My Avi baby is 8 months old now and I can’t believe it. It feels like yesterday that I gave birth to her and laid my eyes on her for the first time. She has so much energy and always happy, it’s amazing watching her move around, learn to do new things and her interact with other babies. To think she would just eat and sleep all day to rolling around and always taking my glasses off my face is bittersweet because I miss when she was so small but I love seeing her grow everyday and do new things. Aviana loves watching Bubble Guppies and Paw Patrol every morning, grabbing everything she sees in sight ( food, remotes, phones you name it- if she sees it good luck getting back because this girl has a tight grip.) She loves nursing all time and there’s days where she wants to nurse instead of wanting baby food. Out of the amount of toys I have for her she usually plays with the same keys and stackable cups that she ends up throwing somewhere. When I take her to the park she loves seeing other babies and kids, she will be so excited and want to run and play with them ( she has to master walking first ) she’ll get there in due time. With the things she likes , what she doesn’t like is when she sees me walk out the room and I look at her, she cries. Taking something from her whether it’s a phone going towards her mouth or tearing up magazines she has a baby tantrum and putting her in the play pin-majority of the time she hates it and when I say hate it, she cries as soon as she’s sitting down she starts to cry until she’s red and tears steaming down her face. I love that Aviana always makes me laugh, she is a little comedian. Making faces or doing something cute she always puts a smile on my face. My brother used to only see her on FaceTime calls and now he sees her everyday, he loves it. Avi loves her uncle so much, every day he comes home she lights up with a smile and gets so happy. She will sit in his room with him while he’s playing video games and keep him company. There are days where she doesn’t want to be put down or even sit right next to me, she has to be held or sitting on me. I know she goes through growth spurts and has her moments where she wants to be cuddled, I don’t mind it I love holding her. She’s independent and loves to figure things out, opening something, turning on a toy or picking something up she makes a cute serious face and becomes so focused. Aviana has made me happy beyond words. I couldn’t imagine my life without her, watching her grow and develop the last 8 months have been amazing and I can’t wait to see how much more she’ll learn and what I’ll learn from her. From the moment I held her I knew I’d never love someone else as much as I love her. Every day with her is what I look forward to. From her cute laugh to her kisses, this girl fills my heart with so much love and I’m forever grateful that she chose me.
