So Stinkin' Cute!

So seriously...how cute is this? This is how she does her hands each time she says, "uh-oh". So adorable. She was throwing a toy out of the tub to Braden and saying it each time. Of course, our laughing egged her on.

As of today, Miss W can say Mama!! She also waves and says "hey". So cute!! We had our first doctor's appt. today. Lil' miss weighs a whopping 22 pounds! She's in the 3rd percentile for weight, but she's in the 25th percentile for height at 33 inches. I didn't let them give any shots or take blood today. I feel like we need to try to get this sleeping thing down before we start traumatizing her! I am not looking forward to those appointments one bit!

Last night wasn't a total success, but it wasn't a total failure either. She woke up twice but I was able to keep her from completely losing it and she went back to sleep quicker that way. Boy would I like another full night's sleep ;) I forgot how much energy a 2 year old takes. I've gotten OLD since I had a 2 year old running around here!!

...and because I know you need a Wesleigh Jane bow fix....

here's a look at our ensemble today ;)




Do you think anyone in the orphanage ever did this to her bottle? Hmmm...brothers!!!

btw...do you see what a wreck my house is? It's AWFUL!!! I can't seem to make any progress. Things are just getting moved from one pile to the other! Oh well, maybe tomorrow....yeah, right!

Thanks for posting so often even though you are so busy and so tired! I look forward to your posts and seeing your adorable Miss Wesleigh! Love those eyelashes and smiles and outfits! Also love seeing her interactions with her wonderful big brothers! Just wondering from your caption about the orphanage for the bottle photo - was Wesleigh in foster care? Hope you get some good sleep tonight, Kathy

"Uh Oh" is right... You are in trouble... Four men doting on her!!! They are setting the bar high already!!! I love it!

The tub photo must be framed!! I have a few tub photos hanging in my girls' bathroom...love em. Cade said not to worry about Wesleigh's clothes because her closet is already full!!! How did that happen so fast??? He loves her so much. And, she fits in yall's "cute" family. His words....missing you, Lauren McGowan

LoVe the bath photo - I think it's perfect! Please keep recording those sweet little things Wesleigh is doing - you will love to read them later - you will (I promise) even love reading about the piles in your house and your sleepless nights - it's all still part of the "journey"!

I have been reading on my blackberry (I was out of town) & haven't been commenting - but I am going to go back to your previous posts now & comment - not because i have anything profound to say, but I just wanted you to know that I HAVE been here & loving every post!

She said "Mama"!!! How amazing and wonderful is that!

She is TOTALLY CUTE!!! Her expression in the bath tub is priceless:)

She's looking so peaceful and happy. Wonderful! I have to ask, where do you find all the bows/headbands? Locally? On-line? Do you make them? I'm very curious...and interested!!

Denise said...

Love the pics!! I am drooling over the MJ clothing...never have bought any and probably never will, so I will have to live vicariously through you...LOL!

I'm so happy for y'all... it's lovely to see photos of her in your home, messy piles and all. (And... umm... isn't it a REQUIREMENT for our houses to look trashed for the first few months home?)

My house has been a mess since we got home in July!
So good to see everyone is doing well. The sleeping will get better. It took Chloe a good 6 months before she would sleep through the night without waking up at least once crying. Everyday gets better and better and pretty soon you are used to your new "normal"

She is so very cute! In Chinese, she's "hen ke ai."

This blog is now my homepage. It's great how you're documenting her story. I'm adopted, and would loved to have had someone journal about me :-)

Good luck, and we'll talk soon!
