I am guessing that Soph was baiting her teacher (who is no weanie) by being naughty and "daring" her to write me a note. I love the "needs to mind her own business" girl is all up in everything at home and now at school. Heaven help me....

*yes I know she wrote to instead of too....but lets be honest spending your day with 4 year olds is going to result is some tired note writing.***

Re-Adoption Birth Certificate

We have been home with Sophie since September 2007. We have yet to complete the paperwork that would provide her with an "american" birth certificate. I am conflicted about the birth certificate stuff...if I am not mistaken, I think it lists us as her parents. Yes, I know we are her parents, but a BC typically lists your birth parents. She still can't president of the USA even with her American birth certificate.


What are the benefits of completing the paper to get Sophie a NC birth certificate?

Soph is one happy girl! Here she is with some of her pre-school peeps. She is rockin' her "China" outfit for their class CNY party. She brought red envelopes with Chinese gold, oranges, fortune cookies, a zodiac coloring book, a book for her class to keep and some yummy red velvet cupcakes. Her teachers describe her as a happy girl....what more could a mama ask for??!!

I am working on a blog post about our attachment journey and the impact ( I believe) that Sophie's SN had on her becoming securely attached to us:)

In the meantime check this blog out. Cute family.

What's your Word?

In the book and movie Eat, Pr@y,L0ve the characters discussed their "word". The ONe WORD that best describes who they are, who they want to be, what they want their life to be. Hop on over to Lisa Leonard's blog of beautiful:) and enter to win a necklace with your "word"

My word....Time. Make time to enjoy the blessings in my life, find the time to take care of myself, spend time with those I love, and last but not least.....stop wasting time.

Good luck!
