You are 5 months old in these photos.
Your extreme love and fascination with doggies began here. Dogs are the perfect best friend and companion for a child to grow up with. They are powerful conduits of loyalty, compassion, and selfless love. The sound of your squeals of delight and joy whenever you play with them is one your daddy and I always cherish. I look forward to seeing you grow with them while even getting into all sorts of mischief. I’ve noticed children who grow up with dogs as being part of a family are known to be one of the most emotionally intelligent & compassionate human beings. Your Akki is a beautiful example of that, and I had hoped you would get those same traits. You undoubtedly have!
You were just so fascinated by the pups
We celebrated daddy’s first father’s day. You’re so lucky to have such an amazing daddy who loves you with all his heart. A father’s job isn’t to teach his daughter how to be a lady, it is to teach her how a lady should be treated. Your daddy has always treated me like a queen, and likewise he has treated you like his princess. He is the most loving, devoted man I’ve ever met and it’s because of him we have our dreams come true.
You were so sassy & full of personality! You were also SO obsessed with trying to stand at this age. You would pull up against the bedrail and use that to stand, you would pull up against me or your daddy to try to stand. You couldn’t sit up on your own yet, and you were just obsessed with being on the move!
For the record, you didn’t get your first tooth until a few months later!
Someone shared a video on how babies sleep using a cloth to lull them to sleep. It had the opposite effect on you.
You are the perfect Bambo Nature ambassador!
You’re our happy sparkly little baby!
Enjoying bath time as usual!
Of course, I’m your footrest
Beckoning me with your foot, as if you’re saying “Come hither, my footrest!”
and typical sweaty head when you wake up from your nap
Getting some wise advice from Tenley, your 2 year old pal
I adored dressing you up in beautiful dresses sent by Macy’s & one of our favorite dress brands: Kids Dream! You were so easy-going and loved looking at yourself in the mirror admiring your pretty dresses.

With your Akki
You were just obsessed with the pups
All set to go!
Wait, I need a snack
Napping like an angel in your little potato sack. You always wake up so cutely and sweetly.
And you sleep so squishy too. I miss this squishy face
Our regular routine of me walking you to the grocery store and you’d just fall asleep half way. What a simple, easy life.
We celebrated your first 4th of July and took a nice stroll along the Venice Canals. You were enamored by the ducks.
I usually hold you and daddy holds me. But sometimes I like to turn around to hold daddy, and you IMMEDIATELY turn around in your sleep to hold me. You are just too cute.
No matter how big you get, you’ll always be the right size for us to hold you in our arms.
We’re growing together. We are seeing the world like it’s new. I will open my heart and love will rain down all over you. You’ll giggle, and I’ll do it all over again. And we will walk hand in hand, always and forever. Your daddy & I made you, but you made us parents.
Love you forever & ever,
Mommy & Daddy
