Mia's Mug by request

It's been a minute since I posted about the cuteness that is miss Mia. I forget to post about her progress because not much has changed. A little here and there, but the one thing that hasn't changed is that she's C U T E - CUTE! I know this little face has dominated this blog(which was warranted) so here are some more for those of you who needed a Mia fix.
She is learning to sit up on her own, but taking her own sweet time. Some times we call her bag-a-bones or sack-a-potatoes. John likes to call her limp biscuit- lovely.

Don't let the bottle fool you, she merely dabbles in bottle feeding. This is the exact face I get when I try to feed her. She smiles, laughs, sucks a little, smiles some more, gums the bottle, then after a few swallows she locks those lips. If you couple this with her new talent of extreme back arching- she wins every time. So....she still has her feeding tube. I have a love/hate with the thing. Love it for meds... and pretty much hate it for everything else.

Love this FACE! I just want to eat it up...

Ok- there is something to report. Miss noodle leg learned how to straighten her knees. Now she is a jumping maniac in her jumperoo. It is super entertaining. She still won't stand in my lap, but I am not in any hurry. She actually had her first physical therapy session today. I have been avoiding therapy because I wanted to have some time with my wobbly infant. I should have started sooner because I LOVE her therapist. More on this later.

Mia finally gets some revenge!!

Ellie still hasn't let down AT ALL. In fact she is now starting to pick Mia up and carry her. No harm done yet... but it's only a matter of time. Often times Mia will be innocently swinging away in her swing and Elvis will pick her up which makes Mia nervous and she fusses. When I come running at a dead sprint Ellie looks up and says, "Mom, Mia was asking for you."

Ellie is always eager to interpret why Mia is fussy. "Mom, Mia says she wants me to hold her." "Mom, Mia wants a bath." "Mom, Mia said she wants to watch me play atachillie (don't ask)."

I enjoy her interpretations and usually humor her silly requests for "Mia's needs." However, when I try it- Ellie doesn't buy it.

Me: "Oh, Elvis, Mia says she needs a break from you in her face." To which she replies matter of factually "Um, she can't talk yet."

Wish me luck with that one!

I am a newcomer to your blog. I found you on Angel Gracies blog. I am a heart mom myself so I enjoy reading how other little heart babies are fairing. Mia is so adorable and I love all that hair. I can't wait to my little girl gets more hair.
I love how your little Ellie inturprets everything for her. Made me laugh, it reminds me of my boys telling me what Lily needs. And they have told me the same thing, that she doesn't talk how that works.

I am glad I read about your little Mia, because she is an insperation. Lily might need a transplant one watching other little ones grow that have been through it, gives me hope.

Sending you our Heart hugs and Blessings.

This is the cutest post ever. Nothing makes me happier than seeing her so healthy and happy. What a little trooper. She has such a spirit about her, I can just tell from pictures. So she is not taking anything orally yet? ALthough I am a SLP, I haven't worked much with little guys. However I do have access to information so you should email me and tell me everything she is doing/not doing and I will do some research!
Are you working with an SLP? She is SOOOOOOOO cute!

You are such a cute mommy with the ellie/mia mix. I am wound up too tight to roll with it like you do and I admire you! Ellie is such a sassy, SUPER SMART and all around to die for little girl, I love it when you write about her antics!

Mims, it's really easy to add the no right click- just google "no right click" (shocking, I know) and it will bring up a little code. Just copy and paste it into a new element (Add HTML) and there you have it! Good luck!
