Just a brief rundown on Aria’s vocabulary thus far (for those interested).

Uh-Oh
I Don’t Know
Turtle
Dog

Banana (or na-na!!! in a throaty-growly voice)
Cheese

Hat
Door
Shut
O (as in the cereal)
Mama
Dada
Grandma

Our girl also makes various animal noises, such as roaring like a lion and mooing like a cow, and can point to and identify lots of body parts (eye, ear, nose, mouth, belly button, toes, feet). Most of all, though, she loves to sing and dance, stopping whatever she is doing when a favorite song (she does have discriminating taste, even at 15 months, and seems to prefer songs with distinctive notes and rhythms) comes on to bounce and move and sing along.

I'm a stay-at-home homebirthing, VBACing, breastfeeding mama, advocate and sometimes artist, sometimes web designer. We are located on the East Coast (but long for the West Coast) where we try to live simply, playing with natural toys, eating organic, vegetarian foods and using our imaginations and creativity as much as possible. I knit and I'm in the process of learning to sew so I can make (or at least attempt to make) many of the items we need and use and want to surround us.

  1. How sweet is that?! She is growing up so fast!!! We are going to have to have a visit somehow and get Kiki on that list. :)I can’t wait to see her dance and hear her say “nana” in the growly voice!
