Eli's Mei Mei

This photo is taken from one of Eli's favorite television shows on the Disney Channel called Go Baby!
On the show Baby experiences the world with his friend Sophie, who happens to be an Asian little girl. I looked everywhere but could find no photos of Sophie. She is adorable.
When this show first came out, I was still under the belief that we were moving right along in our adoption timeline to our baby Sophia and that she would be arriving in the next year. Silly me.
Anyhow, when Sophie would come on the screen, I would point to her and say Mei Mei.
Now, Eli thinks that all little Asian girls that he sees are his Mei Mei. Mei Mei means little sister in Chinese.
We were at Toys "R" Us the other night picking out a small scooter for Eli since his brothers and sister all have scooters. A little girl about 15 months old toddled over to look at a tricycle. She looked just like Sophie. Eli took one look at her and starting yelling, "Mei Mei"! He followed her all over the place. Her parents finally scooped her up and took her to another section of the store to escape Eli's hugs.

Yes, I love "Go Baby" and Sophie is such a little doll!
It is so cute how excited Eli is about his mei-mei.

Just wanted you to know that I've been trying all night to get your blog linked from mine, and it is giving me nothing! I have no idea what's going on, but will try again tomorrow. I am having my blog "pimped" in the near future, and if it is still giving me trouble, the person "pimping" it for me can fix it.
Frustrating!
Now off to read your post.

Kris,
Sometimes people call my site redmaryjanes when it is Seventh Diamond. I know that Blogger has been down a lot today also. Those are the only reasons I can think of as to why there are problems with the link. Maybe it will work better tomorrow. seventhdiamond.blogspot.com

Sophia loves that little show too. She hasn't really grasped the concept yet that we are trying to give her a little mei mei as well. She's too wrapped up in Daniel. Have a great day!

So cute! Our pandagirl sees anyone that looks Asian and very loudly announces, "Hey, Mom! They're from CHINA!"

He'll be all ready for his own Mei Mei - What a great story!

Hi, thanks so much for your comment on my blog. Sorry it's taken me so long to get over here. We finished paperchasing a little bit ago and have an LID of 12/14/06 -- I feel like the caboose on a very, very, long train.

That is such a cute story. I hope Eli has his mei mei sooner than we all think.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. We too, have older biological children (ages 21 and 24.) There is a huge gap between Desheng Darling and her brother (17 years.) We are expecting our referral for "Hope" in March or April, so DD will have a mei-mei too who will be much closer to her age. Again, thanks for your comments. Feel free to visit anytime.

Tee Hee. That's pretty cute! I love that they had to "escape" his hugs. All I can say to that is.....awwwwwww......

I love it when the kids notice Asian children, it confirms that I'm not the only one in our family staring.
