Mia and I were at GAP yesterday looking at all their cute spring stuff (which I must say I am totally against since it is just now finally getting cold here in SO CAL) which is totally cute by the way and she found these sun glasses. She just thought they were the greatest thing and freaked when we had to leave and she couldn't take them with her. I was not about to pay $10 for something she would break 10 minutes after walking out of the store. Anyway Mia was so cute with the glasses and all the store employees were coming over and laughing at her. She is really starting to be a ham and likes the attention she gets from others. While she will not go to others easily, she does like making them laugh and smile. You may notice she is wearing another adorable pinafore made by the wonderful MIL Mary. This color pink looks so great on Mia and we got a ton of comments on what a cute pinafore it was-- thanks Mary!!!

The next collage is of Mia and the phone. I have mentioned before that I have a bit of a love hate relationship with the phone but I must say Mia is totally in love with it. You cannot pass any fake phone off as a real one or she will know-- she has a fake detecting sixth sense. Sometimes I will just let her play with the real phone and hope she does not call anyone. Tonight we let her play with the phone. She was having such a great time I had to take pictures of her. It was so cute. She puts the phone to her ear and says Hellllloooo or hi hi hi. The last few pictures is of Mia after I took the phone away. She does not like me taking things she wants away. It is met with great resistance and a bit of a tantrum. I must say they are small kind of pitiful tantrums but tantrums nonetheless. She starts to scream, claps her hands, spins around and then falls to the ground. She lays there crying for a few minutes (actually maybe 20 or 30 seconds) and then she is done. She just lays there and looks around-- gets up and is off again. It is so funny. We just ignore the tantrum until she is done and then act like nothing happened. She seems to respond well to that and it allows us time to secretly laugh at her while she is spinning and clapping and falling (we are not really that bad but it is hilarious). Anyway, after her tantrum I took a few pics of her and got her to smile once again. She just cracks me up!!!
