1 Year Stats & Milestones.

Since I forgot in the post below, here's a brief wrap-up of Ava at one year old:

-First and foremost, she's awesome.
-She weighs 21.5lbs, and is 30.5" long.
-She not only walks, but runs circles around me. Literally. It's like training for the Austin marathon every. single. day.
-She says "mama", "dada", "baba", "hi", "bapa" (for backpack - too much Dora when A's with daddy...), "dora" (no joke. it's like she's tattling on him...).
-She can tell you what a doggie says ("oof"), what a monkey says ("ooh ooh ah ah") and what a kitty says ("ahhh"). Apparently our kitty has tonselitis judging by her kitty noise.
-If you ask her where something is in her favorite books, she can point at it.
-She LOVES books. She'll sit there and pretend to read them, turning the pages and pointing. This melts my heart.
-She nurses 4-5 times a day, with 1 of them falling in the middle of the night. Wah wah.
-We made it an entire year on breastmilk only. Not even a drop of supplementation. I'm proud of this :)
-She eats three meals a day, consisting of any number of solid foods.
-She still cannot tolerate dairy. We're uncertain about eggs.

I'm sure there is more, but I am here and, since David is off work, she is there, and my mind is blanking after a year of interrupted sleep.

I cannot wait to see what the next year brings!


  1. Happy Birthday to both of you. Sounds like she is doing amazingly and omg congrats on the breastfeeding. Thats incredible.

  2. Way to go B & Happy Birthday! What a year it has been.

  3. Happy birthday Dollface and congratulations to your fab mama on an amazing year!

    Dying over the kitty noise!

    Her and The Cute are like the same height. I can't help but notice A's long, gorgeous baby-legs in her pictures. And I love her hair. Too bad she doesn't live closer...I know a short, curly-haired cutie who is just a few months older than her who would LOVE to be her BFF. ;D

    Damn you for noticing my badge. How did I screw that up? Have you ever seen anything like it? Are you impressed? I fixed it now. Reluctantly. Because SOMEONE finally noticed. *LLOLFRY* (Loud lol-ing for real, y'all.)

  4. Happy 1 year to both of you!! And congrats on making it 1 year breastfeeding!

  5. I love this update. "She's awesome" Doesn't that totally sum these babies up?! Love it!!

  6. Kudos to you for getting to 1 year of breastfeeding! Heck, we got to 8 weeks and I was done - just couldn't keep up with it. It still makes me sad that I couldn't have done it longer.

    Anywho...A sounds like she's well on her way to being an articulate young lady with all her words...Noah still just grunts and screams - typical boy i guess..hahaha..
