Lia Ahryn's 8th Month

She has grown six baby teeth, crawl on all fours and even stand whenever there's something to hold on to.

Lia just turned 8 months yesterday and in four months we will be celebrating her first birthday!

She's still super active and that's even an understatement. She loves to eat and still enjoys Celtic Woman's Hark The Herald Angels Sing, Silent Night, and Carol of the Bells. So if you are one of our neighbors, don't be surprised that we still play Christmas songs in January.

In other news, Ashrie is now in K2! So we just have this year to prepare her for big school.

We are all gearing up for a busy yet rewarding year ahead. And right now, we just take each day and all its challenges, one at a time.

That's it for now and until next post!

Different Strokes for Different Folks

Well, the same is true with parenting and with how we relate to our kids.

Although our daughters look exactly alike the minute they were born, we also noticed how different they are from the second minute and then on. We sometimes cannot help but compare them and we need to constantly remind ourselves that they are two completely different individuals with two specific  set of characters, needs, and wants.

And because of this diversity, it is a challenge for us parents to be flexible and creative in dealing with our kids. Things are different for second-time parents like us because circumstances are different. We have been maturing as parents and there are things that we do now with Lia that we wouldn't dare do as new parents for Ashrie.

I'll cite one example. During Ashrie's babyhood, feeding time was like a nurse feeding a patient on her bed. But look at Lia's feeding frenzy now!

Just imagine her having her pumpkin or better yet a gooey but yummy plum purée!
