MCKLINKY BLOG HOP - FAVORITE PHOTOS

Today's Mcklinky Blog Hop theme is favorite photos. So I chose some of my all time favorites of Halainah experiencing things for the very first time. She lived in an orphanage in China for the first 13 months of her life. And when she came home she was amazed with the world and kept her eyes wide open wherever we went. To this day she is still a very curious little girl. Most of the time she uses her mouth to experience the world. Sometimes, that is not the best thing to do.


Eating dirt for the very first time. She never ate dirt again after this.


Eating an ice pop for the very first time. She LOVES ice pops now!


Meeting Elmo Live for the very first time. She was mesmerized by Elmo and would answer him and blow kisses to him...so cute.


Smelling a rose for the very first time.


Have a blessed day!

She is so beautiful!! My sister and her husband are on a waiting list now, for a baby from China... they have adopted from Russia, and then 20 months ago, a baby from Florida, both boys. They are hoping for a girl! yes, I think 4 or 5 would be perfect for WDW. My daughter was 8, and we crammed a lot into our days, and she was tired, so I reccomend spacing it all out! Thanks for stopping, I'm At Home!
