What a beautiful day...outside that is. It was sunny all day long and 65 degrees. It felt so good to take Halainah outside and get some fresh air. Fresh air is always good when you have a heavy mind. We didn't spend too much time outside as we had some errands to run. But Halainah was so interested in everything. I cannot wait for the flowers and trees to bloom. I think Halainah is going to want to be outside all of the time. She sat on our front steps for a while and let the breeze blow in her face. She had her eyes closed and her nose in the air. I wish I knew what she was thinking at that very moment. I don't think that she was able to enjoy fresh air that often in her orphanage.

Halainah loved being outside!
The breeze on her face felt so good!
Halainah loved her shadow by her feet too!
She still can't stand on her own yet so she used the fence for support!
Stop calling my name Mama, I'm busy right now!
Hmmm...what's this?
It feels scruffy...
What else can I find and feel out here?
Today was so beautiful outside Mama...when can we go out again?
Halainah in her Monkey PJ's...she is certainly a monkey when it's night night time. She's a good sleeper but boy does she put up a fight trying to get her to sleep!
Hey Jiu Jiu... I miss you! Mama wants to know if you spot something funny in this picture...DON'T PEAK AT THE NEXT PIC!
Mama and Dada bought me crocs...well fake crocs, even though she said she hated them and made fun of them! I'm so cute that I can make ugly shoes look good!
Oh and by the way...they are a size 3-9 months...I told you my China Doll has small feet!

Love the monkey Pj's. Robert told me that when he came to visit she would pull on his pants and climb up to his leg,she is a little monkey. soon she will be swinging from the roof.
Isn't it great to see how a child looks at life for the first time? we tend to forget how wonderful and fasinating the little things in life are.
I hope the rest of the week is as warm and nice as it was today, sometimes we all need a warm day with our face in the sun enjoying the "fresh" air.
