Two Years

Our sweet Averie girl is TWO years old!  I can't believe that another year has passed!
I have not been as good about updating you all about Averie.  What better opportunity to update you than a birthday post?  In usual fashion, here are her two year old stats:
Weight: 27.12 pounds 57th Percentile
Height:  34.65 inches  81st Percentile

She is getting so big!  Averie is in full blown toddler stage.  She has definitely hit the "terrible twos", but with all the naughtiness, she is still the sweetest little thing.  Averie has started talking up a storm just the past month or so.  Her vocabulary is getting quite impressive.  I am so grateful that we are finally to the stage of being able to converse with our child.  It really helps with the tantrums when we can stop the crying and have Averie tell us what she needs.  Thank goodness!  The guessing game was getting really hard!  Averie says the funniest things.  Here are some of our favorite Averie sayings,
"Owe me bum!"
"Sargie, com-ere" & "Sargie, stopit!" (she is such a boss)
"When Mommy/Daddy back?" (she constantly asks this if one of us leave)
"Hi Dadda/Momma"
"Love you" (LOVE this one)
"Mommy?!?!  Mommy?!? Mommy?!?" (until I say, "What baby?" and she proceeds to ramble)
"Mommy, I pooped."
"Look it!"
"I broke it."

That's all I can remember for now.  

Some of Averie's favorite things are shoes, dancing, singing, playing with Sergeant, eating, playing with her babies, playing with Daddy, playing outside, coloring, stickers, and of course watching Elmo. 
Averie is getting so smart too.  She knows most of her colors and has started counting.  So far she can only make it to three, but that is pretty good if you ask me! 

For Averie's birthday, I really wanted to get some updated pictures.  Given our last experience with having a professional take the pictures, I decided to just shoot some myself.  I don't know how all of you talented photographers do it! I hate that I am not very good!  I also hate that my child will not smile for the camera to save her life. What a stinker!  Either way, we had fun taking these pictures (even if you can't tell from Averie's expressions).  She LOVED her tutu I made her for her birthday.  She was also super stoked that she had Elmo on her shirt.  Enjoy the pics of my sweet angel!

 So serious!

Well here is a half a smile.

Averie is obsessed with tractors (I know, tractors?!).  Anyway, she saw one by our neighbors house and I had to catch her reaction. 

Averie's "WHOA!" face.

 If only we could figure out a way to keep those fingers out of her mouth!


 I LOVE this one!

 But not as much as THIS one!

There's a smile!

 "Hmm, I think I will just eat this..."


 Happy Birthday Sweet Girl.  Mommy and Daddy love you!!
