15 Years Ago

I married my best friend.

Today I feel blessed to still call him my best friend and partner in life.  He is a great daddy, loves his babies .  I could not ask for a better husband, I still get excited to see him when he gets home from work (and no not just because I have been home with 3 kids all day)

Love you Pete. . . even more than 15 years ago

My Boys

Zach is off to Boy Scout camp for an ENTIRE WEEK.  This is a l-o-n-g time for this momma, we are on day 3 and I already miss him.

My littlest man is spending a few days with Grandma.  Sheesh my house is a bit quiet.

Tomorrow Naomi and I are on a mission to find the perfect flower girl dress for her.  Anyone have any ideas???  It needs to be white or a super pale pink, size 3T or 4T and CUTE.

3 Years Ago

On August 13th 2008 we saw this sweet face for the very first time.  I knew she was ours.  The day I started falling in love with my Rao Chu Yu

Thank you to my friend Myriam for finding this sweet, fiesty, strong willed, beautiful daughter for us.

My Brave Girl

It was a long day at Seattle Children's Hospital, so happy we did not have stay the night and so grateful that we have such an amazing hospital in our area.

waiting before the procedure . . . lookin CUTE!

Coloring with our friend Ali - she joined us because daddy could not get the day off of work.

getting all gowned up, she was a brave girl

thinking the red socks were pretty cool.

Naomi woke up very, very, very SAD from the procedure.  Hospital protocol is no parents until the child is out of recovery (about an hour after)  Well they called me back because Naomi was so upset.  I could not get to her fast enough.  Oh my was my heart breaking for her.

She is all smiles again.  They wanted her to stay on her side for several hours. Try keeping Naomi in any one position for more than 2 seconds.  Ha Ha!!! We gave up on that idea pretty quick.
 Starting to get crazy silly

Pardon the Kai Lan panties
Gone CRAZY!!!

Naomi spent some time with the camera (trying to occupy her)  She took this of Ali and I.  You see Ali is an amazing friend in so many ways but yesterday she took a day off of work and spent it with us in the hospital.  True friend I tell you.

Nurse Princess . . . no joke her name is Princess (she told us)  Good name for a great nurse in a hospital for kids.

I think Naomi all in all enjoyed her day of getting just about everything she wanted with lots and lots of attention.  Love my girl.  

Tomorrow is Referral anniversary.  YIPPEE!!!

Prayers Please

Tomorrow I hand my baby over to her doctor and walk away.  Yikes I don't like the walking away part. I don't want my baby to feel scared.

Naomi is having a procedure tomorrow if all goes as planned we will be home by evening.

But of course this mamma worries

My biggest concern is her feeling abandoned yet again.

She has a hard time with doctors even if it is just looking at her.  She still talks about the "mean guy" the one that does her blood draws.

Please pray for my sweet girl and her doctors and maybe me too, I just might need it.

By the way I got this cute little twirly getup from http://www.ruffledfeatherscompany.blogspot.com/ go check her stuff out it is super cute.

Wondering - it is a good thing

Every-time, not just once and a while but every-time, I cut my girls toe nails  

I wonder who's feet and toenails she has.

Are they her China mommies or her China daddies????

part of the reason I wonder is because both my boys so clearly have their daddies feet.

My girl will probably wonder lots of things about her China mommy and China daddy.

For now she seems pretty happy with Pink sparkly toes. 

 and for me I am still so happy to have little toes to paint even if half the paint comes off before they are dry because my little girl can't sit still for more than 2 seconds.
