Watch Me Grow: 21 Months

Ava turned 21 months old on Christmas Eve. Each month is always a little bittersweet for this Mama, but this one is probably extra bittersweet because that means she'll be 2 in just three months. Where has the time gone, seriously?!


I love seeing how she's growing and changing. Right now she's in a phase of repeating everything we say. It's so cute, and sometimes we just throw out words just to see if she'll repeat them back to us. 


Hello, Homogenize.

She still loves Yo- Gabba Gabba, coloring, music and dancing. Singing songs with us and Elmo.

Lately we've been having lots of issues with sleeping through the night. We've never had an issue with her sleeping through the night, but ever since we took away the binki she's been sleeping and then 
waking up in the middle of the night screaming from her crib. 


We've tried a lot of different things during this time. Right now rocking her completely to sleep at night is the only thing that's helping her sleep, but she's still waking up in the middle of the night and crying. 


If you have any tips for this tired Mama, I'd love to hear them.

She loved being at home this Christmas. It was so fun to see her interact with family, play with her cousins and laugh with them. She loves them, and it's so sweet to see. 

Here's some stats about Miss Ava;

She's wearing a size 5/6 shoe. Size 5 diapers. Size 24 month- 2T clothing. 

She weighs about 25 pounds. 


Some of her favorite foods include: milk, apples, oranges, bananas and gold fish. 

We recently turned her car seat forward facing.

Her New Year's resolutions this year are:
- sleep in my own bed through the night again!
- transition to a toddler bed.
- start potty training.

We're so in love with this little girl! We feel truly blessed to call her ours. I'm deep in the planning process of a magical and fun second birthday party for her. I hate to see her get bigger, but I love watching her grow, change and learn new things. 

Love you baby girl!
