avery at one.
Well, it's here, folks--the week of Avery's first birthday. So, to celebrate and kick off this special week, today I am sharing a little profile of the little lady of honor. ((She has her 1 year appointment with the pediatrician on Friday, so I will come back and edit this post afterward to add in her stats.))
Name: Avery Amelia
Age: 1 year
Teeth: 8, working on #9 and #10. She of course decided to get them out of order, and got her first molars early. Lady does things her own way.
Nicknames: Avy, Buddy, Woman, Lady, Big Grown-up Lady, Tweety Bird
Loves: Her puppy brothers, any animals, reading books, being outdoors, Mom's Parks & Rec / Tom Haverford / Treat Yo'Self mug (she waves at it every time I use it), eating, baths, people-watching at restaurants and stores, soft blankets, peek-a-boo, playing rough and being flipped upside down, Mommy's Yoda impression.
Hates: Having her face/hands wiped off after eating, being held by strangers (or family members she doesn't see often, yikes).
She can: Cruise around on the furniture, take a couple unsupported steps, wave, give kisses, pat people or dogs, clap her hands, army crawl, roll all over the house, understand TONS of what we are saying to her, wiggle/shimmy, hold her own sippy cup, feed herself when handed her special short spoon.
She says: hi, Mama, Dada, Mah-Mah (Mamaw), Pap-Pap (Papaw), "ma-MAH-ma" (banana), yum. But she mostly just says Mama and her own little made up word that sounds like "Obama." X-D
Favorite foods: Bananas, raspberries, mandarin oranges, peanut butter toast, peas, and marshmallow Peeps or anything pertaining to marshmallows!
Favorite books: Her board book of The Jungle Book and The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boynton.
Favorite tv shows: Plaza Sésamo (she only ever gets to see the Spanish version of Sesame Street when it airs in the morning at my mom's house!), Sid the Science Kid, and Super Why.
Favorite toys: Stuffed animals, soft blankets (she literally dives head-first onto piles of blankets on purpose), farm animal Little People toys (the cow especially), Mega Bloks first builders, and the dogs' toys when she can sneak one when we're not looking!
This little lady has celebrity status around these parts this week. So, don't be surprised if you see more posts about her throughout the week! ;-) #proudmama
