We are also glad to welcome Spring! Winter has been long and cold this year. The grass is starting to kick back and the trees are beginning to flower a little....

So she loved every minute of the game, minus the 500 decibel horn that went off 5 times when the Blues scored. She even made it on the jumbo tron, full face shot! We are working on getting that video from the Blues folks.
We also had our 3 month visit from our Holt social worker last night and she was just amazed at how well Sophie is doing and at her level of vocabulary and intelligence for being 2! Of course we take ALL the credit as parents :-). Our next visit from Holt is in June, so it will be fun to see where she is then! Below are the pics from Sunday at the game. LET'S GO BLUES!!!!

Well the language thing is in full force, new words every day with Sophie. Honestly we never thought she would catch on this fast. We are learning that she is so very smart and understands most of what we say. The obvious NO from a two year old. 90% of the time it is English 10% in Vietnamese. But here in the past few days, she now can say her own name when you ask her. It sounds more like YO-FEE but hey! We take the small steps. When her what my name is, she says Poppa and the same with Tricia it is Mommy or Momma. Below is a video of her this evening drawing on her aqua doodle. She LOVES to draw and paint.

She has had wonderful medical care at St. Luke's in St. Louis. After one week, she is set to be discharged and fly back to South Carolina with my step-father Top who has been here since early last week.
Tricia has been SUPER MOMMY taking care of Sophie, doing everything...So thanks to my wonderful wife!!!
Thanks also to my oldest sister Diehnee for flying in to help. It was her fist time to meet Sophie, but not the best reason to come! She is mom to four, so thanks Caroline, Ro, Pete and Jack....as well as Chris!! Special prayers are needed for Mom aka Moots to Sophie. We love you Moots!!!!! GET BETTER SOON!!!!!!!!
Sophie makes a trip to see Moots and give her kisses...
