Happy Birthday, A-Mae

Anna Mae is now 4 years old! What an exciting time in all of our lives. Anna is so full of life and happiness. She’s also developing in her memory and emotions. The other day she saved a cookie from school for mommy to eat (a feat in itself to get it home in one piece). Mommy didn’t immediately eat the cookie, and the next day Anna reminded mommy of it by asking, “Did you eat the cookie yet?” When mommy said no, Anna said as she visibly became emotional about it, “But I saved it for you!”

Anna got to have 3 birthday parties!


Her Chinese school threw her a birthday party.


She celebrated alone with mom and dad.

And then we threw her a party with her friends at the house.


Oh, and Jacquelyn made a cake that was simply out of control!

    Happy Birthday Anna Mae! Can’t believe how big you have gotten! We still remember you from back in Beijing as a bundle of blankets and then, in a blink learning, learning to walk. Congratulations to Mom and Dad!

      Thanks for the post! It’s great to hear from you! I hope all is well. I was just organizing my wrsp music today and found one that said, “Wendy Intro”. Those were some good times.
