I am so so so sad that Ava is almost one. (She will be 10 months in 4 days).
She started "real" crawling right before she turned 8 months. She army crawled for 6 weeks prior to that. This girl is CRAZY, into EVERYTHING. My other 2 kids were so calm and easy compared to Ms. Monster. Within a week of crawling she was pulling herself onto furniture and a few weeks later cruising everywhere. She stands for a few seconds but that is rare and only when she doesn't realize I let go.
She eats so much food. Skipped baby foods because she hated them. Went straight to the toddler foods and small bites of soft things. She loves her mesh bag that you put avocado/bananas/etc in.
She still only eats 4 oz bottles and still wakes up 1-2 (or more) times a night.
We rented a covered area at the lake so the kids can all swim for her birthday. I am soooooo excited to have a summer birthday kid!
