Ava is 13 months old!

Ava turned 13 months on the 11th. Her personality has really come out lately.

 Ava, you weighed 16 pounds and 4 ounces (5%) at your 1 year appointment so I am sure you have gained a little since then. You are 28 inches(10%) tall and your head circumference is 17 inches(25%). YAY! We are out of the negative percentiles!!! You wear a size 2 shoe and size 3 diaper. You wear size 9-12 month clothing.

You are a great sleeper! You go to bed at 8pm and wake up around 7:30am to eat then go back down for another 1-2 hours. We got you down to one nap and you usually go down around 12:30 or 1pm and sleep for a good 2-(sometimes)3 hours. You eat 3 meals a day and snack throughout the day. You are always eating! Every time you see food or you see us eating, you say "moooore". You are still nursing 2-3 times a day. I am trying to wean you to cows milk but you prefer me.

You can walk but still prefer to crawl which is okay with me! When you are around older kids, you walk. When you are at home, you usually crawl.

You are a little stinker these days and into everything!! You like to open all my kitchen cabinets and play with the mixing bowls. You LOVE to push the kitchen chairs around the house.

You have started dancing this month every time you hear music. You will bob your head and bounce your legs. Cutest thing ever! You LOVE "The Office" theme song. We watch it almost everyday and every time you hear it, you clap your hands and get really excited!

You are a talker and try to repeat everything we say! You now know the sounds to a dog, cow, duck (your favorite- "kak kak"), horse, and snake. You can say "more", "cross", "trees", "car", "this" (sounds like "dis"), "that" (dat), "cracker" (cakcak), "cookie" (cookay), "nose" (no), "eye". There are lots more but I just can't think of them right now.

You are such a happy baby but you get shy around other people right now. You don't like for us to leave you in the nursery at church but hopefully you will get used to it soon! :)

You are a HOOT and I just love you to death!!! I love the little girl you are becoming!
