HaPPy 3rd BirthDaY MiaH!!!

Today is my little Miah's 3rd birthday! We're home now, but we were in Arkansas with Austin's mom today and had a small celebration for the special day. Regina, Austin's mom, made a brownie cake for Miah with chocolate frosting..mmmmm. Miah got to decorate the cake with sprinkles.

Then Kora lit the candles on the cake.

Then we all sang Happy Birthday and Miah got shy and covered his face! That was a surprise, he usually LOVES to have the entire room's attention!

Miah blew out all three of the candles, but from the looks of this picture,
I see Austin helping too!

Then he licked the candles...and stuck them back in the cake.

If you ask Miah how old he is today, he'll hold up the right amount of fingers, but he always gives a different answer. His favorite ages to say are, 16, 7, 2 and 60.
Personally, I'm a big fan of 3, 6 and 13.

The heathens ate their chocolate brownie cake just MINUTES before loading in the car for a nice long 4 hour trip home....aww...thank GOODNESS for the DVD player :)

Here's a small tribute to the kid of the day, some of my favorite moments and pictures we have:
This was one of the first pictures we EVER saw of him before meeting him.

Here's me and Miah on adoption day just after we left the courthouse.

Here's Miah's first night with us. He used to suck on that blanket while he slept.

His first Summer of swimming with us!

Laying out like mom.

Miah at the beach.

His first Halloween with us.

His cage when he's naughty.

This is Miah trying to remove his eyeball. He's actually really good at it.

This is Miah with an Asian face.

And of course, stained koolaid lips that are OH SO kissable!
Happy Birthday Miah!!!
We love you!

He is too cute for words, he is perfect! Seriously, everytime I see Miah pictures, I think about adopting, you make it look so easy for a child to blend right in with the family. It's like he was meant to be a Lowe all along, and he is right where he was destined to be. You inspire me Jess! You rock motherhood!
