Little Miss Ava Ruth was 15 months old on August 14th. We didn't get her in for her check up until Sept 1st.
Her 15 month stats are:
29 inches (8%)
19 lbs 14.5 oz (7%)
18 inches (head, 41%)
At 15 months Ava is so much fun! She talks a lot. We don't understand everything she says but if she gets frustrated with you she will take you by the hand and try to show you what she wants. Some words we hear and understand on a regular basis are:
- Bye Bye
- ogan or gan gan (Logan)
- baba (banana)
- ammy (Grammy)
She loves to blow kisses and wave good bye. She actually plays this game with her baby often. Ava loves to bring you her shoes to put on for her but as soon as she gets in the car she wants you to take them off. She loves to go outside and play. She thinks she is as big as her sister and is absolutely fearless. She climbs on everything and can make it up to the top of our play structure without any help from us.
Because Carli loves to sit at their little table and color, Ava can be found sitting there attempting to color just like her big sister at least three or four times a day.
Ava sleeps all night. She takes two naps a day - at least one of them usually is about two hours. We've come a long ways in the sleeping department!
Ava eats all the time. Literally, she loves to eat. She loves fruit and really doesn't care much for bread, crackers or veggies. Right now her favorite food is a banana because she can hold it herself and take big girl bites.
Ava finally has two teeth. They are both on the bottom. Her second tooth broke through on her 15 mth birthday.
Ava LOVES one on one attention and many days she will do her best to skip her afternoon nap so she can spend as much time as possible with just Momma or Sassy. Her afternoon nap is by far her shortest and I truly think it is because of this. She is still a Momma's girl, and I wouldn't change it for the world! She does melt her Daddy's heart in the mornings when she calls for him after she wakes up. She gives him the biggest kisses and waves every morning before he leaves for work.
Happy 15 months little Ava Ruth Hays! You are an amazing little angel and we are so proud to be your parents!!
