Maple Leaf Rag:
Showing her sweet Great-Gma R how to get her groove on. We all could use a few tips from Mia.
She knows how to dance and can effortlessly move in ways that I can't even dream up
It is obviously an inherent gift.
Some more dancing- a variation on tap:
Whipping up some "Reduced Guilt" brownies from TJ's:
Mia is a fabulous kitchen helper.
She is rather possessive of her grandpa.
When cousins get within a certain proximity, Mia gets ready to stake out territory.
On the very day she was scheduled for her flu shot, Mia woke up with a fever, wouldn't eat, and just wanted to be still-- an oddity because she has an immune system of steel, can always eat, is ON the move at all times, but most of all, because the illness lasted for approximately 4 hours. The moment Dad walked in the door from work, Mia shed her resting apparatus and was ready for dinner.
It was strange. What type of illness does this?
And I have to admit-as crummy as it feels to watch one's baby suffer through sickness,
I was in raptures over her snuggliness.
Mia likes her Dad.
Mia gets so much hair time of her own that she is quick to dish it out.
She usually implores, very sweetly, "Mommy, I will fix you, okaaay?"
Izzy spends most of her time lately as a surprisingly tolerant body pillow.
