There were a lot of movies in 2009 with the number nine in their titles. Sorry, but here is another nine making it's debut!
Mia continues to revel in bath-time. I usually try to get in a good hair session because I can actually comb it while it's wet and lathered in conditioner, and Mia can be distracted by her rubber duck.
Our weekly post-church photo (note- whatever is on her feet before we leave rarely makes it home in place):
Mia is beginning to look at books on her own now. I am amazed that this increasingly mobile chick can still sit through books as long as "One Fish, Two Fish..." (it really goes on forever!).
I now have good reason to vacuum and mop daily. At her angle, Mia finds things that are invisible to the naked adult eye. Yesterday, she found this cricket (we get lots of visitors where we live) and thought it was so funny to try and catch it as it hopped away. This morning, she put a stink bug in her mouth before I could grab it out of her hand. It sprayed its juices (is that what it does?) and Mia cried. I wasn't sure whether to call poison control, or laugh. She spit it out and drank lots of apple juice to wash the stink down. Yum!
Crawling in dresses & pantyhose on hardwood floors is like having a built-in treadmill.
