For those friends and family who no longer see Mila on a regular basis, here are some fun videos and pics of the little one. She has lots of cousins and so she gets lots of practice at singing "Happy Birthday".
She still loves to go to the library and read books.
She will say prayers and is great about prompting me to pray randomly throughout the day. She says prayers by reciting back the last one or two words of the phrase we say to her. However, this week she knelt down and said her own prayer by saying "Father, Jesus, Amen." I'd say she got the main phrases, wouldn't you? ("Dear Heavenly Father....in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.")
She loves nursery to the point that we find ourselves having to barricade her in our pew during sacrament meeting until the appropriate time to go to nursery.
If you ask her to name something she will name it "Gink" after the cat in a book series I have about a little witch called Dorrie who has a black cat named Gink.
I thank my Heavenly Father quite often for sending Mila to be my first kiddo. We really lucked out on receiving a very obedient, helpful child. She never protests when I ask her to do something for me, but instead runs to do it (the girl never walks). She also reasons really well with us. For example, if she is standing up in her high chair asking to be "All done" but still has food on her plate, I can often times ask her to eat two more bites if she wants to get out of her chair and she'll do it. Something I've really been grateful for lately though is how cuddly she is. She loves to just snuggle with me during the day which has brought me so much comfort when I'm feeling miserable. I get sad at times thinking that in a few short months we won't have this one on one time anymore. So I sure am trying to soak it all up right now.
