i have been blogging for nearly three years. it all began with documenting our adoption of malaena-sloan. at first, it was like therapy then it became addictive as i followed several other adoption blogs. now, i wonder if people really read my blog as facebook has really seemed to take over. i know i have a counter on my blog but i can never remember to look at it. soooo....i have a favor to ask you leave me a comment on here or on my link on facebook that you still check in on occasion!
personally, we are amazed by malaena-sloan! she is super active, super flexible, super talkative and all-around precious. still fights her sleep each night tooth and nail, but she's so easy on most every other thing. she has an addiction to peppermint. it's amazing what she will do for a peppermint. she now is calling donnie "poppy" or "davvy." we have no clue where she came up with this but think it might stick. today, i was working at my computer and she said, "Hey, Cheri, I want Dora." i said, "What did you call me?" she grinned and repeated what i heard! such a little "grown-up!"
malaena-sloan is all about role playing. donnie and i are her baby, and she's the baby. she tells us exactly how she wants us to act when we are the baby. she gets fighting mad if we do something differently than what she instructs. she is all about pony tails everyday of her entire life. she even wants me to wear one. she really likes at least two ponies and they have to be PINK rubberbands regardless of her color ensemble that day. we ask her what her favorite color is and she says, "I lub (love) pink!" it is the sweetest thing ever how obsessed she is with pink.
enjoy the blog and know that i really do still have nice hair. it's been really humid here and rainy and pointless to try to tame my curly flock! for now....i'll see you behind my lens!!!
