Being the Parents of a CELEBRITY!!!!

Malaena-Sloan and her brother, Brock....this picture made the Wall of Fame at our restaurants!
Malaena-Sloan and her Daddy at another one of her many engagements, Logan's basketball game. She's an awesome cheerleader with her jumping skills!
Well, we hadn't updated any pictures at our restaurant in over three years, but this one has been added! I have a picture of me giving Lauren "SWEET TEA" when she was 8-months-old, and now one of our angel! Everyone knows how health conscious I am....she really didn't get to drink any....YET!
This is Malae with her favorite lunch date, Bianca! Malaena-Sloan's agenda is busier than MINE!
This is Malaena-Sloan first thing in the morning preparing to see her fans. She is at Grammy's house taking a bath in her sink....Brock LOVED doing this when he was a little tike!
We have had people coming from all over to see our little "star"! This is a dear friend that I adopted as my aunt when I was 7...Aunt Carlene. She came from Youngstown, Florida, to see Malaena-Sloan! She stayed five days with us to make sure we were spoiling our girl enough!

I apologize for my delay in a new post! Malaena-Sloan and I have been quite busy as you can see from our pictures. We went to Paragould, Arkansas, twice in the last week and went to St. Louis yesterday on top of Malae trying to cut a tooth! This child is SO much like me....she does nothing easy. At this point, it feels like she will get a JAW TOOTH before a front bottom tooth! Yep, you read it right and I'm as shocked as can be. My 92-year-old Grandma couldn't believe it when she felt.

Malaena-Sloan is learning more tricks daily. She does MANY things on cue and holds some tricks out for when she wants to do it. Everyone asks if she is crawling, and my answer is that I'm sure she could if we put her down long enough. We waited many months to get her home, so I pack her around on my hip a lot! It's all good though as she is totally developing at a rapid rate! She's ready to get out of her JUMPAROO now so I'll close with this....WE ARE HAVING THE TIME OF OUR LIFE WITH OUR LITTLE CELEBRITY! PEOPLE STOP US EVERYWHERE TO TELL US HOW GORGEOUS SHE IS, AND I MIGHT ADD, HER SIGNATURE ITEMS ARE PINK TOENAILS, A MATCHING BRACELET AND BOW OR HAT WITH EACH OUTFIT, AND HER RUFFLY BLOOMERS! MALAENA-SLOAN IS A HIT!

I get such joy out of seeing Maleana-Sloan grow and change. You are so lucky not to have had to deal with these new birth mother interviews. Hoping to have Isabel home sometime in August!
