Recent pics of my not-so-little-anymore girl

Somehow Ava's almost 13 months old. She's 31 inches long and 23 1/2 pounds and has taken her first steps only to decide she prefers crawling right now. She's much more interested in talking than she is in walking as well. :shock: I thought I'd share some recent pictures.

On her birthday. Don't let her fool you; she's not posing, she's trying to take her sock off. ;)

Num num as she says.

    Great pics ---- she looks just like you (with blue eyes).

    Glad all is well.

    Thank you all! <3

    I can't believe she's over a year old either. And I see little to no resemblance between us, but that's my favorite compliment ever, haha! You're all too kind. :)

    Hey, girl, if you don't mind me asking...how are things going w/ you & Ava's dad?

    Oh, goodness, you look a lot alike! You have such similar face shapes! :) You just have different eyes and hair color, but I think the rest of her little face is the spitting image of you.

    Oh, you look a lot alike. The whole lower half of your faces is very similar. Maybe the eyes too...but the color throws you because she's so stunningly opposite to you in eye coloring. Parents often can't see this though...I know I don't usually see myself in my own kids, but I'm told I'm there.

    She's a doll.

    Yep, she looks like you.

    My husband says that he doesn't see himself in Lilly, but she looks exactly like him. She is a good combination of both of us, but I see so many similarities in them.

    I guess I can see it a bit. It does seem to be true that most parents don't see themselves in their children, and the eye color and hair color probably plays a part there for sure. My Mom loves to joke that she has 3 brown eyed kids and 3 blue eyed grandkids. Genetics are fascinating.

    Either way, thanks :) I'd love to think I look anything at all like her. She's definitely just like me as far as her personality goes - she's a very high strung little thing. And I can't get too mad cause I sure know where she gets it! Haha. :toothy7:

    I think she looks very much like your adorable brother. Not that I don't think YOU are adorable (you so are!), but you know I have a thing for your brother. : )

    LOL!

    He's single now, ya know... just sayin'

    He's a pretty good catch... and probably right up your alley. He's in a band, has tattoos and piercings, is not really a "traditional" person in any sense of the word, and is a total sweetheart.

    Downsides (potentially) is that he is short (shorter than me, about 5'4-5'5 and he's only 38. But those things may be fine for you. ;)

    ETA: While he IS in a band, that's not his career. He does that on the weekends for fun and extra money, but he works a "real" job during the week. :P

    He's my perfect man!! I love short (my 2nd hubs was short, Mr. Harley is short) unconventional (well I'm certainly in that boat) drummers (I've dated lots of drummers for some reason) with long hair (love) and tattoos (love). I'm not even kidding. It's a good thing he's so far away. I might have to stalk him. : )
    Unfortunately the 38 probably makes me a less than perfect woman. Darn. : )

    Well, anyway, what were we talking about? Oh yea, that adorable kid of yours. : )
