Ava: Three Years Old

Ava has been growing like a weed recently. It's as if she is trying to keep up with Austin. Being so close in age, this means that everywhere we go, I get asked' 'Are they twins?' Not kidding, this happens like once a day when I am out with both of them. Not only that.... but they act like twins. They are constantly doing the exact.same.thing.

However when it comes to getting in trouble and being in 'time out' they are two different birds. Austin probably sits in time out twice as much as Ava. He is much more easier to hit his sibling but time out is incredibly effective and he is done and apologizing within a few minutes. Miss Diva Ava on the other hand, when she goes in time out....expect the world to end. She screams and cries and throws a fit for what seems like forever. She never gets out before 5 minutes, sometimes not until 10 or 15! I will go over to talk to her and see if she is ready to apologize and she blatantly tells me NO! Talk about frustrating. By the third time, I go over there I am gritting my teeth thinking, CHILD!

On the other hand, Ava is incredibly sweet and loving the other 99% of the time. She gives 10 kisses before beds, multiple hugs, whispers in your ear how much she loves you, and gives many compliments regarding my jewelry, clothes, hair and more. Although, now that I say that, she did say to me as I was trying to leave her at school this morning 'I don't need any kisses'.....out pouts my fat lip! Really!? You mean you don't want to throw a fit and cry that I am leaving you!? It's been a long time since she has done that but makes you remember the days when they can't stand when you leave them.

Ava used to eat everything! She was willing to try all things. Now she's just as picky of an eater as her brother. Maybe even more so. It's a constant question from her at the dinner table, 'how many more bites Mom??'.

She is still loving all things girlie. She loves tutus, skirts, dresses, anything that she can twirl in. She still lets me pick out her clothes in the morning but when she gets to choose, it's all sorts of layers of leggings, skirts, headbands and all that jazz.

She is still obsessed with all things having to do with Elsa and Frozen. My guess is that will continue for the next few years especially as they come out with Frozen 2. I don't think that I can come up with any more 'frozen inspired' bedtime stories to fill in the next few years. There is only so much Elsa, Anna, Olaf, and Prince Hans can do!!

She also still loves all things kitty. Hence her kitty themed birthday party. Surprisingly she doesn't want a real one though. I think it helped that I did these kitty pictures because not only did they stink cause they pooped constantly, but they were skiddish, wouldn't stay put in her arms, and then ended up giving her a good scratch on the arm, so that takes care of that!

Just like her mama, she loves the sweets! Cookies, cupcakes, ice cream, popsicles, candy, chocolate!! Name it, she likes it. It serves as a good bribing tool in all situations! She's also a big fan of 'shopping' of all sorts. She finds buying clothes and shoes just as much fun as buying toys. Which also pleases Grandma and I :)

Oh I just love that picture at her birthday party! My mom and I can't stop raving about how much fun we had. Such a cute theme. can't wait to blog the details. Love you Ava Jayne (still call her Aba).
