POD: A Rainy Sunday, Sippy Cups, Flower Ears & Sittin Pretty

Ok so i've been a little busy playing with miss thang here lately and am just now getting a chance to post some pics from the past few days..lol...little Chloe Madison's personality has just blossomed over the past week and I am loving every second I spend with her..she ROCKS =)

Sunday it was raining so after Church me & Chloe decided to lay around watching Baby Einstein all day...she was a little ham posing for the camera!

Chloe doesn't seem to understand that shes supposed to DRINK out of the sippy cup instead of playing with it!! We're working on that!!!

Shes probably thinking "Are you serious?? Im SO not wearing these things!" These are gunna be part of her Easter ensamble IF she will participate =)

I just love this picture of her that I took on Monday, I love the way shes looking out like shes soaking it all in..she LOVES watching and observing people!

haha--like i needed a survey to tell me this....

You Are 77% Addicted to the Internet

In your opinion, life without the internet is hardly worth living.
Could be, but you probably need a bit more fresh air and sunshine to think clearly.

Happy Year of the Pig!

Chloe's still sick but doing a lot better, still has to be kept inside all day so we weren't able to celebrate CNY (Chinese New Year) like i had hoped but just having her home was cause for a celebration! So since Chloe is so young i decided to just get her a little gift for CNY and of course it had to be a pig because this is the year of the boar!

Chloe didn't know what to think of the pig at first..especially when you press the snout and it makes pig noises she couldn't figure it out!

"Hmm ok this thing is pretty cool!"

It was still just a normal day celebrated with our little "Barnyard Cutie!"

The plague......

............has hit my house =[sick sick sick, every single one of us in my house and i mean EVERYONE even the dog is sick =[

Poor little Chloe Madison is one sick little girl, she was poked and prodded yesterday to find out she has bronchial pnemonia and is confined inside the house for the next week and has to have 4 nebulizer treatments a day...not fun =[ i hate seeing my little princess sick!

my dad is coughing all the time and now has a nebulizer that he has to use 3 times a day along with a huge amount of meds he has to take that knocks him out cold.....

my mom is also coughing..every time she laughs she ends up sounding like she is going to cough up a lung at any given moment...

As for me, im not near as bad as the rest of the crew, just dealing with allergies as usual but on top of that this morning i woke up with a KILLER headache , forcing me to sleep most of the day away then stayed in the bed watching law and order re-runs on tnt...

As for Valentines day...not the best one =[ and the pictures of our sweetie in her valentine outfit were taken a few days ago...i miss that happy little girl and can't wait until i get to see that smile again! No pictures for a little while until she gets feeling better..for now i will leave you with a few pictures...one of her with her "mickey ears" on..the ears i bought her when my mom and I went to Disneyland on our trip to L.A last June...
..this one i love just because of the "sneaky" sort of look she has on her face

....this picture was taken just before we headed off to a superbowl party..i LOVE LOVE how dark her eyes look in this picture!

Chloe's personality sure has blossomed since we got her almost 2 months ago, she is such a funny little girl that brightens my day! She makes me laugh, especially when she does her "Piggyface" where she scrunches her nose up and makes the cutest noise like a piggy! Now if i tell her to do a piggyface she automatically knows what to do and looks for feedback from her "audience" to laugh and clap, boy this kid loves attention just like i always have..lol

Good Friends, A New Ride, & Piggytails!

I'm playing catch up since im a little behind on blogging...well last saturday night, we went to eat with the Newsome family, who was in our travel group and who also live very close to us AND whose daughter, Madison Mei was Chloe Madison's orphanage sister in Maonan SWI, so with everything we have in common we couldn't stand not seeing each other and have decided to get together at least once a month so the girls can continue to see each other grow. Anyways during the trip to China we grew very close to every family in our group and consider everyone lifelong friends of ours who share this amazing bond that no one can break! After a great meal and much laughter we decided to get someone to take a picture of our families...and it turned out quite well i think!

So after that, Me, mom, dad and Chloe went to Target to do a little shopping and decided to buy Chloe a new "ride" to celebrate our one month since returning from China...when we got home and put it together she was so excited and just LOVES to ride it..its so adorable!

Also earlier that week i was babysitting Chloe while mom went and got her hair done, so I decided to just try and put her hair in little piggytails for the first time and to my surprise she actually didn't mind me putting them in and kept both in for at least 30 minutes!! She looked darling and i cannot wait until this summer when she has a little more hair to put more piggytails in...hehe =).....
