Our Little Angel

After seeing professional pictures being posted on a ton of blogs, I started to feel like a bad mom for not getting any professional pictures done of Mia yet. So, I got the bug to get it done today. Never mind that Mia seemed to be getting sick or never mind that she was fussy-- I wanted to get the pictures done today and I was going to do so. Well, that didn't work out too well. Out of a slew of pictures taken, this and a few others were the only ones that were even slightly OK. In fact, we did not get one smile out of her and she is normally totally a smiley baby. Anyway, here is the best of the best. I made another appointment to take her back in late next week when hopefully she is feeling better and is back to her old self. I do however think this is a cute picture. She is about a day from crawling so I thought it appropriate to choose a picture in her "ready to go" stance.

So, here is our little angel. She is 8 months old, has been home from China for almost 2 months, has 2 teeth and is the cutest thing you have ever seen. She, as mentioned, is almost crawling and has totally mastered the pincer grip and often times refuses to let us feed her and instead prefers only finger foods. She still does not like formula and may drink 6 to 8 ounces a day but eats a ton of table food. I'm not sure how much she weighs but last time we checked she was 15.5 pounds and 27 inches. She is very inquisitive and studies everything to learn what is going on. She mimics me and smacks her lips like I do. She has clapped her hands before and is starting to pull up on everything. She naps easily two times a day for about an hour each time and goes to bed relatively easily but often wakes up and needs her paci reinserted. She is easy going, adapts to just about anything we can throw at her and easy to smile and laugh. She loves her brothers dearly and will always smile if they come near. She is totally attached to Kevin and I but goes to other people pretty OK now. She still prefers mom or dad but will allow others to hold her. She is happy and as you can see, the cutest little girl in the world. We are head over heels in love with our little beauty and cannot imagine our lives without her.
