Some Firsts

Arista has had some firsts the past couple of weeks that I wanted to share...

(12/31/10) Arista smiled at me! No it wasn't gas, it was a real smile. She has been smiling more and more everyday.




(1/2/10) Arista had her first bath with Daddy. She was so calm the entire time, and loved every minute of it. Chewy loved watching!



(1/3/10) Arista attended her first Sacrament Meeting. She did really well, despite the cold draft coming from the vent next to us. She slept the entire time, and was held by a great friend Lisa.





(1/7/10) Arista has her first diaper rash, and we feel so sad that it hurts her!

Arista is growing like a weed, she has already outgrown a few pajamas and outfits. She is constantly reminding us of the joys of having her here. She will not be laid down, and has slept on us for many many nights. Her happiest time is in the morning right after she wakes up and eats. She will play on her jungle mat for a good 25 minutes. Chewy enjoys playing on it with her as well.

Arista loves to admire all her pretty bows while having her diaper changed, and she has even tried to pull them down a few times. She is not fond of wearing them, but we are working on that. ;)

Arista will have her very first plane ride a week from today. We are flying to Idaho to visit all her Aunts, Uncle, Great Aunts and Uncles, Great Grandparents, and Grandma and Grandpa of course. We can hardly wait!
