Just wanted to let everyone know that Sophie is feeling much better now that the new antibiotics are in her system. We have already put up our Christmas tree because we will be leaving Dec 1 going to Birmingham for her surgery. She had a good time decorating. Thanks Nai Nai for helping us get our house decorated!!!!

They cathed her at the doctor's office to be able to get a clean urine catch. Her nurse did a great job and was in and out very quickly!! She also got 2 antibiotic shots. We are 10 days away from surgery...please pray that she can stay well and that nothing will interfere with our surgery date. Thank you all for loving Sophie as much as we do.

Hello friends and Henri!! :)I am sorry it has taken so long to post anything. Life is much busier with an active 3 year old running all over your house exploring new things daily. Samantha came to visit over the weekend and blogger has not been cooperating with me so there is my excuse.
We had a wonderful visit with "Manfa" and we miss her very much. Having her here makes me realize how much I do miss her. We grew up together and have remained close friends over the years even though she moved away to South Carolina about 18 years ago!!! Thanks for the visit Sam!!!
Sophie is doing well and is speaking more and more English. She is beginning to act silly and is very loving. She is clinging to me more and more and we are spending more time in the rocking chair. This makes my heart happy to know that I can love her like a mother is suppose to do. She loves to play with her baby dolls and her kitchen.

We went to Auburn this weekend to watch the Tigers play ball. We tail gated with Nannie and D-Daddy in their motor home and with the Bentons. I took Sophie in to the first half of the game and she really enjoyed it. She was yelling War Eagle!!!!!
Sophie met her big brother Lance this weekend for the first time and even gave him a big kiss. She has come a long way in just two months time!! She loves her "Baby" Auburn Tiger bear that Lance gave her.

Is this girl just too precious or what!!!!! We have had a busy but productive week this week. Our Daddy has been out of town this week leaving mommy to do everything so blogging has had to wait. Each week Sophie becomes more and more attached to me. The power of prayer has really worked on this sweet girl. She has come a long way in such a short amount of time. I never dreamed that she would be hugging and kissing me this quickly. She has wanted be to hold her ("bou" in Chinese) this week which has been a wonderful time of bonding but it is breaking mommy's back. I am loving every minute of it though. She will at least let me sit down to hold her. She is a silly girl and is actually feeling really well this week.

We went to the National Peanut Festival Fair last night. Sophie had a very good time. I was worried that she would have a tummy ache through the night but we made it with a little help from our tummy medicine!!! I bought ME and ear of corn and look who ended up eating it!!! She was too funny!! We did share it but she did not want not one kernal of corn left on the cob. She is a serious girl when it comes to food!!!
Sophie was suppose to be Elmo for halloween. She loves Elmo but really didn't like having him on top of her head. She did not trick or treat because she fell asleep on the way to my friends house. This was fine with me because I don't really like halloween. It just ends up being a tired night for the parents. Yes I know that I am a scrooge!!!!! But she sure was cute in her Elmo suit!!!!
Posing with our sweet neighbor Morgan!
Sophie posing with her little cousin Hayden halloween night. She loves to play with her baby dolls and she didn't know what to think about this real-life baby doll. She seemed to really enjoy holding him!!!
Lastly, I would like to end this post with saying an extra hour of sleep to a chinese 3 year old means just an extra hour to get up and play. I hope that you all are sleeping soundly this morning. I know everyone in my house is except for me and Sophie!!! I think mommy will deserve a nap today!!!!!
