Okay.. I know it has been FOREVER since I updated the blog.. I have been informed that I must continue to keep it up.. So I will try to bring you all back up to date.

We left Guatemala on the 6th of June. Saying good-bye was horrible, as we all knew it would be. We are going to try to go back around Christmas time. At least Randi Jo and I are going to.

Since we have been home Jazlynn has adjusted amazingly. We still can not believe how well things have gone. She is still on the same sleep schedule,she is eating well and I do think she is getting tired of all the different people holding her and making over her. She has gotten to the point where she looks for me and whimpers whenever they are holding her. Considering the amount of people who have been here that is only to be expected..

I will try to do better at updating.. but for now here are some pictures . They are in no particular order as I can not figure this upload thing out.

This is Jaz at home. her favorite thing to do is dump the toys and sit in the middle of them all. This was Daddy's first day doing her hair. Isn't it cute?
She is just being cute here.. It really isn't a hard thing for her.

At the hotel in Guatemala.
Jaz loves these puffs. It didn't take her long to figure out how to open them.

Jaz sitting with Bandar. She loves him. It was fairly easy for her to wrap him around her finger.

This is my favorite dress of hers.. Aunt Beckah bought it for her. She was getting ready for the Dr. The Dr said she is doing great. She is right exactly where she needs to be. There are still some concerns about her eye. We have known this since she was 2 months old. so it was no big shock.. The Dr is also concerned about her head size. It is way to small. She is sure it is because of the shapeing of it. But we will wait until she is a year old for both issues to see if they correct themselves if they haven't by then she will have to see a specialist. These are both minor things we are not to worried about yet.

Here is Jazlynn at the airport with her cousins,Sammy and Preston. I wish we had gotten a picture of her outfit. Randi Jo bought it for her. It said "Are these people really my relatives?" Too cute..

I just took this video and just had to share it.. Hope you all enjoy it. Can't wait to get her home so you can all see her.

Antigua and Embassy Day!

Well I really don't even know where to start. It has been a very busy last few days. On Sunday we all went to Antigua. Jose,Adriana,Maria Jose and Grandma and of course our whole family.

We had a wonderful time. Lots of fun.. Even Justin who didn't even want to come to Guatemala loved it. He is still lots shyer than Randi Jo but he had fun. Randi Jo ,of course, has adopted everyone she has seen.. We have the international Futbol teams staying here at the hotel. I think there is around 10 different teams here. Well the USA team invited her to come watch them play Wed. or Thurs. I haven't decided weather we are going or not...

We spent yesterday after the embassy appt at the mall.. Seems it is coler here than I had planned on. I did not bring enough long pants for Jazlynn and all the shoes I brought are to small so we had to make some purchases. But we are all taken care of now.

Tomorrow Erick and his friend Diego are going to the zoo with us. (maybe Maria Jose as well) then tomorrow evening we are going to supper with Adriana and Jose. So another busy day planned.

I am posting three days of pictures. So sorry there are so many but I think they are well worth the wait..

For those who have been waiting to see.. This is the quilt I made for Adriana. It is the first one I have ever made,so it didn't turn out perfect but it was ok.

This is the kids with Estuardo from the marriott, He is the best! He has been more than helpful for everyone of my stays. Very knowledgeable. Speaks very good english. He was wonderful with the kids.

Getting ready for Embassy Day! If I look American they'll have to let me in!
Aren't I just the cutest thing ever? Lovin that smile.
Standing against my Daddy!

Jose,Justin,Randi Jo and Maria Jose in Antigua
Justin was in Heaven exploring all of the ruins. If he could climb it or crawl in it he was happy.

Jazlynn on top of the hill overlooking Antigua.

Jazlynn first thing in the morning. WOW this hair has issues.

Jose at the Jade Factory
Adriana and Joe being goofy. The little boy beside them was precious. He was shining shoes and saw the pictures being taken so he wanted in them. we have lots of pictures of him. So adorable.. I wanted to bring him along.
Grandma getting a face massage at the Macadamian plantation (something like that). All of us girls got them. it was cool

Jose showing Randi Jo how it is done.
Maria Jose and Randi Jo. We all had a laugh at their expense. Maria Jose doesn't speak english and Randi Jo doesn;t speak Spanish,but they didn't shut up all day. No one would have ever known. They had a great day.

They are both beautiful girls..
