Time is flying…. and I just can’t take it!   I’m always amazed when I go to check my blog and realize it’s been a few months since I’ve updated. How does this happen? Time gets away from me. I guess it might be the fact that language school, cleaning, cooking, and a busy busy… Read More


So here it is…The moment you’ve all been waiting for!   I’ve had messages galore from curious minds….   Are you ready?   Last week, we made our big trip to Beijing for our 20 week scan. This scan was especially important to us having the history that we have. While in Beijing, we were… Read More


So, what did I learn from my first experience at the hospital here? I didn’t learn anything about my baby obviously! And to say….”I am now so appreciative of the medical care in America” is just…well…not much to learn if you ask me. I think the best thing I took away from this experience was… Read More

A special gift… And as I said before….really….what is a birthday without gifts?? lol We were SO surprised to receive such… Read More

The place wasn’t exactly the nicest…or let me say cleanest…that we’ve been too in a while, so on Sunday morning I woke up pretty sick. That’s not really unusual but… Here… Read More


The day I spent almost a year dreading finally came on Friday, and to my surprise it was an absolutely fantastic day. Actually, I shouldn’t say it was that big of a surprise. Wesley’s birth was the exact same way. I spent countless hours agonizing at just the thought of finally giving birth, and his… Read More
