Video of Mia's First Birthday

Yes, I am actually making a post on the blog! Paco was in Vegas this weekend so I had a little time to myself. I managed to make my first movie; I think you'll be very impressed with my movie making skills!

As you read earlier, we had all of the grandparents here for Mia's first birthday. It was a lot of fun. The video is of her actual birthday on Feb. 1st, as well as some footage from her party on Feb. 3rd.

My goal is to continue working on videos of Mia's first year (before she's two!) Stay tuned over the next few weeks...

Mia's Walking

So we thought she'd be walking at Christmas, but Mia was still holding on to coffee tables and couches. At the most she was maybe taking one tentative step, but nothing we thought warranted a "Mia's Walking" post. Well, now shes taking 5 or 6 steps on her own. I think she'll be using it as her primary mode of transportation soon.

Pics of Mia's 2nd 1st birthday party are up

We had a party with Mia's grandparents on Mia's actual birthday. Then, on Saturday all her friends came over. I think there were 7 kids here: Mia, Alejandro, Paola, Isabella, Gabriella, Jordan, and Wesley. Fun.

Pics from the entire birthday weekend are here.

One Year Old

Today was a bit crazy -- Alli and I both worked in the morning and then took the last few hours of the day off to come home and celebrate Mia's birthday with both sets of grandparents. We opened presents, had a delicious dinner and then ate cake. Couldn't ask for more. Mia loved her walker thingy and, of course, her stuffed Elmo. Elmo is the only commercial baby product she's into -- she loves the show, calls Elmo by name and even tries to sing the "la, la, la, la" Elmo theme song. Trust me, its about as cute as it gets. Here's all the pics.
