Silly Saturday Morning

I filled most of my time waiting for Isabel either reading or writing blog posts. I lived vicariously experiencing what motherhood would be like... especially to a tiny Chinese baby girl.

I also remember being disappointed when folks would suddenly slow down their blog posting after the chid got home. And while I know, logically, that this was an inevitably reality, I found myself sort of sad. I wanted to know what  Life After the Adoption was like.

The irony, of course, being that I am now one of those people.

Life continues. All the more busy with this new baby>toddler>little girl. And so, I find myself with a child at the halfway point of her Kindergarten year and stand in awe at how quickly it has all passed.

Life is good. Isabel fills my life with joy. She is a pack rat, a lover of laughter, the ocean and cheese.

And so, if anyone is still reading this blog, here are some photos from yesterday morning. They totally convey her personality.

Yep, still reading your blog... Just waiting for updates! (I'm sure most folks understand how tough it is to fit into "normal" everyday life, don't worry.) The photos are great -- with that range of expression, I'd say you have a budding actress on your hands! I also enjoyed the progression of photos down the side of the page...

Beautiful pictures! She's so growing up! We know the feeling of trying to keep up the blog; I decided to make it into a book each year, so it has become my family photo album, my scrapbook and the journal of our family life. Hope you keep blogging so we can see those gorgeous photos of Miss I.
