chanaleh: Mama with Aria, age 18 months (aria-18mos)
I measured Aria at 34" earlier in June. My mom keeps reminding me that projected adult height is twice the height at 24 months; mine was 35" and I turned out almost exactly 5'10", so I'm betting she'll be right about there on both counts. So we'll see what the official doctor recording says next month.

I put up a sign at my work the middle of last week inquiring for babysitters for occasional evenings/weekends. I would have been happy with someone's teenage kid, but instead I got an inquiry from a woman in the next department over from mine, Amanda. She's maybe in her early 30s and has 2 little kids (girl aged 6 and boy 3.5), but used to be a nanny and would be happy to watch Aria for a few hours here and there, either at our house or theirs (in Crown Point less than 15 minutes away). I took her over there last Sunday afternoon for a quick meet-and-greet, and the 6-year-old took a real shine to her and showed her every toy in the house. I had to tear Aria away after 45 minutes. :-) We're planning to use this resource to go see Wonder Woman this Sunday -- the 11:45am show so we can retrieve her by naptime. A 3.5-hour outing might be ambitious for the first time out, but I feel like she'll be in good hands.

My mom is coming July 22 to spend Aria's birthday week. We don't have a super firm plan of what to do for her actual birthday (Wednesday the 26th) -- last year we just had a sandwich platter and a cake for us and the 3 grandparents in the afternoon. I think I would like to take her over to the county fair to see the animals. But I should call my dad and see what he's up for joining, too. That week's already kind of filling up; I feel like it's practically over before it's even here.
