Ahh...This is the Life!

Well, isn't this the life? What more does a girl need, than her blanket, pillow, drink and Veggie Tales in the DVD player? Evidently, the answer is not a thing!

I love those silly vegetables!

A day At the Zoo with Baba

Back on Feb. 10, my friend, Angie, had a Crop day for a fundraiser for their adoption from China. I was able to go and scrapbook 26 pages, 22 were from my baby shower back in Sept. 2005 and 4 pages were our China trip. Obviously, I haven't scrapbooked since before we left for China! It was so awesome! I had a blast and it was the first real break I had gotten in a really long time.
Troy decided to take advantage of the balmy weather that day and take Sarah to the zoo. Can I just tell you how much I love our zoo membership? It's so affordable! It was only $65 and that includes the family and one guest for the whole year! I would highly recommend getting one!
My one request of Troy was to take the camera...and USE it! So, he took a few cute photos I thought I'd share...
Giddy up, Tiger!

Can you tell the giraffe was a little curious about the camera?

Uh, yes...I am very thankful for that fence...

And, sometimes, this is what you get when you ask for a smile from our little cutie...I guess she has no idea what it really looks like.

When all else fails, ask her to show you her teeth...every facial muscle gets involved in that one!

A Game of Hide N' Seek

Well, it was a few weeks ago, maybe a month or so, and my Noodle & I were just having fun. Hide n' Seek is a ton of fun around here. I caught these cute photos and if no one else, I knew Lao Lao would enjoy them!

My little Chinese Jumping Noodle...Troy says we can't call her a jumping bean...so, this is my version.

Ho ho hee hee...that's a good one, Mama...I got a good belly laugh out of that one!

Pretty Jacket Lao Lao made me!

This is my jacket with "flufferbyes" that Lao Lao made me. Mama said she sewed it. Isn't it pretty?
I'm showing Mama that my tooth is coming in on the top in the back in this photo!

Aren't I just too cute!

More fun with Waldo...

...and introducing, his buddy, Winston (he's the smaller fuzzier one).
So, I'm a Mama obsessed. I just think my baby's so darn cute, I can't choose just one photo...I go a little nuts. You should see my scrapbook, it's ridiculous how many photos I have of my baby! *sigh* What's a mother to do?
Maybe I can find a 12 step program of some kind...although if loving my baby's an addiction, I don't wanna get better!! lol
Here she is...
Awww...Waldo, You're a good boy...I need to give you kisses!

Heehee....I just love those light switches! How many times do you think I can turn the lights on and off? Do you wanna see??
(By the way...the piggy tails have only come out for baths! She won't even let us take them out when she goes to sleep! I guess I don't have to worry about HER taking them out! Who knew piggy tails would have been so much fun?)

Yup, I love my doggies, I need to pucker up to give them lots of kisses!

She's double fistin' it now!

A girl and her doggies...don't leave home without them!
By the way, the cute outfit is brought to you by Lao Lao, from who else, but Gymboree!

Happy Chinese New Year! (for real this time)

Since tomorrow is the official Chinese New Year, we went to the Library downtown today to a performance/celebration. It was fun, Sarah really loved the music and dancing and was having a ball up in the balcony where we were sitting.
See, Mama, I want to swing on the bar, like the little monkey that I am!


Hmmm, I'll have to think a little before I decide on that one...

Here is the Lion Dance, Sarah just LOVED it! She's been talking about it ALL DAY LONG!! It's a tradition in China when the Lion comes near you to feed it money and they say it will bring you prosperity in the New Year.

Here is our little one, pretending to dance....she thinks that somersaults constitue dancing for some odd reason. Either way, I couldn't resist that little bum!

That Baba of mine, is sooo silly!!!

Pretty Chinese Princess

I never knew Piggy Tails...

...were so much fun!
Well, when I was brushing Sarah's hair today I was realizing how long it has gotten! Soooo, I decided to try out some piggy tails (as Sarah calls them). She hasn't even tried to take them out, either! So, you know I just HAD to grab that camera! When I see how cute they are, I just wonder...why didn't I think of that sooner??
See, Mama...Piggy tails!

How can anyone resist that face??
Look, Mama...Baba's flashlight!

New Song Video

Well, I couldn't figure out how to post this video on my blog, so here's the link to it. It's really precious. The contemporary Christian group, New Song, went to China and they made this video from their visit to an orphanage. It's really sweet. Just makes me want to fly back to China and bring them all home...

Photo Shoot with Waldo!

And so it's time that we bring to you, all the way from Sarah's arms...her most favorite toy and dog in all the world....dah dah daaahhhh
Sarah absolutely insisted that I take Waldo's picture, and since she would NOT put him down....there you have it. I doubt there's ever been a little pink & white stuffed dog that's ever been loved so much by his girl. (I really hope to find another one as a backup or I may be in trouble!)

A girl and her dog

This is normally where you find Waldo

We let Waldo have a little nap for a game of "where's Sarah" behind the corner of the wall. Can I tell you I just love my camera, she was only out there for like 2 seconds and it was enough to catch that beautiful smile!

Okay, Mama...can't I just go to my nap now? Haven't we had enough? Waldo is really sleepy and wants to go to bed. I'll meet you up there...

Potty Talk II-The Sequel

A couple of weeks ago, Troy was helping me out with Sarah and decided to give her an evening bath instead of the normal morning one. It was nice, I was downstairs relaxing and enjoying a break. I could hear everything that was happening upstairs in the bathroom. It was a riot. Sarah and Troy were playing, splashing, putting their faces in the water and blowing bubbles. I tell you, it was more fun than I'm sure is legal in some countries! So, I'm just relaxing and smiling as I listen to the loves of my life enjoying themselves, it just warmed my heart.
I heard them blowing bubbles in the water, then Troy said as he was laughing, "EW, Sarah, you blew bubbles from the wrong end in the water!" (yup, she tooted)
Then, to my surprise, I hear this from Troy:
"What the...?"
I RAN upstairs to see what happened and looked at Sarah who was standing in the bathroom with her ducky towel on her and a look on her face that said, "What happened? Did I do something wrong?"
Then, I look at my dear husband and see him holding his hands opened up and as far away from his body as he can, like there was something on them. I quickly look to the tub, to see a few floaties in the water! I immediately knew what had happened! YUP, my baby pooped in the bathtub! But the kicker was, Troy had picked it up to see what it was!!
It must have happened 2 weeks ago, and I still burst out in laughter when I think about it. The look on his face when he realized he had just touched her poop, with bare hands, no less...was hilarious.
Bubble Bath: $3.99
Rubber Ducky: $2.49
Sarah's Spongee: $1.99
Look on husband's face when he touches 2 year old's poop in the bath: PRICELESS!

Happy Valentine's Day from Lao Lao

Lao Lao made Sarah the most adorable Valentine skirt to twirl around in. Sarah absolutely LOVED it! She didn't want to take it off last night and then, put it back on this morning under the dress she was already wearing! Of course there are like a hundred photos cause I couldn't narrow it down. I'm just too proud of a Mama.
She thinks she's funny, switching the lights on and off and on and off and on and off, and on...etc...

Sarah, you are much too young to pose like that little lady!

When I told her to pull up her skirt, that's NOT what I meant!

She thinks if I close my eyes and don't smile, Mama won't take my photo!

Forget this...I am OUTTA HERE!
