We are feeling better

Malia is much better. For the past 4 days she has been really hanging on her daddy. Which I think is great. I have not been feeling well so I slept a lot this past weekend. Gary played Mr. Mom and did an awesome job, and I think that Malia feels a lot closer to him because of it. She now knows that BaBa can take care of her needs just as well as mama can. Here they are playing with one of Malia's baby strollers.

Sick again, Yuk !

Well she is sick again. This is the 2nd time in 1 month. She had pink eye and an upper sinus infection 2 weeks ago and now she has strep throat. She has been listless and running a fever that averages 103. I think she is feeling a little bit better today but you can tell she is still hurting. Actually,right now everyone in the house but me (knock on wood) is sick and on antibiotics. Although I can feel a slight tingle in my throat today, so I'm sure its coming.

Here she fell asleep on the couch about an hour after her 2 hour nap.

I got a hair cut !

I got tired of seeing hair in Malia's eyes, so we got bangs cut into her hair.

I really didn't want to do it, I want to let her hair grow out, have it all one length and long. But her hair is so thin, I cant get anything to stay in, it just slides right out.

Good News

The little girl I fell in love with on Small Worlds list has found a family !! Yea !
I was of course heartbroken when we could not adopt her, but was praying that she would find another family soon. I'm overjoyed at this news. Perhaps someday we will go back to China. It's just not in the cards right now.........

New Shoes

Malia got two new pairs of shoes today. She got two pair of crocks. This girl LOVES shoes, Ive never seen a child this into shoes. lol. She is such a poser too. Every time I would snap a picture, she would run up to look at the picture then run back to where she was and sit and pose again. She even grabbed Elmo to pose with her. Dylan is home from school again this week for spring break. Malia follows him everywhere. If he gets up off the couch, she gets up and is right behind him. My little office worker, I'm training her a little early. lol I bought the new version of photoshop and have been messing around with it a bit. I thought this was kind of cool. I was looking through some older pictures I have of Malia and found this one. I cant get over how "young" she looks in this picture. It was taken only 7 months ago.

Potty Time !

Well not really, but she is obsessed with sitting on it. She doesn't do anything yet but she thinks she is big stuff when she sits on the potty.
It was so nice out the other day, we just had to go outside and take some pictures. This is the first time I tried the tripod and timer on my new camera.
