I was so happy with how the photos turned out to announce our news of baby brother! It's a dang good thing they turned out becaaaaause this balloon was the biggest pain EVER! While ordering this 36" balloon, it never really registered with my pregnancy muddle brain just how BIG 36" would be, ha ha! To give you an idea aside from the pictures... I could not fit this balloon in my Jeep Grand Cherokee, not even through the back! Luckily the grocery store (that made a pretty penny off of me for the helium) was located just across the street from where I was planning on taking pictures, so I loaded Mia in the stroller, tied the balloon to it and made the trek over. You can imagine the looks I got from everyone along the way, ha ha! But getting home was awful... I couldn't bring myself to just let all that money, I mean helium, float to the sky so I drove home with this HUGE balloon hanging out the window. I can laugh at it now (especially when I think of how crazy I must have looked) but I wasn't in the happiest of moods when I was actually having to deal with this HUGE balloon :) Mia, on the other hand, thought it was AWESOME!
I think Mia's going to start demanding a sleep mask once she discovers those as she gets older, ha ha! We always have to tuck her taggie over her eyes while tucking her in for nap/bed! And she always finds a way to cuddle with Mickey or Minnie throughout her sleep :)
I can't resist sharing this. I snapped around 5 photos in a row and silly Mia's face is different in every single one (and Eric's got much happier towards the end) but I died when I saw the first one! They are pulling the exact same face! These two are so much alike without even trying, it's terrifying (to me), ha ha!
Mia is such a little fishy and I love it! It's been so fun to watch her independence in the water grow (with her floaty on, of course) now that she's getting the hang of kicking her legs and "scooping" her arms thanks to swim lessons! It's a good thing we love the water so much because we will be living in the pool all summer long!

I know I already shared a photo or two of Mia loving on her baby, but these photos melt me! Especially since this was totally unprompted. I told her she could sit in the rocking chair with her baby for the pictures and she did all the loving, hugging and kissing on her own! Best big sis in training, ever!!
