I can’t blummin’ believe it; Ava is 16 months old today. SIXTEEN MONTHS!!!! I know all of us parents are so boring and say the same thing every month/year/second… but the time goes by so fast! It’s scaring me a little bit actually. She’s two months away from being one and a half and that is just crazy to me. I STILL can’t believe I’m a mother to be honest.
Every day she understands more of what we say and ask her to do. She says ‘hi’ and ‘bye’ in the cutest little voice, and she spots babies everywhere and says ‘hi baby’ (even if it’s a picture of her). She is so much fun to be around and she makes me laugh all day long. She’s also very clingy and whingey right now, but we’ll let her off because she’s cute and we love her.
She can run around pretty fast now, can climb UP her slide the wrong way (not scary at all!!), has sprouted two new bottom teeth in the last few days, and is finally started to learn to settle herself back to sleep. Hallelujah. She’s also becoming very bossy. I don’t know where she gets it from.
I’m so excited for the summer months; playing in parks, making friends with other bubba’s, running barefoot in the grass, going on holiday for the first time, our first plane trip with her and watching her be a flower girl at my sister’s wedding. She makes everything into an adventure and I can’t wait to see how she changes in the next few months. Happy 16 months baby girl!
