Our beautiful seed is starting to sprout....seriously...where did my tiny itty bitty helpless baby go?? She's doing big baby things now like playing in her exersaucer (even though her feet don't reach without a blanket under them) and eating in her high chair and rolling over and over and over, making raspberries, and whining if she gets bored or if we don't feed her fast enough! She's interacting more and smiling a lot! She's no longer content just hanging out....she wants music and lights and action! If you think she looks bigger she IS! She is packing on the chub!
Being cheered on by big sister :)
First time sitting in her big girl high chair!

Blowing raspberries
Ready to eat like a little birdie!
MMMMM squash!
The master teaching her student...fist demonstrate

Then do some hand over hand
And the piano lessons by Zoya paid off....Mila's first concert! Enjoy!
yum prunes and rice cereal!

I love anything on a spoon!

What do you mean I have something on my face? I thought I got it all....darn it.

so full of expression!

I think I have the hang of this spoon thing!
Check out that Buddha belly! How about those dimples in her thighs??? Oh how she is changing and growing!

Yay for KNEE FAT!!!!!!

smiley girl because she knows she is about to eat!

Eye lashes have sprouted!! They used to be non existant!

Oh one of my favorites....sweet sweet girl!

What are we waiting for mom? Feed me already!

If I smile will you feed me?

Beautiful, stunning, gorgeous!
With love, good food, and medical attention, our seed is sprouting....she's going to blossom into the most beautiful, unique, breath-taking flower! I love watching our flower grow!

  20. Thanks for giving us all our "Mila Fix!!!" Your girls are both so gorgeous!!

    I am your newer follower..pls follow bcd if you can.

  22. You have two very beautiful daughters! I'm so happy that Milan is feeling better & growing so well!

  23. I can't believe how big she's gotten in just a few weeks! These pictures are award winners for sure! She reminds me sooo much of my Conor at that age (he's now 8). Anyway, I wanted to say I wish I'd had a seat with those shoulder straps for our high chair; what a great idea for a child with low tone.

    Hugs to you all,
