I have the all important job of keeping the wall up. My Tee Tee took a video. Disregard the dialogue my family is LOONY :) My Mommy tossed me that teddy bear (I think it was a toss but I wonder...) My mother calls me Lulabell, I don't know why but I have a LOT of names!!! The jingle noise you hear, it took me a while to get used to that.... its my Cambodian Anklet that is said to ward off evil spirits. I wear it all the time!!!
On Saturday, my favorite Aunt Rose -- the one I'm named after, hosted a Meet and Greet in my honor!!!!! It was my first party. There was lots of yummy food, I couldn't really eat it but Grandma Margaret made sure to sneak me some! Here are the pictures
I'm gonna try to write somethin every day of November and all the way up to my birthday just like mommy!!!!
Yesterday was Halloween. I had TWO parties. One at my Aunt Roses House. A meet and greet and I got presents, the other one at Tee Tee Alison's and I had potatoes and cake!!! It was very fun and I was a bumble bee!!!!
I am patiently waiting because Mommy is on a jet plane. I think she's going to stop over in Dubai for a few days and I hear that she's enjoying crown and cokes until she gets here. I will post pictures when I meet her and tell you all about it!!!
I was born Lulako Daniso, in the Sidama region of Ethiopia. They say I was born on December 3, 2008, but are not too sure, I wasn't born in the hospital. My first mommy and daddy would have loved to be my only mommy and daddy but God has a different plan. See my first daddy Daniso Wakayo died before I was born. He died from illnesses caused by poor sanitation and digesting dirty water. It was a very sad time for my mommy and it made her very ill with worry. My first mommy's name is Aster Debiso. I was only 24 days young when she died. I wasn't left alone. I have a sister and 3 brothers!!! My uncle Karfafa Wakayo tried very hard to keep me with him, to honor his brother Daniso. But I became very ill, because it was hard to get milk and there was no formula and so with a heavy heart he took me to an orphanage to be cared for.
I was very tiny when I came to the Gladney care center on March 2nd, 2009. I only weighed 7 lbs. I had several health issues, but while in Gladney's care, I feel much much better.
On April 9th, I got a new mommy!!!!!!
