Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and other little stories :-)
Mia took me totally by surprise last week, by singing the entire Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to me! It's just the cutest thing I have heard in my life. Not all the pronunciation exactly, but you can hear exactly what she's singing. Officially her first nursery rhyme that she can sing - bless.
I'm doing much, much better this week, after the slump I hit last week. The world is filled with rainbows and butterflies once again. ;-)
We had a great weekend filled with family and friends, and yesterday we had a lil family photoshoot at our house, where Mia baked and decorated cookies. Can't wait to see the pics!
I've started a personal challenge. It's 40 days until our holiday to Pine Lake, and it's less than 3 months to my 30th birthday. I need something to boost my weight loss mission - and a personal challenge sounded like just the solution. I started a separate blog to track the 40-day journey. http://jessv40days.blogspot.com/ Feeling very motivated and inspired!
Last week I had a glass of wine, which I put down on the table at dinner time - and didn't notice Mia climbing up on a chair while I went back to the kitchen to fetch our food. She pulled the tablecloth towards her, knocking my glass of wine over and spilling everything. As Wyn and I walked towards her, she looked at us and said "Mia drink alles!" How we laughed - she figured that before she can get reprimanded for messing, she'll rather 'admit' to drinking everything. I got a fright, but realised the wine glass was far away from her - it definitely all spilled.
I need to work out my Christmas present budget... Excited for the festive season that's literally just around the corner!
