Where Do Babies Come From?



I just have to share this before I forget to. Ella loves to talk about her story...the story of how we became a forever family. I made a younger child's version of her lifebook for her and she often wants to look through it. Of course...a very big part of her story is how Mommy and BaBa couldn't wait to go to China and meet her and give her big hugs. We took a very long airplane ride over and so on.

Two nights ago we were out taking our walk and there was an airplane flying overhead.

Ella looks up and very proudly exclaims, "somebody is on their way to go and get their new baby"!! I just thought that was the cutest thing.




We have had several babies born in our neighborhood recently and we talk about how some babies grow in their Mommy's tummy and some are not able to stay with the lady whose tummy they grew in and on and on. But I guess no matter what we explain....to her ALL babies come to their families via airplane. lol! Whenever she tells her Ba Ba that she needs a baby sister or brother(that changes weekly) she tells him that we need to go to China and bring home her sister or brother. To which her Ba Ba explains that we have enough kids in our family. lol!

My dear friend, Robin is working so hard right now to bring home their newest daughter from China....via airplane : ) ........right now she is having an auction for a personal seamstress for a year!! Think of all the possibilites......one outfit made each month for a year for your child. Whatever is going on for the month...Valentines's Day, Chinese New Year, Birthday Parties, etc.- Robin will work with you to custom make an outfit that your child will look darling in.

Hope you all have a wonderful week-end!

It is fun to hear them think through the 'becoming a family' process. Bella believe that all chrildren come from an orphange and that mommies and daddies sit on a sofa for a long time waiting. Little by little they begin to understand more and more. It is precious!

I'm so happy to hear that you made a lifebook for her! I am a huge advocate for creating a writing lifebooks. (Oh, and this story is too precious.)

Sweet Ella...isn't it funny how their little minds work. I'm working on LM's lifebook right now. I can only do a few pages at a time because it makes me cry...maybe I'll finish before she graduated college!

Love,
Monica

I haven't done a lifebook yet, and I really need to.

This story is so cute! I asked Olivia the other day if she knew what adoption was. She said "Yeah, it's when you go to China to get your baby."

Dori's Mommy (Diana) said...

Wouldn't it be awesome if every plane did carry a family on their way to get a new child? Such sweet thoughts!

The Byrd's Nest said...

I am SO sure you need one more running around there! LOL Well...actually what's one more?

I just love it that Ella loves her story. I think all of our adopted kids think that all children come by plane!!

Lottie told us this big story at lunch today on how we went to China to get her and we were all so happy. And then we drove off in our car to come home and she had to run super fast to catch up to us. Then she had to put on her super cape with super powers and she flew so fast and so high that she beat us to the house just in time to let some people inside to look at it to buy it! LOL

I just hate selling a house and leaving so people can look....obviously it is a big part of her life now too! ha!

This story is adorable.....and knowing where you are located, I think you probably see a lot of planes!!

I love that you did a special life book for the her to look through...what a wonderful idea!

Hi Michelle!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!!! You have a great blog and such a sweet family! I love how Ella thinks babies come in airplanes... well, that is much more accurate than storks, right?? :)

I will go check out Robin's link!

Michelle said...

Oh, if only every plane was loaded with people going to get their babies!! What a cute story.

Michelle said...

That's adorable. You just never know what they are thinking. This summer we were at one of those butterfly sanctuaries, and my 6 yr. old was acting so odd, like she was scared of them or something, and we just couldn't figure out her behavior, until the next day she finally tells me she was thinking all the butterflies were going to land on her because she was wearing a floral dress.

Have a blessed weekend!

Ella is absolutely darling. And I guess that some parents come by airplanes : )

Walker said...

LOL!! That is too cute! I'll never look at a plane in the sky the same ... again.

Mr.Brian said...

Imagine some teachers suprise some day if she were to say a baby comes from an airplane.
Sounds like she understands very well where she came from.
Thanks for the smile today.I needed it after a rough day at work.
Have a great weekend.

Every time we see a Fed Ex truck, my oldest daughter says, "Maybe someone is getting a baby from China today." So cute!

That is so funny. I am always amazed by their thinking process-wish I could get into their little heads.
