Weekly Photo Shoot of AA

She's a moving target!!


Top two pictures: AA is "flopping" on her pink squishy chair, never to sit still (gift from our DD's MIL, this lady).

AA is trying so hard to say "cheese"and pose; almost too hard! She now steps into/towards the camera when saying cheese; that makes for a fuzzy close up! I did get a few good ones.

She is running around in underpants; we are almost through with diapers. She just loves to pull up and down her undies and sit on her potty. For weeks, we have been holding her on top of our toilets and she does well that way. We decided it was time for her to take control so placed her training potty in the bathroom (we had tried it when she was first home from China but she seemed too distracted to start potty training).
She is almost trained and now can "do it herself". Of course, the wipes are close by for our final inspection!!!

Above: The big cheesy "over the top, trying too hard" smile......



She is a joy in our life! We have so much happiness with our family! We so wish all families could be with their forever children; it is a blessing!
