Seven more sleeps til we hit the road...er......skies!

So, I was browsing through old pictures and videos last night and came across these 2 clips. Just days after arriving home from China back in December 2004. A good reminder just how squirmy and wormy my little Dahlia was.

Which then reminded me to get my head in gear for the possiblity of another squirmy, wormy little bundle of energy.

Seeing Baby Dahlia this tiny makes my heart just lurch with anticipation.

I'll never get over this fact: China is giving us a human being, an actual person, a little bundle of beauty and love and all that good stuff (oh, and some nasty too...let's call it like it is).

No bigger gift than this!

I'm excited for/with you! Sometimes the thought that we have our children from Ukraine/China is so overwhelming - that they are here in the flesh as our children and we LOVE them! oohhhh it gives me chills! The not-so-nice parts are like the crumbs from chocolate cake, messy but still worth it!

Hugs :)

Have a great trip, Wanda. May everything go smoothly on your trip to China. Call my friend if you need help. She's great and she'll point you in the right direction if she can't help you herself. :)

Oh to go back to those days of a little, little one. It's demanding, but it goes by in the blink of an eye. Soon, soon, soon......
