This month Jared and Mia started playing indoor soccer. I had no idea that I would love watching them play as much as I do. They have games two times a week and I really look forward to the time that I get to spend with them, watching them do something they enjoy and just listening to them when they are done.

I love the way they achieve something, anything, and then look over at me to make sure that I was watching them and noticed what they did. I only wish I had put them in sooner.

Mia lost her first tooth today. She has been so excited to have a loose tooth, but very nervous about it coming out. She was really hoping to have it out on her birthday, 5 days ago, but it never happened. This morning while she was eating, she bit down on a piece of cereal and her tooth came out with it when she stopped biting. She didn't even know that it came out. She tried to chew her cereal and it was really hard, so she checked to see what it was. She was so excited when she saw it was her tooth. She couldn't stop talking about it. She showed everyone that said, "Hi" to her at church today and even some that didn't.

I am not thrilled with the picture I got, but these days, I just have to be happy that she will let me take any photos of her at all.
