Yes, it's hard to believe but yesterday marked 8 months that we have had Aria here with us. As mentioned in my previous post, she is now babbling. I really can't express how the sound of her babbling has brought so much joy into our house. It is such a happy sound and we all love hearing it!
Aria still prefers eating her 'orange' food and despite my best efforts the greens aren't going down! She has recently started eating baby rice crackers and I think that we'll probably try a few more finger foods in the next month.
If I leave the room Aria will often come looking for me. When I run her bath at night she will often crawl into the bathroom with a big smile on her face. She loves her bathtime. : ) She can also go from lying down to sitting up on her own. Truthfully, I don't remember Calla and Maya doing that at all.
Aria also loves to be part of the action. If the girls are playing something then she wants to be a part of it, especially when daddy is involved. She LOVES the monster game the best! Yesterday, I took her upstairs to nurse her and she heard Mike say something in his monster voice to the girls. She immediately sat up wide eyed and tried to throw herself out of my lap. She would have crawled straight out the door had I not taken her. As it was she was kicking her feet and waving her arms in excitement. I can't believe how much my baby wants to be kid!!
We continue to enjoy every moment that we have with our little one and are so grateful for her presence.
Love to you all,
8 Years an Angel
