Two months since we’ve met

Robyn reminded me that Saturday was two things: First it was the two month anniversary of us meeting our little darling marshmallow and second it was her birthday!

Now, before you go thinking me to be a horrible parent you need to know that I *knew* it was her birthday. We had the parents over, but the party was kinda low-key. Ellery hasn’t been feeling the super-best for the past week and a half or so. It started with her getting a slight cold, which turned into darn-near pneumonia and now the biggest issue is that her little cute tongue is covered in sores and ulcers. And we have no idea why. It’s pretty painful for her to eat, but she still gamely tries to muster up a good attitude. I also notice that she’s got a little trouble talking as well. I think Robyn is debating taking her to the doctor today if they don’t look any better. Whew, you’d think after having two kids prior to Ellery we wouldn’t be the "nervous" parents who take their kids to the doctor for every little thing. But you’d be wrong there.

In lawyer news we haven’t really heard a thing. So, not sure what the deal is with that. Her citizenship seems like it’s going to be a long difficult road.

Apologies for the lack of updates, we’ve just had a lot going on it seems like. I’ll post more when I know more.

    I just happened across your website while looking for my daughter’s orphanage. We’re waiting to go pick up our little girl from Wenzhou SWI (she was born Oct 06). I noticed on the referral page of your wife’s website that the second picture down has our baby in it, lying right behind your daughter. I have pictures of her taken that same day–everything is the same, from the clothing, to the toys, the table, chairs, etc. I was so excited to see it! Our little girl has bilateral cleft lip and palate, so has a scar on her lip from the lip repair. I was scouring your pictures from the orphanage to see if I recognized her. I’ll have to look at them closer tomorrow. Thank you so much for posting these pictures–I feel like I’m walking on cloud nine! Our email is if you have a hankering to contact us. I’d love to hear more about your trip to her orphanage. Your daughter is so cute, by the way!
