then I watched this.
It has been fascinating to read about the debate over this film's subject and its cultural/political significance (read this for a fresh, and probably accurate, perspective on the film). Up until a year ago, I had no IDEA this issue even existed! I now realize that little girl hair is one thing and this white mama has a lot of other things to learn before Mia becomes adolescent.
I welcome all insight to this new (to me) world of relaxers, weaves, or otherwise from women who know...please...
(Anna, Asia, Charlene- if you are reading, this includes you!)

Mia is often getting herself into precarious situations in order to entertain her mom and break up the ennui of everyday tasks (like laundry).
Here is one of our weekly post-church photos. She looks especially beautiful in tropical colors. We are excited to ditch the pantyhose soon! They don't make for pleasant diaper changes.
Mia is mesmerized by Gma K's Valentine's gift despite its increasing appeasement to gravity.
Aaaand she has finally decided to retire from her rolling/pivoting mode of trasport.
Thank you for indulging our obsession with Mia's milestones.

After losing a bet over some insignificant thing, I finally agreed to seafood on my own grounds: fresh halibut (caught by Dad R in Alaska and supposedly the least fishy fish ever invented) + a little Giada De Laurentis.
Check out her Halibut in Artichoke and Tomato Broth. I served it over brown rice and parmesan.
Here I am eating my first plate of fish ever (at least that I can remember), and it was yummy! Omega-3 fatty acids, here I come!
