Two Years--A Day Late

We had Joseph home from school this week because he was having a hard time breathing and we had to do the nebulizers, inhalers, all that stuff. We finally let him go back to school today--not without worry but now that he is older he can tolerate things so much better so we are praying that he'll be o.k. I wanted to post yesterday but just couldn't and then decided not to post but the blogger in me just had to post:) I love this picture of JiaLi and my DH. It just melts my heart. I wanted to be there so badly but things all worked out. Please ignore the date that is on the photo--our camera at the time was a day behind and Mommy wasn't there to notice;) JiaLi spent her 2 year anniversary having her 3 year old appointment. For those who may wonder she is 32 1/2 pounds and 37 1/4" tall. She gained 4 pounds and grew 3 inches:) She is loaded with stickers on her shirt from the doctor and a little pony band-aid--she had a flu shot and lead test. I was so proud of how well she did. Such a change from when we brought her for her first appointment 2 years ago. I was going to be all serious in this post until I heard JiaLi having a conversation in the other room. She was playing with her dollhouse that she received from relatives when she turned 2. She was talking about her figures having a snack and saying "Yummy". Well, when I walked in, this is what I saw. I couldn't help but smile at the lego guys and C3PO joining in for the snack. I asked her to smile and instead received a face--I was interrupting their snack:) But then she did cooperate. These are the pictures I was intending for this post. I am so thankful and feel so blessed that we are able to have this wonderful child be a part of our family. We love her so much!!
