Oriana – 17 Months

Our little sunshine baby has finally started feeding herself. Oriana took her sweet time to start doing so, but she’s got it down. She is walking all over the house. She has always had really good balance and that helped her out a lot. She walks around the house and talks (and eats, if she’s having a snack) all day. She is also finally off formula completely. She’s going through a bit of a Violet phase in that we sometimes have to bribe her with puffs to get her to eat her actual food. She loves stuffed animals; she hugs and cuddles them and it is the cutest thing I have ever seen. She always takes one to bed with her. Oriana has started to figure out that cuddling is not so bad. She likes to sit and rock and lay her head on our shoulders. There’s nothing better than baby cuddles. Oriana babbles all the time. She’s not doing a lot of real words yet, but I’m sure it will be soon. She does lots of dada and some mama, nana, and baba. She really sounds like she’s trying to say something sometimes. I have no idea what that something is , but it definitely sounds serious. She still thinks that music and dancing are pretty great. She has also been very into reading lately. She will bring me a book and demand that I read it to her multiple times. All in all, Oriana’s doing great and she’s right on track developmentally for her corrected age. She’s such a sweet girl.
