Let those eyes sparkle and shine...Never a tear, baby of mine

Well I thought we had gotten over the sickness, but apparently Qiana likes the love and attention, and has decided to be sick again....okay maybe it's not by choice...oh poor girl.

Her nose is so freakin' stuffy it's painful to hear her try and breathe. I hope this time doesn't last as long as before, cause more than anything it just isn't awesome watching your child in pain.

But that's just a sidenote for this post.

I really wanted to take the time to write down how grateful I am for my baby Qiana.

People tell me all the time "you know your're pretty lucky right?" when I tell them about Qiana and her easy disposition...and I just want to say YES I KNOW.

I KNOW it may not be normal for a 5 month old to be good for a whole 11 hour car ride, only crying once and easily soothed with a simple hand laid on her face.


I KNOW it may not be normal for a child to give me these smiles all day long and only whimper when she is hungry or getting tired.

My favorite thing Qiana is doing lately...pilates! It's the funniest thing. I don't know if this picture captures it, but she lays on her back and lifts her head and feet as if doing a "core" crunch. She thinks she is sooooooo funny.

Oh, that is a bummer that she's sick again! I think 17 people living in a house for the weekend was a bit of a germ fest.

I love Qiana, too. She's so sweet and just lights up the room. I am so happy for you that you've had such a great experience with her. You were made for each other!

She really is the best baby! And you are such a good Mom. I'm so glad that you have each other. I think she has brought out so many good qualities in you.

I have to respond to your American Idol analysis - I pretty much agree with you except I love Adam. I don't know what it is cuz he doesn't sport the sort of look that I go for but I love his voice and he is such a seasoned performer. Its weird but I love him. I hope he sings some ballads. I don't think they gave Matt enough kudos for following Adam's performance and keeping the audience entertained. It was a tough spot but he did a great job. Why in the world are they not ripping Megan up one side and down the other for her totally awkward dance moves and the sour note she hit at the end of Black Horse and a cherry tree and the caw-caw at the end of the horrible Rockin Robin performance? Let's be fair and not play favorites shall we? I think she's beautiful and I actually like her voice. She needs to go off somewhere and figure out who she is and work on her act. Why are they not telling her that? Scott? Please! Do they really need to play the handicap card? And putting him in the group performance? Could it have been any more awkward? Let's all sit and we will just tell him where to look. I don't recall seeing Stevie Wonder in a group song and dance performance before. And Anoop... I really wanted to like him. First of all, he needs a makeover. He looks like a mathlete! My Prerogative? That was downright comical. He seems nice, though. I wish him luck and I would like to see him back after his makeover. Paula is the biggest idiot!!!! Who cares what she thinks? Ahhhh - I can't take it.

Oh and Qiana is adorable but everyone knows that!

Qiana is so adorable! I miss you both! Hope she gets felling better soon!

p.s. yeah I'm not hopping on the "I love Adam Lambert" train quite yet either... and probably won't be until he learns how to keep his tong in his mouth!
