Our Dossier is on Its Way to China!

After 11 months and 5 days of paperchase, our Dossier is finally on it's way to China! This took about double the time I had anticipated, but it's finally happening! Soon we will get our Log In Date which will secure our spot in the L-O-N-G line. Anticipating a wait of four or more years, but really hoping the wait will be shorter. Above are some pictures of all our paperwork before it went to our adoption agency in Colorado. HHM!

Happy First Birthday Regina!

The Happy Birthday Girl

On the day she was born--she still sleeps with the ducky in her crib!

Keegan and Giana eagerly awaiting Regina's birthday cake to be cut!

Reggie has been standing and walking now for about the past month!

At LP Zoo with the Gorillas, showing off her opposable thumbs!

A sleeping black bear--only separatead from us by a quarter inch think plexiglass plate!

At Farm in the Zoo--my favorite part!


Regina turned one year old this week. We spent a great day at Lincoln Park Zoo and then came home for birthday cake and celebration. We took the train and a bus to get to the zoo--the girls' first time on Chicago public transit! Regina's birthday party is this weekend--looking forward to her balloon extravaganza!!

This Just In....


Nana Jacqui just called me at work to tell us the good news, Regina said "Thank You" this morning and used the phrase in the correct context! My mom was handing her a sippy cup, and Regina replied, "Thank you", then proceeded to repeat the phrase a few times in response to my mom's voice!!!

She has been doing the typical "da-da-da-da", "ma-ma-ma-ma", "pa-pa-pa-pa", and "ba-ba-ba-ba", so this "Thank you" is a completely out of the blue!!

Stay tuned, because she is progressing so quickly I am convinced mastering calculus will be next!!!

3/10/10 Update: I was just feeding Regina dinner, and she said it to me a few times! It's officially part of her vocab now. Way to go Reggie Roo!
