Did You Miss Us?

Has anybody missed us? :)

I can not believe that there has been a one month gap in between posts. My days have not seemed long enough lately and a bout with vertigo has left me a little shy of using the laptop for extended periods of time. The words moving make me feel car sick....ha ha! ;)

Anyway, back to the girls. They have both grown and changed a lot this past month. Unbelievable. Emma is in Kindergarten and Sophie starts her Starlets class (1x wk/Parent & child class). Emma has grown leaps and bounds attachment wise, has 2 loose teeth, & is very independent. Sophie has developed her true personality more than ever & is a non stop chatter box.


I have uploaded a lot of catch up pictures below & I plan to keep up the blog on a regular basis again.

Guangdong Girls KNOW How to Party!

We were lucky enough to celebrate a dear friend's 5th birthday a couple of weeks ago. Her name is also Emma...so we call her "The Other Emma". It was a "Princess Party" & as you can see these four Guangdong Princesses really do know how to have fun together. :) I hope that this quad will remain friends forever. (Their parents are pretty cool too)!

1st Day of School for '10-'11

Emma's first day of KINDERGARTEN was on August 16th! I did not snap as many pictures as I would have liked to. As I recall we were running a little late. Man O' man....I really can't believe that my baby is NOT a baby anymore! :( Emma is ending her 4th week of school already. So far she has held her own in a "typical" classroom setting with support from her Para as opposed to being in a Special Needs classroom full time. She still has pull out time to visit her SN class...but, not really much so far. I know that it is challenging for Emma and it has not been with out bumps this year....but, we are finding our way. I am very proud of you Emma!







Double Cuteness....

Double Luckiness....Double Naughtiness....Double Trouble.....Double fun.....Double Blessed!

We Scored Bigtime!!!

This particular Friday was a very, very good one for Emma and Sophie! After running our ritual morning errands of the summer I surprised them with Mc Crap...I mean Mc Donald's for lunch. when we arrived home we had multiple boxes on our front stoop!

Lao Lao & Yeh Yeh had sent a letter & pictures of the girl's attic pals The Grinch & Santa (long story....). ;) AND, Auntie Molly mailed them souvenirs from her trip to Peru. (Greg and I got stuff too)! Lastly they received toys that their Daddy had ordered for them....simply because they asked....a baby doll for Sophie & a Grinch for Emma. (Do you see a Grinch pattern here)?






Practicing With Chopsticks!

Can you tell which girl is a little bit frustrated?! ;-)
