Dancing Mia!

Here's the promised video! All prettied up and stuff.

Also, take notice... She falls at the last beat of the music. Cracks me up everytime! Its like she planned it that way.

Yes, updating! I didn't realize it had been so long. I have good reason, however, why it has taken me so long to get a post in. First, Mark wouldn't let me post just any video... it had to be all prettied up (love you, baby. And I'm working on it.). Second, we went to Austin for the Phi Lamb 20th anniversary. (FUN!) Third, Mia came down with a stomach virus. Fourth, then I came down with a stomach virus. Blech.

I am back. Here are some new things that Mia is doing now that I would be completely remiss not to write about.

* Everything that is laying down, on the floor, or otherwise not in motion is apparently asleep to Mia. She makes snoring noises.

* She loves to give everything and everyone "eskimo kisses". Her bears, her wind-up fish, Mark and I. Just today she gave her friend, Carter, the sweetest eskimo kisses. Ah... we've joked about an arranged marriage... but maybe?

* She is obsessed with her bouncing zebra and rocking horse.

* She cannot get enough of dancing. Now, I know what you are thinking... yes, Melissa, you totally "encouraged" that. But I didn't! I never once encouraged her to dance when she wasn't already. She just naturally does it. She's quite good, actually. She sways with the beat and is very consistent. She dances several times a day, going to play her Fridge DJ more times than I can count. Its way too cute.

* She loves being naked!

* She only wants to be outside. Yes, I am so being repaid for this, as I was the child always outside. From the moment she gets up to when we force her to go to bed she is at the door, pointing and hoping that I'll oblige. She hates coming inside, and asks to go for a walk either in her regular stroller, the jogging stroller, or in the wagon. Some days we go on three or four walks a day! Zee loves this, as you can imagine. :)

* She loves to see herself in the camera. So much so that you can barely get a picture of her anymore. She won't stand still long enough for you to snap the picture before she starts to come look at the camera.

A picture... for your enjoyment.

Outside = Awesome!

These Boots are Made for Walking...


I remember playing in my daddy's boots. So, its only fitting that Mia had a great time playing in Grampy's boots. So cute!

Let's see if these fit...
Yep, perfect! I think I'm going to need a little help with that, Grampy. Please?
Grampy's boots are the best. :)
