Twenty Months Old!

Avery turned 20 months old yesterday! It's hard to believe we'll celebrate another birthday in just a few short months! Where has the time gone?!

Avery is still eating pretty well. Lately her meals are smaller than they were-I don't know if she's just not as hungry or if she's just not interested in food, but they're definitely not the huge meals she used to eat.

Her sleeping has been all over the place. A few weeks ago she was a sleeping machine for a few days-13+hours at night and some days she took a 4 hour nap on top of that!! Then the following week she went to the opposite end of the spectrum-about 10hours overnight and would fight taking a nap. All I know is bedtime has been a struggle lately. She used to go down very easily around 7:30pm and now if we get her down around 8, she'll still play in her crib for an hour (or more!). There have been a few nights where I go to bed and she had just fallen asleep. I think she's becoming a night owl already! Her naps have been pretty good-usually around 2 or 2.5 hours which is great.

She's still sporting the size 3 diapers and size 4's for overnight. Still in 12 or 18month clothes. She's wearing a size 5.5 shoe now.

One milestone this month was getting her first haircut!

I also took her out in the snow for the first time!

We also said goodbye to our daycare provider which was sad for us to do.

Avery has started counting! A few weeks ago she counted to three and just yesterday she counted to five! She also knows a lot of colors (purple, pink, black, white, green, red, blue, yellow, brown, orange)! She also likes to try to pull us up from a seated position to a standing position.

Some new words this month: "pink", "hello", "Jerri" (our cat), "peaches", "backpack", "map", "pull", "yellow", "pizza", "ketchup", "seahorse", "green", "water", "faucet", "rock". You also say some new phrases: "miss Daddy/Mommy", "bye bye _____", "hello ______", "rocka baby", "no Mommy", "Mommy nice". I know she says a lot more, but it's hard to think of things when I have a chance to write them down! She is quite the chatterbox these days!

I remembered to take her pictures just before she went to bed, so she's in her PJ's for this month!


I told her to smile!

My two favorites...

and showing off her teeth!
