just some randoms {30}

She's really taken to dressing herself these past few weeks... she did come ask me for help with her shoes because for some reason, she couldn't get them over her tights :) ha HA!

Mia had a rough time falling asleep for her nap a few days in a row this week. One day I noticed in the monitor that Mia grabbed her baby and snuggled her close, rocked her, patted her back, etc. After awhile of "soothing" her baby, Mia fell asleep herself :) It was so sweet to see her little momma instincts come out! And thank heavens it put her to sleep ;)

It all started when I was cooking dinner. "Look at my hinger, momma!" I turned and saw that Mia got into the aquaphor and was rubbing it around her mouth (she gets dry spots around her mouth with all the swimming/sunscreen we do) I helped her rub it in but told her that she's not to get into it again without help from mommy or daddy- it's not a toy! She happily replied with an "OKAY!" while she ran back to her bedroom. Awhile later she came out and said, "look momma! Take it off ma hand!" I guess she thought the tub of cetaphil was fair game since I only specifically mentioned the aquaphor this time (although she's been told the cetaphil is off limits as well) Mia was so, so proud of this mess, ha ha! I felt like I should be mad about the mess (the carpet was fun to clean as well) but I could barely give her a stern "no!" as I was cleaning her up because she was so proud of her lotioning skills, ha ha! Also, let it be known that Mia picked this outfit (she's obsessed with the shorts because of the pockets, and obviously thought this shirt would be the perfect match!) and it just wasn't worth the fight to get her to change her mind before we left to run errands :)

Sweet, sleeping angel who is forever obsessed with Mickey and Minnie mouse :)

"I'm Ariel, mom. Watch!" As she jumped up and down, dunked under the water and pranced around the best that she could in the water, ha ha! Such a fun imagination and she's getting so good at handling herself in the water!

Oh gosh, she is the cutest little Ariel there ever was! I love how she took your "no more of that" literally and went for the next best thing. And snuggling that little baby doll?? So cute! Love these randoms!!

Harper has that exact Mickey and Minnie and she will NOT go to sleep without them. We recently had to go to Target and purchase a mini Mickey and Minnie to use at daycare during naptime.

Such a sweet little mama! She couldn't sleep until her baby was safe and sound and take care of. So so sweet!

Desiree Macke said...

Oh my gosh, those tights - HAHAHA!!!
Don't you just love it when the little disappears and comes back covered in one thing or another?! Ha. Been there!
There is nothing sweeter than a sleeping babe. It's about the best thing ever. I have SO MANY pics of Marcus sleeping... Some might wonder if I'm not a little weird.

I can't even imagine how cute it must be to watch and listen to her via the monitor! I can't get over the idea of her soothing her "baby" and helping it fall asleep. So freaking cute. I love these random Mia updates.

She is just too precious. It'll be a fun day when Sophie can dress herself. And Sophie's always proud of herself when she gets into things. Most days are spent with her giving me yet another item that she's not supposed to have.

Also I hope you saw my response, for some reason I couldn't respond back in email, I couldn't find the email in my email :(

hahaha I love the mess! So hard to be annoyed when they are oh so cute about it. It is a nice combo of the two emotions.

Mickey and Minnie are simply the best.

I bet she has the softest arm ever :).

Little Mia, I TOO was Ariel every time I entered water :-) I just love that she's almost always photographed with that baby doll! And hey - at least you know her sensory skills are spot on with that cetaphil and aquaphor!

Sarah said...

So cute! My daughter is obsessed with Mickey and Minnie too. And sometimes it just not worth the fight on what to wear, currently we're in a I only dress in princess related phase...oy!
