Kash is 11 months.

One more month and Kash is a year.  They really grow in a blink of an eye.  This past month I left Ava and Kash with Grandma and Grandpa Kunz and spent a week in Hawaii.  It was my first time to leave Kash and he did Amazing. I had weaned him off the breast a couple weeks leading into it so he took a bottle like a champ.  It was a nice break of my day to day Mom duties but I sure missed my family.  I am so lucky to have them in my life.  I am so grateful that they get to call me Mommy.
  Here is the latest with Baby Kash.
* He is officially walking.  He gets so excited when he does it. He is proud and so are we!
* Kash can put his play balls in his little b-ball basket.  He is showing so much more interest in balls than Ava ever did. He loves to make baskets and play catch.  My guess he will love sports but we will see.
* Trying to talk, talks in his baby language, sometimes I think he is saying mama but he isn't consistent.
* Waves bye bye and hi to everyone.  He is becoming more sociable to strangers( smiles and waves).
                                                        * Still a great eater and sleeper!
* Loves being outside.
* He has his two bottom front teeth.

Ava is 4!!

I can hardly believe I have a 4 year old. It feels like I just had her.  She has been such a joy to our family. We love her so much. This year Ava wanted a Paw patrol birthday. So I ordered a vanilla cake at Costco and put Sky and Everest on their mobiles on the cake.  Then i made Pup-corn, Pawberries, Pawtato chips, chew toys and sticks and toilet water.  We had our close friends Piscitellos come over and Grandma and Grandpa Beaman.  Ava was in heaven and loved all her presents.  She got legos, Ken(barbie), mermaid towel, paw patrol stuffed animals and train, stickers, Peppa pig school house.

  Ava is a sweet, loving daughter and sister to Kash.  She always wants to know where her brother is and has a hard time not hugging him.  Can she love him too much? She is becoming more self sufficient. She can get some of her own snacks if she can reach it.  She loves you-tube and PBS.  She can swim without floaties.( I gave her and her neighbor, Haley, swimming lessons this summer).  She can also fill her own water up at the fridge.  She has more of an attitude and can be stubborn at times but all around she is an even tempered girl.  She is still pretty shy. She will hid behind my leg when strangers talk to her.  She takes time to open up to people but once she knows you she is a talker.
Ava's favorite food is still hot dogs.  Happy 4th birthday to my partner in crime, my little mother, and the girl who made me a MOM. I love you so much!! Never stop being you!!

* 35 lbs 4 oz (40%)
*41 1/4 inches (85%)
She is very tall and skinny.

Here are some pictures of her loving her brother, Kash.

Ava is so Beautiful!

My little man is 9 months!

Happy 9 months!! Kash is such sweet, happy, joyful and energetic boy.  He keeps me busy.  He is always on the go; either jumping in my arms or army crawling around the house. It's officially time to baby proof and lower the crib. He can almost pull himself up to standing and he can go from tummy to sitting.  He is so different from his big sister Ava. I cannot take my eyes off him because he is off exploring and putting anything and everything in his mouth. Ava was so chill and calm and would just sit and look at books for hours or just lay there. Not our Kash, he is full of energy.

Height: 27 1/2 inches (20%)
Head: 45cm (25%)
Weight: 18 lbs 12 oz (40%)
He is smaller than his sister but he is definitely more daring and mobile.

*Loves to chase, catch and throw balls ( he gets so giddy when he sees a ball)
*Loves his bath-time; he just splashes non stop!
* Smiles at everyone! He has the best smile! His whole face smiles!
*Still no teeth.
*Great Eater; eats hummus, avocado, black beans, veggie sticks, strawberries, watermelon, potatoes, cheese, yogurt (pretty much any food if small and soft enough for him to gum it)
* Can sit like a big boy in a shopping cart.
* Gives Mommy big open mouth kisses.
* Still loves to pull hair and recently discovered my arm hair; ouch!!
* Takes two naps (1 short nap in the morning and a 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon).
* Sleeps through the night 90 percent of the time.
* Can drink through a straw.
* Says Nah,nah, nah,nah....
*Knows how to scroll on my phone.
* Has learned how to make music by blowing into some toys.

Kash is getting smarter and cuter everyday.  He is the perfect addition to my beautiful family.

We had family pictures taken in July 2017
