Where did the last 3 1/2 months go???

I recently was reminded (thanks, Alyson!!) that I'm behind on my posting... so here are a few photos from the past few months. I'll try to be better at posting... and at actually logging onto Facebook... and looking at other people's blogs.

Some cute things Kavanna has said:

When I told her she was cute, she said, "No cute, mama. Beautiful!!"

Her song lyrics: "Row, row, row your boat, gently down the street..."

Every third sentence is, "My do it! My do it!"

She told Ariel, referring to me, "No Ariel's mother. My mother!"
When Ariel said, "If mommy is not my mother, then where is my mother?"
Kavanna thought for a moment and then said, "China!"

Ariel said, "Are we sisters?"
"No," replied Kavanna.
Ariel persisted. "We're not? We're not sisters?"
"No, said Kavanna. "Princesses."

And there you have it.

Ariel is doing really well. She switched into a new school that is much smaller than her previous one, with an art emphasis, and is thriving. She has a whole new group of friends and her grades are awesome (straight As, yeah!!).

Grandma Lori moves in with us on Friday. We're excited!

What does a nice Jewish Chinese girl do on Easter? Hunt for eggs, of course!

Good to hear from you. Can't believe how much Kavanna has grown. Both of your girls are adorable!

Hi Nina! Zoe here. Good to see you and Kavanna and your family! Our girls are getting bigger, not little babies anymore. Alexa likes to role play these days: She is either Dr. Alexa White, and does a check-up on you with her doctor tools, or she is Chef Alexa White and cooks up a yummy meal for you. We're enjoying the spring, and now it will be summer in another day. Our second summer together. Seems so long ago at times yet just like almost yesterday some days when we were in China. Will try and send some photos soon. Posted a note for you on Facebook.
