Peek a Boo and TP Towers

Lauren loves to hide so her new favorite
place is under a table, she will get her whole body
under there and hang out until
someone finds her. She also loves to stack
and today she emptied the TP from the
bag and made towers out of it, it's the
simple things in life that are the most fun
for her. and yes I know she's not wearing
pants but she is happiest in a t shirt &
diaper. :) Do you see me ?
Here I am

A Visit with Miss Mikayla and Family

We had the honor of having breakfast
today with Mikayla and her
family as they were passing
through town on vacation, We
all had a great visit and we are
hoping to see them again in
December. We are so thankful for
our Hubei family and what they
all mean to us.

She's Growing Up

I know they can't stay babies
forever but the older she gets
the more I wish she was still
this little, sweet baby. We went to
Target on Wednesday and decided
to stop for a snack at the cafe there
when she looked at me and said
" I went pee pee", I almost fell out of
my chair. she is ready to potty
train now so let the fun begin.
She has been in speech therapy
since November and Wednesday was
also her last session there so she is
changing in lots of ways but
no matter what she will always
be my baby. :) Baby Lauren at Radnor Lake 2006

A Surprise Visit

We had a surprise visit this weekend
from my cousins Heather and Kim and my aunt Donna from Florida. Heather was in Georgia
to tour Berry College and we
met up with them at Six Flags on Sunday.
We all had a great time together
and it was so nice seeing them
and spending the day with them.

Meeting Gill

Most of you may remember
last summer we got Lauren a betta
fish named Bruce. Well, Bruce went to
the big fish pond in the sky so
today Lauren and I went to petsmart
and got a new friend who we named Gill
after the scarred fish in Finding
Nemo, Gill has a scar on the back of his tail. :)
Daddy wanted a blue fish this time
since Bruce was red. Meeting Bruce, Summer 2006
Meeting Gill
The I got a cool, new blue fish grin. :)
I feel sorry for Gill already, he will have to be a strong fish

Walking Mollie

At least once or twice a week we all
take an evening walk around the
neighborhood, Lauren loves to walk our
dog Mollie, she thinks she is big stuff
when she has that leash in her hand.
A little fuzzy, sorry....
Whoa, Dog, Whoa
Flower Smelling Break
Uhm, maybe a split or maybe she is tangled in the leash. :)

The Fashion Queen

This is the outfit Lauren chose to go outside
in today, a NC t shirt, grey pants,
a green & white flower hat
and pink & silver heels.
Such a fashion trendsetter this girl is. Watch Out NY fashion idols.
I like the last picture of Jocelyn
sunning out in the yard, she looks
so peaceful.

Bye Ya'll......

Well, obviously Lauren thinks she
is a native Georgia Peach because
she now tells people bye ya'll
when people are leaving our house.
It's hilarious to hear this little
Chinese girl using southern
drawl, but in her defense her
favorite foods are fried okra and
sweet tea to drink. Oh, well
there are worse ways we could have
influenced her I guess. :)

3 Songs

Every Day at least 3 or 4 times
a day we have to sing 3 songs
with Lauren. ABC's, Eensy
Weensy Spider and Twinkle,
Twinkle Little Star. She will
ask anywhere at anytime
to sing those 3 songs. We went out for lunch as a family today
and Steve & I had to sing those same 3 songs
shamelessly at Olive Garden. :) Eensy, Weensy Spider
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
