my passion in life- Reece's Rainbow

most of you know how Reece's Rainbow has really touched my life. Maybe I have asked you to help me before. I am asking you to help me again. Only this time, all it takes is a few clicks of your mouse. American Express is giving away 1.5 million dollars to a deserving agency. Reece's Rainbow is in the running, but they need US to get the clicks to help them win. This is the power of votes, plain and simple. 1.5 million bucks would mean ONE HUNDRED kids coming home. Kids like Ava, Emma & Micah, Aleksa (who so touched my heart, I wanted to adopt him, he came home a few months ago to a WONDERFUL family), and Grifyn & Xander. These children have just BLOSSOMED in their new families, and their lives are no more worth saving then all the many other children there waiting. PLEASE take the time to vote...right now...dont put it off. If every one of you votes, and tells 2 friends, we could win this. So many times we are sent things to sign or many times can we truly save a HUNDRED lives...of children? This matters, it is within our reach. Please take the time right now to go sign. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Michelle

I'd like to tell you about a project I saw on Members Project. It's called "Save an Orphan with Down syndrome," and with your support it could get funding from American Express. To nominate this project for potential funding, please go to Save an Orphan with Down syndrome

Members Project is an exciting initiative that brings people together to make a difference in the world. It's simple. People go online to share ideas for projects — and ultimately vote on which projects will share $2.5 million in funding from American Express.

In 2007, Members Project provided clean drinking water to children all across Africa. What will Members Project do this year? The decision is yours. Please nominate this project.

is starting to crawl! This little turkey is motoring!! Aislynn loves to stand and walk holding fingers, loves Ritz crackers, HATES when her Mommy puts her down, LOVES Kristin and Jesse,

and is into everything. She loves it when Ciarra plays with her.

She has discovered electric wires. She is also sporting a little bruise on her forehead, Auntie Chelle's house is NOT yet babyproofed. I saw an exersaucer at a yard sale yesterday, been looking everywhere for a good used one or a jumperoo to contain this little spitfire when she visits, but JUST as I stopped my car and opened the door, some little old lady scoffed it up and ran off with it. Argh. Wishing I was rich, Ide go buy a new one, but alas, I am yardsale bound once again today. Need to get her up off the floor a little, shes wayyy too easy for doggie licking. :)

I did find some cute little clothes at the yard sale, though.

pink and fluffy, and a LITTLE bit small. But she sure is cute, huh?

she has begun sitting independently now, but you have to put her there first lol. She can almost go from crawl to sit, not quite. She is commando crawling a lot, up on her hands and knees some, but mostly rocking or throwing herself forward. Almost 7 months old, time has flown.
