As you may or may not know, we have chosen not to give our girls a middle name. I don't have a middle name and I have never really missed having one. When we named Marinn, it just seemed like there was something missing. As Bryan and I discussed it (literally the night before the blessing), he mentioned that he feels like she should have a middle name. It's crazy how the name Sophia popped into my head, for no other reason than I just really liked the name. We both felt that it was the right fit. So, as Bryan gave her a name and a blessing, he gave her the name Marinn Sophia Rosenvall. That is the first time either of our families had heard the name and after the blessing, Bryan's dad told us that Bryan has a great, great, great grandmother named Sophia. Well, there you have it.
I love the tradition of our girls all wearing the same blessing dress. In fact, all of my nieces on my side of the family have worn this dress. P.S. I LOVE my family

The day has come that we have all been anxiously awaiting....The first day of Kindergarten. Mia has been looking forward to this day for a LONG time. She had such a great experience in preschool and had such an amazing teacher, Miss Michelle (who we already miss), who prepared and pepped her students up for kindergarten. I'm so excited to have Mia in school. I don't love the fact that she is growing up so fast, though. She has such an enthusiasm for learning and it's been so fun to see how passionate she is about school.
Today, I got to go with Mia to kindergarten orientation and got to meet her teacher, Mrs. Rollins, see her new classroom and also meet her classmates. I can already tell that it's going to be a fun year.

One of Mia's favorite books is Silverlicious and it's about how Pinkalicious loses a tooth, not just any tooth - but her sweet tooth! Suddenly candy no longer tastes sweet! With her pinkatastic pen, Pinkalicious writes a note to the Tooth Fairy and tucks it under her pillow... only to hear from Cupid, the Easter Bunny, and a Christmas elf instead. It is not until the Tooth Fairy finally responds—and works some magic—that Pinkalicious discovers where sweetness really comes from. Anyway, ever since she got this book, she has been obsessed with losing a tooth. On many occasions, she will ask me to feel one of her teeth and ask if it's wiggly yet.
While we were in Utah, she bit into an apple and noticed that one of her bottom teeth was loose. She kept wiggling it and wiggling it and it finally came out while we were camping. She decided to wait until she got home to put it under her pillow, just to be sure that the she wouldn't miss the Tooth Fairy. Well, that Tooth Fairy never disappoints and put under her pillow $1 and 3 silver coins (quarters) as requested. Score!!
