Aria 8.4 months!


She's still growing but, slowly! I have to laugh at everyone who measures their baby's health by the dang percentile system. I get it already, my baby is small for her age! Who cares? She's just perfect and the way God made her to be. SO, all you new moms and moms to be- Relax, your kid will grow at his or her own rate and own time! Don't over analyze your instinctual maternal feelings about your baby!  And don't compare your kid to all the other babies and charts out there. Back in the good ole' days moms didn't sit around asking "what percentile is your baby in?" 
Well, my Aria is in the 100 percentile! Yep, she's 100 percent HER!
Here's her in her bouncy swing . Thanks Mom and Carl for getting her this last Christmas! She goes Nuts in it and, i love that i can just hang it in the door wherever i go! I love it that she's finally crawling and getting around and she is just blossoming
into this little person. She SINGS all the time when she plays and such and I now know WhY we named her what we did! I'm not just saying that either, ask anyone- she squeals and hums and sings all the time. It's a hoot!
Other than that, she's your normal baby with about 4 top teeth coming in and when she's not teething she's loads of giggles and cuddles. Brielle wasn't such a cuddle bug until she was about 1 year old. I wonder if that has to do with nursing or not. Either way, they are both cuddly and getting a long great, with the occasional mood swing. 
I'll post next all about Brielle! ~C

I think she looks just PERFECT! Screw percentiles! My kids are always on the big side but even out later. I get all kinds of comments about how big they are at such a young age. Come on people, every kids is different. I can't get over how much your girls look alike. HEHE. I think Brielle was totally meant to be with you guys! I will call you tomorrow. We've had dr. apps. & tball games and school all mixed in with the usual life stuff. See you soon!

I really don't think the cuddeling thing has anything to do with nursing. Colby is a huge cuddle boy and Lynnie never was and I didn't breastfeed either! She is a cutie.

PS I agree about percentiles, my doctor doesn't even give them! YEAH

Aria is 100 percent beautiful Corrine. It was so great to see you yesterday. I hope Brielle is having a better day. Too many bumps and bruises for sure yesterday. She is such a beautiful and grown up girl. Where has the time gone??
