Balance (Thy Meaning Is Twofold)

To balance out The Seriousness, I offer some Cuteness. Because I can. Why would I not share this?

She's wearing my shirt. Yes, it's a little big on her. For the time being anyway.

Aww...She looks like a cute knock off of Baby Grim Reaper!! ^_~

Be careful... this is how it starts. :) My sister and I were famous for taking my dad's old workshirts right out from under his nose. :)

Posted by: Laura at July 19, 2006 02:10 PM

Absolutely adorable :) I love the last one, its like she's saying "So, does it look fabulous on me?"

Posted by: christina at July 19, 2006 02:14 PM

Hmmm. Add a belt and some sensible pumps and...some of the length could be dealt with. Can't help you with the sleeves, though. Cute to the 10th power, however.

Sure starts early. The girls have cute little pajama sets.

What do they sleep in? You guessed it.

She's adorable.

How cute!! You know putting on one of your shirts and looking in the mirror will be her new favorite pastime. :)

Posted by: Kitty at July 19, 2006 02:37 PM

I wasn't thinking Baby Grim Reaper, but more a baby Hogwarts student.

Cute photos!

Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
who's the cutest
reaper of them all?

Posted by: shelley at July 19, 2006 03:25 PM

The Grim Reaper didn't even occur to me... I thought she looked like a super intelligent college grad.

I love playing dress-up! Can Raisin and I come over and play with Mia? Raisin's got some kick-ass dresses from my days on the bridesmaid circuit.

Mia's thoughts:

"Oh my God... I'm SHRINKING!"

Posted by: Tink at July 19, 2006 03:48 PM

You will look back on these shots in the years to come and marvel that she was so small and all yours for such a short time. Enjoy it!

Posted by: Maribeth at July 19, 2006 04:45 PM

That's an awful lot of cuteness. You could be serious for at least 3 more posts, based on that.

Also? I totally covet your mirror.

Posted by: Kate the Shrew at July 19, 2006 05:01 PM

Is she blowing you a kiss???? Awww... Looks kind of like me in any of Brandon's shirts, just NOWHERE near as cute.

I can always count on you and cute pictures of Mia to brighten my day!

Posted by: Oakley at July 19, 2006 05:56 PM

Just the sweetest thing ever!!

Posted by: chantel at July 19, 2006 05:56 PM

hand the kid a scythe... cause she is killing me with the cuteness!!

Posted by: stinkerbell at July 19, 2006 06:03 PM

I'm a model
You know what I mean?
And I do my little turn
On the catwalk...

She is just the cutest thing.

Posted by: E :) at July 19, 2006 06:03 PM

Very, very cute.

On the political stuff, I tend not to answer, because I don't ever feel well enough informed. And I spend to much time looking at blogs to inform myself on politics, which is probably not a good thing.

Plus the one thing my dad always said to me, is to avoid talking about politics and religion and you will live a happier, friendlyier life.

Posted by: Melissa at July 19, 2006 06:05 PM

That brings back memories. My Dad used to HATE when I took his T-shirts. They were just so comfy though. Don't ever get mad when she gets older and wears your shirts. It's a girl/Daddy bonding thing.

Posted by: Venting Mama at July 19, 2006 06:22 PM

i had to do a double take... because of where she's standing, it appears your daughter has grown a tail. were you aware of this development? might want to get that checked out. ;)

Posted by: colleen at July 19, 2006 06:33 PM

For some reason, the long shirt remind me of how Cousin It's hair used to drag the floor.

She's so cute...(unlike Cousin It)

Posted by: Emily at July 19, 2006 06:52 PM

Crazy cute.

Posted by: Elaine at July 19, 2006 06:57 PM

Just a warning - I'm 32 years old and live 5 hours away from my parents but I STILL steal my dad's shirts. I like that we can see you snapping the photo in the middle one and, yeah, I think she IS blowing you a kiss! Too cute!

Posted by: Beth in StL at July 19, 2006 06:57 PM

Awww, the first thing I thought of was she looks like shes auditioning for a role in the next Harry Potter movie! How adorable!

Posted by: Lisa at July 19, 2006 07:10 PM

Aaaawwwww! I'm dying of the cuteness.
At first glance I thought you got her some Nun-like/Amish outfit and I was like "Boy! They're strict with poor little beautiful Mia" :D

Posted by: Dee at July 19, 2006 08:00 PM

Yup, she's one kid you'd give the shirt off your back for just one of those loving glances.

The Bean makes a fashion statement, n'est-ce pas?

I know an older gentlemen that dressed his daughter (now an adult) in a one piece bathing suit every year on her birthday and took a photo. He made it all the way to 18 years old before she refused. But what a nice thing that she has now. Unfortunately that daughter was not me. It was a one piece modest black bathing suit.

Posted by: PoeticaL at July 19, 2006 08:46 PM

adorable!!! so many good posts preceded mine, but yes, daddy/daughter bonding! I have a cardigan I "borrowed" from my dad in 1980, that he wore as far back as 1959. Now MY daughter wears it.

Posted by: kristen at July 19, 2006 09:02 PM

Cuteness overload!! Man, you are going to have to beat the boys off with a stick.

Posted by: Bayou at July 19, 2006 09:24 PM

She looks dressed as a little young'un from a Dr. Suess book. Lovin' it!

Posted by: Dolly at July 19, 2006 09:38 PM

that is absolutely adorable.

Posted by: kristied at July 19, 2006 11:13 PM

Awwww. That is SO sweet!

Posted by: Lisa B at July 19, 2006 11:22 PM

Now THIS is something I'm comfortable commenting on! Adorable! I LOVE HER! :)

Posted by: haley-o at July 19, 2006 11:48 PM

ah... who's the slouch laying on the bed in pic 3? Damn those mirrors!

Posted by: Johnny "Secondhand" Smoke at July 20, 2006 01:28 AM

Is she blowing a kiss? She's *sooo* cute...

Posted by: Jenn at July 20, 2006 06:23 AM

Our daughter is 7 and still loves to sleep in Dad's t- shirts once in a while. So sweet!

Posted by: Jenn at July 20, 2006 09:37 AM

i could die from all that cuteness.
and i love the shot of you in the mirror. so nice.

Posted by: ali at July 20, 2006 10:11 AM

Adorable, as always!

Posted by: molly at July 20, 2006 10:26 AM

She's very Hogwarts with that shirt. :)

Posted by: Sparkle Pants at July 20, 2006 01:34 PM

What a sweet little thing.

Posted by: Isabel at July 20, 2006 01:39 PM

Aww, that brings back some memories. My son slept in his daddy's t-shirts from the ages of about 18 months until he was 5 or 6. We started it as a way to help him stay connected even though Dad worked out of town all week. It was cute, though Mia may even be cuter.
If she's not blowing you a kiss, she's thumbing her nose at you....lol
I love when they are old enough to really get into their relection in the mirror...and that mirror is much nicer than the closet door mirrors I have! Thanks for sharing!

Posted by: Jaycie at July 20, 2006 02:23 PM

Awesome series. Love the reflection in the mirror.

Posted by: Digital Traveler at July 20, 2006 10:04 PM

Is she blowing you a kiss? that is too cute.
