Birthday countdown!

Jadyn and I have been planning her party, she is so excited she can hardly stand it. Everyday, several times a day she asks "Is tomorrow my birthday", this may teach me a lesson to not say anything in the future until it's much closer. But then it would cut down on her excitement, so I'm sure nothing will change next year!

She wants a Princess party this year. I booked her party at a children's salon, we chose the Royal princess party. They do dress up time, glitter polish manicures and Princess up-do's.
Just her thing!

We went shopping yesterday and got a few party favors to send home with her little friends. She spotted this crown, I think she will wear it until her party!

She even has a birthday gift list that she shared with Daddy & I, it hasn't changed in days. We will be shopping for an Olivia doll, a Tinkerbell dress with shoes and Tinkerbell toys.

How does one become American-ized so quickly?

Thank you Auntie for the paper dolls, I love them!

A friend of mine sent me a link to a web site for early reading.
It starts with kindergarten level 1. Jadyn loves to learn so I thought I would try it with her, it's only been a couple days and she is already on level 2.
It's so fun to watch her learn. She's having as much fun learning as I am teaching her!

Jadyn was in no mood for a picture today, even in her pretty Chinese coat.

Ballet Class

Jadyn started class at a new dance studio today. She had a great time. The class is for 3 year olds only, they were all so cute. She was happy and so was Mom, as I could stand and watch the entire class through glass.


Maybe it should be one way glass!

They all got a Princess wand and ran around dancing.
this was her favorite part.

18 months home!

I can hardly believe it's already been 18 months, where does time go?
Our girl has gone from a tiny, skinny, sick little girl to this!

I would have to describe her as:


Smart, she loves to learn

silly, she loves to laugh and make you laugh

affectionate, always ready to give and get a hug and kiss

Great at entertaining herself. Introducing Barbie and Mulan

I can't leave out, Healthy!!
We love you so much Jadyn.
