~ HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY, MIA HOPE ~
















Good morning birthday girl!















Anthony & Eddie sing "happy birthday"




















While daddy gets bagels, Mia grabs her trusty step stool...















She loves to put her pony tail ties in cups...





















Concentration...




















All gussied-up for her big day!
















Pretty girl!
















My little sweetheart!















Daddy has a surprise for his girl!
















"Oh daddy, you are the best!"















Mia just loves balloons!















Birthday kisses from daddy...


Happy Birthday to our precious girl! I've been so excited for this day to come, yet sentimental too. We didn't have much "baby" time with Mia and now she is a 2 year old! I have been wondering about her 1st birthday and if anyone was able to acknowledge it... I know there are worse things in the world; however these celebrations are such important milestones; and I wanted today, this birthday to be filled with smiles, giggles and tons of kisses and hugs (more than usual ~ I'm a kissy, huggy kind of girl!)
Below, I scanned a picture of Mia from last February...taken right after her birthday ~ what a miracle to see these pictures and then to look at her now. I feel as though she is looking for us, and baby-girl we have found each other!



















So far, it is 12 o'clock noon and I've taken a ton of pictures! Daddy went out to get Miss Mia her favorite breakfast...bagels! We've played and dressed up and daddy brought his girl some balloons. It's been a great morning and soon it will be naptime. During that time we will be preparing for our Chinese New Year celebration over at Meaghan Grace's house; where we will all (try) to make a chinese dish and end our celebration with a birthday cake for our girl!

Stay tuned...you know there will lots more pictures to post :)
