Ava's 18 months old!

Where did the time go? I swear it was yesterday that we brought her home from the hospital, all bundled up in pink and purple. My tiny little newborn with a full head of hair, and constantly moving from the very first day. But, no, she is 18 months old and in the throes of toddlerdom. She had her well baby check today and it is confirmed that she has a successful career as a supermodel ahead of her.

Weight: 20 lbs 12.6 oz (6%)

Height: 32.5 inches (74%)

Head: 47.5 cm (76%)

Apparently she's tall and thin with a big head. And she's also working on her skills as a diva. Yesterday she decided she did not want to come play outside at Drew's preschool. In protest she threw herself on the ground and refused to walk. I tried to leave her there, thinking she'd get upset we were leaving and follow us, but she just stayed there. So I took her hand and half dragged her out of there, then picked her up football style the rest of the way. My goodness. I think we may have a Naomi Campbell on our hands!

izabell is starting to throw little fits also! She went from standingto her tummy in a blink and layed there crying the other day! She was protesting the docotrs visit! Good thin she is short so she did not have far to fall! no super model here:) but possibly one very good actress

At least she didn't throw a cell phone at your head!!

Why do I always think that Ava is older than Dylan?? Must be the proliferation of hair.

Ahhh... yesterday Molly gave herself a fat lip throwing herself down in a tantrum. In the process she bounced her face off of my bed frame. Sigh... so glad to hear that I'm not the only one!

Happy half-birthday Ava! Keep the tantrums going sweetie - Mommy and Daddy will give in eventually! :)

Looks like we all have curious little toddlers - Brendan loves a good tantrum when he doesn't get his way!
