Since I'm with child, soon, I won't be able to do some things I do with Mia. So, Mia is in training. Big Girl Boot Camp. She now gets into her car seat all by herself...I couldn't imagine trying to get that done while 9 months pregnant! She's graduated from her booster seat to a regular dinning chair. She can get up and down on that all by herself, too. Now, we'll slowly work on transitioning her from her crib to her toddler bed.
Yesterday, Xenia (my new housekepper) came over with her two kids, Aaron and Emely (that's how she spells it). While Xenia cleaned like a tornado, Aaron played with the wii and Emely played with Mia....I did laundry....lots and lots of laundry. Xenia, while not as meticulous as Raquel (my mom's housekeeper), did a pretty good job. She just missed a few things....oh, the hardship of having 'staff'. Puh-lease...I'm NOT like that at all, and you know it! :) Mia had a BLAST with Emely. She even learned how to fix up her doll house like a big girl would.
On the way out of their home, Mia noticed a decorative fish in Gale's flowerbed, and tried to take it home! Swiper no swiping!
After the bubble fun playdate, we hit Sun-harvest (thanks mama Gale, for reminding me that these stores exist!)..Mama & Boo scored some great organic fruit...Mia scored a sparrow! The sparrow is a little on the rotund side, so squeezing it was difficult for Mia. So, she just wacked it on the cart! Hey, it worked :) Oh, while we were getting into the car, Mia noticed something across the street, and called it a robot, robot, robot! It turned out to be a statue at the Ben Hur Shriners building...Oops
