No Nap Mommy

This little girl begs me not put her down for a nap anymore. She informs me "I'm big now, I don't cry" so I have been letting her stay up.

No nap today, until she fell asleep sitting up on the couch watching Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs cartoon at dinner time!!. In my opinion, she still needs a nap most days

Have a good one sweetie!

China Town?

Jadyn has taken an interest in the big tub of Lego's we have lately.

She usually builds a tall tower, one block of the same size stacked about 25 high.

But today she made a "house"

She called for me to come see.
My first thought was that looks alot like the buildings we saw while in China.
It must come natural!

I love your house Jadyn!

Happy 4th Birthday Princess!

On our way to her Princess Party.

we started the party off with some cheese pizza!

Meet Princess Jadyn & Princess Maylynn

After much pushing to eat just one more bite of pizza, the girls were off to pick out the Princess gown that was just right. Each of the 4 girls picked one very quickly.

They looked beautiful!
Princess Ava!

Princess Aleah!

Soon they were off to get their hair done.

Polish time!

Jadyn chose purple and yellow polish with glitter on top

she had such a good time

Next they were off to make-up

The long awaited song.........

Happy Birthday big girl!

Her dream come true

she said "I'm a real Princess Mommy"

yes you are sweetie!

Jadyn asked me to take her picture today

but as you can tell, she lost interest

rather fast

Until I asked her "how old are you going to be in 3 days?"

she quickly reminded me, "you already know how many Mom"

"I'm going to be 4!"

Tomorrow is her party, it happens to be planned for the same evening that we have Jeron's school conference and Garrison's first hockey game in the State tournament.
It will be a busy fun evening!

Today happens to be the 3rd of the Month.....

It's a special day to me each month, as I count back in my head exactly how many months ago we met Jadyn. Today marks 19 months!

I have been working on a book for her, compiling all of her baby pictures in a keepsake. I love to look at these pictures. She was just so adorable and they make me so thankful that she has a family and no longer lives in the orphanage. I know she was loved there, but not like she is loved now!

she is aprox. 10 months old here.

The photo below was taken with the camera we sent to her in a care package, just a couple weeks before we met her.

she was so tiny!

another one of my favorites, she is looking at the photo album we sent her.

Notice all the bracelets she has on? one of them was on her ankle when we got her.
I have put it away for when she is older.

Sweet baby, she still loves her snacks!
