Sunday :) Mama got to feed Taya!

 She ate a whole bowl of potatoes , beets and some strained chicken maybe ? then a BIG burp :)
She was happy today and still in the same pj ;) You should see the hole in the nipple of the bottle...big. It made me nervous she kept gagging. They finally took it away from me ;)
She is wearing a sz 18 month carters sleeper with 2 other outfits under it, at 4 1/2 yrs old. She is an itty bitty :)

Please pray for all these children. They all deserve loving families. The children in her group break my heart. They NEED homes. That is all I can say for now .
Anne-Maria is my mission this week :) I will squeeze her !
we are having the best time here. it is cold 41 last night but nice :)

I'm glad your having a good time. We are surviving. Our baby girl is so sweet, also much tinier than her pictures, 13 lbs. They have been great in getting us a quick court date so we can get home. Had a bit of an emergency with Jax at home, so I'm anxious to get back. Court is scheduled for Wednesday. Praying our interpols are back by then, i don't know how much longer i can wait to get back to my son that needs me!

Girlfriend, it is Mindy Stirling - from Ethiopia adoption... I am wondering if you are getting to know any of the other children from Taya or Benji's orphanage? My husband and I are praying about adopting again, possibly DS child. I would like to know more about the children in their homes. I would like for someone to know their personalities. We are wanting a girl. let me know, thanks girl!
So glad you are getting to be mommy to your other two!

Stas choked like mad too. I wondered what I was doing wrong. His eyes got red and watery like he was aspirating. Odd.
