Precious Baby Girl: Xia at 16 months

Xia. She has been an absolute joy to us! Why I’ve been so blessed with such good babies I’ll never know. She is such a smiley, happy little thing. She especially adores her brother and sister, and they love her to death as well. It is so sweet to peek into a bedroom to find all three of them playing in a tent of blankets, or Jada reading a book to them or something. What joy that brings my heart.

She’s pulling up now, and cruising along the furniture, but she still isn’t walking. I was pretty concerned for a while, but now I think she’s just taking her time. She walks fine when I hold her hands, but she gets scared when I let go, so she plops herself to the floor. I do hope she gets it soon though.

She’s eating SO good. I nursed her almost exclusively for her first 12 months (other than a bite of this or that here and there). She would not eat baby cereal, or baby food for that matter. She wanted what we were eating. So she went straight to table food. And she refuses to eat anything I offer her on a spoon, though if I give her the spoon she’ll happily feed herself, which is fine with me! Such an easy child!

She really has no interest for any of her toys. She prefers to get into my cabinets and play with tupperware and cups. I love that she plays so creatively… if only I could teach her to pick everything up when she’s done! She loves music too. It’s so precious to see her laughing and clapping her hands.

Oh, if only words could describe how I adore this child. How I adore all of my precious children. I am so incredibly thankful that I am able to be with them every moment of every day. To not miss a thing they do, or say, or learn for the first time. What a joy this motherhood is.

  2. What a doll!!! I think its great how I can see both of your other kids in her face. =) I too was blessed with good babies. Thanks for sharing!

  3. She is just adorable! What a blessing. You were fortunate she went straight to table food. I made baby food for my last 2 and it was so time-consuming.
