Happy Birthday, Grace!

(Taiwan Schmaiwan! It’s no secret that I’m not into politics, but in addition to 95% of the China bloggers covering the election, the mainstream media is too.)

  1. I noticed ur little sister’s hair’s darker than Amy’s and yours; now I see she’s born with dark hair.

    Look at you two, so cute! Was it a sofa or something where you were seated? Looks like the foot of a mountain for you, LOL!

    Happy birthday to Grace!

  2. Yes! Resist being forced to talk about Taiwan. Having a topic jammed down your throat by the blogging community sucks. Plus, from what I have read so far, very few bloggers have a clue about Taiwan, its politics, or March 20th’s implications on a regional scale.

    Happy B-Day Grace!!!

    Happy Birthday again, Grace! Hope you & Amy (John’s other sister) have a fun, safe, weekend jaunt to Atlanta. John is holding Grace in our big old Lazy-Boy rocker, which served as my nursing chair for all three babies.

  4. Today is your Birthday
    That’s what I’ve been told
    And so that will make you
    Just one more year old
    There’s a cake with some candles and they’re all lit for you…
    and everyone’s singing
    Happy Birthday to You!!!!

    Love Your Cousin,

    Happy Birthday @_@!!

    They are both very cute…( The boy and the girl)

  6. rainbow, we were all born w/ very dark hair, and all of us were blonde as toddlers. grace’s hair just darkened more than john’s or mine has (and she has red undertones, whereas john and i have a more ashy hair color).

    Happy Birthday, Grace!!


  7. Oic, Amy =]

    I talked with my American friend about hair once or twice. Compared with you, we Chinese’s hair has much less colors, normally black and then white when growing old. But today millions of people dye or bleach their hair so we can see any color around, or even more than two on one head, not scarce!
