I needed a good laugh.

I’ve been a bundle of ridiculous nerves all week.  This afternoon I will face my first challenge of flying.  But this morning, my daughter broke the tension.  I was swinging through Starbucks on our way to speech therapy and as I rolled down my window to place my order, a little voice from the back …

ANXIETY

I have so much anxiety about this week that I would give anything to be able to fast forward to Sunday.  I will have to fly; I will have to spend 2.9 nights away from my child (the third night we arrive home very late); and I will have to impress the birth parents who …

Sunday

It’s been an easy, relaxed weekend.  Linlee has been a bit more agitated than usual, which is common after she’s been sick.  Hopefully she’ll continue to get back on track now that she is better.  I also hope she can go a month or two (or more!) before she gets sick again.  That would be …

Wibbit-Wibbit (Linlee’s frog sound)

Linlee is better today.  At seven last night she finally got up from the couch and started playing.  I guess it was a two-day thing, whatever it was.  Today hasn’t been easy, though.  There are always behavioral repercussions after an illness.  I’m not going to go into the gory details.  Instead, let’s have a look …

Why doesn’t Starbucks deliver?

I think they could make a killing delivering to people who can’t get out of the house or office for the day.  Even with an extra delivery fee, I’d pay it on days like today when Linlee is throwing up and I can’t leave the house.  Yep, that’s right, two and a half weeks after …

How Linlee Learns

Even though our spring weather has already disappeared, my precious girl wanted to go out back and swing some more this afternoon.  I continued working on getting her to pump.  She had no real understanding of why I was asking her to move her legs or lean forward and backward.  She kept asking me to …

Two Days of Spring Weather!

I tried to teach Linlee to pump on the swing today.  Yeah, total bust.  She likes being pushed.  She doesn’t like learning new things.  Sigh.  But I’m going to keep at it, otherwise I’ll end up being the only mom pushing her cute, little ten year old on the swing someday. And lastly, here she …

Just a little Saturday sugar…

Jumping off the wall.  Classic Linlee.

Play Date

Anne and I have been alternating houses on Fridays so that the girls can play while the moms discuss life.  It’s working out nicely.  Linlee still mostly plays alongside Rachel, but she is interacting a little more each time, which I love to see.  Rachel is a wonderful, patient friend to Linlee. I didn’t get …

Hello sunshine!

Thanks for all the well wishes about adoption #2.  My head is still spinning with this change of approach (as well as dealing with my extreme fear of flying), but life is an adventure.  We’ll just see where this possibility leads.
