Eight Months with Mia!

Mia has been all ours for eight months now! Time is flying and I'm working on her 1st, 3rd Birthday Party! Yep, you read that right. It's her very first birthday party but she's turning three! Of course we plan to blow it out of the water! It's only fitting!

Currently, she's sitting in my lap getting a blood transfusion. This time we were able to go four weeks between transfusions instead of three like we have been. Thankful for that but keeping in mind Thalassemia is a marathon not a sprint!

Mia started preschool last week! She is going to the same school that Brooks goes to, which is the same one that the other kids went to as well! It went as well as I expected it to. I'm hoping this week is better! We only left her for a few hours a day each day last week to help her adjust.

Last week we had her follow up with the International Adoption Clinic. Everything went well there! She's doing really well in all departments! One of the therapists suggested she start speech therapy. As soon as the other kids get settled into a new school year we will start that! She is doing really well with English, especially since she was only introduced to it eight months ago! The speech therapy will just be to help her catch up to other kids her age.

She still loves food. BUT, several times in the last few months she will say, "I done" without a clean plate. She FINALLY realizes food is not going to be taken away. This is not the same with drinking, but we are still working on it!

This baby LOVES to SING! and DANCE! She loves the movie Trolls and the movie Sing!

Now for some random pics from the month!

Our power was out one morning so these three made a tent with Reece's gymnastics mat, her practice beam and some sheets! haha!

 Still can't keep his lips off her cheeks...

 Mia likes to take one of her siblings with her to get labs drawn, this time it was Peyton's turn!

Daddy's turn to take Mia for blood!

 I have no words for this...

Celebrating EIGHT months with our girl!
