When I sit down to write on here, it's hard for me to narrow down exactly what to write, so I will just start rambling and see where it goes.

Yesterday- Mary (foster mom) drove us around downtown Atlanta. We also went to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial and visitor's center. We saw the neighborhood where he grew up and where he's buried. It was an intense experience and let's just say that after this week MLKJ day will always mean something in our house. Then we went to a buffet and ate a late lunch." T" is like a celebrity where ever we go.

*Oh let me back up a bit. Because of the legal risk part of this adoption and b/c I"m feeling a little over protective we are not going to put her name on here. So we will just call her "T" from now on out.*

We also went to the clinic b/c she has a cold and we wanted to check to make sure she doesn't have an ear infection. She was a celebrity there too. One of the nurses even had to hug her good-bye. What a special little girl we have! Oh and her ears are fine, she is just getting 5 teeth! Youch!

Today, we just hung out all day. It has been a nice relaxing day so far. I had my first try and fixing kinky hair. It went Ok, we didn't do it all but we fixed a few of the ponies. And in honor of our anniversary tonight we are going to order from an authentic New York Italian resturant. No we're not in NY, but the lady who owns the resturant is. I can't believe we've been married 9 years! And I never thought we'd be across the country getting our 3rd baby! God is good!

Bet she makes you smile!

I think that's a great idea Laura! We'll make it a date:) But beware she's not exaaaactly as innocent as she looks. She's kind of a goofball.

She is completely delicious. I have a feeling she's going to be a bit of a celebrity at home, too!
