Baby Update: 13 Months

Somewhere between February and the end of March, I mysteriously found myself on the other side of Arya’s first birthday — so today I’m sharing her 13 month baby update! We officially have what I’m calling a “baby toddler” and Arya is officially a real live personality. I feel like every day we get a sneak peek into who she’s becoming! But then I also feel like I’m constantly starting over with this whole “momming” thing. In short, it’s just hard — working full-time, parenting full-time, trying to squeeze time in for business projects, connecting with family and friends. There’s NEVER enough time in the day, and at the end of each, I’m always left wishing I had more of it. And have I mentioned how much more energy is required, now that Arya is mobile!?! From what I’ve heard though, the next 18 years are going to be a constant learning of balance and using the time you do have for the things that are the most important. This past weekend we took a family  “walk/run” on what we’re hoping is the last cold day of the year and looking back at the photos stirs all kinds of mom emotions. We’ve all changed so quickly in the short month after she turned one, and she’s learned a few new things along the way:

  • Arya is a full on walker, and LOVES her independence (as evidenced by the snapshots below)
  • Favorite things to say are Mama, Dada, Bye bye, Uh-oooooh (not to be confused with uh-oh), WOW and Ahhh-ya (aka Arya lol)
  • We overcame her first real sickness that involved more than a few sleepless nights,  some eventual antibiotics and a round of nebulizer treatments
  • When it comes to nursery school, Arya couldn’t be happier and is thriving in her environment where she paints and plays soccer and sings
  • Turns out she also has picked up a few of my personality traits: curious, adventurous and very opinionated
  • Smiling is most definitely her favorite, and it’s hard to find a time when she’s not happy
  • Favorite foods include quesadillas, chicken, cheerios, sun butter, cheese, strawberries, french fries, oranges, and pasta
  • Least favorite foods include anything not listed above. We’re working on expanding her palette lol
  • Still going strong with only two teef, but Arya loved her first visit with the dentist

It’s like we’re all venturing into a new territory together — her running full speed and us just trying to keep up!
