We were sitting at breakfast this morning
and I looked at Scott and said,
"Oh my goodness honey, it's your birthday."
We had gotten everyone dressed and ready for breakfast
without even thinking of what day it was.
I even left his card at home. :/
EK asked me today if he got TWO girls
to love for his birthday...
of course I said YES! :)
The day went pretty well considering all we squeezed in.
SJ was very quiet all day especially
when we were at Civil Affairs with orphanage staff.
She played pretty well early afternoon
but became very sleepy.
She feel asleep for about an hour and when she woke up,
she starting crying and pretty much cried the afternoon away.
She wouldn't even look at Scott
and didn't want him to come near her.
This went on for about 4 hours.
We ordered Pizza Hut for Scott's bd party with a little cake.
We sang happy birthday and celebrated together.
I think that was the best pizza I have ever had!!!
After the party, we took a walk outside.
When we came back in,
we let the girls play for a while.
SJ made a complete 360...
she was happy, playful, and verbal.
She had the best time playing beach ball with Scott.
Deep belly laughs were pouring out of her.
She was jabbering in Chinese
and copying what ever we told her to say in English.
I looked at Scott in the midst of all this happiness
and said, "Happy birthday!"
It was one of the sweetest bds he has ever had!!! :)
