This is basically the first half of May - I will call the pre-Hawaii part of May.
Reed was able to track some of Aria's climbing moves when he was doing a what-seems-like-routine photo shoot. I guess I still feel like Aria is super young because she is still such a skinny little thing. But, she is definitely growing up and hitting all the gross motor and fine motor skills milestones - despite being in the 5% for weight. She eats like no body's business on most days and I think she might actually have a hollow leg when she hides all her food. Here is Aria showing us her skills on pulling herself up (photos courtesy of Reed - May 7, 2012):
|Hey, what's on top of that stool?|
|Yep, that wasn't too bad at all.|
|Look at me! I am so big!|
|I love these stools.|
May 8, 2012 was a fun day for us for a couple of reasons: we got to go to the park at Mountain's Edge and I got to see some of my very favorite people in the world - Pat and Jen plus their 2 adorable children! Besides a brief sighting at Cafe Rio on our way back from graduation, I had not seen them since Reed was 6 months old - too long for my taste. It was awesome to be able to catch up with them, play a little bit, and catch up some more. They are still some of my favorite people - it's one of those friendship's that lasts forever - even if you go for a long time not talking. I love it!
Oh yeah, Reed and Eve had a great time as well. I think the favorite thing was the teeter totter - always a good time.
