Mia finally got to see SNOW!!!!

My two favs

On our way home from Spokane this weekend (pictures coming soon...) we stopped at Snoqualmie Pass so Mia could play a little in the snow. It was a beautiful day and of course Mia was smiley even though she was pretty sick with a cold.

Feburary Fun Day!

Mia's butterfly face!

The girls had mid-winter break last week and here are some pictures of some of the fun adventures that we had..... Mia even got to come for some of it :)

We got to swim at the Westin pool which Mia just loved so much she was in the water for over an hour and didd't even want to get out. I think I have a little fish on my hands.
Notice Mia's face: I think she is doing an exact impression of what my face looked like while Ryan was throwing her up.

Nanny Day!

I always said that when I finally was a Mom I wouldn't nanny my kids. But being that I have been a nanny for 9 years now its really hard not to expose her to all the fun stuff I have done with all the kids I have nannied for in the past. Mia doesn't need me to be her nanny she needs me to be her MOM! I want Mia to experience all the great things that I did as a kids like going to Midas to get my Moms brakes fixed and sitting there for 3 hours while she yelled at us for putting the coffee creamer in the water fountain. Or grocery shopping or sitting with at the Dr. office waiting for someone else! So, I have allotted myself 1 day a week to nanny Mia. Today's nanny day consisted of playing at the boat at bell square, baking a valentine cake and Mia attempting her first craft! ALL were a success (sort of).......

She was so proud of herself climbing through the boat! But it was pretty scary for me I had to deflect flying and jumping kids from crushing her.

Here is the Valentine cake. Mia actually had no part in this whatsoever, but soon she will be helping me in the kitchen :)
Now for craft time I got this idea from my friend Emy and basically its contact paper with a heart cut out and by default Mia would drop the different materials on the contact paper and create a beautiful masterpiece.
Notice here she is experimenting with the different senses (taste) She did not like the fuzzy pom poms but took quite a liking to the tissue paper.

Voila! Her masterpiece was made! Even though she didn't really get it AT ALL, I am still going to keep in crafting in hopes that she makes us some really great fridge worthy works of art!

Look who learned a new trick

I found Mia standing in her crib this AM and had to snap a picture since it was her first time doing this. OH! That hair......a vision of loveliness! She also was hitting her bed basically demanding that I come and get her so that we can play :)

Late posting 9 month pics.....

This face above is new! The girls I nanny for tell me she is crazy and I have to agree....

Busy Mia

Mia had a pretty busy weekend! Not only is she crawling but she has already figured out how to get into her drawer and pull out all her jammies (which she thinks is really fun!) Here she is with Auntie Reecer and Chris at Auntie Tamarras basketball game. She is just in love with them both.
She just loves her Grandma and especially loves to try and take her glasses!
Then Mia had a great time with Uncle Belo and Auntie Tamarra playing arcade games. She got to spend the weekend with them!
On Sunday night Ryan Mia and I went with Mes Trev and Tay Tay down to China town for dinner. It was amazing! The girls had a blast, they are really starting to remember each other. Mia spent the most of the night yelling at Taylor and Mes, she is crazy! I wonder WHERE she gets it???????
OH poor Tay Tay its hard enough learning to support her own weight let alone her best friend AND her 98th percentile head!
