After the boys got out of school yesterday (Friday) we went to Disneyland with their cousins Kaity and Kylie and Laila and the kids. We try to get there as often as possible but have not made it there in over a month so we were real happy to get back to the HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH!!!! We did the normal and the kids, as always, had a blast. Lai and I just love Disneyland and it always gives us an excuse to eat like crazy pigs (You know we have to buy the hot fudge sundae-- for the kids-- right??). Since Mia has been home there has been a new magic with Disneyland. Mia has been about 4 times but now there seems to be something magical and new. We never use to go through the castle and go on the kiddy rides because the older kids wanted to do the fast rides. Now, we spend a ton of time in the kiddy area and the older kids actually like it. Just like my older kids dont seem to mind watching all the kiddy shows on PBS Kids (Dragon Tales, Sagwa and others). It is like they are enjoying being transported back a few years and while it is only a few years for them, they really seem to like it. They loved Mr. Toads Wild Ride and Peter Pan and the Merry-go-round and all the other little kid rides. It is just interesting and I love the renewed magic of Disneyland.
Today is Mia's 11 month birthday. In one month my baby will be a year. I must say I feel fortunate that she is turning 11 months today and we have had her for over 4 months. We have, luckily, got to experience almost all her "firsts" with her. We got to see her sit up and roll over and rock on her knees and crawl and pull up and now, almost walk (not yet but getting close). She is just amazing and I feel so blessed to have our little opinionated spicy Hunan girl in our lives. She has blessed us beyond comprehension.
