I don't even know where to begin it's been so long since I've put anything up here!
So what have we been up too?? I'll start with our summer highlight..SEATTLE!
We traveled to Seattle August 10th to visit Uncle Paul and also Nina and her family. Nina is also from Huining like Em. We traveled with Neal and Monica last year to meet and adopt the girls! We know that they didn't really know each other in Huining since they both lived in foster care, but they are the closest link they have to their past in China. I think we both want the girls to be in touch because of this.
What a blast to get together with them and see the girls together. Both girls are quite precocious! We knew that Em was talking a lot for her age, but Nina is talking even more!! They are both delightful, observant, insightful girls who are wise beyond their (2!) years. In fact, both of us have had thoughts that maybe the girls are older than we thought...but I don't think there would have been any reason to dismiss the birthdates we were told, so I think that we just both have extraordinary girls. Not that we are biased, AT ALL! Okay, enough bragging...here are Emily & Nina!
We had to laugh that both girls hate having their picture taken. I didn't catch one where they were both smiling. Too funny! The girls had fun running around Nina's backyard and also playing in the park at our adoption agency picnic. PLUS, check out the folder in the sidebar I made with lots of pics of the girls & Seattle.
