HB MIA!!


showing "three"--most of the time the last couple of days she's said she's turning two..... she also has a hard time getting the right chubby little fingers to stay down.



i can hardly believe that my baby is three years old today. honestly, i just started having kids like 2 seconds ago--now i'm sooooooo barren (translation: tubes tied in a big ole knot) and i can't believe that my little one is hardly little.

mia was such a good baby--so easy and easily pacified. she has had the attention and adoration of her 3 older sisters for her entire lifespan, and continues to be the queen of the castle, managing somehow to always get her sisters to give her whatever she wants, all the while making it seem like it was their idea. smart little cookie, that one.

she LOVES to sing and knows the words to many different songs, and likes it best when the music is turned up way past eleven (see other post today) and her latest love is to dance around, twirling in a circle with arms held out, in her version of "whirling fish disease".

mia loves anything pink or shiny or a purse or container that she can load alot of crap into and transfer from one point in the house to another. she loves to have aunt megan polish her toenails and fingernails, but is most famous for giving midnight manicures or improving upon our family portraits with a sharpie. she has been such a funny, joyful little person and has brought much laughter and many smiles to our house.

one thing mia does that is hilarious is to pose--it doesn't matter how many photos we take, she is always gonna tuck one foot in, stick her hip out with her hand on it and "work it"!!

we use the word "numa-numa-numa" round these here parts to describe anything really yummy--it comes front the time aunt megan was over at our house making cinnamon rolls and mia was all nervous about getting her fair share. megan put them in the oven and then told her as soon as they were done cooking, she could have one. mia stood right there, hands pressed up against the glass, nose nearly touching, as she watched those rolls bake and kept repeating, "numanumanumanumsssss...." the entire time.

everytime we go to load up in the car, you will hear mia yell "SHOTGUN!!! SHOTGUN!!" she has no idea what it means, but she's heard her sisters say it for so very long that she knows it's important to say it loudest, and firstest. she also loves to have "spider juice", which is actually bug juice as we've pointed out to her many a time, but she refuses to say anything but spider juice. being the retard that i am, i didn't get it until i was purchasing one for her in maverick about a week ago and the clerk was trying to be funny and asking if i wasn't just a little old to be buying bug juice.(i most certainly am NOT, thank you very little. frickin' punk.) i said that my baby called it "spider juice" and he picks it up and looks at it and says , "oh, i see, because it has a spider on the front."

i really hate it when the convenience store worker is more perceptive than me. typical.

oh, mia--we love you so very much!! you are our little lady and we are so glad you are part of our family---you make us complete.

Sweet Mia...may today be the best day EVER with lots of deserved attention from all the family. Tell your mom to get your present from Aunt Loni that she left at Grandma's house.

Oh, little adorable mia. I like to press my hands and nose to the oven when Megan is baking something as well. She gets the numma numma response out of many a people. How I wish we could get Mia and Taylor together to play. They could be great friends. I'm sure it is bitter-sweet watching the last one grow up so quickly. She really is so beautiful!

Happy Birthday to Mia! She is so darn cute! I loved having her in nursery. I can't believe how big she has gotten. And it sounds like if we left her and Hayden in a room together, they could certainly cause some trouble! Hope it has been a great day!
