Avery update

Avery is two years and two months old and is a ball of energy. We often find ourselves asking how she has so much energy and isn't completely exhausted by the end of the day. I mean, the girl is non-stop all of the time!

One thing we love about Avery is watching her personality develop. She is very particular about how things are done and meticulous about certain things. She could sit and "organize" her toys for an hour and be perfectly content doing so. She may be a little OCD about how things are done. (I wonder where she gets that from??)

She loves to help clean... again, OCD?

Back in November she was almost potty trained. She wore big girl panties for two weeks (except during naps and night) and was doing great! She even wore big girl panties during our Thanksgiving holiday at Grandmommy and Poppy's house where there was so much activity and did wonderfully. Then, November 30th she began cutting a molar and had a sinus infection on top of that. We quickly digressed and haven't been back in panties since. She won't even tell us if she has to go anymore. It's like potty training never even happened..... so sad.

Has the most tender heart. There are days when she tests me and pushes me to my limit, but underneath that two year old attitude is the sweetest heart you will ever find. She is polite and always says "please" and "thank you" (some times she still has to be prompted). She shares most things with her sister and if you ask if you can have or borrow something that she is currently occupying, she almost always says yes. (This is not so when she is playing with kids her age, mind you). Always makes sure we don't leave Kinsley out- no matter what!

I love my sweet little two year more than words can express. Sure, she can irritate me to the point of tears, but I hope I never forget the way she walks up to me and says "hi mommy" with that adorable little smile.
