Wow, only a month has gone by and oh the updates! I've decided to give each update a title and paragraph so choose which you care to be updated on :)
July 24th: Eric and I made a last minute decision to go home for the 24th of July. Grandma said she was having Mia withdrawals and we hadn't been home in a little while. Once again, I managed to not take my camera out once and snap any pictures, but the trip was nice nonetheless. The boys went biking and fishing and mom and I just relaxed, did a little shopping at the local craft store, and managed to get a chick flick in there as well. We also got to visit with friends and of course do what my family is known for, which is eat really good food.
Birthday: I got to be spoiled on my birthday by my amazing husband. He surprised me by getting me a new laptop, which has been much needed. Mia also gave me a great present by being on her best behavior all day :) She actually ended up sleeping pretty much all afternoon and evening and still went to bed on time and had a good night. We also went to dinner with my siblings and their spouses which is always fun to spend time with them.
Family and Seven Peaks: At the end of the month Eric's Aunt, Uncle and niece came to stay with us again. They are so fun and we love when they come out to visit! Friday night we staying home and watched a movie. Saturday we spent at Seven Peaks. Eric's grandparents also came out for the day to go to Seven Peaks as well. This time we decided to let Mia have a go in the water and she loved it!
Cousins! Sophia and Mia are so cute together. Mia will always smile when Sophia comes up to talk to her.
Sophia in her cute little swimming suit. She loved the water as well. She would slash and slash and even when it got her in the face she just would laugh and keep going. What a cutie!
SHA Designs and Art's in the Park: I was also really busy this month as Sara, Annelise and I got ready to start our craft business and our booth at Art's in the Park in Ely. That's right we now have an online business called Sha Designs! Check out our blog! We plan to continue updating it with tutorials, crafting tips and new items each month that we are adding to our store to sell. To kick off our business we had a booth at Art's in the Park, which is an annual fair that Ely holds each summer. We were a little nervous to see how it would go, but our booth was a success! Our fastest selling items were our windows. Our husbands and my mom were so supportive and wonderful to watch our kids for us while we did the fair!
Grandma with her cute grand-babies!
Mia: Mia deserves a whole paragraph full of updates, she is growing so fast!! She is now 3 1/2 months! Her newest thing is screaming. She screams when she is happy, bored, sad, mad, laughing...pretty much for every emotion. She is definitely a girl in that sense! She also has started to play with toys now and can roll over from her back to her stomach! Mia also loves boys! She will give her biggest smiles to them without them even really having to work for it. We better watch out or Eric will be constantly chasing the boys away lol. I still love being able to be with her during the days and will be sad when I have to go back to school in a couple of weeks.
Mia has discovered her hands and feet so we got her these toys that go on them and she loves to look at them.
She will also try to eat anything she can get her month on!
Oh I almost forgot to mention that Eric and I also had our 2 year anniversary! It'a s crazy that's it been two years already! I've loved every minute of it so far and am excited to see what the next 50+ years have in store for us! Sadly, our anniversary was during the fair so we didn't really get so celebrate it, but this weekend Mom and Dad are coming in to watch Mia while we have a weekend get-away! I'm so excited!
