So, what's new with Adia? Well, she is eating lots of solids these days. She has loved everything she's tried so far with the exception of peaches and mangos. I love both, but I tasted the baby food and it does leave a strange after taste in your mouth. We just recently bought some Baby Mum Mums. Check them out at www.mummums.com. They carry them at Babies R Us, which is where we got them. She tried them and loved them. She can sit and hold them by herself and they dissolve in her mouth as she chews on them. It's easy for me, it helps with her teething, and it gives her some of the nutrition she needs.
Adia can sit up on her own now with no assistance at all. She loves to sit up. It's incredibly cute. We still put a couple of pillows behind her in case she falls, but she rarely does fall any more. She often does this little dancing thing while she sits. It's the cutest thing in the world.
Adia's hair gets lighter and ligther every day. Her roots are blonde. She still has mostly a reddish blonde head of hair, but what's growing in is lighter, so I think all of her hair will be either just blonde, or a light strawberry blonde, which I love. She had her first little hair trim the other day. We trimmed a few crazy hairs that were sticking out.
We are still usually giving her 1 bottle of formula each day. Some days, I just nurse and do solids with her, but she usually isn't completely satisfied and wants a bottle after the afternoon or evening feed.
With the exception of maybe 1 night per month, Adia sleeps about 11-12 hours at night. She usually goes to bed smiling after a bath, a story, and a song. We enjoy our little night time routine. :) She usually goes to bed some time between 7:45 and 8:30. We will probably have to move that up a little bit when the school year starts again since she will have to wake up a bit earlier.
We went to an amazing B&B this past weekend with Micah's family for his grandparents' 60th wedding anniversary. Adia got so much love and attention. After being at the sitter's today for a few hours, the sitter could tell that Adia had been held all weekend, since Adia wanted to be held while at the sitter's. Someone got a little spoiled! She is pretty irresistable. :)

Again, please continue to pray for Micah's brother, his wife, and their little Evangeline. They are a precious family and we love all of them.
