Mia is 6 Months Old!

This past week has been very difficult with the passing of my dad. However, this little peanut is what keeps me going, so I want to share some happy news and some pictures. Mia is now 6 months old. At her 6-month appointment, she weighed in at 17 1/2 pounds (80th percentile) and is 27 1/2 inches long (95th percentile). She is doing really well eating her solids and really enjoying them. She has gone through her vegetables and has started on her fruits. She also has been introduced to the sippy, although she doesn't really seem to have a clue how to get the water out of it yet! Mia is such a firecracker and loves rolling around after Zip and playing in her exersaucer. Here are some recent pictures...

Visiting the Family

As I mentioned yesterday, this has been a busy, busy weekend. Here are some pictures from Mia's visit today with her Grandma, Grandpa, Great-Grandma, Great-Grandpa, and Great Aunt! She had a great time seeing everyone and performing all of her new "tricks" that they hadn't seen yet.

Mia's Busy Weekend

Mia had a busy weekend, starting with this past Thursday. Mia began the weekend, hanging out with Pam, Venessa, and Rebecca who came by to help me celebrate my birthday (it's was also Mia's 1/2 birthday on Friday!).

Then on Friday, we dropped Mia off with Grandma and Grampy Sellers, so Cort and I could go to PF Changs to celebrate. Mia also helped me to open my gifts and served as the official bow holder...

On Saturday, we headed to Aurora to watch Cort's cousin Paige play volleyball-she was very impressive to watch! Mia had a chance to watch volleyball and hang out with her Aunt Diane again.

Tomororrow we see the great-grandparents....

Does It Get Any Better Than This?

Watching Baby Einstein, while playing in the Baby Einstein exersaucer (thanks Lisa and Venessa!)....

The look on Mia's face here is too funny!

Snow Day!

How exciting! Today Cort and I both received calls before 6 a.m. telling us school was cancelled. I was surprised since it didn't seem too bad out, but thrilled to say the least. So of course, what do I do? Torment my poor child with the camera some more. Here are some new pics of Mia who will be 6 MONTHS OLD on Friday!!

This one is just because it's funny!

Visit With The Family

Today Cort and I headed over to Jen's for a visit with her and Noah, as well as Mom and Dad. Mia and Noah had a great time hanging out with their Grandma and Grandpa! Grandma and Grandpa were so thoughtful to give Mia a Valentine's day. She loves her stuffed animal and 2 new board books!

Bear Down!

What a sad day! The Bears didn't win the Superbowl, but I guess there's always next year. Here is the next generation of Bears fans showing their spirit at Andy and Shannon's.

Tutu Cute!

So in getting in the spirit of Valentine's Day, here are a couple of tutu pictures of Mia. She wasn't crazy about wearing the tutu, but she sure did enjoy putting it in her mouth!
