What I've been doing for three weeks

Hi everyone,

Lindy here. They say babies from Hunan are very clever. I'm bloggin'--how's that for clever?!

Lindy with Grandma and Grandpa
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 Lindy and Megancase, 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(
Lindy and KimI 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 Lindy with Katie and Annalike 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 Lindy with CliffTuesday 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.

Lindy with Jean and MommyI 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.

Lindy with DenisaI 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, Lindy with Jaime and BeckI 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.
Lindy and Ann


Love,
Lindy

Thanks for the update! I check in every day to see if there are more pictures! How precious you are Lindy! So many have prayed for your arrival and we are so glad you are with your forever family. God definitely has a plan for your life. When you are older and you hear the story of your placement and how you came to be with daddy and mommy it will be so clear to you. I am so thankful that your parents opened their hearts to receive the blessing God had in store for them. You, Lindy, are a blessing from God.

Hi Lindy...Grandma Caples here. Not only are "Hunan girls" very clever, it sounds like "certain Moms" are pretty clever too! I was glad to get your update and to know you've been having so much fun this past month. By all the pictures it looks like you've made lots of new friends...you're such a social butterfly! I love to hear your stories (translated by Mom, of course!)whether you're blogging or phoning me. You have a beautiful voice! Bye for now my little ladybug. Love, Grandma

Hi dear granddaughter,

I am so glad that I was able to be with you when you first arrived before your schedule got so busy. I think you are one "smart" girl and are able to do many amazing things.

Thanks for showing us some of your friends. Keep up the blog so we will know how you are doing. Also, remind mommy and daddy to continue taking video pictures. I can't wait to be with you again.

Happy, happy First Birthday!

Love,

Grandpa Caples
