My Favorite Photos From Avery's 12th Month

Avery’s 12th month flew by. In the words of her GI doctor, “she is growing like a weed.” We went for her one year check-up this week at her pediatrician and she is on target with everything (expect weight, which was expected). She’s meeting all of her milestones and is perfectly healthy!

We were so busy this month traveling and going on vacation that I felt like her first birthday was here before I could even blink. With all of that traveling, comes a lot of great photos. It’s getting to be so much more fun to travel with Avery because she is so much more in tune to everything that is going on around her. I love watching her enjoy all of these new experiences.

    We had a really big snow storm hit at the beginning of the month. Avery didn't like the snow, but she sure looked liked a cute little snow baby.

    Avery's new thing this month was to just pick a spot and lay down to watch her new favorite show. I love that she's just eating a pouch and hanging out watching a movie.
  • Hello Stuffed Animals! 3 of 10
    Hello Stuffed Animals!
    Avery was supposed to be taking her afternoon nap, but instead chose to wave hi to all of the stuffed animals on the back of her door. It was possibly one of the cutest things she's ever done.

    A good morning hug between sisters never gets old.
  • Hello Miami! 5 of 10
    Hello Miami!
    Warm weather, new crocs, and taking over Miami. She loved it.
  • Look at the Water 6 of 10
    Look at the Water
    She was so in love with our balcony on the cruise. We'd both go out there every morning while my husband and Harlan slept. I'd work on my computer and she would just stare out at the water. It was so peaceful for both of us!

    This was really Avery's first experience with the pool and it took her a while to get used to it, but once she did, she loved splashing around!
  • Beach Bum 8 of 10

    She didn't like the way that the sand felt on her toes, so she cuddled with me the entire day that we were at the beach. I was in cuddle baby heaven.
  • Sisters 9 of 10
    This photo is one of my favorites of the girls. They are in the exact same position just looking out at the water just minutes after waking up.
  • More Ice Cream! 10 of 10
    More Ice Cream!
    Avery had her first taste of ice cream this month. This was the face she gave me when I told her it was all gone. Like mother, like daughter.
