The 18 Month Checkup was several weeks ago. Ava maintains her hold on a the 90th percentile in length, but has dropped down to 38th percentile in weight (from her previously steady 50th percentile). She weighs in at 23 pounds, and continues to fit into 18 month clothing...though that size of pants are going to be too short before long.
Little Miss has also had her first stomach bug this fall/winter. It hit her fast on a weekend morning when I was out Christmas shopping, and she was home alone with Wynston. He did a super job of cleaning her up and making sure she got rested. When I got home, he told me "Look, we even made a fire together" and showed me the picture below...which for some reason seems so odd and funny to me.

Last bit...after waiting almost a year for a new tooth, we now have two brand spanking new eye teeth on the bottom showing their pointy thing tops. At the same time as we were being reintroduced to teething, Ava was diagnosed with her first ear infection. Between the teething and ear infection, we had one emotional little lady on our hands for a bit, but she's feeling much better now and we're glad to have our smily, giggley Little Miss back. :)
