Wendy's Traumatic Visit to the Doctor....

Actually, the doctors visit wasn't bad at all, because she is truly spoiled there. The nurse brings her a treat, and always gives more stickers to her. .

No, this is the story of how traumatic the Phlebotimists visit was actually!

My Poor little Angel~

I took Wendy to the Dr. and she told me that her ear was okay, her tummy seemed fine, and her chest was clear. She did say since she was sneezing and running a low grade fever it could be a virus. She did tell me that she thought that the stress of all that is going on could be the reason for the tummy ache, but with that said didn't have any advice. I've been doing Mylacon drops and that seems to relieve it some.
She had a blood test ran for lead from the toys that have been recalled. Wendy had two that were on the list; so I guess we will see how that went.
Okay, a three year old having blood work done...... She cried,screamed,told us to stop it, told the lady doing the draw she didn't like her and then out of no where she said she Hated her!! Wendy has NEVER said that to anyone! I had to lock down her legs with mine, her arms I had to grasp pretty hard. I hated the lady too at that point!
Wendy kept screaming and crying and saying "You're hurting my FEELINGS"!! The door opened and we came out. She got a sucker, and a sticker. The ones in the waiting area had their eyes wide and mouths open. Only one lady said "poor baby, bless her heart".
I got her out and set out on a bench outside and let her cry it out. She was doing the sniffle thing, and said she was having hiccups. I smiled and said no baby when people cry that hard they get the sniffles.
We went to the book store and as she was looking at books and loading me down she told me that her feelings were feeling some better. It was so funny/cute.
Then she wanted to go to Babies R Us for a toy, of course I took her. I haven't seen her cry like that since she was first home with us, and the doctor ordered 7 shots at one time, and a blood test to tell how many shots she actually had had in China. She was just as upset, but only 13 1/2 months old. I do think this was a little more traumatic because she knew what was going to happen.
I did find her a London Fog coat at Babies R Us, and with a move to Amarillo she will need it. I haven't really thought about it much, but we all will need cold weather items. Our area is pretty mild in comparison to Amarillo. Lubbock gets really cold too. I am actually excited about getting some winter clothes now! Oh, and you ask....did she get a toy?? You BET!!

I couldn't pass the story up since I kept finding it cuter and cuter. She would stop and think at the Bookstore and come up and say "Mommy, my feelings are feeling a
little better. Then she would read another book, and then say it again. By the time she had a stack of books chosen she told me that her feelings were much better now, but she still didn't like that lady!


Past Gifts from my Pal

I've been meaning to post the photos of my Secret Pal Gifts from my new Pal. There had been some switch ups due to some of the ladies were ready to end the swap, but then there were those of us that wanted to continue. Our coordinator assigned new pals to those whose pal opted out. My old Pal was going to pursue a Vietnam Adoption instead of enduring the long wait for China.
Just let me say that she was a wonderful and thoughtful pal and I wish her all the luck in the world.

My new Pal started of the swap with a mega package of Ladybug items! I've never seen a Ladybug Measure before; it is absolutely the cutest thing I've seen! Mylie has a new ladybug outfit to wear, and Wendy got the cutest ladybug umbrella.
For my 45th birthday my pal sent me a card and some scrapbook stickers with ladybugs and a set that has items from China.
My second package from her was an outfit for Mylie with a Lion on the front and two pairs of socks to go with it, a lion hooded towel to match, a ladybug hat, and for Wendy Popsicle molds, a colorful ladybug necklace, and a lavender ladybug wind up toy.

I can't wait to see what she comes up with next; for that matter I can't wait to know who she is!

I cebrated my 45 July 24th......

I am just now getting my photos on from my birthday. I ended up having a wonderful day. I was a little down about turning 45 since I was pretty sure I would have Mylie before I actually turned 45, but I ended up being 45 before she got here. I really hope and pray we get her before my 46th birthday.
All in all I had a wonderful birthday just the same. Holly and Wendy took me to Six Flags early and we rode a few rides and then headed back around lunch time to meet Lacy at Rice and Noodle a new Thai place Mike found. After having a really nice lunch with all three of my daughters we went to the mall and I got my ears double pierced. Holly treated me to this. I have wanted to be able to wear two earrings for a while now. My new studs are Rubies since I had it done on my birthday. At home later we had nice dinner and Holly had made me a Ladybug Birthday Cake. It was so cute and very creative we almost hated to cut into it.
I got tons of cards from my new buddies which I have made through our Agency while waiting for Mylie. They are some really wonderful ladies and I'm proud to call them friends. Sherry, I love the card and I didn't want you to think I left you out purposely. I had already taken the photo of all of the stuff before I got it. It is very cute with a button for a ladybug on it. I want to thank all of them for making my day a bright one.
My "Secret Pal",Susan, is one of these ladies and she sent me some of my favorite wine "Ladybug Wine", and some of the prettiest earrings I've seen. As you can see in one of the photos above; Wendy and I are dancing to the card she sent it plays "I'm Walking on Sunshine". Just the way I felt that day.
My family gave me some wonderful gifts as well. I truly had a wonderful day.

I knew I loved the color "BLUE"

You Are A Blue Girl

Relationships and feelings are the most important things to you.
You are empathetic and accepting - and good at avoiding conflict.
If someone close to you is in pain, it makes you hurt as well.
You try to heal the ones you love with your kind and open heart.
What Color Girl Are You?

I just love taking these quizzes!!!

This Is Where I Belong

You Belong in

You're a big city soul with a small town heart
Which is why you're attracted to the romance of Rome
Strolling down picture perfect streets, cappuccino in hand
And gorgeous Italian people - could life get any
City Do You Belong In?

I took this quiz and found that I belong in Rome. Funny how I would be given Rome as my answer; I have never been there in my life, but have had friends that have traveled there and just loved it. By listening and reading many of there stories I really do think I would love to be there. When I traveled to Europe about 7 years ago my favorite places were Austria, Switzerland (Lungern), and Germany (Fesson, Neutcheunstine(sp) Hiedelburg); very picturesque, clean, and surreal . I did enjoy London, but I could do without the City of Paris. I loved the French country sides though. What a trip I would do it all again if I could. Like I said maybe someday.......
