Mama said there'd be days like this...

Crying before she ever saw the doctor

Today was Sophia's medical exam.  I was planning on leaving the "boys" at the hotel, but Levi insisted on coming to make sure Sophia would not be scared when the doctor listened to her heart.  :) We entered the doctor's office with our group, and the place was abuzz.  Imagine a room (with no A/C) full of screaming, terrified children who are visiting the doctor for probably the first time ever.  This puts a kid on edge for sure, and Sophia was no exception.  She screamed her way though most of her three exams, but I'm happy to say that she passed the necessary tests to receive her visa.  One step closer to coming home.

After our stressful morning, we all took a good nap and then headed out for the activity that makes all girls feel!!!  I purchased a few (ok, more than a few) future Gotcha Day gifts,
Chinese dresses for Sophia for the next several years, and six pairs of squeaky shoes in all colors and sizes.  They were "buy five, get one free" and I'm a sucker for a good deal! LOL! Adam says we may need an extra suitcase to haul home all our cargo!
Headed out shopping!!!


  1. Good news is...suitcases for all that extra cargo are quite inexpensive, too! I remember...'cause I needed a couple. :)

  2. Your picture was seriously cracking me up! So so glad Miss Sophia got a good report! Can't wait to get y'all home! :)

  3. LOVING all of her bows!!! Precious!!!
