18 months old...

hard to believe that title belongs to the tiniest price girl! i still expect to walk into her nursery every morning and find my "baby"...although that's becoming more difficult based on all the "not so baby" noises coming from the monitor!

she's a pistol to say the least...and we affectionately call her the "bobcat" lately because she is rather hard to tame!

even so...i love that little thing to pieces.

our little blue eyed, cotton top is sugary sweet underneath all that sour! she has really good manners for someone so little and will usually say "peas" & "tank kew" on her own...or hit you in the face...she's either hot or cold!!!! HA!

she is extremely verbal just like ella was and talks up a storm! she truly has too many words for me to list but some of her more recent additions are potty, pank "spank" (hmmm!), tow you "hold you", gucka "sucker", drink, ca "car", & hug...just to name a few! her little voice just couldn't be any cuter!

she is v.e.r.y. independent (just like maddie) and likes to do things all by herself. she weighed 23 pounds at her last visit but must be storing some of the food she eats in her hollow leg because this little one can flat out eat me under the table! she loves things like sweet potatoes, spaghetti, any fruit, beans, broccoli slaw, cottage cheese, and avocado...and dumdum suckers! ella probably didn't even know what a sucker was at this age...but when in rome you do as the romans, right?!?!?!

she still faces backwards in the car...and quite frankly, i think she would tell you that she has the best seat in the house! she gets a "front row view" to the road show going on in the back! (aka ella & madeline!) she takes a great afternoon nap for usually about 3 hours and goes to bed like a champ between 7:30-8 and sleeps until about 8:30 in the morning (sometimes it can be 9 or 10...without any sedation required!!!)

she's a complete ham! lately she has perfected a "fake cry" that makes me belly laugh every time! she loves to have her "cup & her bunny" when she "rocks" at night and will frequently ask for hugs! m.e.l.t. my heart!

although she's a bit of a handful lately, we love this little firecracker more than we ever could have imagined! she loves her big sisters...and i'm pretty sure she loves being the baby! those big girls definitely look out for the little one. this mommy can't imagine my life without these pink trio...

and i'm so thankful for our latest addition!

ava ashley...what a blessing you are!
