Girly Girl

This girl is so girly that it absolutely cracks me up. I pulled this nightgown out of the drawer for the first time tonight and she imediately go SO excited. She couldn't wait for me to put it on her and then she couldn't wait to go show her daddy. She ran through the house twirling her nightgown and calling for daddy until he finally came in from outside. How does she know to go and twirl in front of her daddy? It makes my heart smile!

She is so silly and cracks us up all the time. She has become the heartbeat of this family!!
Does anyone know what they say when you sneeze in China? Wesleigh says something a little different and didn't know if it could be from China.

Chinese responses to sneezing vary by region and dialect. However, the most common phrase when someone sneezes is 一百岁, or yi bǎi suì (pronounced yee-bai-swei) which means, "May you live a hundred years." If a person sneezes two or three times, one may say liang/sān bǎi suì, meaning "May you live two/three hundred years." Another possible response is chang min bǎi suì, meaning simply "longevity." Religious practices in China are closely controlled by government authorities (although this has been steadily loosening since the 1970s) and the Chinese do not use the term "God bless you."
