I know, I know....

It's been, like, forever since I've posted.  I have no good reason.  I have a reason, I'm just saying it's not a good reason.

Here goes...I never found the time to upload the pictures of Alice's cardiologist appointment.

There.  That's it.  It's been over a month and that's the best I could come up with.

So, here's the update:

Her cardiology appointment went well.  He said that she had one hole in heart at birth that was repaired around the age of 6 months (not 3 days like we were told in the orphanage.)  It was a good repair and he didn't need to see us again for 6 months.

Now, was that so hard?

She's started to sit up.  She's started to crawl.  And she's cut 6 teeth since we've come home.  I have pictures, lots of pictures.  But, in true Emily fashion I haven't taken them off the camera.  But, I simply couldn't wait any longer.  The guilt of not updating was starting to effect my daily routine. (That means I wasn't reading my favorite blogs because I felt bad.  I know, I've got issues.)

Whew!  I feel 10 pounds lighter!  I think I'll reward myself with a snack.  Hopefully, I will feel free to update more often...and with pictures.

Madam Blueberry

I thought Alice would love to eat frozen blueberries...why not?

She liked the taste, but hated the cold.  She would pick them up (fine motor skills) and then toss or throw them because of the cold.

She even tried to eat them without touching them.

After she was nice and blue I decided to give her a sink bath.  You know, when you are too tired to walk all the way upstairs to give the kid a bath in the tub so you spend just as long cleaning the sink and give them a bath there?  But, after doing this, it may be our go-to place for baths...she fits!

After this picture I heard Henry behind me saying he wanted a bath.  Sure, I said.  I turned around and he was naked in the middle of the kitchen!

So, although he SO doesn't fit, he got a sink bath, too.
