My sweet West Texas parents wanted us to name our first child, whether boy or girl Dakota...b/c they're my sweet West Texas parents. When I told them I wouldn't honor those wishes, they've been finding all sorts of ways to put a Dakota in the family. My dad is really good at wood working, and I've been bugging him to make Miss Mia something special. He came up with her a rocking horse...this ridiculously cute rocking horse..named, of course, Dakota! Dakota is a little big for Miss Mia to climb onto by herself, but she loves putting her babies on and making them go "weee!"
