Happy New Year!
The days have blurred themselves together. On Saturday, we took Jubilee to the walk-in clinic. No, I took her. We had to tag team now that we're home and I didn't have a posse. I was a little offended, but it made sense that Dodger was spared from the waiting room during sickness season. Li Li has ear infections, and is on her first antibiotic (that I know of). Today, she was FINALLY (what we know to be atleast) herself. Funny, laughing, ga ga-ing. So, the meds are working. Troy's been a little under the weather but went back to work today. Since my sister took D and Troy went to work, Li Li and I had a whole day to ourselves! I was not wanting to be alone, but had some wonderful visitors - Masako, Liho and Deanna. I tried to make it over to the Contich residence, but thought we were having poo poo problems again. She has now gone twice since then. :) I would have to say we have the best, most blessed baby! Every minute is pure joy. If I had more energy, I'd blog about the tale end of the trip, but I really need to get the pics off the laptop first. I am really not that tired. Just lazy. And we're working on our first photo book of Beijing and the Great Wall to be printed asap. I will have to say, the close of 2007 will be etched in my memory - especially now here in print. It was cold - windy - and Dodger wanted me to play football with him outside. He was so wonderful. Troy held Li Li inside at the window while Dodger and I threw his new Nurf football. He kept showing me the sidelines and the point where we were "out of balance" instead of bounds. Then, very often, we would take 5 minute breaks per his request (usually when I scored a touchdown) and he would say "just tell me when it's five minutes". I could have said it in 1 or in 100 minutes, he played with his slingshot until I said it was time. We have loved our PJ days, yummy meals brought by friends, and hanging out just a bit more before the activities begin. No need to go out tomorrow, it will be a whopping 13 degrees if we are lucky! Li Li fits right in. THIS SHOULD BE THE HEADER: LI LI LOVES AVOCADO AND TRIANGLE PASTA. SHE IS A VEST AFTER ALL!!!! xoxxoamy
