August Updates

We finally got a smile, and a beautiful one at that!!!! Ok... here's our chunky monkey's charts--- Her last chart was noted on the 8/18, and she will be 7 months on Sept. 5th, which I'm having a hard time believing it will be Sept. 1st on Tuesday!!! On 8/18 she weighted 18.5 lbs, 26.5 inches, and some of the growth status for the past 6 weeks are.... babbles, localizes direction of sound, initiates vocalization with adults (I love that one), her & Beatrice (english springer) will get along very well, and verbalizes for attention... and like I said, her and Beatrice will truly get along well... Oh, there will be plenty of future videos of those two together! She has been eating rice noodle, mashed fruit, rice porridge, and of course 150cc of milk! Good little eater, mommy likes that:)

We keep praying for that phone call to travel any day now, and it's going to be unbelievable day on that special day! We can't wait!!!!! Literally, we can't wait!

I kind came up with this "5th picture rule" on the Taiwan family blogs that I followed in the past months that have been waiting to travel/ruling news. I've noticed (most of the families) when a family has received that 5th picture/update, they will receive final ruling/travel news shortly after.

GUESS what??? We received our 5th picture of Ellie!!!! Come on travel news!!!

Parents to be in Training....

We had so much fun baby sitting the "Luke Man" this morning! Tara is a very good friend of mine, and Luke is her little man. He is such a joy, and the sweetest little thing! Ok....What's up with the I can't go to bathroom, brush my teeth, take a shower, and EAT? I'm just kidding:)) I'm so expecting those things to be delayed in my near future, and we did enjoyed our pre-run this morning! I know things will come together, and I will treasure those moments with her:)

Oh by the way... this waiting stinks!!! No news to share:((
