I wrote awhile back about all of what Aiden has been up to lately and even though it's taken me a bit I finally have a few minutes to talk about my little lady cakes! Melina or Nina as she is more often called in this house is just growing so fast. What they say about the second growing up fast, i find true, so i treasure as much with her as a I can. She has her birthday back in December and has been growing right along. While still small, don't count her out for anything! Her big brother has defiantly prepared her for the world out there, she is one tough girl. I love how she bounces back even when she falls, or as it may be at times gets pushed over. I think of how strong of a woman she will become one day. I hope she takes these "lessons" of sorts and always stands up for herself and what she believes in, and when she falls in life will always get right back up and keep going.
She is walking, doing some talking, lots of signs, and loves to just be a part of everything around her. I treasure her giggles, her drama, and her love of books. She is much more adventuresome than Aiden was, she likes to go off to her room and play, read her books and have fun all my herself. She is full of drama, she loves to tell you what she thinks of everything, words or not so teen hood should be a trip! She wants to walk everywhere she goes, which I love to see people’s reaction so most of the time I let her.
Nina LOVES her daddy. While she said "mama" first she will always say "dada" with a huge smile on her face. She lights up to see him each morning and when he comes home in the evening. I love the way she pats his chest when he picks her up and gives her huge open mouth kisses to him often. It melts me to see their relationship grow and all that will come between them.
She also adores her big brother. They love to race the shopping cart/train push car all over the house laughing the whole way. She wants to be where he is, doing what he is doing at all times. While the fighting has started it doesn’t last long and most of the time despite my attempt to separate them they are play together again. She is doing so much new and all Aiden does is want to help her be better and learn how to walk, use a fork, say new words, and she think the attention from his is great! I pray that their relationship stay strong and she always looks up to Aiden the way she does today.
She still has issues going to people outside the selected few she deems okay to stay with. She cry/screams instantly at church which over the past few weeks has her causing total chaos in the nursery on two separate occasions. My parents tell me her scream, because its’ not really a cry is exactly what I used to do as a baby. My only response is pure apology, because at times, it’s very inconvenient and hear bleeding annoying. She knows what she wants and won’t give till she gets it. Strong willed very much like her brother!
She’s my awesome little lady and I just love her to death! Her a few pictures of her recently to wrap up!
