I am writing your last monthly update Aria. Your last one! Wow.
I can’t put into words how excited I am to celebrate your one-year birthday this month. It feels like you’ve been apart of our family forever. You are the definition of angel on earth. I am so incredibly proud of you. I am blessed to be able to watch you learn and develop each and everyday.
Now let’s get to this final monthly update. EEEEKKKK!

You are so tall. You’re in the 97 percentile for height.
You have 8 teeth.
You walked all the way to the park this week without our help. It’s about 350 feet from our house. You pretty much walk where ever you want now and can run too.
You faint when we ask you to do something you don’t want to do. The drama!
You can say “all done” aloud and in sign language now.
You point at everything.
You run and scream “dada” every time daddy gets home. It’s the sweetest!
You love Vivian. She’s a toddler I nanny for throughout the week. Your face lights up when you see her and you copy her all the time.
You colored in a coloring book for the first time this week. You were copying me and loved it.
You can slide down the slide all by yourself. It’s insane!
You try putting your own socks and shoes on now.
It’s crazy how you pick up on everything so fast. Like you saw me blow my noise the other day and reached out for a tissue. When I gave you a tissue you blew your own nose into it and smiled. THE CUTEST! You are incredibly smart.
You are also obsessed with handing us everything you find. You will hold it up and make a little grunt until we take it. Once we take it and say “thank you” you will smile and clap.
You smile and clap every time you obey us to praise yourself.
You love helping us clean.
You love Champ. You’ll kiss him and pet him throughout the day.
You still kiss mommy and daddy every time you wake up and throughout the day. You also give us hugs now! You are just the sweetest.
I say it all the time, but it’s incredible watching your little mind work Aria.
We adore you sweet Aria. Daddy and I pray that you will follow the plans and purpose God has for your life. You have all our love Aria.
Love, Mommy and Daddy
