Monday Moanings

Yea, yea, I know it's Tuesday....whatever. It's been that kind of day.

Rainy all day and muddy paws everywhere.

No naps.

Can you believe these two sweet little angels would cause a bit of trouble?! Say it isn't true!

Why must I continue to collect samples of poop when we all know they still have the dreaded parasite!

But I was brave. I collected. Then, there was a leak somewhere. That is bad, very bad.

I have been informed by the experts that I will need to obtain yet another specimen immediately.


Gotta go have some M&M therapy now.


  1. Oh my gosh so beautiful to hear sweet Victorias voice, our son has apraxia and I know how special it is to hear their voices, both your girls have changed so much amazing what the love of a family can do!!!!

  2. I loved hearing her little voice, too! Wow, it makes them even more real to us here in cyber land....and we all adore your family! Please know we rejoice with you over every single word that your girls say and every single goal they make!

    And, as for the chocolate...heehee...at least its the right color for the job your having to redo..right? HA!

  3. You need to post more videos! lol Loved it! So amazing to see how far she has come!

    1. I totally agree...more videos! What adorable little girls, they've come SOOOO FAR!!!

  4. Do you know they say breastmilk kills giardia (true fact!)? I have not been successful at pumping this time around, or I would give you some. Maybe I will try again. I wonder if it still works after freezing- I bet you could get some from milk share if you want to.

  5. That stuff is SOOOO HARD to get rid of! You are going to buy stock in M&M's and medical poop test kits! You'll be rich! :)

  6. How far away is Victoria from walking on her own?
    When she does, you HAVE to take her back to that first doctor! Just to say, "so there!" :)

  7. Oh my goodness, that video was such a gift. Thank you so much for letting us hear them talk. And those pawprints? That was mud from outside right? Not one of the specimens that got away?

  8. Great video! Your girls are all beautiful :)

  9. Oh yay, a video!!! How precious! I love Victoria's expression when her sister asked her what elephants say. More videos!!! I just love seeing them in action, such cuties!

  10. Yay! What a wonderful little video! Thank you!

  11. God Lord!!! What kind of parasites live into your girls!?! They must be as big as Chihuahua!!! I've been reading your blog for a couple of months and I spotted that getting rid of unwelcome guests seem to be quite of a battle for you!

    Good luck, I hope they don't get too uncomfortable with them!

  12. You Go Victoria! What apraxia? She can talk with her mouth full! I'd say she right on target!!!

  13. Wow! You go baby girl! She's doing amazing at talking!

  14. I think this is the first video I've seen!! Now you have to keep them coming :) I am amazed at her speech and how far she has come. Don't you wish you could sent this video back to the orphanage and ask them if they think she has a soul now. I'd love to see the looks on their faces when they see that this precious angel not only has a soul...but a beautiful shining spirit. You have an amazing family, thank you for sharing them with us readers!!

  15. Hi
    My name is Jenna. Your girls are a brave courageous fighter. All Your kids are a special miracle from god, a gift from above, earthly angel,your girls are a smilen hero.

    I was born with a rare life threatening disease, and have 14 other medical conditions, and developmental delays.

    I wrote this poem

    Each of us are Special

    Each of us different,

    No one is the same

    Each of are us are unique in our own way,

    Those of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.

    Those who of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.

    It doesn't matter what others say

    we are special anyway.

    What is forty feet and sings? the school chior http://www.miraclechamp.webs.com

  16. Wow!!! She, they are as amazing as their mama. Great job!!!

  17. Around our kennel/rescue we have a saying "Giardia is forever" :(

    We've been closed now for about a year (had two babies and a miscarriage of a third), so I'm trying to remember what we used to finally get rid of it. Every employee got it since our 'specialty' rescue dog was basset hounds and hound mixes. :)

    Happy birthday btw!
