Day 32, 02/01/2009, Xiao Min, No Training Wheels!

Today, Xiao Min rode her bike without training wheels! It was so exciting. the day before we took the pedals off of her sister's old bike. Then she practiced scooting around practicing her balance. She caught on quickly and when she got her bike (minus training wheels), she just took off. She did it!

Day 31, 01/31/2009 Birthday celebration

February 1st is Meng Jiao's birthday. This year we celebrated on January 31st so that her aunt and uncle could join the celebration. She turns 8 tomorrow. You may notice her hair amongst the candles. Yes, we had a scare and her hair was singed. Luckily it wasn't a worse situation. Hard to believe our Meng Jiao is 8! She got a new bicycle for her birthday had a blast with it.

Day 28, 01/10/2009, Mario Kart!

Today I found Mario Kart for the Wii!!! I have been looking for this since November and just stumbled upon it at Target. This is the cutest game. The girls love this game and had a blast playing. It is a game that they can play together and it fits their skill level.

Day 27, 01/27/2009, Visit with Oral Surgeon

Today Xiao Min had her first appointment with the oral surgeon that will close the alveolar cleft (split in her gum-line) in her mouth. The surgeon is the head of a the department at a large university based medical facility, so I have great comfort that the best surgeon will be doing the surgery. I was afraid that we had messed up in the timing of getting hooked up with this surgeon, but it turned out it is fine. We will return in June to be evaluated then. They need to time the surgery after her front baby teeth come out. We are hoping the surgery can be done this summer while she is out of school. They will take a piece of bone from her hip and graft it into the split. She will spend a night in the hospital and be out of school two weeks. It will be the most painful surgery she will have.
In the picture she is showing off the goodies they gave her (see the ring and the glasses). Kids are suckers for this stuff.
