Avonlea Rose Ludy
Avonlea (a.k.a “Avy-Rosie”) was our fun surprise from God. Right when we brought Kipling home from the hospital as a newborn, we learned we were pregnant with baby number 4. So now our youngest two are only 7 months apart! Avy is a spunky, chunky little monkey. She refuses to be ignored. She is always giggling uproariously or chuckling mischievously, always trying out some new daring feat. She has no fear of anything and I honestly think she believes herself to be about eight or nine years old. When she could barely walk she thought she could walk down the stairs like any big person, and took many tumbles as a result. She will climb up anything, no matter how high, and plunge off of it. She will run and jump into the big pool without a second thought. She will enthusiastically go down water slides meant for much bigger kids. She hangs on the monkey bars 10 feet in the air, her legs dangling and doesn’t want anyone to catch her when she lets go (we do anyway!) She loves life, loves adventure, loves to laugh, and can certainly hold her own among the rest of the Ludy gang.
