10 months

I can't believe this little baby girl is already 10 months...just two months away from being the big ONE!   

-Ava Kate can wear some 9 month but mostly 12 month.  She wears a size 4 diaper.

-She wears a size 2 shoe but has never really worn them!

-She doesn't keep a hairbow in her hair very long right now and hates headbands.

-She has 4- 8oz. bottles a day.  We are trying to phase out her afternoon bottle to have 3 bottles a day.

-She eats 3 meals a day.  She loves to eat!  She now eats all tablefood and has usually has whatever we are having to eat .  She is very independent and only wants to feed herself. 

-She has one tooth on the bottom but has been teething really bad lately. 

-She is a slobber box and has been waking up a lot at night due to the pain. 

She is still a great sleeper (when she isn't teething!). She goes to bed at 7 and wakes up between 7 and 8. She takes a morning nap for about an hour and 3 hour afternoon nap.


-She is all over the place now!  She crawls everywhere and is pulling up with ease.  She isn't cruising quite yet but I feel it will be soon.  This girl has places to go!

-Her favorite places to play are the playroom and the bathroom!  She loves the playroom and could play in there by herself for hours if you let her.  And I have to constantly remind everyone to keep the doors to the bathrooms closed because this little girl loves to play in the toilet!!

-She is such a laid back baby and really easy going but boy she keeps me on the GO!

-She is "talking" and squealing all the time.  It seems with big sister doing all the talking she has to be heard sometimes! :) 

-She waves and claps but not when you ask her to.

-She likes to turn off the light in her bedroom....this was a favorite of AR's too!

-It is SO hard to change her clothes/diapers.  She is crawling all over the place and trying to get away. Riley said it should be considered an Olympic Sport!

-She has one goal right now and that is to terrorize her sister.  I see many, many fights already in the future with these two.  Ava Kate seems to do things already just to bother Anna Riley.  Didn't realize it started that young...I thought I still had a few more years!!


She truly brings so much joy to our lives...I can't belive time has flown by so fast!!
