Well, okay, maybe not a full on walker yet, but some steps were definitely made. This girl is ready to move and she’s been making strides. Thankfully, we were able to capture some of those first steps as well. As a mom, watching our kids grow is something I’m SO blessed to witness as I’m beyond thankful for healthy, happy, growing kids. The thing is? It’s also bittersweet. While I know I can’t keep them little forever, I can empower them to be the best versions of themselves. While I know I can’t capture every milestone (especially with four, sometimes your head is just turned the wrong way), I’m ready to celebrate the ones I can. While I can’t always be every place at once and definitely have my hands full, I can find ways to show more love… and to teach them to do the same. There are going to be so many more first steps along the way, and while I’m a little sad these are my last “baby’s first steps,” I’m so joyful at the beautiful little one she is, and so excited to rejoice in these milestones with her.

So, back to these walking first steps… we’ve been working with Aria (she just turned 11 months a couple of days ago) on taking steps on her own, and so far she is GREAT at walking while holding on. Little sis took a few steps on her own… and we caught it on camera! Check it out below from our Instagram stories. 🙂

​Our little Aria has also been growing a healthy appetite as well. While I feel like she’s SO far away from weaning and shows no signs of wanting to stop nursing, she’s also been a great eater and demonstrating many signs of independence in eating. I am happy to empower her to feed herself and help her develop motor skills necessary for independent feeding. She absolutely loves to squeeze feed herself and finding items that are organic and easy to throw in my bag when we’re on the go is a definite plus and a reason to add to my shopping list.

Recently we’ve been loving the new Go & Grow by Similac Pouches, and they’ve been in a constant rotation with our busy family-of-6 schedule. The Pouches are Certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO, contain no fillers, artificial flavors or colors and are gluten free, plus they’re the only toddler fruit and veggie puree pouches with OptiGRO, a brain- and eye-nourishing blend of DHA, Lutein, and Vitamin E. So, even when we’re on the go, it’s a way for me to squeeze a little more fruits and veggies and continue to introduce nutritious foods in my babe’s day. With her eating more and more each day (and yep, still nursing too!), I can just grab these pouches when we’re making a run to Walmart, but what I really appreciate is the ability to order online from Walmart.com and have it shipped right to our door so we are never out, even when we’re running out the door. 😉
