HAPPY BIRTHDAY AVA REESE!!
I can not believe that you are one years old baby girl! It seems like just a little while ago that daddy and I were driving home form the hospital with you, our little bundle of joy! Time has flown by so fast and you change and grow so much every single day! You have brought endless smiles and laughter to our home! You are just so stinkin' cute! You have way too much personality for your own good and I know we have not even scraped the tip of the iceberg in that department!
You are lovable, so sweet, determined, funny, a flirt, curious, studious, and sassy!
You are walking all over the place!
You LOVE to laugh and giggle!
You like to play, "I'm going to get you" by running away from mom and dad. You run a little ahead and then stop and shrug your shoulders up and wait for us to tickle you and kiss your neck!
You give high fives.
You give kisses!
You give hugs when we say "can we have some love?".
You are now blowing kisses!
You flash a big grin when I say cheese or give us a smile!
You look forward to bath time every night.
Your hair is growing and really starting to look as if it is going to curl!
You are a good eater!
You LOVE your sleep! You always let us know you are ready for nap or night-night by walking over to us- lifting hands up to be picked up- and waving bye-bye with bunny in your hand!
You love your daddy- yall have so much fun playing together!
You still do not crawl but get up from a laying or sitting position via the bear crawl!
You are beginning to repeat more words even if just once.
So far you have said or do say, Yaya-Papa-Mama-Dada-Jo suh( for Josiah)- Aba (Ava)- Dut (duck)- hot- Pup or Puppy- Ba Ba(bottle)- Bye Bye- Hey! That is all I can think of for now!
You LOVE to read! You like any books and I find you reading them all the time! However, flap books provide that extra measure of fun!
You are very social and like people!
You still have a seriously high pitched squeal/scream when you get upset!
YOU ARE SO MUCH FUN! We love you and can't wait to see what adventures each day holds! Happy 1 Year Birthday baby girl!
We had a GREAT 1st Birthday Party with the family in Houston this past weekend! Thank you everyone who came and made Ava's day super special! I will post about the party with pictures once I get some. They are all on Mom and Jamie's cameras!
