She swims & plays

After a long holiday break, we were back at swim class this morning. Mia was soooo ready to get back into the pool, her grin was from ear to ear. She was so excited she just wanted to wriggle out of my arms, that made her sink, so that kind of made her mad. Then she'd giggle and wriggle again :) We have one more class in this session, then she graduates to the next level. I'm so ready to sit and watch her without getting in a suit and all wet.
One of my best friends, Stephanie, has embarked on a new adventure. She sews little monsters and tooth pillows and even has an Etsy site where you can purchase them ;) They are the most adorable ever. So, I've purchased 2 tooth pillows and had my eye on a pink monster, but when I saw it, I fell in love. So did Mia. She wouldn't stop squeezing it and sucking on one of its horns :) Thankfully we purchased it BEFORE she stuck it in her mouth. Even though it's super cute, I somehow doubt anyone else would want a pre-sucked on monster. Mia played very well with Cole and Roarke. Roarke is almost five and very into his Gameboy. He proudly showed me almost every step he took. Cole tried very hard to share his toys, but sharing is hard sometimes :) He's always with bigger kids, and not so much around younger, so he gave Mia some of her own medicine. Mia was a little rough with some younger kids for a while. Mama Stephanie was on it. She's a very present and caring mom. I love being around her and her kids. After some yummy pizza, piano playing and hugs we had to head on home. Naptime ;)
