All About Amelia - 18 months old!

Amelia, you're 18 months old!!

You weigh 27 lbs - 13 ounces and you're 32 1/2" long.

You wear a size 4 diaper.

You're wearing 18-24 month clothing and size 5 shoe.

You go to bed at 8pm and wake between 9:00-10:00 every morning.

We gave you the paci back after 6 days of NO SLEEP. You were acting stressed out and we decided it just wasn't time. You are taking it at nap and bedtime only. Your pediatrician said to try again when you're two. :)

You've started wanting us to read to you before bedtime again. We did this when you were really little but you went through a stage of wanting to slam the book shut for awhile. :)

We had tornado warnings and had to get in the closet for awhile. You fell asleep in the closet. :)

You're starting to play more on your own.

You pick up your own toys and put them away.

I tell you to stand on your head and you do this.

You insist on wearing your sandals - even with your pajamas. Makes us laugh so hard.

You've started eating fresh banana that's not pureed!

You love drinking out of a water bottle.

You can tell us what comes after 1 and sometimes will even count to 3!

You love to play catch with your new yellow ball that Daddy bought you.

You've started doing this fake baby cry that is hilarious.

The first thing you say when I get you out of crib lately is "book!" Your favorite books right now are Armor of God and Clifford the Big Red Dog.

You've started waving and saying "bye" when you leave the room.

When leaving Cheeburger you kept saying, "BYE!!" to someone behind us. We turned around and you were talking to the James Dean and Marilyn Monroe posters on the wall. HA!

You sing "rain...rain." (Rain, Rain, Go Away)

A few other words you're saying:

"Troll" (remote control)
"Kiss" (when you get hurt)
"Where Go?"
"What's This?"

Amelia, we think you're the sweetest thing around. We love you with everything in us!!

Daddy & Mommy

Beautiful Amelia, I wanted to tell you how special you are too and how I have been following your story long before you came into the world. You are blessed with wonderful parents. xxx

I know I see her twice a week and should realize this, but she is getting sooo big! Its really noticeable in pictures! She is just the sweetest girl ever!

She's such a doll! I'm so enjoying watching her grow up through your posts - and I learn a thing or two about what's to come for Michaela and me.

Please tell me about one of the books you mentioned - the Armor of God. That sounds like something I should have in Michaela's library.

Happy Easter, Averitt Family!!!

She is a little fashionista! Ha, I love it! I have got to meet this child so I can hug her and kiss her sweet cheeks. Lol!

I just love her! She actually gets cuter each month. How is that even possible?!?!?
