All About Avery

Now that Avery's 2 and has had her 2 year check up at the doctor, I thought I'd do a little update on how Avery is doing at 2. :-)


26 pounds

24 Months/2T

Shoe Size:

Still in size 4

You haven't gotten any new teeth that I know of. I believe you're still at 16 teeth.

Your hair is getting lighter with the Summer sun but it's still a light brown and you have such beautiful curls. You're getting your first little hair cut in 2 weeks just to get it shaped up a little bit.

Your eyes are a beautiful brown, just like your Daddy's.

You HATE to go to sleep, but once you do, you are a great sleeper. You generally sleep through the whole night from about 9:00 at night until around 8:00 the next morning. You take one nap in the afternoon that lasts around 2 hours.

You are a really great eater. You eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Some of your favorites are apples, carrots and corn. You also love sweets and you never pass up a french fry. Ha. You love to eat though and eat quite a bit at meals and throughout the day.

Favorite Toys:
You love baby dolls, your kitchen and your princess castle, but you also like playing with anything Jackson is playing with. You don't mind playing with cars, trucks and trains. :-) You love to be outside playing. You'd spend all day outside and are always sad to have to come inside. Like most 2 year olds, you have lots of energy, so you love to run around and play outside.

You started gymnastics class right after you turned two and it's really helping you to learn how to wait in line and take turns. You'll need these skills for when you start Pre-school this Fall. We've had you and your brother on the waiting list for Lindbergh Early Childhood Education ever since we closed on the new house and we finally got an e-mail saying you will be going there in the Fall. You are going on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and you'll be in the Butterfly class!! I'm really excited for you.

You are talking up a storm. We can hold whole conversations with you now, which is really great! You say all kinds of hilarious things and you are so smart! You amaze me all the time with how much you know.

You have such a personality! I don't know where you get it but it's just too cute! You are quite the out-going and talkative girl. You tell everyone you see in stores and at restaurants, "hi!" When I took you to the doctor a week or so ago for your check-up, you greeted everyone who came in the door with a "hi!" You can be shy at times, but for the most part you are pretty out-going and make friends easily. I hope this continues! You're stubborn and independent. You march to the beat of your own drum. You want to do everything for yourself and think you are much bigger than you are. You're also very sweet and polite. You always say "please" and  "thank you" and "you're welcome" and even say "bless you" when any of us sneeze. You are sweet and check to make sure we're okay if one of us gets hurt. You are still a Momma's girl and generally choose me over anyone else. My 2 favorite times of day with you are when I first get home from work and you come running to greet me and give me a big squeeze and when I'm putting you down for bed and we read stories and sing songs together. You're so sweet and snuggly.

Max (or as you call him Maxi) our dog. You give him hugs and kisses and say "I love it" You love your "Maxi MooMoo"!
Paw Patrol
Minnie Mouse
Swinging at the Park
Playing Outside
Bracelets and Necklaces
Cupcakes (or as you call them "cut-cakes")
Going for wagon rides

Hunter (Our dog who won't leave you alone when you have food and chews up your toys)
Going to bed
Diaper Changes
Getting in your car-seat

So that's you at two Avery Rose. You brighten our days and are just so much fun! You're a perfect combination of sweet and sassy and I absolutely adore you! We love you to the moon and back Avery!
