At 14 months, Gi attended her first birthday party. Fellow Mei Mei, Alex, turned three. All the Mei Meis came to celebrate with Alex in their finest Halloween attire. Gi went as a hula girl. Mama was cheap and made her costume using sheets of felt and an old onsie. Happy birthday, Alex, and thanks for having us!

Yesterday we spent a fun-filled morning with Sammi and Miss Wendy splashing in the fountain at the local zoo. This is the first fountain splash for Gi. Like all newly initiated, Gi was closely examining a spout when a blast of cool water squirted into her chubby-cheeked face. Startled but not deterred she continued to make her rounds. Big girl, Sammi, showed Gi how to snack like a lady between intervals of watery fun. Big thanks to the "Hawkins" for the blast and the pics!

Hubs and I are lounging on the couch watching a little telly. Gi is puttering around in the living room when we notice our little dynamo heading toward the ottoman that we use to block her from leaving the living room. We usually place the ottoman between the tv and the couch. Gi squeezes herself in a corner between the ottoman and tv and slowly starts to dislodge the ottoman from its strategic location. For the next four to five minutes, our 18 lbs munchkin is pushing and pulling the ottoman around the livingroom oblivious to the fact that her parents are staring at her in awe. We managed to snap a few photos of her Herculean feat as our guts were busting with laughter.
Hugs and kisses to the G Family for putting together a fun-filled evening for us last night. We munched on pizza and chatted up a storm. We were able to see, again, little Riley, whose mommy and daddy were the inspiration for our journey to Gigi. Let's do it again!

Gi styling in her ladybug bib given to her by the Van Clan.
I'm afraid Munchkin has acquired her first cold since arriving in the U.S. During the past week, her tiny nostrils have been encrusted with discharge. Hubby's or my attempt to dislodge the unsightly substance has been next to futile. Gi will not let an aspirator near her nose. On several occasions, her sneezing caused mucus-like bubbles to squirt out of her nose. If we don't wipe her nose in time, Gi's attempt to do the job herself essentially gives her a snot facial. Not pretty nor appetizing. On top of that, she is cutting what looks to be a pre-molar. So the drooling has been intensified. A bib is part of the daily attire now. Oh and Mommy has the same cold too.
