H-O-M-E - Aria MacDonald



Aria is home and is doing really well.  A lot better than last week.

We had a really nice day at home.  PJ morning followed by a chilly trip to Target for some bits and pieces.  Aria helped me cook dinner this evening.  We made roast chicken and potatoes with asparagus and baby carrots.  She was a great helper.  It is so fun to see her sitting on our stools at the kitchen island.  When she first got home in July she didn’t have the strength to hold herself and was too scared to sit, even when someone was holding her.  Now she sits and spins around and reaches over.  It’s really cool.  She loves to cook.  She told us today she wants to be a chef or a pharmacist 🙂

    Such great news – and awesome career choices – in her own way she’d be highly qualified in both! She looks more and more like her Mum with each picture posted – beautiful:)

    Wow she is a bright cookie – a pharmacist? I can understand the chef but she is pretty clever to know about the other choice! So happy that you are home and enjoying just being a family!

    PJ mornings (days even) are great and roast chicken with everything is even better! God has certainly answered everyone’s prayers in an incredibly positive way. It’s great to see how Aria’s little body, and especially her immune system, responds to these speed wobbles. We just keep praying that she will continue to take lots more steps forward than back. God has numbered her days, and they seem to be heaps more than anyone could imagine.

    Whatever career Miss Aria chooses she will set the world on fire with her style and determination. Dinner sounds like real comfort food. Can’t go past a roast chook!! Yum. So glad you are all home and Miss Aria is spinning!!! Enjoy the aha moments you are having when you get them with your homelife and the normality. Hoping Disney trip can be back on the agenda soon.
