Our little peanut is 18 months! I can’t believe how time has flown! She is my world and makes every day better than the last. She brings happiness on a bad day and brightens my dark days when the frustration of infertility gets to us. She is beautiful and smart and I can’t wait to see how she will grow and what she will do in life.
Ava LOVES to read! Whereas before she wouldn’t sit for two seconds to sit and read, she will now cuddle up with us and read her books if we “shit” in her “cha” Her favorite books are animal books so we can practice sounds. She knows Moo, Quack, Roar, Baa, but my new favorite is the hiss of a snack and Whooo of an owl – so cute!
We are only going to daycare two days a week in the summer to hold our spot. It’ll be nice to have the two days to get things done and to wear her out.
