It has been over a year since I blogged. Since I cannot keep up with my scrapbooking, maybe I can blog some, scrap some. Hmmmm

I am going to be revamping the blog. It needs a face lift, title change, etc.

Hang on, it's gonna be crazy!

May 2010 -- It's been so long...

January 2010
We are growing like a weed...

We are potty training - fun fun!!

We saw Elmo -- can you tell I was into it??


Was her last day of school...

So far the first half of the year has been good. Petunia is growing like a weed, learning to pee pee on the potty, have had some speech therapy and am talking like crazy. She is the joy in our life. I can't believe we have been home almost two years!! Time just flies!

2 Year Old Pictures

My little Big Girl

So, Miss Iz has decided she likes to "talk" on the phone to Nana. Okay so Nana does all the talking and Iz just walks around with the phone on her ear. It is too funny!! And, she decided that she enjoys using mommies sweeper on the kitchen floor. Mommy says, "you go girl!!" She will go all over the floor with it until the battery dies. She is such a ham. She is also growing so fast that I just cannot believe it!! She IS my sweet Princess Petunia!! I love you!!

Bite Bite

Well this has been a week of bug bites. First it was her nose and now it is her eye!! She really reacts badly to mosquito's. I spray her with bug spray and it doesn't seem to help. Anyone have any advice on how to ward them off?? We have a pool and I don't know if that is part of the problem or not! My sweet girl has been so good even though she has these bites!!

Miss Iz decided that eating with her spoon did not shovel it in fast enough so we moved on to using our hands!! She has grown so much over the past year. We got home on July 9th last year and it has been one year since we have been home. Time goes by way to fast! I think we love her more and more each day! She is our jewel!

I cannot believe that one year ago tonight we were going to bed and getting ready to leave the next morning on our long journey to China to get our sweet little Izabella! I just keep thinking about how I felt. I can remember it like it was yesterday. I was excited, nervous, scared, happy, sad, every range of emotions that you could imagine! Wow, what a difference a year makes. Now I am worried about getting my deck stained before we really start swimming for the Summer. I can't believe I am a mama and I cannot believe that I have the cutest, sweetest, funniest, most pleasant child that I could have ever imagined. Thank you God for this wonderful little blessing in our lives!

On the Way home from the airport..

Look at me now...
