Mia & Baby Mia meet again

She's almost walking!!!!

It's been about 2 1/2 months since we visited our pals Kiwe & Tom and their Baby Mia...a LOT has happened since then...they moved into their gorgeous new house. There are SO many wonderful things about their home, but my fav has to be the light switches are dimly lit :) I didn't have to search. Perfect. We were invited for a visit today, but I was shocked to see that it was almost 8pm when Mia and I got into our car to leave. Hello! 4 1/2 hours of nonstop fun, chat, and play.

Last time the girls pretty much ignored each other...this time, they totally interacted. Baby Mia handed Mia her cat, Mia bonked Baby Mia on the head with a ball (it was soft, and this also happened right after Tom and Mia rough housed with pillows)...Baby Mia was not fazed at all, Mia offered Baby Mia a frog, and Baby Mia took it. It was so sweet to see.

Baby Mia is amazingly mobile...not the regular crawling for this 6 1/2 month old...she's cruising the furniture like a pro. She even tried to pull up and cruise on Mia, but she was NOT having it. I made a game of it saying that Baby Mia was going to 'get her'. Mia would run away very much afraid of the two-toothed baby. Baby Mia wasn't too sure about what was going on, but she was totally in LOVE with Mia. Mia would take periodic breaks and climb into Baby Mia's bouncy freakin cute!

Tom. Let's talk about him. Now, I'd briefly met him before, but never really hung out with him. He was totally cool with watching a baby and a toddler while Kiwe gave me the grand tour...he even took Mia outside to look for crystals! By himself!

Then he pummeled Mia with pillows, to her delight. They'd seen the
video of Daryl and I hurling a hug stuffed hippo at our Mia when she was about a year old. I LOVED how comfy he was with her.

Kiwe and I got a wonderful chat in and have made plans for us all to get together for dinner. Daryl was at pool tonight, so he missed out on all the fun.
