Preparing for a Party...


Tomorrow is Sophia's 4th Birthday Party. We are celebrating with family and friends.
I am finding myself very emotional. Just thinking about it makes me cry. Most likely my daughter has never had a birthday celebrated. I don't even know how much she really understands about what a birthday is.
Tim's birthday was a couple of weeks ago and last weekend we went to Sophia B.'s party, so I am hoping she will understand what it means. I ask her how old she is and she holds up 3 fingers and then I ask her how old she will be on her birthday and she holds up 4 fingers.
She loves The Little Mermaid. My father got her the movie in Mandarin and she watches it and also watches the English version. So, we're going to have a Little Mermaid cake. She also loves the Disney Princesses and Tinkerbell, so I had a fabulous time buying her gifts in the Princess section of Toys R Us. I got her some Ni Hao Kai Lan things too, she loves that series.
It is raining today, so I hope we have good weather over the weekend!

Happy Birthday Sophia B!







Yesterday we spent the day with the tribe at 'Never Too Many'. We celebrated their Sophia's 5th birthday. We had a fabulous day. We went boating, swimming and fishing. We had a great dinner and cake. It is so nice to have friends who understand the journey you are on and whose lives mesh effortlessly with yours. We are very blessed to be able to share so much time with this family. Happy Birthday Sophia, we were so happy to be there to share it with you!
