Teething, Painting and Singing
A bit of an update in Mia's world is due! :-)
She's busy cutting her last molars. Number 17 and 18 are through, two more to go. She got both molars on the left side first, top and bottom - all along I've been waiting for the bottom right one to come through, and meanwhile the left top one came through, amidst fevers and niggles and bad sleeping patterns that I just couldn't understand. Now for the last two. Eish!!
Mia loves painting. It's a bit messy, so I'm reluctant to bring out the paints at every opportunity - but that doesn't bother her, she just paints with water, and if I don't give her water, she makes a plan: spits her juice out into her painting cup, and proceeds to paint with her juice! And not just paper... Her toys get painted too! Sticky, sticky, sticky... If Mia wants me to also "paint" with her, she tells me, "mommy, have some paintbrush!"
At bedtime, while I rub some cream on her, I sing a special song. "You are so beautiful" by Joe Cocker. I've done this for quite a while - long ago Mia already started singing the "meeeee" part along. Recently, however, she can sing the whole verse of "you are so beautiful to meeeeeee, oh can't you seeeeeeee!" And she goes so high and off tone and it's just the most special precious beautiful thing I've ever heard in my whole life.
