Hair Bows & China's Orphan's

As most of you know from just looking at pictures of Jadyn I love hair bows, she has a few LOT.
I wanted to tell my fellow adoptive Mom's and everyone else who loves bows about a wonderful web site. The owner gives 100% of her bow profits to 'New Day Foster Home' in China when you order an "adoption" bow(s). Deals like this will always get my business, plus they are just plain adorable! Yes, you will soon see Jadyn sporting one of these and possibly one with her name embroidered on it.

You can view all the adorable bows she makes by clicking on the link to the right.

How cute is this!

During our wait for Jadyn, Ames & I were interested in adopting a little girl who lives at New Day Foster Home in Beijing. Unfortunately China does not allow you to "hand pick" a child. So I read their blog regularly to see how she is doing. She is an adorable heart baby, who I hope gets to meet her new parents very soon! Hint..thats her little face in the "N" of the New Day Foster Home link.

What is Jadyn Up to?

Giving herself a black eye on the coffee table. This shiner changes daily, the color deepens and seems to spread further under her eye! Boy does Mommy wish this thing would go away! Ouch....

She is finally well from her mild case of pneumonia, she was sick for about 10 days, 7 of those were pretty rough on her. Were not sure if she had the Swine flu or some other flu.

See what she learned when she was sick- how to clean out her dolls nose!

She is talking so much, she can put 4-5 word sentences together, it just shocks us how fast she has picked up our language. It is rare that she speaks Mandarin now. She will still use Mandarin names, like BooBoo for baby and YaYa for Grandpa, she calls her brother's GuGu. But other than that, she is an English speaking toddler.
One more thing....

She is busy "working on" potty training too!

It's been a while since I have posted, so I figured I had better get one done!

This is week 2 that I have been home with a sick child, Jeron was sick all last week and now Jadyn has it.
Not sure what it is, but it lasts a full week. Both kids have been to the doctor and are/were on medication.

Here's Jadyn checking to see if she still has a fever!

She was hit hard by this bug, it settled into her lungs and she had the start of pneumonia. Her Doctor caught it quickly and she is slowly getting better. Her nails and lips have been blue due to her congestion.

and yet another fever check!
Once she is big enough to have the second part of her heart surgery the low oxygen levels will go away. She is normally very pink now, so this had us a little worried, especially when our oxygen sat. monitor was reading lower levels than before her first heart repair.

She'll still give you a smile even though she doesn't feel well!

I'm hoping we will all be well soon!
