Okay, so maybe I got it backwards... Most people do "Wordless Wednesday" posts consisting of a photo (or set of photos) that speak for themselves in some way. I was going to do that today (really, I was!) but couldn't find the right photo for it... so instead I'll do a little catching up with some photos that don't necessarily speak for themselves.
So, without further ado... some photos and words for a Wednesday post....!
The photo above may look a bit odd to you, but for us it's just another bit of the Pipsqueak cutely doing something silly just for the sake of doing something silly. (This particular example was from late February but is just one of many.) If I remember correctly, AJ's sweatshirt was a little loose, and Miri had been playing "peekaboo" with Grandma, so of course it was a perfectly natural thing for the Pipsqueak to walk up to Mommy and pull her sweatshirt over her head! She had the last laugh on Mommy, too -- while she was under there, the little joker untied AJ's sweatpants!
One of the Pipsqueak's favoritest things to do (Dude, you know that's not a real word, don't you?) is to bounce on Grandma & Grandpa's bed. It's king size, with a squishy foam topper under the sheet -- a perfect playground for an extra-bouncy little bundle of energy like Miri! Any blurring in the above photos is UNintentional; she just tends to move too fast for the camera to keep up!
And that's it for this particular Wordy Wednesday... I'll post again in a day or two, I've got a new story to tell y'all...
My niece joined the family on July 12th, 2010. This special young lady's mother is my younger sister, which in classic Chinese culture makes me her Jiu Jiu (舅舅-- thus the title of this blog. Here I intend to semi-regularly post reflections, thoughts, stories, and assorted whathaveyous pertaining to our trip to China, adoption in general, and (mostly) watching my niece grow up. Since the web is a very public place, I will attempt to maintain my family's privacy while telling the story... but I invite you to follow the blog and come along for the adventure!
