We have been willing in the spring by spending a lot of time outside. Mia has a whole "outside" routine. After going to visit Izzy and Winnie, she RUNS down the hill to the "jump" (trampoline). Here she is cruising down the slope!
Gma K's friend, Doug, who is a former Math teacher, got this awesome wooden cutting set for Mia. She has got all the names of the fruits and veggies down, and, as was Doug's intention, is subliminally learning her fractions.
One of our parks is exclusively for toddlers. It has these fun climbing rocks! While there, we got to meet with Mia's beautiful birth mother, Asia, and her cute son, Nemo.
Nemo is 18 months older than Mia, but with her hair, they are close to the same size!
Grandma K always begins the birthday season for my family. We went to Texas Roadhouse for her dinner, and I could hardly believe her courage while the staff sang to her and set her on this saddle. Mia wanted to get in on the action:
We have been washing and prepping all of our baby things for our new addition!
Mia thought the Boppy worked better as a clothing accessory. She danced around with it on her shoulders all day!
Since we have been at Grandma & Grandpa R's house, we've had party after party with the cousins. Mia is in heaven when Talan and Sydney come to visit!
Aunt Arianna's 13th birthday, which followed Uncle Ethan's and Gma K's, was celebrated at one of our favorite winter destinations: the giant indoor water park. Mia slept well that night!
Smelling the pansies only to feign delight at their non-smelliness:
Mia loves the reaction she gets from Mom when slimy hands meet newly washed hair.
