Well we had another two firsts this week…our first haircut and our first γιορτή! I have to say I’m so proud of how well she did with the haircut. She sat in the convertible all by herself, wore a bright pink cape and for the most part let the hairdresser do her job. And for her ονομαστική εορτή she cut a cake with her γιαγιά that celebrates as well and she even had a little lick of the frosting thanks to her dad.
Everything you read will tell you something different about this stage of the game. I can tell you that we’re somewhere in the middle of it all. I still can’t believe that I have a six month old but it really hit me this part week. As my little one sat in her high chair it hit me that she’s not a newborn anymore. She is this amazing little person with her two teeth, killer smile and upbeat personality. She is banging on tables, blabbing away, pulling hair and moving in circles but hasn’t mastered the forward crawl yet. She has tasted a variety of food including: avocados, sweet potatoes, toast, Kalamata olives, and her godmothers famous pizza sauce. It truly is an adventure everyday and I’m just so blessed that she’s letting us go along for the ride!
And as we move along in our own little world today let’s take a moment to say thank you to all the men and women who fought and made the ultimate sacrifice. Whichever of my countries you live in, today is a day to be grateful and to remember those who made it possible for you to have the life you do.
