Ava Alexis Elliott You Are Three!

Weight-26.6 9th percentile
Height-36 inches 20th percentile
BMI-9th percentile

Eat-A, you are definitely my best eater!  You will try anything and you definitely eat way more than the boys even though you are so tiny! Your daddy makes you a smoothie every morning!  He adds all kinds of crazy things to it!  Spinach, Kale, Peanut Butter, and lots of fruit!  Sometime you also have eggs or cereal too!  You love bacon for breakfast!  You like steel cut oats too! For lunch you usually get a fruit, veggie, grain and protein.  You love chicken, veggie chips, hummus, apples, grapes, strawberries, and blueberries!  Your dinner is a lot like your lunch.  You are still allergic to milk so you drink almond milk and love it!  When Gigi babysits she lets you all drink milk out of a bottle!  That is your special treat!  Your milk allergy seems to be getting better.  You eat cheese now and don't seem to have any problems!  You still throw up all of the time but not nearly as much as when you were drinking milk!  Now you just get sick if you have a cough or eat too much sugar! 

Sleep- Oh A!  You have really messed up our sleeping arrangements around here.  A few weeks ago you started sleeping on the floor in the boys room between their beds in a sleeping bag.  You went crazy if I tried to put you in your bed.  You actually do pretty well sleeping there.  You don't get out of your sleeping bag and you go right to sleep!  We eventually moved your crib mattress to the floor so you could sleep on that.  At night time you all do great but naps have gotten a little wild.  You all seem to play more than you sleep and Knox likes to climb out of his bed and snuggle with you on the floor.  Sometimes you and Knox decide you don't want to stay in your bed and you run around upstairs!  I guess it's time for big kid beds!!!

Tricks-You know your colors (Especially pink) and most of your shapes.  You can draw a circle.  We are working on your name! ha You have started riding your brothers balance bike and you have gotten pretty good at it!  You talk a lot but sometimes I know what you are saying but other people have a harder time understanding you!  You're a smart little girl and we love you A!

Bath-You all don't love bath time as much as you use to because you know that means bed time is next!  Sometimes it takes me a little while to get you all in the tub!  You like to hide in your tee pee or run away from me!  You all still take baths together! You love to splash and "Swim."  You get to use special shampoo since you have long girl hair!  You even get to use conditioner! You love spraying your leave in conditioner in your hair and brushing it!  

Clothes-A, you have gotten so particular about what you wear!  It drives me crazy!  You still like to wear jackets and boots in the house.  You prefer jackets with a hood and pockets...  Sometimes you like to wear hats and sunglasses too!  You love anything pink and you like to wear pink socks every day!  You also like dresses that are sparkly or pink and you call them your "Princess dresses".  Your favorite shoes seem to be boots.  You love wearing your rain boots and your black and tan booties!  I think you like them because you can slip them on and off so easily!  The past few days you have wanted to wear athletic shorts every day even though its a little cold.  You haven't worn many bows lately.  You like headbands better but some days you will only wear a hat.  Usually the green John Deere hat.  You are still such a tiny little thing!  You wear a 2t in shirts and dresses and in jeans and pants you wear anywhere from a 18 month to 2t.  You even have a few pairs of 12 month shorts that still fit!  In shoes you wear a 8.5 or 9.      

Looks-A, I still don't know who you look like! You have blue eyes like your daddy and dark skin like your mommy!  You are built just like your dad too.  Your hair is light brown sometimes blond.  I guess you are just a little mixture!  You are such a pretty girl! 

Teeth-You have all of your teeth (that you are supposed to have at this age)!  Your teeth have gotten so much straighter since you stopped using your pacifier!  I was scared your front teeth were going to turn grey/black since you fell and busted them last year but so far so good!  They are still very white! You love to brush your teeth with your hello kitty electric toothbrush!  

Ava, our sweet, sassy little girl!  You are definitely one of a kind!  You seriously could not get any more girly!  Your favorite color is pink and I think you legitimately think you are a princess.  Any time I call you a "Big Girl" you say "No, I'm a princess!" ha You are our little princess though!  You are such a little mommy too! You love to take care of everyone!  You take care of your brothers all of the time!  You have the funniest little personality!  It's like you are a 20 year old stuck in a three year olds body!  You talk with your hands and you are so dramatic.  SOOOO dramatic!  It's almost too much for your daddy to handle!  You love your daddy though!  You think he can fix anything.  It's actually pretty cute!  You always say, "Daddy fick it".  It doesn't matter what it is! One time my hair extension fell out and you said he would take care of it for me! ha You are still obsessed with Gigi too!  You love spending the night at her house.  Probably because she lets you get away with murder!  You can be quite the little mess!  You blame everything on Knox and if that doesn't work you blame it on Brooks.  If that doesn't work you usually cry and say you are sick or someone hurt you.  Like I said, you are very dramatic.  You can be pretty sneaky too!  You get your brothers into a lot of trouble.  Knox is still your little side kick.  In fact, as I was typing this I just went up stairs to check on you (You are supposed to be napping) and I found you and Knox in my room and you had gotten into my makeup and you both have black mascara all over your faces.  I didn't even say anything to you and you just started crying.  Crying is the strategy you use to get out of trouble.  Brooks and you don't fight as much as you use too.  You can both be very silly together!  Your best friends at school are Mia and Hudson.  You talk about them a lot!  I think you play with your brothers a lot too.  You can definitely get rough with the boys!  I think you will be able to hold your own one day!  You love art projects!  You love to write too!  One of your favorite games is to play waitress and take everyones order.  You like to play with your dolls and makeup too! You feed your dolls and brush their hair!  Your favorite tv shows are Sophia, Mickey Mouse, and Fresh Beat Band.  Your favorite movies are Frozen, Little Mermaid, and Sandlot.  We love you so much Ava!  You make us laugh every single day!  We love our little princess!
