Sleepy Again

I swear she doesn't sleep all the time. And she really does have a reason this time. Gettin shots will wear you out.
Yesterday was our first check up at the doctor. She weighed in at 17 lbs. and is 27' long. She is on a 7 or 8 month level developmentally, which is not news to us. We are going to have her evaluated for early intervention to get her going on the right path. She has made sooo much progress in the 6 weeks we've had her. She has gone from barely siting up to sitting unassisted. She can sit herself up from her stomach. She is starting to scoot along the floor. And she has started a little bit of self feeding. Now if we can just get her to hold her own bottle....... Oh, and she babbles alot. Ma ma ma, da da da, Na na na. Squeals and laughs. So much fun.
So she's off to a great start.
She had two shots yesterday which caused a fever. And the Tylenol I gave her made her sleepy. Thus another sleeping in the bouncy photo.
*****I forgot to add that she will clap when we say "Yay!!" and she waves bye bye to herself when we say "bye bye". We are working on "So Big" with her hands raised and "where is Mama" "where is Dada".

This was taken the day we flew into Atlanta. Next to holding my children for the first time, this was the happiest day of my life. We were exhausted , a little dirty, and very hungry, but as you can see we were on cloud nine. I love Madi's belly hanging out and the expression on Charlie's face. Very classic for our family.

Blowing Raspberries

All Tuckered Out

I had put Mei in her bouncy fun thingy and was trying to get a few things done. I love this thing because I can leave her unattended and know that the dog or other kids won't accidentally hurt her. So I was in the back cleaning up when Madi came and said, "Mama come look at baby Mei". And this is what I found. Poor thing.....she was so tired from all that jumping. So now she's napping in her crib. I'm sure it's alot more comfy.:)

Hi all....I decided to start a new blog focusing on family life only. Now that we are no longer "Waiting for Mei", I thought I'd start a new one for our newly completed family. So here are some pictures from our outing yesterday to the pond.
