more Mia

That is 5:53 am folks.......yep, daddy has Mia out the door @ 6am for daycare. But I will tell you she is pretty good at waking in the morning. Yesterday she was awake, all smiles and got right up (damn, wish I could be that happy in the mornings) I get her up at 5:25-5:30am and usually no fussing. She goes to sleep at 7:00 - 7:30 pm during the week nights.
In her Garanimals.............all these little outfits are so darn cute and thankfully very inexpensive (especially since she totally trashes her clothes in daycare with food and paints)
Now as I recall Garanimals worked by matching the animal on the tags...........well this outfit is 2 different animals but I think it matches perfectly......what's up with that?

evening jams

This is what Mia likes to do every evening, listen to music videos and jam-out. Unfortunately getting camera or video shots of her are becoming more difficult as she knows exactly what I'm doing and stops what she is doing. I need to find an angle so that she can't see me :)

Morning 'Nanner

How cute are these little flip flops!!! Here's our girl having her morning banana, nothing else will do for her unless she has the 'nanner first.

OH, and I promise I have ordered a calibration kit for my monitor......hopefully my pics will be better soon! I should have done that years ago, my bad.

Meeting new friends

A few months before we received our referral my husband ran into a couple( at our local Lowe's-his hang out) that had adopted recently from China. Gordon was in total awwww over their little girl Dakota, so much that he even took a video of her to show me when he got home that evening. They had exchanged phone numbers with Gordon and had planned on getting together with them once we returned home from China with our Mia.
Fast forward.... Saturday afternoon, the girls got to meet for the very first time (and I got to meet this family also for the first time). It so nice to know someone that has been thru the same process and totally understands.
Dakota brought over a gift for Mia and of course Mia wouldn't share but eventually they decided they liked each other and started playing and running around the house. It was so cute to see how happy these 2 little girls were and I am so happy to have met this family. We hope to get these girls together more often.
It took about an hour before Mia warmed up to Dakota.

But then it was game on! these two girls were running around the house after each other-so cute.
Dakota is so sweet, cute and petite. I had to make sure Mia didn't get too pushy around her, Mia is like a bull in a china shop.....seriously! She is the year of the Ox!
It's interesting to see Mia just watch Dakota and study her for at least an hour before she warmed up to the fact that she had a new friend to play with. Cute was the moment Dakota sat in my lap, little Miss Mia came right over and squeezed her behind right into my lap, moving Dakota out as to say...hey my mommy.....cute!

At Nana's

I can finally hold a crayon
Hey, that's me in the picture!

I crack myself up!

Chocolate covered Bananas

ummmmm, what is this?
me likey....
Heading for the fountain....
think I will rinse off here.....

Mia loves loves bananas and has a "nanner" every morning. This evening we gave her a small frozen chocolate covered banana and well, you can see how she enjoyed it.


While cruising my "daily blogs" I saw that Chloe had her toenails painted and it was so very cute, I thought I might try to paint Mia's toes someday. Well that was Saturday or Sunday I saw that post and you won't believe this but DADDY decided to paint Mia's toenails Sunday afternoon....seriously, I can't make this stuff up people. I never even mentioned it to daddy and he somehow thought of it on his own & he proceeded to tell me he could do mine for me too but I graciously(laughed it off) passed on that offer. Mia likes her painted toes and lifts her foot up to look at her toenails and to show you how pretty they are (way too cute to see her do this). Awww my little girly girl.

Catching up on a few days

This week Mia has been going to (KUW) Kids under the Weather (at the hospital Gordon works at).
Here is how our week has gone....
Monday & Tuesday=Daycare

Tuesday night Mia started sounding stuffed up and woke with a mild temp. We kept her home from daycare and sent her into KUW, while there the nurses said when Mia was sleeping she had a cough that sounded like Croup & we should just keep the Tylenol going to keep her temps down.

Wednesday night I heard what sounded like a rooster with something stuck in their throat crowing from the upstairs bedroom....Mia was sitting up in her crib crying and crowing. Her fever was up and once again we gave Tylenol and she went back to sleep.

Thursday morning it was off to KUW again but midday Mia's temp spiked up to 105.3 and she wasn't sounding any better so off to the ER we went. (I of course left work immediately...partner understood still not quite sure my Battalion Chief did but he said ok.... (me) ummm yea I'm leaving) You all know I'm a Paramedic BUT when it's my child everything is waaaaaaaaaay different, your child I can be comfortable with treating---- MY child NOT SO MUCH.

Diagnosis: Tonsillitis with mild Croup
Treatment: Antibiotics and steroids.

Today, Mia woke with no temp :) and Gordon just called, he is up at KUW having lunch with Mia who just happens to be running around the place like she is on crack. Guess she is feeling better :)

Even with a temp of 105.3 yesterday this child of ours is still a happy girl...maybe a little grumpy but I would be at the least grumpy.

Here are a few photos to catch you up on our Mia.

Sitting on daddy's lap last night, Temp 105.3 and still happy
