Waoh...... Have I really not posted in that long???

Well, I actually have a minute to post to the girls blog...
We went on the Lebanon train ride to the pumpkin patch. SO much fun.
We went with Ni Ni and Ye Ye. There we farm animals you could feed carrots to,
balloon sculpture guy, wonderful looking caramel apples, and so much more.
Highly recommend it to you Cincinnatians!!

I have to say, the past 8 months have been so great!!! Bekah and Leah get along so great (most of the time) and love each other sooo much!! Bekah tells Leah how much she loves her a lot!!
The Lord has blessed us beyond measure. My heart is longing for a son or two, so please keep that in your prayers as we do not know what God has in store for us!!! But, we are sure excited to find out. Hope you enjoy the pictures, and just look at the photo above and the one on the top of our blog. Leah is getting soooo big, and boy does she have personality GALORE!!!

Leah's 2nd Birthday Party

Today we celebrated our precious Leah's second birthday, and the first with our family.  It could have gone a little better...  our baby woke up from her nap... 45 minutes before guests were to arrive and had a fever of 100.9... ok...  then, an hour later is was up to 103.5 with her motrin in her even.  So, we quarantined ourselves (her and I) so our family could still come and visit and eat all the food we had!!!  ;-)  So, after having motrin and tylenol in her for a couple hours her fever came down to 99.  Praise the Lord.  She was perking up and we got to enjoy some outdoor time and present opening.  She love the automatic bubble blower!!!  Then off to dinner and cupcake time.  She didn't quite know what to think of the candle with the flame on it in her cupcake and 25 people singing Happy Birthday to her.  Plus, she wasn't quite her cute smiley self.  Don't let the pictures below fool you too much.  She certainly wasn't our happy go lucky Leah...  I think there were about 200 I selected from.  But, all in all the day was good and thanks to all our family for sticking it out and I will be praying that no one gets her little bug.  Enjoy the pictures.  Thanks for visiting!

Getting warmer!!

Hey everyone.  Thought I would post again while I had a minute.  We go to Children's again tomorrow to see how the fluid on Leah's ears is doing.  HOPEFULLY it is all gone and she won't need tubes, but we shall see.  I really worry she cannot hear to her full potential.  We had the test done, and she did pretty good, but the thought there would be room for improvement.  Leah's 2nd birthday is next month.  I can hardly believe it.  It will be fairly low key... she really is the happiest little girl.  Her and Bekah have so much fun.  Leah just follows Bekah  (or mommy) around everywhere.  She does what Bekah does, runs if Bekah runs, laughs at the drop of a hat.  I have got to get her laugh on this blog.  It is absolutely the cutest thing I have ever heard!!!  Below you will find my latest "photo shoot", and the one just below is Bekah trying to be cooperative for the tulip shot.  They were sooo pretty I just wanted to get that perfect shot... ha, maybe next year... she did try though!!!  Maybe too hard!  Thank you for visiting us and enjoy the pics.

Wow... where did the time go!

Well, it has been since before Easter since I was able to post!!!  Yikes we have been busy.  So, here are some cute Easter pics... they had a blast color eggs and sponging them.  Didn't know you could even do that!!!  HA  Hope everyone is well, and thanks for visiting.  I will have to post again very soon so I can get in more pics and stories of what has been happening!  Blessings!

What have we been up to???

Oh dear, what haven't we been up to???
I figured I better get on here and post some photos!  We have had playdates and doctor appointments and circus', and fun at home.... and so much more!!  This will mostly be a post of photos.  That is what everyone likes to see anyways right?  
We did have a great time at the circus, but those darn clowns are just NOT funny!  But, I guess they need something to take up time while changing things, but can't they figure something better out???  
Leah is a LOVE LOVE LOVE....  she is the greatest addition to our already amazing family.  She does have a temper, but thankfully we don't see it too much.  She is not saying too much yet...  just the basics:  Hi, bye bye, mama, ekah (for Bekah), more (almost there), up (she has that down), all done (at least I know that is what she is saying), so needless to say, Help Me Grow will be evaluating her and taking us on board for speech, just like we did with Bekah.  Her eval at Children's told us she was at a 13 month speech level as a 20 month old, but we figured that with her being older and only knowing Chinese and the cleft lip/palate.  She will catch up soon.  My favorite thing is that she gives kisses on command, and sometimes not on command!!  Bekah was never as free with hers... and still isn't until her little sister starts layin' on me, then over she runs to follow suit!!!  Enjoy the pics.  THese girls definitely love each other.... PTL.  At least they do for now, right?  ;-)

Where are all my teeth I say...???  I am 21 months old already!!!

My grown up girl... how does this happen so fast??

Waiting for dinner before the Circus

Daddy and his girls.

Someone liked the ride on Daddy's shoulders more than the circus I think.

Playing at cousins Kaitlyn and Frankies house

playing dress up

and dancing around a lot

Beks loves her construction protective goggles

These girls really do love each other!!!

Sweeter than Chocolate...

Most of the time!!!
These girls are finally coming into their own and playing together a little bit better and loving each other a little bit more!  Bekah is still a little rough without realizing it sometimes, but hopefully we will be moving past that!

We are getting a good sleep routine and schedule down, so I am happy with that!  Leah is only waking up once or twice at night, so that is really nice!  Enjoy the pictures and we couldn't be more happy to have this little treasure home with us.  She smiles A LOT and is just a joy to be around.  Thank you Lord for all the blessings you  have given us!  Enjoy the pics

Leah LOVES the kitchen.  But, she mostly loves to chew on the spoons a spatulas.  I think this girl has about 4 teeth coming in at the same time!

Bekah would give kisses to her little sister all day long if I let her!  Leah loves to give kisses to Mommy, so for that I am very thankful!  Bekah is not quick to share with me...

You can see Leah's favorite toy in the background.  It is one of those air blower things with the balls.  Thank you Aunt Jo!!!

Another girl after my own heart.  She is already following Mommy around while I clean here and there.  Again, like Bekah, we will see how long it lasts.  Although Beks does enjoy the swifer duster.  You go girl!!!
