And the winner is....
Wednesday, January 03, 2007
We were having some fun last night looking at some of the videos, slideshows, and just pictures of people who have already come home with their children. It's sort of bittersweat though since we don't yet even know what our child will look like. And I try not to imagine it too much because the image of Brezhnev with those huge bushy eyebrows keeps popping into my head (now there's a scary thought).

But anyway, some of my personal fav's from the viewing are:

Elle's little one's (aka Pickle) word and sign language video. I am honestly amazed how many words that kid knows at his age. And then he knows how to sign them as well!!!

She's not yet home, but the Cupcake soccer girl video, although she doesn't actually kick the ball, her dad just keeps swinging Cupcake back and forth and her little legs smack the ball around.

Melissa's little one who is clearly going to be a lady killer. Everyone says it, but this little guy is an extremely good looking little boy with movie star eyes.

Lauri's little girl is another one that is just a beautiful child. Lauri put up some very cool slideshows that are just fun to look at because you can see how much she's grown in such a short time.

I really need to add this blog to my blogroll because it has one of the funniest video's I've seen so far. Two little girls playing the tuba. And yes, they actually can make sound out of this huge instrument.

Honorable mention (because it isn't a kid pic) goes to:

Tricia's dog Thani in a graduation hat for passing obedience class.

And since every parent has a near fanatical feeling about how beautiful their kids are, please keep in mind that we only looked at a few and mainly from families that just got home. So please don't barrage me with comments that I'm an idiot for not mentioning your kid.

Besides, I already know I'm an idiot, so there!

    I'm really honored! This morning I dropped Thani off at "Four Paws Ranch". It's an off-leash day care & overnight stay facility which we are hoping to use when we travel to Russia. I was so proud of his "going to daycare" but sad at the same time to leave him all day with a bunch of big dogs. (Mind you, he's 75 lbs) Report on my blog tonight! I can't stop thinking about him.

    How am I going to do this with our two girls?
