Friday evening Lexy decided to have a tea party. Everyone was invited but Brooke and I were both doing things on the laptops. After Daddy joined her party, Lexy told Brooke and I "please come to my tea party...there's free WIFI available" LOL I don't know where in the world she heard that (probably TV) but it sounded so darn cute coming out of her mouth...and I did join the party!!
Saturday Brooke, Lexy and I went to the Kidsfest (Mike went to a movie w/a friend). Lexy has always had a facination with people dressed as characters and this event was no exception, she had to have a picture with each one!
I wanted to also update on Lexy. After doing an EKG, x-ray and doing blood work to check for anemia, we went back to the doctor last week for a recheck and the doctor said that all the tests came back perfect and his evaluation of her heart that day showed that her murmer was back to just a slight soft murmer. So no more tests and no cardiologist appointments necessary!
I am a biological, adoptive and former foster mom (for 8 yrs) all rolled into one. This is a place for me to journal/scrapbook the happenings in our life. We are currently adjusting to our new normal after adding three new little ones to our family in Sept. 2012 though adoption from the foster system.
I love to hear from you! Please feel free to leave a comment or e-mail us at... firstname.lastname@example.org.
