i didn’t want to say anything about fred being gone in case we’ve got a weird creeper stalking our blog, but he was in brazil for 11 days and now he’s back! we laid low over here while he was gone, and i did a bunch of house projects that i’ll post later. anyways, glad to have our dad back.
here we all are in our brasil shirts/jerseys that he brought back for us
for some reason mia was looking extra cute today, even though her hair was messy and her face was all shiny from sunscreen from when we went to the park earlier. i took her outside and snapped a few shots to capture her look, then realized it was her birthday tomorrow. so here we have mia’s three year old pics! the best way i can describe mia, is pure joy. she’s always laughing, playing, singing, running, jumping, dancing, talking, and most of all lately- asking questions.
here’s a typical conversation:
mia: mom, what you doing?
me: oh just doing the dishes.
mia: what the dishes doing?
me: just getting washed.
mia: what getting washed doing?
me: just getting clean
mia: what getting clean doing?
(and this goes on until i answer with something silly so she’ll stop asking questions)
she’s such a little person now that she’s talking. i love to see the world through her eyes, everything is exciting and new. i really love spending my days with her and being the one who gets to answer her never ending questions. she’s so sweet, and smart, and funny, and chubby, and oh so beautiful. happy birthday my sweet mia.
with things the way they are with these little babies, we can’t spend the whole day together as a family so we take shifts. i took the older kids to a movie (mirror, mirror) while mia and jake were asleep in the afternoon, then fred took everyone to the pool when mia got up, and then to the park for fireworks later that night while jake and i stayed home. it was a fun, but pretty typical 4th of july
