Ava Kate is ONE!!

This year has flown by!! Ava Kate is such a blessing to our family.  She brightens our day.  We just love our baby girl so much!!!  It is hard to imagine what it was like before her!
Here are some things she is doing at 12 months:
- She weighs 21.9 lbs and is 29 1/2 inches tall. 
-She wears size 4 diapers and 12 and 18 months clothes.
-She hates wearing a hairbow/headband or anything in her hair.  She usually pulls them out and then tries to put it back in.

-She takes a 1 1/2-2 hour nap in the mornings and a 3 hour nap in the afternoon.
-She goes to bed between 7 and 7:30 and wakes up between 7:30 and 8.
-She sleeps with her two bunnies and her favorite pink blanket. 
-She doesn't really have to be rocked and sometimes she won't let us but there are times when she wants that and I don't turn it down.  I will miss rocking them one day!

-She still only has 2 teeth but Dr. Roberts said she could see the top ones about to pop through soon.  We still have a LONG way to go and AK and teething aren't good together!
-She eats anything and everything!!  There isn't anything this girl won't try.  She is our garbage disposal!  She eats really fast too!!
-She did great switching to whole milk last month and only the sippy cup.  She LOVES her milk!
-We will probably start giving the pacy only at nap and bedtime soon but I am not rushing it as much as I did with AR. 

-She is crawling all over, pulling up on everything and trying to climb on anything she can!
-She will walk if you hold her hands.
-She will push toys and walk with them.
-But she is not too interested in taking off with walking yet.
-She is a wiggle worm and is all over the place...you can't keep her still!!

-She claps and waves bye bye.
-She says Dada, Mama, hey, bye and babbles other things that sound like they are turning into words! :)
-She loves to give kisses but she can also be a little rough and pull hair and pinch! 
-She just loves to torture big sis.  Whatever Anna Riley has...Ava Kate wants and she will pin AR up against a wall to get it!  (I have pictures to prove it!)  She is a tough one!

-She giggles all the time!  It is the cutest thing!
-Here lately she has been a Granna's girl or Daddy's girl.  She loves my Mom and sometimes prefers her over me! haha

-She loves to dance!  She will stand up and start shaking her booty!  SO funny!  When I did Zumba during my pregnancy, everyone always said she would be my little dancer!
-She doesn't sit still long enough to watch anything on T.V.  She watches it a little in the car but she has never really cared for any particular show.
-She loves playing in the playroom!  She isn't a fan of the baby toys and never really has been.  She already loves the kitchen, baby dolls, and all the little people sets.
