Simple things make me happy..

.....like sending Claire another care package. I love packing it all up and thinking about her in the outfits, or playing with the toys we send. The flower dress is the first dress her Daddy bought her. But since we aren't sure if it's going to fit her or not(now or when she comes home), we had to send it. There are also two other short outfits, socks, a bunny rattle, and the most expensive(at least I thought) bearista bear from Starbucks. I guess we shouldn't buy her stuffed animals from Starbucks.

Oh and I know I shouldn't love, love, love this bib. But I had to register for it and my sister got it for me...errr... I mean for Claire. You know she'll be sporting that ALL THE TIME!!! j/k...well sorta. Heck I'm not going to apologize I really do like. What can I say? Counting down the days in the "under six weeks" timeline til travel approval. I can't wait!!!

HI Ann,
Molly here, mom to Malone from Taiwan....
Love the bib...I remember the first time someone bought me a bib that said something about mom on it and I just stared at it for days thinking...that means ME!! that "mom" is ME!!! But still nothing compared to when he was actually wearing it and I was looking down at him thinking....holy crap I AM your mom! Totally amazing. I am so happy for you guys and cannot wait to hear that you have travel news and that you are on your way to Claire! I stll think about that day we met Malone all the time...it was the closest to majic I have ever seen.
Feel free to ask any travel questions!
Molly

Funny bib! And this sentence made my heart melt: The flower dress is the first dress her Daddy bought her.

Hi Ann, it is those little things that are the best and especially when you can celebrate with others who also care about the little things (besides this is huge... being able to pack gifts for your dear one... MONDO HUGE!) Anyways, eekkk... travel countdown! So exciting! Oh and since you found my husband...as my daughter says, "You get 3 chickens!" We have no idea what that means but she always gives us virtual chickens when we accomplish things! haha Don't cha wish your mama was hot like mine! Yeah! You have to sing it too.

Hey Claire's gonna need bibs and I think they all need to say "My Mama's a knockout!" LOL! It makes you just feel good as your little one's flicking peas at you and smushing sweet potato into their hair. Hehehe! You just wait! LOL! I can't wait to hear your upcoming travel news!
