We had a fabulous time visiting Richie's sister Patrice and her family in Aliso Viejo, California for spring break last week. They are so fun to be around! Some highlights were hearing middle school stories from 12-year old Joshua, cuddling with 9-year old Amanda while watching American Idol, witnessing 5-year old Aaron's amazing math skills, visiting our newest, beautiful, 4-month old niece Camille, listening to Matt, Joshua, and Aaron yell at the ref's through the tv during the UCLA-VCU basketball game, chatting with Patrice, going to the beach with Patrice, Aaron, and Camille, and visiting the San Diego Zoo.
Mylie did a couple interesting things at the Miller's that she's never done at home. She puked an enormous amount of, well, puke all over their bedroom carpet. Then she pooped and it leaked all over their sheets. Last she peed on their bedroom carpet. There's something kind of okay with doing all of that at your own home, but to be in somebody else's home and have that happen just stinks! Literally!
Mylie absolutely loved the sand at the beach. She kept picking it up and letting it trickle through her fingers--she couldn't get enough of it! She didn't care too much about the zoo, but Richie and I really enjoyed it. Not only are the animals cool, but the scenery is breathtaking!
While in Cali, Mylie's two bottom teeth finally broke through. Richie made the discovery. We had no clue she was teething because she wasn't fussy at all. Why is it so exciting to me that she is getting her first teeth? She's been crawling like crazy and pulling herself up along everything. She pulls everything off our shelves now. I don't even care though, I just think it's completely adorable. I say her name and she turns her head and looks at me with an enormous grin and squealing giggle. She understands a few words now. Dada, Mama, light, book, nose, come on or come here (meaning I'm going to pick her up). I can't get enough of my girl!
