2.10

Is there a way to freeze time? Because I suddenly realized just how close Mia is to turning 3 (2 more months... how is that possible?!) I'm both excited and terrified for what's to come as Mia continues to grow! That "threenager" business is the real deal, and she's not even 3 yet... heaven help us, ha ha!

- Mia is a BIG SISTER now! And she's so proud of her new title! She has handled the transition SO well so far and my momma heart couldn't be more proud! Mia loves telling everyone that she's a big sister :)
- I've really noticed a huge jump in Mia's vocabulary and the way she carries on conversations. It's so weird to think that we ever had a hard time communicating! She sounds way too grown up with how she talks, jokes/teases, communicates! 
- She got her last molar, finally! Those 2 year molars were beastly!! Just in time for baby brother to start the teething process, ha ha!
- Mia has officially hit the "I don't like...." stage. "I don't LIKE showers!" (She loves showers) "I don't LIKE eating at home!" "I don't LIKE bweakfast/wunch/deener!" "No mommy, I don't LIKE dat!" One second she will tell me she "lubs" something and the next she changed her mind and doesn't like it. Good grief, ha!  
- She has also turned into the worst eater and that is going to drive absolutely batty!! Mia has always been a champ when it comes to eating food and has never been picky! Aside from not liking one or two things, it's always been very easy to feed her. Over the last few months though she has grown more picky, takes FOREVER to eat, etc. Meal times have turned into the biggest fights and it's kind of a nightmare. I can't wait for this phase to pass!
- Mia is obsessed with singing and we can't get enough of it! 
- She's the best little helper! She loves to clean, fetches whatever we need when we ask her to, etc. She takes pride in being our helper! I hope this phase never passes ;)
- Baby brother got her a strider bike when we brought him home from the hospital (why yes, we were trying to bribe her to like him! but of course we didn't need to try. she has loved him from day one!) and she is fearless on that thing! She loves it so much and now I'm excited to see her on a bike with pedals (hopefully after her birthday or Christmas!)
- She still mainly wears size 2T clothing but wears anything ranging from 12 month - 3T depending on the brand/sizing. She's in size 6 shoes but it's looking like it's time to size up to a 7! 
- Even though she still fits in size 5 diapers, we've moved her up to size 6 (to avoid buying 2 different sizes because she wears a 6 during the night) I've officially set the deadline for diapers! We start potty training mid-end November!

We can hardly remember what life was like without Mia, and now that James has joined the family we are even more grateful for our kids! So much love for our Mia girl!!

That picture is absolutely adorable! Love that she is such a great big sister. It'll be so fun to see how their relationship grows!

Can't get over that picture! Glad she's loving being a big sister and she's such a good helper! :) Hopefully she grows out of the picky eater thing... I never did though :| Although I went through my picky eater stage later so hopefully that means good things for you! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

I love that age when kids start to develop the biggest vocabulary! It's so cute the things they come up with. I love that Mia is so proud of her new role as a big sister! (:

Pretty pretty please try to get a video of that sweet little voice singing something! I can't even imagine how cute that must be! MELT MY HEART.

So cute! I want to get Brylee a strider bike. I have only heard good things! She seems like such a great big sister!

Everyone seems to rave about stride bikes! Hopefully the transition to pedals goes well :)

Awe such a cute girl!! Both my kids went about a year (!!!) of being super picky. It's during a time when they're just not growing much, not as hungry so they can afford to be picky. Not to give unsolicited advice (haha because I hate it, but I'm about to do it anyway!) but just keep serving what you would serve and when they're finally hungry again, they' start eating. Axel is just starting to eat dinner again. Seriously he would just skip it all together most nights :)

omg she sounds so much like Annabelle! The eating drives me nuts but I've pretty much given in to just giving her whatever she'll eat to fill her little belly

Jess Beer said...

OMG, Abbie and Mia are such twins with the eating thing. She is driving me insane! She's pushing away everything she normally likes and it makes dinnertime SO frustrating. Sometimes she eats toast for dinner just because I want her to eat! PLEASE let the phase pass soon for both of us!

Oh the "I don't LIKE" stage... heaven help us! Haha! She sounds so sweet and it's so nice to hear that she's handling the new big sister role like a champ! I can't wait to see my babies together... why does time have to go so quickly?!

Allison said...

I can't believe Mia will be 3! And that picture is just too precious for words!! XO

Oh so sweet. Marissa was just about that age when she became a big sister too. I remember looking at her thinking she looked so little but so big all at the same time. Such sweet memories.

Love that photo.

It is so nice with the improved communication, and it is just the cutest to chat with an almost 3 year old! Aria went from totally good with food to being picky. Very annoying.
