Our baby girl is 1. December 25th she officially turned 1 and I can’t believe how fast a year has gone by. This year has brought many smiles, love and happiness with Aviana .Going through my camera roll and looking back at the photos of Aviana it’s amazing seeing how much she’s grown and has changed since she was born. In the beginning I was up every two hours with her breastfeeding and changing diapers, running 3 hours of sleep and was recovering from birth. Now, she’s walking crawling and getting into whatever she can get to. Being parents we recall every milestone moment she’s accomplished. Avi sat up on her own at 6 months, started crawling at 9 months, got her first tooth at 9 months, stood up at 10 months and began walking shortly after turning 1. We see more of her personality everyday and this girl is funny, her little dances and facial expressions she makes, it always makes my day. She loves watching Sesame Street and every time she hears the Law and Order SVU theme song she stops what’s she doing and smiles, she’ll laugh and watch it until it’s over. There are times where I miss her being smaller and more dependent because she needed me for everything; now her independence is becoming stronger and she will want to play by herself and explore. I enjoy watching her learn new things and want to seethe world. We celebrated Avis first Thanksgiving and Christmas/birthday. Being that her birthday is at the end of the year, looking forward to the holidays were extra special. We couldn’t be more grateful and happy to have our baby girl in our lives. She makes each day brighter and better, we learn from her and love that she’s always happy. We look forward to watching her blossom and grow into a beautiful young lady.
