16 months- Feb. 6

Ava Kate turned 16 months on February 6 and I have been a little under the weather so I am a little behind.  Here are a few things Little Miss AK is doing at 16 months:
-She wears size 18 month clothes.  We are ready for spring because we are running out of winter clothes that fit her! 
-Her shoes size seems to be around a 4/5. 
-She wears size 4 diaper.
-She takes 1-2 naps a day.  We are at the point where we can do without the morning nap on most days. The days Anna Riley is home, she refuses to take one because she is so busy playing, but the days Anna Riley is at school she gets more fussy and takes a short one.  When she takes them, it doesn't interfere with her afternoon nap, so she can take them as long as she likes! :)  
-She still goes to bed around 7 at night.  She still does great at night (knock on wood!) 

-She still eats pretty much anything. I have noticed she is not a fan of apples, she always spits them back out. 
-She thinks she is as big as her sister and wants everything that AR gets.  She likes to drink the Capri waters and eat fruit snacks like Big sister does.  
-She goes in the pantry all the time and brings out "bite bites" or sometimes even oranges with the peel bitten off!  
-She still loves her milk and has about 2-3 cups a day.

-She is walking and almost running everywhere now!  She stays on the go! She does not like for you to push her in anything now that she can walk.  
-She is also a climber!!  She has climbed on our coffee table, the kid table in the playroom and her favorite spot to climb up on is the brick hearth on the fireplace...she likes to sit there!  
-She loves to get into cabinets!  We have never "child-proofed" our house with locks and such but there are a few strong rubber bands on a couple of the cabinet doors at the moment to keep her from taking out every Tupperware bowl that we own since that seems to be her favorite!!

-She loves to play "peek-a-boo" and usually puts her hands on top of her head rather than her eyes!
-She likes when we sing songs!  She loves the "Wheels on the bus", "ABCs" and "If you are Happy and you know it."
-When she will be still for a few minutes, she enjoys looking at books.
-She and Anna Riley play great together most of the time unless AK is trying to take things away or messing up what Anna Riley is trying to do!  

-She loves animals!!  
-She loves to look at pictures!  Every morning and night she wants to walk down the hall and look at all the pictures and point to them and at night she will give them a kiss.  She will also go get the picture of Riley's Mom off his nightstand and walk around with it kissing it.  
-She is attached to her pink blanket that she sleeps with at night and lately she has just loved this brown bear that her cousin, Brilyn, handed down to her.  She has been taking it to bed now too and loves on it all the time!  
-She hates to cuddle! :(  She will sit in my lap IF I have snacks and milk and books but no cuddling...not even when she doesn't feel well!  

-She can give some really serious looks!  It is hilarious!  I can't wait to see what her personality is going to be like (or maybe I can!! haha)
-She jabbers all the time and is starting to say more words...a few new ones are:  She says "thank you" all the time now, "bite bite", "PopPop", "Ganna", "Sister", "bear", "dog",  "duck", and I know there are more but I can't think of them right now.
