Again, to long since last post

Well, I did it again. It has been a long time since my last post. Where to begin...

LilyRose has had a bad cold since last week. She is doing much better now. We had a busy week. Tuesday I was in Target with my mother and LilyRose and I ran into a woman that we met in Hong Kong on the way home from China who lives in my town. Hi Barbara, Dave and Maya!!! Anyway, we were all so tired at our first meeting we didn't exchange numbers. I knew that we would run into each other somewhere eventually. So we did. Anyway, she had asked if I was a member of the FCC LI group and I told her I was. She asked if I was going to the Playdate on Thursday with some of the mothers. I told her no, that I didn't know anything about it. So she invited me to meet them there. It was at a local mall here. So LilyRose and I went. There were I believe 7 moms and 7 little girls. What a really nice bunch of ladies. They made me feel very welcomed and a part of the group, and the babies were all just gorgeous. OMG, each and everyone of them. LilyRose had a great time playing with the kids and it was a great time for all of us. Then they started talking about the "mom's night out" that was the next night. Barbara asked if I was going and I told her no b/c I didn't know where it was and didn't know a soul there and that I didn't respond to the email. Well Jayne said I could go b/c she is the one I had to respond to so she noted I was going and that was that.

So Friday I was really excited about getting out for a few hours and it gave Anthony a chance to sit with the KIDS (still loves the way that sounds) and it gave me a chance to unwind for a while. My friend Bruny called me early on Friday to say hello and I told her the story b/c she joined the FCC LI group the same day I did. So I told her I was going to "Mom's Night Out" and she told me she would be there. I was so happy b/c I haven't seen Bruny in a long time. We keep trying to make plans for her and her husband to come over to meet LilyRose and it hasn't happened yet. Anyway, I meet her there and I have to tell you that I had the best time. Something like 30 women and everyone is super friendly and made all of us newcomers feel so welcomed and at ease. I have to say a big thank you to Barbara for bring it up to me and asking me to go and I have to say thanks to Vicky who I met on Thursday b/c she gave me 2 of the cutest outfits that didn't fit her daughter and they had tags on them still. LilyRose will look super cute in them. Vicky's daughter is so very beautiful. So, we ate and talked and laughed and it was a fun night out. I have to laugh, b/c who would have ever thought that I would think sitting in a church hall with a bunch of ladies that I didn't know was fun? Well, I did and I can't wait to go again. So, THANK YOU to the FCC LI LADIES for a great night. I look forward to doing it again.

I want to say Welcome home to my friends Rebecca, Andy & Nola Ann. They got home on Wednesday with their little girl from China and I got to talk with Rebecca today and I was very happy to hear that all is well. I can't wait to see her and Nola and Grace sometime this week.

Tomorrow is LilyRose's first ENT appt. Hopefully, they will start to clean out the massive amounts of wax out of her ears. Anthony and I have been doing our best to clean them out with the instructions from the specialist, but she still has so much in them. So wish her well for tomorrow and I will post when we get home as to what they say. Until next time...

Lisa....I'm jealous of your "Mom's night out." It would be so much fun to set around with other ladies who have BTDT. I'm anxious to hear about LilyRose's ENT appointment. Our Audrey (who was a NSN adoption) is best friends with her ENT. I am constantly amazed about how much gunk he can dig out of her little ears.
