Thankful for Jingle Bell :)

We are trying so hard to call her ShayleeJoy
but Jing, JingJing, Jingy, or Jingle
is usually what comes out.
If you ask her if her name is SJ,
now she says... Jingle Bell~
thus her favorite song right now.

Today for some reason she began
calling Scott and I
Daddy and Mommy instead of
Baba and Mama.
We are SO thankful this little one is home
safe and sound this Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to ALL
and more to come later!!!


  1. If you're like me, you use pet names as often as given names anyway. Our adopted son didn't respond to his Chinese name when we spoke to him in China, but if I said honey, he knew who I was talking to, so I don't think I called him anything else for at least six weeks. The grandsons are honey, sweetheart, and pumpkin :-) I also love the name Jing-Jing, by the way.

    Have a wonderful day,

  2. Love it! I'm thinking the name "jingle bell" might stick, at least through the holidays!!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Yeah, I think JingJing is SOOO cute - it would be hard for me to call her by her "real" name :-)

  4. I'm so glad that she is a part of our family now! She is such a sweet girl and I love seeing her and Max play and hug each other!
