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!
