I have completed my first hand-made addition to Mia's wardrobe (it is not THE FIRST hand-made item in general...we have too many talented grandmas for that...just the first that I have contributed). Because my sewing skills are limited to straight stitches and simple shapes, we are going for the provicial potato sack look. The thing on her left shoulder is further evidence of my big-bow syndrome. I am really determined to avoid any question of Mia's gender.
After testing out all of the available command stations in the Babies-R-Us aisle, Mia decided that she wanted this one in particular. She claims that her two favorite features are the bi-lingual learning center, and the musical classics database. When no one is looking, however, it is clear that the mirror takes up most of her time. She also has an interesting fascination with the dragon puppet's tongue. Merry (early) Christmas, Mia!
