BDT: "Is it straight?"
Me: "No a little to the left."
Me: "Oh I'm sorry, I meant right."
Me: "No... too far right go back a little more left."
Me: "Try spinning it a little left."
BDT: "&#(*@() @&$(*Q)@& #@%$^#!!!!!!!!"
Me: "It's looks great honey, just like that!"

And I've had a bit of writer's block. I've been uninspired. For so long I used this blog as an outlet for the frustration I had with waiting for Dreamgirl. Then, after returning home I was so joyful I used it to brag and spill all the details about her. Six months later I'm settled. No longer desperately needing to vent my fears and questions and anxieties about an impending adoption and a bit calmer from the hysteria of those first few months as a proud new mama. But I do like my blog. I love to scrapbook but don't find much time to do that either. This blog sort of acts as an on-line, public scrapbook of my life... my children growing and our adventures. So here I am... back in the saddle.
So... during my "va-cay" we celebrated our SIX MONTH ANNIVERSARY with Little Miss Dreamgirl. Can you believe it? Six months she's been ours. Six months since that day she walked into our lives in the arms of an orphanage nanny. Six months since we stepped of an United airplane as a new family... tired, jet-lagged and unsure of how our transition would go. And we made it! It feels like she's been here forever! And yet, at many times I am so aware of how much time we missed with her. She's growing so fast... and to think of those 9 months she grew without us watching. I am still mesmerized by her... I catch myself staring at her... her big, brown, almond eyes... her tiny, little, peanut body... her beautiful thin fingers. She's so smart. She's funny. She's mine.
Be back soon, friends... and I promise!
