The celebration continues from the weekend until yesterday as it was Ashrie's birthday and as Lia Ahryn turned 11 months. I took the day off from work to spend the day with the family. We first surprised Ashrie and brought a birthday cake, balloons and goodie bags to her class. She said she was shocked to see the three of us in school! :)
After her class and after lunch, we went to Polliwogs in Vivo City so that the two can play. They actually didn't play together because of their age difference. Ashrie played with kids her age while Lia had the time of her life! I think we have found her happy place in that indoor playground. She crawled and climbed to her heart's content. And both went home very tired and even overslept the next day.
Speaking of Lia, she's standing more often, taking more upright steps but still prefers crawling as her "means of transportation". She has seven pearly whites now and loves to eat pasta, bread, rice, and her strawberry treats. She still hates wearing shoes. She loves climbing as seen on this post and needless to say, would not sit still. She loves her "Ate" so much. And I especially love the look in her eyes every time she sees me when I reached home.
We're just thrilled to know that she'll be one year old next month! We're so happy, indeed very thankful for the joy this little one has brought to our lives.
