A little sweetness for the day, in photos

I am SO behind on the blog lately and so many fun things have happened lately that I really want to post about. I've been struggling with getting taxes done with salaries and houses in more than one state as well as a horribly non-profitable rental of my old home as well as trying to itemize our bazillion dollar expenditures on medical bills this last year.  I severely dislike, to the nth degree, taxes. I have also been struggling with other things as well as a baby who is now a crawler and into EVERYTHING.  I'm just tired, and tired of being tired.  Bah.

Last night Mia went down to bed at 8:30 pm, woke up at 10:30 pm (just as I was falling asleep) and took forever to get back down, and then again at 5 am before waking up for the day at 8 am.  This is NOT commom for my little one who usually sleeps wonderfully through the night.  I figured either her ear infection was coming back or she was teething.  I was right.  Today her second front tooth on the top came through.  It's on the cleft section of her gumline and her other one that came in there was a little rougher than normal as well.  We now officially have 4 teeth - 2 middle ones on top and 2 middle ones on bottom.  Luckily, it doesn't look as "rodent-y" as it sounds.  lol  Way to celebrate turning 9 months old Mia!

However, even with all the ups and downs of motherhood and being a stay-at-home mom, my little Mia still makes me smile every day.  Today I peeked in on her during her morning nap and just had to grab some quick photos on my cell phone.  I sent them to my family, and my sister Tiff said something to the effect of, "These need to go on the blog."  I agree.  :)

I guess it was a little too bright in her room for nap time... my little cutie-patootie problem solver made do.  :)

As I was feverishly working on taxes the other day, I noticed that Mia was being suspiciously quiet as she was playing down by my feet. I scooped her up only to find my mortgage payment booklet being happily munched on.

Guess that's Mia's version of helping me with taxes. lol

Man I love this little munchkin!
