Gratituesday: Milestones

As I mentioned last week, I'm very thankful to be able to stay home with Mira. I've been able to witness most, if not all, of her "firsts". The past 16 months have been some of the greatest months of my life, and it really keeps getting more fun! I was going to do a post about some of the new things Mira's been saying and doing, so what better day then on "Gratituesday"!

Yesterday, she tried to run for the first time. It was so funny, and of course, I didn't have my camera. Up to this point, she would just put her hands in the air and pick her feet up higher off the floor, but not move any faster. This time she was moving fast, but it only lasted a couple steps before she stopped. I think she shocked herself!

Her "lovey" is a little blanket that we are constantly loosing/looking for. She now points it out for me and says, "there it is!" I think that might be it's new name!




She likes to play "This Little Piggy" and pulls of her socks so we can play. We just taught her what sound a piggy makes, which sounds like someone clearing their throat! She's always saying socks and shoes, as she carries everyone's shoes around the house.

She loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Mommy USED to love it too, until recently when Mira wasn't feeling well and was up most of the night. The only thing that calmed her down was watching the Mouse, and dancing to the Hotdog Song til the weeeeee hours of the morning. I'm trying to catch her singing on video, but of course, that's not happening either! Ha! Maybe I'll update later after I catch it.

*UPDATE* After several attempts and one very distracted toddler, I give you Mira's singing debut!

She usually waves and says, "Eye, Eye" (Bye, Bye) but you get the point!

We have a rocking horse that she likes to ride, and she just figured out how to get on it by herself. We're still working on the dismount! We're trying to teach her to say, "Yeehaw, ride'em cowgirl!". As of now, it comes out, "Aaahhhhh ha"! With the same inflection in her voice, every time. I finally caught this:
