Yes, a NEW POST!!!!

Ok, I know,,, "Bad Blogger!" Lot's has been going on so here is what we have been up to! Zaela had her 18 month check up last week! She is doing great and weighed in at 29.8lbs! She is in the 97% for both height and weight so at least her height has caught up to her weight:-)

She is keeping Grandma quite busy during the day and seems to be napping less and waking up earlier and earlier! She is a very independent and social little girl and just does not seem to want to miss ANYTHING! A few of her favorite things are shoes, sunglasses, yogurt, being outside, and cruising Costco for those fabulous food samples!!!

We have also been able to squeeze in a few playdates with our local adoptive mom's group and I even had the honor of hosting a "Ladies Night In" at my place Sunday!!!

Oh,, and....I received the "Sisterhood" blog award from Malia's Mom:-) So, I get to tag 3 more lucky bloggers that have been soooo supportive and kept me sane during my... well... rollercoaster of an adoption journey.

1) Christy... http://ethiopianking.blogspot.com She is not only my fellow blogger and single mama, but become a treasured local friend!!! Thanks again for everything including your wine and cake therapy:-)

2) Rebecca... http://rejotoblog.blogspot.com Hello girl.. You always knew when to give me a call to get me through! I feel like I have known you forever,,, thanks for "getting it!!"

3) Chris.... http://journeytolayla.blogspot.com Thanks for being my voice of reason,,, You are the best!!!

If you add in bubbles and kittycats, Layla and Zaela have the same interests! I love Z's bikini and all the pics, what a babe!
