I am first a follwer of Jesus Christ. My goal is to daily transform, becoming more like him. Second, I am a mother of three young children who make my life crazy fun. We are also expecting a baby in May 2010. I love being silly, but know when to be serious too. My husband is an amazing partner in this journey and we enjoy creating great memories with our kids. Life sure has lots of opportunities for that!
now wearing a 3T and 4T! Miss Gumby has grown a lot since we brought her home. She was wearing a plenty loose 2T when we hopped off that plane and now she is in a 3T bottom and 4T top. Her hair has also changed bundles, from brittle and dry hair that didn't grow very fast, to a silky texture that shines and grows much quicker. How do I know how fast it was growing compared to how quickly it grows now? Well, the frequency of need to cut her bangs of course. And while we're at it, those finger and toe nails are growing WAY faster too.
And this poor little cutie has some other news for you too. This week while we were on our "Tuesday with Daddy" date, she had a little mishap.
While we were walking from curb to parking lot I looked back at Smiles who was doing something (can't even remember now) and she slipped right out of my hand (and if you have a little one with like Gumby you will know what I mean when I say how easily she slips out of your grasp). She fell face first onto the pavement and blood was all over in her mouth. I was SO afraid that I might have knocked out one of her teeth! Luckily Handsome was less troubled than myself and cleaned her up quickly. She was fine enough to walk down to the beach and have a jolly time. It hasn't seemed to bother her since either...other than a little bit of feeling around with her tongue on it. But really, that's pretty expected from Gumby even when there isn't something there to feel.
Clearly it hasn't stopped her from playing and dancing with the other squeezers.
On another note, I realized that I just don't know as many of you as I used to. I used to make an effort to know who read my blog and to try and know at least a little bit about them. I looked at the numbers for the first time in...well, in months...and I realize there are some hiding readers. So, if you would be willing, I would like to know something about YOU. If you are up for it, please leave a comment telling something about yourself, short or long. And if you have a blog of your own, please make sure that I can get there to come and see a little bit about you.
Also, if you have any questions that you would like to ask, please ask away. I'll be sure and answer any of those (so long as they are appropriate ;-).) I realize that I've been off the blog a lot since Gumby came home and you might have questions that I haven't answered. Questions can be about anything and don't have to be adoption related.
