Our little girl is 2!

Here are just a few pics from Mia's Birthday party yesterday.  I still have 700+ more pictures to go thru soooooo it might be a few more days til I post some more.

She had a great day and we got to spend it with some great friends, thanks to everyone for their wonderful gifts.....Mia doesn't know which present she likes best.....right now they are all "mine" she says.

Our first pumpkin

Daddy & Mia carved their first pumpkin together today, OK daddy did the work and Mia ran around him in circles.  It turned out pretty cool.
Excuse the color.....too much sunlight.

Mama doesn't do such a good job re-dressing in the middle of the night.  Hey, at least I put her pants back on :)

and a chance to wear some warm jammies....Finally Mia gets to wear them.  I bought these over 5 years ago when we started our wait and tonight I got to put them on Mia :)  So cute!

Cool morning......finally!

A little cooler this morning down here in FL, a welcomed change.  Excuse the hue on the pic, not easy to get a moving target and your settings all at the same time.

6 months

Today marks the date we have been a family of three!  Where did the time go, I remember texting everyone on the day we got our referral and the next thing I know here we are preparing to celebrate Mia's 2nd Birthday.

Mia continues to amaze us, there is nothing she won't do or try.  Currently she is mimicking everything we say (oops) so it's quite funny around the house these days.  Dink, juc, mik, craka, sit, up, down, no and my personal favorite.......still is.......MINE!  She has many words in her vocabulary but these are the cutest to hear her say (all except for the MINE).
As you can see, Mia has become Daddy's girl.

Girly big wheel

Like this???

Oh I can ride it??

Go, Go, Go!!!1

Yea, I had fun!
Tonight we finally were able to got outside and play for a while before bath time.  Mia got a new Princess Big Wheel this weekend and is learning how to pedal it around.  Her feet just barely touch the pedals but soon she will be able to reach.

On the toddler bed...........last night was a huge success.  Mia slept the entire night and didn't try to get out of bed until this morning when I went into her room to get her up.  This evening after playing with her Big wheel she said "Nite Nite" and gave me the baby sign for sleep around 6:45 pm so off to take a bath and she seemed excited to climb into her bed.  I never had to tell her to go to bed, she just did it on her own.
We are some lucky parents :)  Just waiting for the day she becomes stubborn.

Oh and the patch, if you remember we are having a little trouble with the eye muscles of her right eye so she is wearing a patch on every other eye, 2 hours a day for 4 months.   The patches come in all kinds of groovy colors, she doesn't even mind wearing a patch................damn we are lucky!

Big girl bed

Mommy's back just couldn't handle the crib anymore soooooooooooooooo today we converted Mia's crib over to a toddler bed.  As of this post it is 11:45pm and she has been in her "new bed" since around 8pm with no complaints AND she hasn't gotten out.  Will have to see what the morning will bring.
Oh, this is so much easier for mommy to work with, now if I could only move her room down to the first floor.
