One month a family!

Today marks the one month anniversary of Maisie joining our family. Though no outright celebrating took place, we did have a good day. Maisie did scream bloody murder as Will the vampire phlebotomist drew blood from me this morning but after that, the day got much better. For lunch we met Kathy, Deb and LiLi which was a lot of fun and though Maisie didn't allow anyone other than me to hold her, she did allow Kathy to feed her some fruit puffs. We then went on a shopping trip to Costco followed by some play time at home. So as I said, overall a good day.

Since I did a big update yesterday, I'm just going to post some pictures of our little sweetie girl today. Also, I'm still planning on going back and posting pictures and more about our trip but it's daunting trying to figure out where to start. So if anyone has questions about our trip, please ask them in either an email or a comment as it may help me get going on some posts...Thanks!

Hmmm, what colorful plastic toy should I play with next?? (Check out her dimpled right cheek as well as her new leopard print tennies which actually stay on her feet!)
I love driving my Princess Car and playing all the songs over and over and over!
Hey Mama, pay attention to me, no blogging for Mama!!


  1. I'm so glad you're home and somewhat feeling better. Your little Maisey is such a cutie and has wonderful expressions! Can't wait to see her for real.

    Rest up!

  2. My gosh so many expressions on such a little face. She doesn't need to speak with that little face it tells you everything.

    Miss Maisie you are beautiful.

    Very lovely picture. She seems so much more comfortable in each and everyone.
    As for her screaming when the blood was drawn - better her screaming than you, but you typically faint. Glad to know she doesn't like it when someone hurts Mama!

  9. Sounds like a fun day (`Cept for the blood and screaming). She is a cutie and appears really inquisitive.

    Enjoy your family!

    Keep smilin!

  10. Happy anniversary, glad you had a good day!

  11. I just can't get over her sweet little face... come back here over and over just to get my fix! :)

    So glad to hear that you are on the mend and that Eammon and The Divine Miss M are already better.... !

  12. I love that picture of her looking at you around the monitor. She'll be blogging before you know it!

  13. I love her little play area! Very cute pictures of Miss Maisie!

    Happy anniversary. I love all her cute expressions. So good to see you both last week. So glad that you can now slide her off your chest!! She is doing great.

  15. Look at those sweet little shoes! And such teeny feet!

  16. She is so cute! I have followed your journey for a long time and am so glad to see Maise finally home with you. I am curious how you deal with stares and questions when you all are out and about. We planned to adopt from China and I did a lot research and still hope that we will one day. When I see a family with a daughter who appears to be from China I want to do something to show my support but I never do. I wouldn't want that kind of attention and I wouldn't want it for my child. What do you think?

  17. Im happy you are feeling a little better. Maisie is so beautiufl and looks soo happy! We are leaving this week to meet our little Lia, and we are going COO too!

  18. Wow, I cannot believe it has been a month already. Maisie looks great playing with all of her toys. I hope you are feeling better.

    We are going to a private blog. Please email me at so I can give you the new site.

  19. She is so cute!!! So glad to hear from you an update and to see pictures online!!! Now I know that Tate will be needing one of these princess car things!!! Too cute!!!


  20. Happy one month you cute family you!!!!!!

  21. Maisie gets cuter and cuter everyday!

  22. Just 4 more days and I get to meet Ms. Maisie!!! yayayayayayaya

  23. Happy 1 month anniversary! She looks so happy!!!!
