The flower hat!
yes, we can play nice!!
So the results are in, the flower hat wins! There was a vote for every hat but the bucket hat which is actually my favorite!!! Oh well. Oops, and Michael's hat didn't get any either. Thought I'd share with you the agony of getting that picture of that favored hat. It's a good thing I figured out the burst feature of our camera, in order to salvage the squirmy worms face.
Today we brought the kids in for their international adoption clinic appointments. Dr Dana Johnson said both the kids looked fantastic. He was impressed by the gains Michael made in his growth. He is now 30 3/4 inches and 26 1/2 lbs at 14 months. He told us that he has found that the smartest kids were the ones who grew the most in the 1st six months homes, guess we better start saving for college...when he came to us at 5 months he was only 11.3 lbs and 23 inches! We're so proud of him. He said Phoebe was more developed than birth children, she wowed everyone. The only thing is surprise, surprise, she has a rash in her diaper area. He didn't think it was scabies, and he said it some type of contact rash, so back to zinc oxide...possibly some type of fungal so we'll just watch it...as far as measurements, she is now 15 lbs 4 oz and 25 1/4 inches. She was 12 1/2 lbs and 25 inches at the sos clinic in March. The OT called her the overachiever!
As far as the homefront we had a slight emergency last nite. But how thankful we are that we were home and I was right there when it happened. We built this house and moved in fall 2006 and the plumber didn't glue our hot water line to the master bath which is on the 2nd floor! Only by God's provision did this not happen while we out travelling the world but when I happened to be there. I heard and saw water coming out of our whirlpool tub face and couldn't believe it. There was a minor flood but we were able to wet vac the water, dry the floors, put fans up on the 1st and second floor so maybe we won't have to rip anything out, we pray so but are so humbled by a God who looks out for us. Even John was home! Right now would not be a good time to have construction with 2 little babies cruising around. Yeah, God!
