FFFF #24 -- Bubbles

Ok, just to explain this post, FFFF stands for "Family Foto Fun Friday."
Donna at Double Happiness started this and every friday posts a new challange! We have been following Gwen and Maddie (Double Happiness) for awhile and now that we are up and running we are going to jump in and play!!! This week's challenge is Bubbles, since that is one of our favorite topics and we have lots of pics of bubbles just taken in the last two weeks this will be an easy one!!

Allie did wonderful and had her checkup yesterday and is perfectly fine!! After the last few months of several ear infections we decided to do the tubes and hopefully this will end all the ear infections.

Easter Egg Hunt

We belong to a local playgroup which consists of children that have been adopted from China and their siblings. We usually meet once a month on a saturday to let the girls play together or go some place special.

In March we met at a park and had an "Easter Egg Hunt"!!

The girls had lots of fun and they fed the ducks and played on the playground.

Here is the group that came that day:)

2nd Day at Gymnastics

Ok, this was our 2nd time at Gymnastics, we sure like it alot!!!

This set of pics, Allie walked on the balance beam and then was flipped in the air and landed on her feet!!

They did front rolls on mats and then was taught how to raise their arms and say "TA-DA"!!

She hung from the uneven parallel bars and then they flipped over!!

This time they stood on the bottom bar and reached for the top bar and then turned around and jumped down!! Don't forget the "TA-DA"

We are learning alot in this class, Allie jumps around the house instead of walking, of course for those who know us also knows she has down this since 15 months old. She is always jumping and doing front rolls across the sofa or the floor. She flips from our laps over backwards and will do it until you make her stop.
P.S. I am just learning how to blog so any ideas or comments on how to make collages are welcome. Thanks to all!

First Day at Gymnastics

This is our first day of Gymnastics!! I got a teacher to start a 2 yr old class, since we have nothing in our area. The teacher, Trisha, told me if I found 2 - 3 girls she would have a class so I did, some of our friends from school!! Emily and Madison. The girls are really having fun. Here are pics from the first day last week.

Gotcha Day Fun

Also on Feb 21, We thought it would be fun to see if her clothes that she came in last year still fit. Well not only did they still fit they are still too big!! The shoes still fit also, they fit perfectly. She has gained 7lbs since coming home but the outfit was way too big last year and now just a little!! She had fun dressing in it and playing peek a boo. When she came home she weighed 17lbs and was 28 1/2 inches tall, she could still where some 9 month clothes but mostly 12 month. She wore a size 4 shoe. Now, she is 24.6 lbs and 33 inches tall. She is in 18 to 24 month clothes, depending what it is. She needs the 24 month for the length in her legs. She is wearing size 5 shoes and almost needs a 5 1/2. Here are the pics from that we took that day!!

Gotcha Day Celebration

We had our "Gotcha Day" a few weeks ago!! We actually celebrated twice, once with family and friends a few days early with cake and presents and then on the actual day, we went out to eat, of course Chinese, with close friends.
Here is Daddy holding me and my friends Elise and Emily with my sister Hannah in the back!!
