little letters {the good, the happy, the sad}

Sorry for the poor picture quality, you have no idea how much work it took to get a picture this decent... ha ha! Seriously!
Dear Alyx, I loved our spontaneous get together! It was SO great meeting up! You are so cute! And I'm betting with the way Mia was snuggling you, she thinks you're just as awesome as I do :)

Dear great Grandma, we will miss you so much but my heart is happy knowing that you are reunited with grandpa! You've been so ready to be with him again these past 10 years. It's amazing to think of the legacy you have left behind... 10 kids, 52 grandkids, 67 great grandkids, and 1 great great grandbaby (my sweet Mia). I am so happy you got to meet my baby before your passing. We love you forever!

Dear Eric, will you run another race with me? Pretty please.... with a cherry me on top? The color run was just so fun and I'm dying to run something else with you! I suppose I'd love you either way, but you'd score some major brownie points if you say yes ;)

Dear Mia, I had the urge to check and see if you're teething yesterday when BAM! You have 1 tooth that has cut through and part of a second one! Your bottom two front teeth! Let me tell you baby girl, this was quite the surprise! My heart almost burst with mommy pride because you are growing so well, and you handled teething like a champ! You were a little whiny for a couple of hours the day before and that's it! I thought you were just tired but obviously it was your teeth. But at the same time, I'm kind of sad because you're growing too fast, and I'm going to miss your huge gummy smile!

Dear July, you are a month full of fun and changes! Life is going to be crazy but it will be worth it! 

Dear readers blog friends, to celebrate Mia's big milestone of teething (and handling it like a champ) I am offering 25% off advertising from now until the end of July! Just enter "25july" for the promo code! Here's to a happy month of July and many more milestones for Mia :)

Sorry to hear about your great grandma. Sounds like she definitely left a great legacy.

Let me know if/how you get your husband to do another run with you. I'm trying to convince my husband to do one run. :)

My condolences for your grandma. She definitely leaves behind a LONG legacy, and it would make me happy to think of grandma and grandpa reunited. It's a touching thought.
