I smile!

I was going to share Mia's Christmas wish list today but I'll be honest, making her birthday wish list was difficult for me! I'm not really sure what Mia wants besides our car keys, empty boxes and bags to carry around her arm (she's totally into carrying a bag the way I carry a purse, except she can't get the straps all the way to her shoulder, ha ha!) and food. The girl loves food! Instead, I realized I haven't done one of these "I smile" posts in a couple of years and it is WAY past time!
Ha ha. Hahaha. Mia is SO mad!
I smile...
...thinking about my conversation with Eric last night. We were agreeing that we both want to wait longer to have another baby when he explained that "his heart is already so full thanks to the two girls sitting in front of him". My heart kind of stopped when he said that. It was the simplest way of describing just how much Mia and I mean to him and I loved it!
 ...every time Mia growls. It seriously cracks me up every time! I don't know if I'll get used to that sound coming out of her mouth.
...each morning when I wake up (once I get over the annoyance of having to be awake) because I have butterfly's in my stomach! Every single morning (starting Monday) this week I have woken up excited (legit butterflies in the tummy) for the upcoming celebrations! I'm excited for Mia's birthday and Christmas! We are going to have so. much. fun!
...about my hair. I was tempted to shave my hair off the beginning of the summer and I'm so glad I held out! I'm loving the long hair that took OVER 5 years to grow out!
...because I have the best blog friends! Social media is an amazing world and I'm so amazed by the people it has brought into my life! I'm thankful for this corner of the internet that lets me ramble about my baby and meet the best girls! (And remember, in celebration of Mia turning one I am offering a buy 1 get 1 free promo on any ad space! After you purchase your ad I will email you a code to use in the future for a FREE ad!)
...because I have a GOOD life. I am relearning each day that it really is the little/simple things that mean the most!

I think it's smart to wait! (If you can of course) It's so fun to enjoy the first few years! Our kids our 10 years apart and although if under different circumstances I would have had another sooner then 10 years later, it's just the way it had to work out for us. & I wouldn't change a thing!

What a great post idea! I just love it. And I think that waiting for another baby is a great idea-- enjoy your time with Miss Precious while you can and savor it. Oh and I would love to hear Mia growl. I bet it's hilarious!

She totally needs her own purse. One of my friends does that for her daughter and the purse carries snacks and her ipod. Quite cute!
