Mia's 2nd Birthday/ February - March 2008

Well, this is about a month and a half late, but here goes: Mia's second birthday was last month. She was 34 inches tall and weighed 26 lbs. She is certainly a big girl! She's acting like a true two year old as well. She has her own strong opinions and lets us know when "I don't like that". She is not only talking a lot, she is telling stories and her vocabulary is pretty extensive. She comes home from school and tells us what happened during the day. If you ask her how old she is, she will say "two" and if you ask her what her name is she will say "Mia Nicole Allen". A great quote that she came out with a few weeks ago was "I gotta check my email and then go to work". She can also count to 10 in four languages (Japanese is still a little challenging but she's getting it). Everyday she just amazes us more and more!

Over the last couple of weeks she has mastered bike riding. She now does laps around the house on her tricycle. She's also started to talk more on the phone. She'll tell a long elaborate story that is sometimes difficult to decipher but very cute nonetheless!

We continue to do web cam sessions with Nanie & Grampie and Grandma & Grandpa which she enjoys a lot. We'll get to see them in person soon which will be much better! Auntie Amy and Uncle Chad will also be here soon so we will be sure to add more blog posts and lots of pictures.
