First Birthday Celebration - Ever!


Jie Jie turned 8 years old today!
This was the first time her birthday was ever celebrated.

Mama made special, fun cupcakes so Jie Jie could celebrate with the daycare kids. They were very happy for Jie Jie.





2 presents today...

Rollerskates and a Barbie Car!

The birthday girl is Queen for the Day and got to pick her favorite place to eat.

The ladies who worked here, love Jie Jie and speak Mandarin to her.

Jie Jie ate ALL of this and dessert
(jello, ice cream, sesame ball and two orange slices).


Some basic updates:
Jie Jie is 42.25" tall and weighed 37 pounds in January. She probably weighs a tiny bit more now. She continues to eat, sleep, socialize, play, learn, etc... very well. We are connecting with more specialists and another hospital later this month. It's not my first choice, but it's a step in the right direction. I will be applying to Shriner's for her back and feet. I hope they accept us and can help Jie Jie's foot. I hear they perform miracles. We don't need quite a miracle, but being able to improve it would be great.

My son gets his care from Shriner's Hospital. I am sure they will accept Jie Jie. You will find it to be a very "loving" hospital. The one we go to is full of happy employees and patients. We look forward to every visit. Much love to and your growing family with all the wonderful changes!
