Weekend update & GREAT news!

Hi Everyone,
Janie here....mommy isn't looking, so I decided to post a new update about me and my sister! First here is some things I did this weekend:

Went to visit my Aunt Charlene, cousin Becky (I guess that would be second cousin), and my other family member Mary. I'm not sure of the exact relation--I'm thinking it must be 3rd cousin. Also, Taylor was in town visiting and celebrating his birthday! We ate lunch at 5 guys burgers. 

Here I am showing everyone my nose. I love to name off my body parts. 
(So far I can point to and say my nose, eyes, ears, mouth, teeth, head, fingers, toes, belly button, elbow, and I'm working on my knee)
Everyone likes to take pictures of me--so I thought I would take some of you!
Went back to Aunt Charlene's house and played!
Saying "Bye Bye" to Mary

Now for the exciting news about my little sister, Lexie!!! This morning when mommy got me up she told me that Lexie's first ruling came in! Yep, you read that right-just 11 days after the court hearing! Mommy says it must be an all-time record. Of course, she must be forgetting the past 7 weeks of re-scheduled courts....but all of that is behind us! Lexie is going to be coming home soon. Mommy says we now have to wait for the final ruling and then we will get an appointment with the AIT and go get Lexie. She told me that I went thru all the same process-I don't really remember any of that, but if she says so then I guess it happened.

She also told me about the big plane we are going to go on--and she told me all the things she is bringing to entertain me for the LONG flight. Then she told me that I am going to get to see all my loved ones in Taiwan again AND I will get to see my birth mom again. 

Mommy seems very emotional about that. She is glad that she will have the opportunity to ask my birth mom some more questions. I hear her praying for my birth mom a lot. Mommy always prays that my birth mom has peace and comfort in her life. I am not sure if I will get to see my birth dad again or not? 

Well, I am not allowed to show you a picture of Lexie yet--but I can give you a sneak peak. Everyone says she looks alot like me!

Congratulations on your 1st ruling! So glad that after all of those delays, you are finally getting closer to boarding that plane to Taiwan. Can't wait to see pictures of Lexie. Those eyes are beautiful and makes me want to see more! So happy for you and Janie!
