Our travel mates (except for the only other experienced parent couple in our group) lamented her lack of, well, liveliness. They were kind, but could not help commenting on how Baby S… “She doesn’t make a sound, are you sure she can… can she stand on her own… my daughter is 6 months younger and is bigger than her… and blah, blah, blah.
This is for another post, but P and I, like most parents, have wondered how the CCAA matches a child to a family. Initially, we thought it was a matter of supply and demand or what baby/orphanage was next in line. Every day, Baby S demonstrates why she is here with us, and we are each and every time humbled. Our fate as a family was carefully orchestrated, and we are forever grateful.
This video was taken last night at Wally Mart. P placed his iPhone (Yes, I also have one. No, don't ask for the numbers. If you don't have them, it is because only our children, and a few others NEED to have them.) on a stereo on display, to play one of his favorite songs, Dead Man’s Party (by 0ingo B0ingo). It is a staple at our home and it is cute to see Baby S recognizing the song. Please, no comments about lyric content, as P and I strongly believe that it is never too early to introduce OUR children to inappropriate lyrics. J grew up with the same music, is now an adult, and is not a serial killer, sociopath, etc. :)
We will be updating the Blog this weekend. Sorry about the lapse.
Happily walking on her own (she usually wants to be carried) with the balloon she picked to celebrate our Family Day.
