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!
