This blog chronicles the miracles and struggles of our daughters, Emily and Olivia. Emily was born 15 weeks early and had many complications, but she continues to amaze us! Olivia, born in China with heart complications, is also beating the odds. She joined her forever family (us!) when she was four years old and has been doing wonderfully! UPDATE: We started homeschooling August 2009 :)

Squeaky Shoes

Here in China they sell squeaky baby shoes, presumably to encourage babies who are just learning to walk to take more steps. Since Olivia's not a baby or new to walking, I didn't really plan to buy her any. However, since she's so tiny--most of the 2T clothes I brought are a tad big--it's hard to find any shoes her size here that don't squeak! Since they were only a couple bucks AND the squeakers can be removed (see the removable plug in the heel?), I bought her some squeakers after all.

Loved the video! So funny! I want to get a bunch of squeaky shoes but I can see how they could get annoying after awhile. Olivia looked soooooo cute! She runs cute.
Your upgraded room looks pretty freakin' fancy! lol Where are you staying?
Love to read your posts and see your pictures and videos.
Have a safe flight home.

We are in the Guangzhou airport waiting for our flight. I said "Tan-Tan" to Jack and pointed to the computer. You have never seen him run so fast. He loved watching the video over and over. I can tell he already misses her. Holiday Inn wasn't the same without you this afternoon. Its weird to admit, but I was a little scared without you...

Fly home safe,
