Faster than daddy

Apparently someone is much faster than daddy when it comes to a diaper change. Daddy forgot to close the powder but Mia got it before he noticed. We are at our friend's house for dinner-wonderful dinner and this was a huge laugh for all of us :)

The first glimpse of our Mia

I have uploaded the video of our very first glimpse of Mia walking into the room at the Civil Affairs office to meet us (Got'cha).
WARNING......Tissue alert. We still have ooodles more of videos from China and I am slowly going thru all of them. Everything is now burned onto discs AND on an external hard drive so there will be no more chances of loosing them. I am so very thankful that we were smart enough to bring the external hard drive with us to China and backed up all of our files while we were there. Who knew the computer would crash (it's brand new!)

**For those getting ready to travel, my advise.....spend $100 and bring along a portable external hard drive.

Best idea ever

Thank you to Johnna for sending this gift home with Gordon!!! This is one of the best ideas ever for use when feeding your toddler. It's a bib/towel/top...YAY (don't you love the giraffe on it too) I would highly recommend this to all of my mommy friends.

I think this is what (well kinda what) I was seeing on Mia in her pictures from the SWI.

Learning new things

Learning to use her new big girl cup with a straw :)

Dr.s visit

She gained 1.0 lb in the past month.
We go back next week for bloodwork and shots if needed (they didn't do any of that on the 1st visit)

Kerri's Birthday

Friday Mia and I visited the station to celebrate Kerri's Birthday (my work partner-actually I call her my life partner since I see her more hours a day than my husband). I have a few more pics of Kerri and Mia cutting the cake BUT my laptop crashed and I have been working on restoring my files and haven't got a chance to finish more pics.

Turning 2

I know, it's still a few months away but I am thinking of having a (small) themed Birthday party for Mia, she was born on Halloween. Time is going by so fast now that we are home, October will be here in no time. Nothing scary, just fun an colorful.....have any ideas you would like to share with me? As she gets older this will be much easier to plan for but at 2 what do you do?

Daddy is home

She was waiting for him by the door today when I told her Daddy is home.

And now it's June

No day would be complete without a few Mia pics :) (OK my day wouldn't be complete) I go back to work at the end of the month so I'm not sure just how many daily photos we will get.
She decided on a hat, not me.
