Holy Cow It's Been a While!!!!!!

Wow I'm behind!! Adriana is doing great!! She just celebrated her 3rd birthday,and will be starting speech this week. She has a lot of work to do in that area, she just started speaking in sentences over Christmas break. Once she started it hasn't stopped.

Big brother and sister are doing great as well, Scott's in the management program at MickyD's and Brandi just got her drivers permit. GOD HELP US ALL!!!!!!! Take extra caution when your on the roads in the Washington area!! Just kidding, she does really good. I just like to tease her.

Until next time everyone here's a recent pick of our little doll to tide you over.

Also, for those of you that don't know, I have started taking photos. You can visit that blog at

It's coming up on a year!!!!!

Little Miss Adriana will be with us for a year on the 26th of this month!!!! I can't believe it's been a year already. So much has happened it will take all day to post, so I will have to summarize. Brent is now a instructor at Cat, I started a photography hobby/career, haven't decided that yet, Scott got a job at McDonalds, works all the time, 40 hours this week. We hardly see him. Brandi well she wants to get a job but she is only 15 (as of August 2nd). She mostly hangs out with friends and tries to stay out of trouble..............:)!!!! Adriana talks NONSTOP, half of it we don't understand, but she gets her point across. She loves school (daycare). She is now in a class with kids her on age and boy she has picked up on alot of things. Good and Bad. I noticed a little bit more Independence, she wants to do alot of things on her own. Potty training is going well, we still have to ask her if she needs to go, she won't just go on her own. Going number 2 really scares her for some reason, so that's been a challenge.

We are so blessed, never been happier in or lives. Thank You God for this Wonderful Life!!!!!!

Hi Everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Photographer requested they have a watermark.

Yes, Yes, it's been awhile!!!! I forgot how it was having a toddler. Whewwwwwwwwwww I'm tired!!!! She keeps me on my toes. I work pretty much full time now and Adriana loves day care, she has learned so much. Not the shy little girl that we brought back from China. She still has her shy mommy only moments but for the most part it's Hi to everyone.

We repeat everything,or at least try. Still we can hardly understand her unless you told her what to say. Hi, Momma, Papa, Meow, Ah Oh, Boo Boo(Scott) Sissy(Brandi) are what she says most. She has said No!! before.

I will try to post more often It's only been since Halloween!!!! So now that warm weather is here I should have some fun pictures to post. Here are some so far. I hope these come in right, If not I guess you will see the pics before you read the post.


That reminds me Adriana will be on here blog for a little beauty contest, go there and vote for or Little China Doll!!! tell everyone you know so Adriana can be a model for a day!!!

Til next time think warm weather thoughts, maybe it will stay nice out.

Pumpkin Patch in Chicago

We caged the monkey

Our extended Family

Our Babies

Adriana has been making such good progress!!! She is truly a Momma's girl!!! Daycare is getting better for her, still cries when I leave but calms and plays in just a few minutes after I leave. The teachers really baby her.

We found out that Adriana will not need any further surgery on her lip or nose. They will look at it again when permanent start to come. Her heart is a different story. She will have open heart surgery in the spring. It all depends on how much weight she puts on in the next few months.

We had a lot of fun at the Lifelink fall get together. We also had a great visit with or extended families (our travel buddies). All the girls changed so much.

Adriana was a Monkey for Halloween, she didn't quite get the whole thing. She liked the decorations, but not smoke machines. One house we went to had the porched decorated so nice so I wanted a picture. I sat her on the step, took a step back, told Brent take the picture quick!!!! Then the smoke machine went off, and Adriana flipped out. She took a nose dive right off the step. Luckily the monkey hood came down over her face and cushioned the fall. She didn't even get a scratch. We were done after that.

Until next time Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving Everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!
