Keeping Connected

In a few days, it will the 2 year anniversary of the day we got Lily. I came across this link for an organization called The Ties Program
Check out the video. CHSFS organizes trips like this also and I look forward to the day where we take our own birthland trip back to Korea. I know it's a few years away but the way time is flying it will be here in the blink of an eye. I can't help but wonder if someday Lily will want to open her file and locate her birth family. In my own selfish way I hope she does, but I realize it's entirely her choice. We wholeheartedly support whatever decision she will make. Can you imagine having the opportunity to say "thank-you" to your child's birth mom? How powerful. Only time will tell.

You Go Girl!

It's been a big week for Lily...

Just one month ago, her feet wouldn't even touch the pedals and now she is riding. Ok, I know...probably not a good idea to let outside toys in the house.

We discovered "Pinkalicious" after story time at the bookstore. Brings a smile to my face to be able to say I have a daughter obsessed with Pinkalicious. Never thought I would be able to say anything like that in my lifetime.

And finally....

No more diapers!!!

What did we do to celebrate Lunar New Year? Nothing! It was just one of those crazy weeks where time just got away from us. Now, we are always up for taking the kids out and we have pushed the limit many a time but this time, it just didn't happen. I am sure many of you can relate to the project a simple meal can become with 3 kids at a restaurant. I do feel a bit guilty since it is so important to incorporate Lily's culture into our lives and we do have like a billion Korean restaurants and bakeries nearby. I guess there is always next year. Check out this article:
Seollal Brings New Adventures, Old Traditions.
We are in the process of sending an update to Lily's foster family in Seoul. I am pretty behind on that too. Shocker! I plan to include a few of these shots in the snow. My mom made her this cool sweater set...

Ooooooooo snow!!!

Is she coming?

She told me not to eat the snow...

But I did it anyway...
