Almost a year.....



I can not believe that it has been almost a year since Mia was placed in my arms. Recently fellow bloggers David and Amy posted that they had an antique Chinese wall hanging for sale. I love items that have meaning and I am a VERY sentimental person. When looking at the certificate I caught the word Fuijian. Mia-Faith was from Fuijian province. I decided to splurge and buy the antique piece as a gift to mark her 1 year anniversary. The Certificate of Antiquity states that it was once formed part of a wedding canopy bed-dated mid 19th century. (circa 1850-1870) I think that it is also cool to have purchased it from some very neat people who will one day have a daughter from China.
I am sure Mia-Faith would rather get a doll, bubble or colors but I hope that one day she will appreciate the piece.

So hard to believe almost a year! What a beautiful piece of artwork for Mia-Faith one day. I too wanted Oivia to have something from her province one day and came home with a silk print. Great find Shelly!

Mia looks so happy in all her pictures. It's hard to believe it's almost 1 year.

She will appreciate that wall hanging someday.

Oh, I love it and someday so will Mia-Faith. It will be very special to her.
I was just telling my friend that I had a dream I was receiving a fu baby. She said thats where my older daughter is from. ( I didn't know what a fu was) Now I do. How fun she is from there too.

My BIL is also from Fujian.In fact if you go to NY China town most of the Chinese there are Fujianese.
Mia is beautiful as always!

Happy one year!!!
RE: my blog..hehe yes musical beds, we have them here too.
Ferberize= letting them cry it out for the first couple times going to bed,(while checking up on them every five minutes or so with no eye contact) so they learn to self sooth,it's not too much fun for Mommy or Baby for the first couple times! But it works!
