Building Families Through The Miracle Of Adoption

Feb 12, 2010

There's no place like home...

If you have spent anytime with HG in the last two months you already know her favorite movie (obsession) is the Wizard of Oz. This past week I wanted to tap into the power of Dorothy's ruby red slippers and come home. I attended my National Sales Meeting and I was homesick! I missed Little Miss Magic so much! So, when I arrived home yesterday afternoon, I rushed to get un-packed, showered and ready to play. Here is her SWEET reaction when she saw me!!! AND, If you're wondering what's all over Jason's face...that would be STICKERS. HG is also obsessed with stickers and she wants him to put them all over his face. She instructs him where to place them and he does...for example; chin, cheek, nose (you get the picture and now you can see the picture) and yes he rides around town looking like this................
I just beam when I see this precious little girl who calls me MAMA. She is the cutest thing ever!!! She had a great week. Luckily, the eye infection we battled last weekend is all clear and she is feeling great! She had two Valentine parties this week (here's just some of her loot) and LOTS more to come. She especially likes peppermint patties, suckers and gum.
and it appears from "Jack Frost" outside that we may not make the Tet Celebration tomorrow :( Don't get me wrong, I love the snow and welcome it anytime...I was really hoping to see CAS families and celebrate. We will have to see what the weather is like early in the morning. Either way, we will be celebrating TET and Valentines. I am so blessed to have Jason & Miss Magic in my life! WOW, I am such a lucky girl!
And, I am so excited that we finally have HG's 2 year old photos framed and hung...and I LOVE the way they look...these are 16X20 and her one year old photos are 20X30 because there are 2 vs. 3...with the 2 year old photos, I couldn't decide. She is SO photogenic, therefore, it is difficult to just pick one.
Miss Magic will be 27 months old next Friday, so... what is she up to? WOW, what is she not up to? She is extremely active and talkative! She loves to run and loves dance so there is no surprise that she is only 20.7 lbs. She is extremely smart...she can say her ABCs (only missing a few letters here and there at times), she counts to 10 very well, she recognizes letters and numbers, she knows her colors pretty good, she picks out shapes, she talks in complete phrases and she is not afraid to let you know exactly what's on her mind! I LOVE THAT PART because she is very independent and knows what she wants. She loves all types of food and eats extremely well. She loves fish, chicken, all types of veggies...corn, asparagus, salad, queso dip, grapes, apples, peaches, berries, bagels and cream cheese (actually she LOVES cream cheese), and the list goes on. She loves music and can sing "Somewhere over the Rainbow"!!! She will totally crack you up! She thinks she is a big girl!  
She is the apple of our eye that's for sure! God is so awesome and I am so happy that he gave us the most precious gift. She's spoiled rotten...but did you expect anything less??


Please  keep Mamaw Parker in your prayers. She came home from the hospital...only to return after she fell. Luckily, there were no broken bones but she took a hard hit on the head. Bless her sweet heart! I pray she can remain comfortable and pain free. Mamaw Linda fell yesterday and broke her hip! She's in the hospital as I type and will be there a few more days. God be with them both!
Be safe in the SNOW and hug the ones you love! I'll post Valentine & Tet pics soon! I'm off to get rest...we have a Big weekend ahead...and we are planning our upcoming TRIP!!!
