I haven't posted in a while!!
We have been very very busy lately!
We had some family come in town for a week or so. We have been doing a lot and catching up on some family time! Below you can see some of our FAMILY moments. I will try to post more in a few days. My sister and my aunt decided to join in on the kids slide. We also had a great time going to the Brevard Zoo. We fed some birds nectar and saw a butterfly exhibit, but the best was feeding the giraffe's. We were at eye level and they poked their heads thru to get their snacks. As Mia gets older, I can see her enjoying her time with her cousins. I think she is a little timid around her cousin Torey, but after a while she warms up and they play together.

I have started to participate in a weekly photo challenge with fellow China adopt bloggers. Every Friday is a different theme and this week obviously was Play Ball. You can check out the hosts blog at
E N J O Y !!
Mia loves taking our shoes and strolling thru the house. This time she got a hold of Mike's flip flops. She was walking around saying Bye Bye.
This is look we get when we catch her doing something she is not supposed to be doing. This time she is caught trying to open the freezer to get ice.

Spoiled by the Neighbors

our neighbors bought a new ice cream machine and they invited Mia over for their first batch. It was really tasty and Mia enjoyed it ALOT as you can see! We can't wait for the the next batch. Thank You Nina and Mike!!!

Mia just completed her 2 week swimming class. Parents are unable to stay during the lessons, so on her final day, parents are invited to see the progress of each child. Mia is now able to go to the bottom of the pool and get a stick. She is not strong enough to get down herself, but with a little push she gets to the bottom, retrieves the stick (sometime 2 at a time) and turns and swims up. She listens to the instructor and all the kids sit on the edge of the pool and await their turn to swim to her. She can swim a small amount to the instructor and knows to turn back to the wall. She received a small penant with a picture on it of her jumping off the edge. Now that we have observed their techniques, we will definately keep it up. Mia is not afraid to get her face wet and enjoys the pool. Her instructor said she and another child did very well! We will sign her up for more classes to keep up with it. We are so proud of her!
