Miss Mia is a big 4 year old now (wow, I have not updated in a
while!). She completed her first year of pre-school with flying
colors. She loved it and had the best teacher! She also completed
her first year of ballet and tap. She did wonderful and really
enjoyed the recital Over the summer she and Mason took a 4 week
tap class, Mia took a 6 weeks Princess ballet class, and both are about
the start a 4 week Disneyland Tap class. Mia and Mason will
begind pre-school on Sept at a new school, A Step Ahead Academic
Academy (thanks Kim for telling us about it!). We are all very
excited for the new school.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Our little girl is getting so big!
In September she started pre-school, she goes 2 days a
week, on Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30-1pm. She goes to a
private Christian School. She LOVES it!!! She really loves
all the art projects, specifically the PAINTING. She participated
in her first bike-a-thon, and got tons of sponsors! THANK
EVERYONE! She's got new friends, and is having a blast. Mia
also started fall ballet and tap classes one night a week. She
LOVES that too! She will have a recidal in May. Since
living at Nana's house she has become good friends with Leah, who lives
next door. Mia and Leah and only a week apart.
Mia turned 3 today! She spent the day at neighbor, Dawn's House
(mommy was in Madera with Papa), and came home in the afternoon.
She had her ballet class (birthday present from Bema and Papa)
and then went to John's Incredible Pizza with mommy, daddy, Mason and
Nana. She also opened a few FUN presents! We can't belive
how old she has gotten! Mia is growing into such a wonderful
little girl. We reciently toured a school for her (Big Valley
Christian School) which Mia will be starting soon. She loves
ballet, dancing, atrs and crafts, reading, and cooking. She still
loves playing with her friends, going to the park and playdates.
She is very much into clothes and shoes! She is 99% potty
trained (all but at night), and is becoming more independant.
Mia is 34 months now, or, less then 2 months from becoming a 3
year old! She is now potty trained (YAY) and sleeps in her big
girl twin bed! Her vocabulary is impressive, she always has
something to say. She also got her own computer not long ago, and
loves that. She still loves to read, play with her friends, cook
(we bakes LOTS of cakes), and she also celebrates her birthday almost
Mia has become addicted to Library Story time. She asks to
go to the library, and when we get there she goes crazy! She
loves the story time, and participates in every song, story, movement,
etc. that they do. She will sit right up in the front, just
inches from the story leader, while Mason and mommy sit in the back!
When story time is over she begs to go look at books! She
also loves books so much that each night when she goes to bed she has
to have at least 3 books in her crib with her and we have to leave the
light on so she can read - AND, she actually does lay there and read
her books for a little while before she falls asleep.
Mia is almost 27 months old now. She has become very
independent lately. Her speach is blossiming every day, she has
so much to say! She knows her colors, shapes and is working on
letters. She loves reading (she even reads to Mason). She
follows instructions pretty well (most of the time, she does have a
stubborn streak!), and is very helpful to mommy. She loves to
play with her friends, and her best friend is Trevor. Mia and
Trevor seem to have a very special bond! She also loves to talk
on the phone, especially to Bema and Papa.
Mia has turned 2 years old! The last 2 years have gone by
so fast, we cannot belive our baby girl is so old! She celebrated
with 2 parties. She had a party for her friends at My Gym (which
Mia goes to weekly classes at), and a family party at home. Her
development is impressive. She speaks sentences, can count to 20
(well, she misses 4 and 5 sometimes) and knows all of her colors.
One of her favorite presents was her new Boat Sandbox from Nana,
Bema and Papa. She LOVES it!
Mia is almost 23 months!!! YIKES, these last 2 years have
flown by. She has definatly entered the "terrible two's".
One of her favorite words is "mine". But, along with her new
vocabulary has come several new sentences, all very sweet and cute!
She also is very good at saying "please", "thank you" and "sorry".
Mia is 21 months old now. She is talking really well now,
saying 3-4 word sentences! She is growing up so fast, we are in
awe everyday. Her newest thing is that she aparently wants to
potty train, so that is an adventure. Her favorites things right
now are The Wiggles, books, puzzles, washing dishes (not kidding!) and
playing with her playgroup friends.
Mia is 17 months old now. She just gets funnier and funnier
every day! She really enjoyed Halloween. She handed out
candy to the trick-or-treaters and just loved every minute of it.
She is learning new words every day, we can't belive how fast she
is learning them.
Mia is 15 months old now. Her personality is so developed,
she is her own person now. She's had her hair cut - she went in a baby
and came out a little girl. The day Mason was born, Mia suddenly
wasn't so small anymore. She has continued to change so much
