All About Diya :)

Diya is growing up and getting big!! She loves to play! She loves dolls and talks to them and pokes at their eyes. She has this toy (shown above and below) that she used to lay under and look at or play with the toys. Now she likes to sit up and play with them :) Sometimes she'll grab onto one of the toys and lift her whole body up and slide under it - it's hilarious! I've yet to be able to get it on tape :)
Diya really likes to headbutt things! It's hilarious :) If we're sitting near her she will headbutt us. If there's something she likes, she'll headbutt it. She's hilarious. Anyway, here's a quick video of her playing with her toy and headbutting the toys :)

The other day Aashini had some little stickers... :)
Diya is a SUPER eater!!! She is always hungry and always wants to eat. We make our baby food here (because it's pretty easy to do, it's yummy and because I don't want to pay $5-8 a jar!) so after I make the food, I freeze it in ice cube trays. When Aashini was this age, she ate about 3 cubes per meal (about 3 a day)... Diya eats 6 and is still hungry afterwards! She loves food! Here's a picture of Diya with one of those mesh feeders with banana in it ;)
Diya is a lot of fun :) She's been saying "dada" a lot and she even says "Diya" at least once a day. I don't know if I can count those as first words yet but it's fun :)

Diya waves now too :) I haven't been able to get it on video just right yet, so I'll have to post a video of that later, but she'll wave both arms at the same time a lot too and she looks like she's flapping her wings - we call her "little butterfly" a lot :)
She LOVES bending her wrists. She does this funny thing.... she'll wave with the back of her hand over her mouth - it's funny - I can't explain it, so you can see it on video :)
That's some fun stuff about Diya right now :)

Aw that was a cute post!! Sweet little happy Diya! Hazel loved the videos - she started mimicking the wave in the last video and is STILL doing it as I type. :)

The headbutting thing is too cute! Anthony and I both laughed out loud when we saw the stickers. Ah, life with two little ones!

Do you like the mesh food thingy? The idea of it sounds sooo gross to me, but I've been waiting to meet someone to ask if they work. Isaiah loves to eat too and it seems like he might like it. How messy are they?

The mesh food thing is super messy but it's fun :) Sometimes Diya just wants to play with it with her hands though - that can get nasty. It's great though when she's hungry and I have to defrost the baby food, or make some... I can just stick something in there and let her chew away :)
