ONE YEAR!!! Time flies!!

I can't believe we have had Mia a whole year! What a blessing she has been. We are so happy she is part of our family and I am pretty sure she is happy with us too :)! She is still such a sweet girl! Mia has turned in to a typical little girl. Everything she sees me doing she wants a part of it: make up, jewelry, painted toenails. I don't mind it at all!! We have had a wonderful summer of fun!! Mia experienced her first time at the beach, swimming, water park, zoo and just fun times with family. We are so thankful to God that he placed Mia with us! Riley always says he is thankful that Mia had something wrong with her mouth so that we could have her!

6 months home!

6 months! I can’t believe it has only been 6 months. I am pretty sure we have had Mia for her entire life- it feels that way anyway! Mia is precious! She is doing so well at adjusting. She says several words and her speech therapist is pleased with her progress. She knows about 15-20 words however one of them she has recently learned is MINE!! She has no trouble letting you know what she wants and when she wants  - but she is still precious (and a little spoiled)! We have had a fun winter. Mia experienced snow for the first time. She didn’t know quite what to think but liked playing in it with her brothers. Mia also started daycare but because of all of the snow she has not had to go a whole lot. She loves it though. She usually runs right in ready to play.

We had a great celebration for Mia’s 2nd birthday with our family. During her party, Wyatt was the big helper. He wanted to help her blow out her candles (she doesn’t quite have the hang of that yet). He also sat with her while she opened her presents and handed her one present at a time and was so excited for her when she opened them! She had a great day! Mia and Riley’s birthdays are just 3 weeks apart so we are getting ready for party #2!
