happy 18 months to my love bug

I'm not really sure how it's possible, but Mia is a year and a half old! It's been the funnest 18 months and we are so blessed with every second we've had Mia in our lives! I can't wait for the many more years to come with our favorite little love bug!
- Mia had her second haircut and loved it just as much as the first!
- She has pretty much mastered eating with a fork! She can eat her yogurt with a spoon really well, but I don't dare let her try a spoon with anything else.
- Teething is a beast now that she's getting her canines. She has only had 1 cut through so far, and that was a nightmare! I'm not looking forward to the other 3 (she is working on her second one right now).
- Mia has added "go" and "outside" (ow-iiiiiiiiiii) to her vocabulary. She also says "buh-bye" instead of just "bye" :)
- She can officially climb up all of our couches and kitchen chairs, yikes! She hasn't figured out going from the chairs to the table yet... and I'm dreading the day she does!
- Mia figured out how to blow bubbles in the water... all by herself! This is kind of a big deal since Mia isn't very adventurous in water. She will stand, kneel or sit, but she doesn't lay on her belly or do any of the fun stuff... which is fine with me until she learns to swim ;)      
- It's finally nursery time at church! I've been waiting for this time to come for months, ha ha!
- Mia can officially (and has been able to, I just forget to share) point to her (or our) mouth, ears, eyes and nose (and she says the last two)!
- I took a picture of Mia's first band aid (the first time she needed one not because of shots) because I thought it was a milestone to record, but she's had multiple band aids in the last couple weeks and it's just really sad for my momma heart, ha!  
- Mia still wears size 3 diapers.
- She wears some 6-9 month outfits, mostly 12 month and a few 18 month clothes (she still wears her 0-6 month swim suit, the first one we ever bought her! ha). She's up to size 4 shoes now! We love our tiny baby!

Hannah said...

Oh, what a sweet little princess! ...and I really need to work on teaching Emerson how to use a spoon for his yogurt and a fork for his food. yikes. We might be a little behind on that step... Oh, goodness. Climbing?! Why must they climb? it scares the dickens out of me! Hopefully she doesn't figure out how to get onto the table!

that dress!!! Beautiful! Such a tiny cute girl!

Sara McCarty said...

She is such a cutie! I have a hard time with the band-aids too! Mac doesn't like them either. Every time he sees one on another kid he gets a sad look on his face and says "ouchie." Breaks my heart.

GAH! Courtney, Mia is so adorable. Her smile melts my heart. She is growing!

Kirsty and Seth said...

She's such a sweetie! You'll have to let me know how she settles in nursery, Seth or I still have to go in and more often than not stay in every week with Caleb! Last week was the first time he made it almost all the way through :)
