Spring Break or Bust!

Daddy's Girl at 22 months

Kurt has been bugging me to blog, so here I am. :)  (I should be the one making him blog!)

Our little Avri has been slowing changing into a "big girl" before our eyes.  She still is the size of a 12-18 month old, but the terrible twos are creeping in.

While we were living in Utah, our pediatrician was concerned about Avri's "delayed" speech and wanted us to see an Audiologist to get her checked out.  Since we were dealing with her arthritis and possibly heart problems, I decided it wasn't a priority - after all she had been listening to two different languages since birth.

This last month or so, I feel like my "wait and see" decision was validated.  While, Avri still doesn't talk a TON, she has definitely hit that language explosion stage.

Some of her favorites words:

  • Mama/Dada
  • Mom
  • Sissy (Kelsie)
  • Lolo or Broder (Logan)
  • Melmo (Elmo)
  • Memi (Baby Emi)
  • baby
  • dink (drink)
  • Lyla (her bff)
  • Dolly
  • Barbie
  • Eat
  • Bite
  • Purple
  • Doggy
  • Jesus
  • rice
  • cheese
  • juice
  • jerky
  • pop pop (popcorn)
  • pipi (pizza)
  • milk
  • more (signs it too)
  • diaper
  • stinky
  • shhhhh (with finger)
  • nose, eye, mouth, ear
  • Minnie (mouse)
  • book
  • Hi/bye
  • Mi Moon (mr. moon)
  • Ittai ("it hurts" in Japanese)
  • Cold
If she doesn't know the words for what she wants you to do, she grabs your hands and walks you to it.  She's pretty effective at communicating what she wants.

After a Sunday night shot from her Daddy.  Hard times for them both, but the medicine seems to be working! She is starting to run after and not have very many bad days. :)

Eating her "pipi" at Round Table. :)

Emi's Baby Shower

My sweet friends Sarah & Janey threw me a baby shower with some friends from our ward, mom and Anissa also came over with her girls.  I gave lots of stuff away before we moved to Japan and also gave some things away before moving back to the States. so it was super helpful!  Kelsie was my helper during present time.  She is getting so big!  It seems like she as just born and now she's huge!

Mom's Birthday

I had my 36 week ultrasound scheduled on my Mom's birthday, so I invited her over to come to my appointment and have a little birthday fun.

After my appointment we went to lunch at the Capitola Mall and wandered around for a little bit.  The girls were excited that my mom let them ride on horse. :)

For dinner we took mom to the Santa Cruz Wharf.  It was so yummy and it was a beautiful evening.  I'm glad she was able to come over and spend some time with us!
