Lindy here. They say babies from Hunan are very clever. I'm bloggin'--how's that for clever?!
Today marks one month that I have been with my mommy and daddy and tomorrow marks three weeks that I've been home. Wow! I'm not sure if anyone's checking this blog anymore, but just in case, I thought I'd tell you what I've been doing.
Basically, I have had a very full social calendar. Of course you already know I met Grandma & Grandpa Caples. Grandma calls every so often to talk to me so I don't forget her. I miss them. :o(
I have also met so many new friends. I've been to both Mommy and Daddy's work, I've been to church, I've been walking at the mall with some of my new friends, and I've been to WalMart and the grocery store. I'm one busy girl!
I have also been eating like a queen. There have been all these nice people who have cooked yummy dinners for us, and lots of nice people who have invited us to dinner. I really don't turn down anything, and am glad to get away from all the congee I was eating in China. Of course, if I don't watch it, I'm going to be in a size 12 months before I know it.
Last Tuesday I went to the pediatrician. I had two shots. I wasn't thrilled about it, but the nurse put two sparkly bandaids on my thighs, so I survived. I'm not sure who cried more--me or Mommy. I was 18 pounds and Dr. Groos thought I looked really healthy.
I don't get to watch much TV. So far, only sports and news. I clap when Mommy says, "Go SPURS go!" I clap for Phil Mickelson when I am watching golf. I put both arms in the air when Mommy says, touchdown." I love to watch the weather--especially when there's a storm brewing; the colors are so pretty.
I like to read. I can say, "MaMa, DaDa, and Hi." I am also working on ball and baby. I can quack like a duck and bark like a dog. I also can sign "more" when I want some more food. Of course, I perform all my tricks at my discretion.
Daddy went back to work on Monday, so Mommy is flying solo. So far, she's doing okay. I keep her on her toes, though. Today, I pulled myself up from a sitting position on the floor to a standing position along the couch. I am not so interested in crawling, I think walking will be more fun.
Well, that's about all I have to report. It's been a full three weeks and a wonderful month. I don't think I've had my picture taken in the past couple of days, but here are some pictures of me with my new loved ones.
