Sorry this is a little late but we hosted Thanksgiving so I was pretty busy getting everything bought and then made. It was one of the best Thanksgivings we've ever had. Asha loved the food and it was just really nice family time. Asha loves having family over and just kept going around the table saying everyone's names like wow they are all here!! It was so cute!!

Here's a few pictures from that day!!
I love this picture of Asha with her daddy. It was so nice that we got to relax more and spend some quality family time together.

I just love this little face. I think this is the picture I'm going to send out in Christmas cards.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

She Lives Her Life Upside Down!!

My girl must think she's a bat or something. She literally lives her life upside down. She hangs upside down from our bed she hangs over the back of the couch upside down and she hangs over our legs when we have them on the coffee table. She loves to be upside down and here are some pictures to prove how much. This is her new favorite thing to do!

She looks like a little bat just hanging there. I hope our counter holds up!!

Curious About Lurkers!!

Now that I have the Site Meter I've realized that more people are reading this blog than I thought because not many people post.

I would just like for any lurker to please post and let me know where your from (if you don't mind) and why you like to read Asha's blog. Also if there are any questions you may have about adoption or our adoption situation feel free to ask and I will try to answer all questions.

We just got home from the doctor. I took Asha to get her flu shot and the nurses were so amazed by her they loaded her up with stickers when it was all done.

One nurse held her hands and the other nurse was going to give her the shot. When the second nurse stuck the needle in Asha's arm Asha just looked at it and then with her right hand grabed the needle out of her arm handed it to the nurse and said "ok done". It freaked the nurses out that she was so fast and so strong that she could pull away from the nurse holding her and grab the needle away from the other nurse. Asha didn't cry, didn't flinch or anything.

Asha is VERY tough and it takes alot to make her cry but I thought for sure she would cry a little. I am so very impressed by her right now. You wouldn't even know that she got a shot at all today. What a big girl she is!!

My Girl Is So Funny!!

Asha amazes me every day with some of the things she says.
Last night we were in the van coming home from grocery shopping and she was kind of yelling "aaahhhhhhhh" and I said in an exasperated tone "Asha D!!" and she says "What I'm right here". Dakota and I just cracked up laughing.
I tend to call her "Boo" or "Bug" shortened versions of bugaboo. Well she thinks I call her "pooh" like from Tigger and Pooh so she has taken to calling people "pooh". One day she walks up to her dad and says "hi piglet". He started laughing and asked why she was calling him piglet so I explained.
She is also very considerate. She will walk up to me when I'm doing my household chores and ask me "You need help?" Sometimes I let her help if it's easy and she is more than happy to pitch in.
And apparently to her when I fold laundry it just looks like I throw clothes around. She likes to help with laundry so she will help pull it out of the dryer and then she pushes it to the spot in the living room where I sit and fold clothes and she will sit in my spot and start throwing clothes all over the place. It is the funniest thing to watch.

Here she is sitting in her favorite position from gymnastics. They call it the butterfly because the move their knees up and down like a butterfly.

I've been tagged by skyangel from Faith, Hope and Love. Listed on the side.

Rules: Once tagged, you must link to the person who tagged you. Then post the rules before your list, and list 8 random things about yourself. At the end of the post, you must tag and link to 8 other people, visit their sites, and leave a comment letting them know they’ve been tagged.

1. I have an incredible 6th sense about things. I knew in High School that I would adopt a child before I even found out that I was unable to have children. I tend to know when really bad things are going to happen. Sometimes I can even sense when certain people are going to call me.

2. I love to read. I used to like scary stories like Stephen King & Dean Koontz but now I'm into more love stories and stories about the Amish. We used to have alot of Amish around our town and they always fascinated me. I am now re reading the Twilight series and can't wait for the 4th book to come out next year.

3. I still live in the small town that I grew up in. It is an amazing town with an amazing school system that I want my kids to enjoy.

4. I helped gain custody of my step son when he was 3 years old. I've been in his life since he was 8 months old. I married my husband a few weeks shy of dating for a year. We got married at 20 years old and have been married for 10 years.

5. I am indecisive. I can almost always see both sides of a situation so it makes it very hard for me to take sides or even make a choice. It drives my husband nuts.

6. I love babies. I mean I REALLY love babies. When I was in High School working at a local grocery store I would go over and pinch the cheeks of all the cute little babies in line. I just couldn't help myself. I love those soft little squishy cheeks. My poor Asha gets hers kissed and played with daily.

7. I have always had friends who were older than me or friends that were guys. I always bonded more with guys than girls because there is too much drama and gossip with girls. When we got married I wanted my maid of honor to be a guy because I didn't have any girlfriends to ask. I have always gotten along better with woman who were older than me since I spent alot of time around my mom's friends growing up. I was always more mature than other people my age.

8. I don't like talking about myself that's why this blog is about my daughter. Finding 8 things to say about myself was very hard for me. I kept coming up with things about Asha and having to erase them.

I will now tag 8 other people if they haven't been tagged yet. I am tagging Adventures in Mommyland, Away 2 Me, Peps Thoughtful Spot, Kathy's Korner, Doubly Blessed, & Minnow Musings. I know it's not 8 but everyone else I read has already been tagged.
