Mia's first Christmas!

Mia's first Christmas was busy. The festivities started on Christmas Eve with dinner at my parent's house (lots of family and good food). Then Christmas day breakfast at our house with my parents, Joey's parents and my grandmas, then to my parent's to open gifts, then to my Aunt and Uncle's house for dinner and a little Rock Band. Saturday we were off to Joey's parent's for Christmas with them. So nice to spend the holidays with wonderful family!

8 months

Can't believe that Mia is 8 months. She is getting so big and it seems like she is doing something new every day. She is still eating all kinds of fruits and vegetables, clapping, waving "hi" and "bye" (sort of), running in her walker, and saying "mama" all the time.

Checking out the Christmas tree for the first time.

First Thanksgiving!

Mia enjoyed her first Thanksgiving. We had a busy couple of days. Thursday was at my parent's house, Friday was at Joey's parent's house, and Saturday we headed up to Pioneer.

7 months and walking (in a walker)

The 7 month photo shoot didn't go so well. Here are the best ones.

Mia figured out that she can go forward in her walker. She is all over the house in this thing. Look out...Mia's liking this walking thing!

Disneyland - Baby = No Stress

In October, I had a two week vacation from work. Joey, my sister (Lisa), my cousin (Kimi) and I headed to Disneyland for a nice little vacation. Mia stayed home with grandma and grandpa. We decided she was a little too young to truly enjoy Disneyland to it's fullest. We had a blast and Mia was a good girl for grandma and grandpa (that's what they told us).

Disneyland was decorated for Halloween! So fun!

"It's a small world after all!"

Indiana Jones...my favorite. We rode it four times!

Halloweenie Fun!

We dressed Mia up as a tiger for Halloween. We went to bookclub in Walnut Creek, went to a party, visited Hi-Bachan and visited Abuelo and Abuelo.

My mom decided that Mia needed to wear her Halloween hat. At first she liked it then she wasn't so sure.

Pumpkin Patch

Mia loved the grass and hay on her feet.

Mia and I headed out to Philips Farms to see the pumpkins with Auntie Vanessa, Uncle Joel & Beau. Mia liked banging on the pumpkins (like they were drums) and trying to eat them. Joey missed our fun outing (he was working) but we took lots of pictures for him.

Beau trying to be a big boy and pick up a pumpkin!
Finally a little smile!

Fun at Tortuga

The weekend of October 17th we headed up to my parent's house in Pioneer (my parents have named the house Tortuga) to celebrate my mom and Vanessa's birthdays. We also celebrated Beau's first birthday (better late than never). Mia and Beau had a great time together.

6 months

Mia is 6 months. She can sit up on her own for a short period of time, is eating pureed vegetables (we have tried carrots, sweet potatoes, yellow squash, peas and cauliflower...so far so good), is cooing all the time, and saying "mama" and "dada" (or so we like to think) and getting bigger and bigger each day. She doesn't look like a newborn anymore. Where did the time go?

Here is my attempt at a photo shoot in Mia's room.

We started the photo shoot on the floor...didn't work out so well. Mia loves to put things on her head (we think it is so funny)! We decided pictures may work out better with the support of her crib...
