Mia update

It's been awhile since I gave an update on our tiny dynamo. Mia is growing up so fast--she's waving bye-bye, saying "mama", pulling to standing, and even cruising on occasion. I predict walking within a couple of months and I'm looking forward to it--I much prefer walking to crawling. Summer is tough with a crawler trying to eat the sand and rocks at beaches and parks.

She's into everything now, opening drawers, ransacking B's toys, pulling off fridge magnets. We have to re-up our babyproofing. As active as B is and was, she was never much into drawers or cabinets so we didn't have to worry too much about her getting into trouble there. Mia will be a different story. If it has a handle, knob, or door she wants to open it and investigate.

She eats like a horse--people are amazed when they see this tiny girl inhaling huge amounts of food. She eats three meals a day plus snacks and takes all of her milk feeds too. I don't know where she puts its! She definitely tires herself out--she sleeps about 13 hours at night, waking up once to eat. She takes two long naps during the day and I almost always have to wake her up to keep her from sleeping the day away.

She's such a snuggly, giggly little bear and she brightens every day!
