always has a smile lighting up her face. Love it!

Avery loves to dance. And her favorite dancing partner sadly resides in Utah, not California. She loves to dance with Grampa Lamb, but she is very picky about what music they can dance to. If she doesn't like it, she'll tell you.

Avery is a ham. She loves to make other people laugh and always has a hearty chuckle herself when anyone else is giggling. She is our happy-go-lucky girl.

Avery continues to resemble her daddy the most, and she sure loves him. But she's also quite the mama's girl, so it's a toss up, which is just how we like it.

Avery has been talking well for quite a few months now. People are always surprised at how verbal she is and how easily understandable she is as well. It makes it soooo nice to know exactly what she wants or needs at all times, because she will definitely make it known! We sure love you, Avery Girl, and we're excited to celebrate your birthday with you in a few days!
