So Happy to Be Back!

Hello everyone!! We have been in Kansas visiting family with no internet access. I am so addicted to my blogs and email that I could barely stand it. I was so worried that I was going to miss something, and it seems that several people got referrals. Congratulations to everyone who has gotten good news, and for those that I was really hoping to hear of your referral but are still waiting, hold on just a little longer. We think of you all of the time. Emily, Lulu is coming soon!!

Kansas was a lot of fun and it was great for Lucy to get to meet some more of her extended family. It rained on 4th of July, so she didn't get to see any fireworks this year. She probably couldn't have made it up late enough anyway. It was great to see her play with cousins and have such a great time. She is walking up a storm these days. I still haven't caught any of her best walks on video, but here is a preview. She has walked long distances now when she slows down and does not try and run. It is so much fun to watch her and we all cheer so loud for her after every good walk. The first one I am upstairs because she does so much better when she doesn't actually see the camera.

We are going to Nashville this week to help my sister and her family move. She is preggers and I can't wait to see how much her belly has grown and see John and Lucy together again. While we are there, we are getting to have a reunion with some of our very best Vietnam/blog friends. Lucy will get to play with her orphanage sisters and roommates Grace and Lily Ana and meet Annslee for the first time. We are very excited to say the least. I can't wait to post pictures of the girls all together again.

Here are some pictures from our trip to Kansas.

At the baseball field on July 3rd.

She even had a smocked flag on her bloomers.

Great pictures! Are you ever going to be in town long enough to visit?! Haha. I'm so jealous of your fun reunion!!! Have a great time and take lots of pictures!

Those walking videos are just precious! She is doing so good! She'll be running before you blink so enjoy every minute!

We were in Parkville, Mo on the 4th, (Kansas City). Wonder if we were close?
Where do you find the "BIG" bows for your cutie?

Suz said...

Hey Kelly, my friend is interested in adoption from Vietnam and I don't know much about it since we're a Russia family. Could you e-mail me on how she could get in touch with you?? Thanks!

Look at that girl go! I can't believe she is walking so well. Terri, Grace and I can't wait to see ya'll this weekend!

Jonathan said...

Wow, she's practically running already! Very adorable.

Heather said...

She looks so sweet in her flag dress. She has changed and developed so quickly. You are doing a great job with Lucy.

Kristin said...

Whoa, you have a walker too!!! Lucy is such a little star!!! Walking before she is even a year old! Is it hard to keep up with her? I am so excited about Laney walking now, but I know that she is going to be such a busy little bee now!!!
Lucy is SO cute! My husband (not a blogger) even loves to look at her cutie pie pics)

Kristin said...

I just love the pictures and videos, especially the picture where she is looking up at the camera. So sweet! Have fun on your trip!

Sara said...

Miss Lucy you are walking! Wow! My Miss Lucy will now teach her how to out, mama!

Sarah said...

Great videos. You must be a very pround mamma! :)

rachel said...

What a doll! She is doing really great with her walking. She'll be tearing through the house in no time. I hope Mommy has some good running shoes. ;)
