Ava is 2 years old!!!

Ava Drew, you are TWO YEARS OLD today!!! I can not believe it. These have been the best two years of my life. You are so spunky and the sweetest little girl in the world. You definitely keep me on my toes and there is never a dull moment in your world but I love every minute of it.

You talk like you are 13 years old. You repeat everything we say. You LOVE Mickey Mouse and Barney right now. Your favorite food is probably apples and oranges. You can't get enough of your fruits!! Your favorite thing to play with is your babies and you are SO good with your babies. You will rock them and say "shhh", you will change their diapers and feed them a bottle. It's the sweetest thing. You love to sing "Wock a by baby" while rocking your babies to sleep. You are going to be the BEST big sister!!

You weigh 21 pounds and you are roughly 31 inches long. You wear a size 5 shoe and you are still in 12-18 month clothes. Yay for being able to wear our winter clothes two years in a row!

You aren't potty trained yet but you are definitely ready. I just haven't taken the plunge yet. You hate to wear clothes and you go without them most of the time we are at home.

You love to wrestle with daddy on the bed every night before you go to bed.

Some of my favorite words that you say are "Oh Mam" (oh, man), "daink" (drink), "Baf" (bath), "Pees" (please), "Wuh Jew" (Love you),

For your birthday today, we met up with a couple of our friends at the Children's Village in Lions Park to play and also do a story time and craft time. It was chilly outside but I think you had a lot of fun. Then, we came home to eat lunch and take a nap. Once daddy got home around 3:30, you opened your presents and then took you out to eat at Texas Roadhouse. You behaved better than you EVER have at the restaurant. You wouldn't sit in the high chair but you stood next to me and ate and behaved so well. Then, we came home to eat birthday cake! I think you were really full from dinner because you only ate a few bites of the icing and you were done.

For your birthday (from mommy and daddy), you got a baby doll car seat, Melissa & Doug blocks, some play food, a coloring book, water paint, princess cup, and a play microphone. From Gigi, you got some dress up clothes, play slippers and a wand.

You are the light of my life sweet Ava Drew..or as daddy calls you, "Missy Miss". We can not wait to see the little girl you are turning into. We love you more than you will ever know!!!

16 weeks!

I am 16 weeks with baby boy!! Wow!! I can't believe it. Time has gone by WAY too fast!! 

This picture was taken at 15 weeks with Ava Drew. 

(Last weeks picture with baby boy)

Gained 1 pound. Babies heartbeat is 145. 

Thankfully, I have been feeling MUCH better and back to my normal self again. That first trimester was rough. I am enjoying cooking and eating again! I haven't really had any food cravings yet. One of my most annoying symptoms  is the acne that has decided to break out my back and part of my face. So annoying..and gross! 

It is so fun to be expecting a boy. I haven't done much shopping because this baby boy is already set in the clothes department...thanks to my amazing friend from Germany that let me have her bags and bags of boy clothes! Seriously, he has more clothes than Ava. But if you know me, you better believe this baby will get a few monogrammed/smocked things!! :) 

I still haven't felt this baby move yet. I want to say that I felt Ava move at 15 weeks so I am hoping to feel this baby kick soon!!
