Jon has been out of town this week so I’ve taking care of Ava all week.  Single parents have it rough!  I went into the bathroom for a few minutes and when I came out Ava was gone.  Then I heard banging on the second floor.  She can crawl up a full flight of stairs!  I can’t stop thinking about what would have happened if she had fallen at the top.  There’s a baby gate at the bottom of the stairs now.  The bars double as a track for her car.




Ava had her one year wellness checkup yesterday.  She completely charmed the doctor.  The doctor kept remarking on how expressive she is. / Ava weighs 21.5 lbs at 50% and 31 inches at 87%.  My tall skinny girl.


While Jon was away I weaned Ava.  She cried the first two nights, but last night she only woke up once and there were no tears.  These stages are so bittersweet for me.  I don’t want her nursing all night and I can’t wait to get sleep in more than two hour chunks again.  But I miss my little baby.

  1. Wow, climbing all the way up the stairs. I am impressed. Tall, cute, and athletic. And loves books. Terrific.

    She’s going to be such a reader. Just like her parents. :-)
