My Baby Turns 3

Mia3 16

Today was Mia's 3rd birthday. We started out the day celebrating big time, by going to get my fingerprints done! How's that for a celebration? Poor girl. (If you don't know why I'm getting fingerprinted, you must have missed my last two posts. Please go back and read them here.) The fingerprinting only took a few minutes, though, and then we were off to pick up her cake. When we left the bakery, we had an hour to kill before heading over to have lunch with Leila at school. (Leila invited us to have lunch with her and go to recess because it was Mia's special day. How sweet!) As Mia says, it was such a "prettyful" day. (She mixes pretty & beautiful together.) So, she and I walked around the cute little town and took advantage of every little photo opportunity. Unfortunately, all of her birthday pics have a bandaid near her eye as a result of a little injury at the soccer field on Saturday, but I love them anyway.

Then it was off to Leila's school. Leila must have felt like a rock star today because everyone wanted to follow her around with her little sister. She can't wait for us to come back. (Well... really it's all about Mia. Mom just has to tag along. LOL) Mia is so proud to be three years old. Oh my big, baby girl. You make me so happy. Don't grow up too fast!

What an adorable birthday girl! Happy birthday to Mia.

Ahhh yes, the lovely fingerprint office. I know it well. Our fingerprints expired twice during our last adoption, so we had to make THREE different appointments. I still haven't figured out how our fingerprints can change in 15 mos.;) Here's praying this will we your one and only appointment! Have a great week!
