Mia was a musical little girl who loved to dance and sing. She was happy, sassy, and smart. She would babble and say hello, bye-bye, nanu-nanu, NO!, and uh-oh, usually to her dog, Bella, as she fed her off her high chair tray! Mia and Bella were good friends who enjoyed playing together. Mia also loved playing with her day care friends who called her Mi-Ha-Ha!
Our beautiful Mia was a happy, joyful delight. She was loving and was loved by all. Affectionate, playful, adventurous, and always in motion. From her family to Mia: Nanu, Nanu.
