Mia loves to be laugh and play. She has begun exploring the house and has all but forgotten her pacifier and blanket during the day. She just doesn't have time to keep up with those with all the moving and talking she is doing.
The two things that Mia loves most in the world are music and eating. Even better music while eating. She eats everything and I mean everything. And she has such a great time doing it.
She has the best crinkle face and laugh and we are trying to get a picture of it. But here is a close shot. Not a great pic but the subject makes up for it.
Mia loves to take a bath in her ducky tub. She plays with the water and laughs and screams and only gets mad if you take her out too soon.
She has already had a play date with her friend Rylan, who came home from Korea the week before she did. In fact, we are headed to another friend's house tonight and Rylan and her Mommy & Daddy will be there too for more fun.
Mia has also had two play dates with her friend Brandon. He came over a week ago and brought Mia a Mickey Mouse, smart boy to bring a gift. Brandon's Mommy & Grandma came too. Brandon's family are family to us too. We are so lucky to have the best neighbors.
We are still working to get Mia's sleep straightened out. She is doing better every day with the time change. She loves her crib. Asks to go in it.
I have so much to say and no time to type as we are off to see Rylan at Alex's Mommy & Daddy's house. Alex isn't home just yet but we know they will be good friends as soon as he is. I will blog more with extra pictures soon but here is some random cuteness. There is lots of fun stuff coming up with Christmas and Gran and Grandpa coming back and getting to meet the rest of the family too.

That's right Mia is coming home. Today Sam and I got the call we have waited years to get. The tickets are booked, the hotel is reserved, and we are ready.
We are flying Korean Air from Atlanta to Seoul on Sunday, December 4th. We get to Korea on Monday, December 5th. We will be staying at the Millennium Hilton. We are waiting to hear when we get to pick Mia up but we have asked for that to happen on Wednesday. We are then flying home on Thursday, December 8th. We leave Korea in the evening so hopefully Mia will sleep. Then at 6:40 p.m., Thursday, December 8th we land in Atlanta as a family of 3.
I will update with more details as we have them.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Here is a quick update on Mia. She went in for her latest Well Baby Check (WBC) on Halloween. We didn't get a new picture this time because we got a picture that was taken on Mia's birthday. So let's start with the picture.
She happened to be at the office that day for the agency birthday party and a package from us was there. You can probably guess that I got her the Mickey and Sam got her the other toy. This picture was such a surprise for us.
So now let's talk about her WBC. On October 31, Mia weighted 19.2 pounds, same as last month, and she is now 28.6 inches tall. She has 7 teeth now, 4 on top and 3 on the bottom. Mia also like to scribble.
Here are the words she is saying now, Mommy, Daddy, Eat, Cookie, Water, and she asks to be carried. I'm giving you the English, of course she is saying these all in Korean.
She seems to be doing great. We can't wait to have her home.
So here is how this will work. I will update a few times between now and when we leave and then we will update from Korea. Count on this as your place to find out the latest news. To the right you will see our process. I know it is long and believe it or not there are things that aren't listed. Lots of paperwork that isn't listed.
