6 Month Visit

Today was Lance's first day of 3rd grade and our final home visit with our social worker. Yes Lily will be home 6 months on the 10th of September. Does anyone know how to make the time slow down just a little bit? In the blink of an eye these babies will be driving cars and off to college! Not that I don't look forward to these wonderous developing relationships I am so blessed to have, it's just that I could use a bit more calm to savor these days that are flying by. I think Lily is like a poster child for Korean adoption sometimes and wonder how we were chosen to be her parents. At 6 months home and 16 months old she is: climbing on everything, chasing her brothers around the house, still doesn't say more than "mom" or "da." She does, however, understand so much and knows how to point to her belly, nose and toes when asked. She loves to put my shoes on ( accessorizing already...yea!) and even tries to draw with crayon! Hide and seek and peek a boo create shrieks of laughter from her tiny body.

After hearing about the first day of school, we headed to pick out flowers for our social worker which Luca proudly gave her along with our family photo. We are grateful to her and the agency for everything they have done for us... truely a life changing experience.

Meeting Cousins

This weekend, we had a great time with Amy and her two boys who were visiting from NJ. It was Lily's first time meeting the boys. They brought us 3 pizzas from NJ!! How we miss the GOOD pizza. Those of you who grew up in NY and NJ and have moved know what I mean. She also brought homemade coookies, scones and pie!!
We only had 2 days but we packed it in... Air and Space Museum, some DC monuments, The White House. Today, it was Burke Lake Park lunch and ice cream after. So great to have them down to hang out with as we close out the summer.

Hanbok Photos

Ok, so her first birthday and baptism were 3 months ago but we have had quite a busy year. I finally got around to having photos done of Lily in her hanbok which was given to her by her foster parents. Boy was she a trooper. So much going on, the dress, the slippers, the headpiece, and all during what should have been her naptime too. Overall she did very well. Can't wait to send a copy to her foster family.

Trip to Hershey

Our trip to Hershey PA was a great last minute adventure. The kids had a fantastic time at The Hotel Hershey pool and ice rink, yes ice skating in the summer. The boys enjoyed the clubhouse where they made smores. We booked a sitter for Lily and Rick and I enjoyed cocoa massages and a quiet last some alone time!! We spent an entire day at Hershey Park alternating rides that each little one could enjoy. Let's not forget Chocolate World and the drinking chocolate tasting at The Hershey Story museum. Delicious!
