February Update - Baby Lam!!!

We have a new baby!!!! On February 6, 2008, Zar Zar gave birth to That That Nai (pronounced Tat Tat Nay). Mom and baby are all doing fine. They came home from the hospital the following day, and the girls are delighted with their new sister. We've been able to provide a few basics such as a crib and some diapers, etc. Jill learned that when That That Nai is visiting her grandparents' apartment, she is sleeping in the doll crib we had found and brought over for the girls to play with.

NoSa has a new job....Hurray!!! He now works at the Lee Lee Oriental Supermarket in Chandler. His hourly wage is about the same, but he doesn't have to get up as early to take two buses like he did for his old job, and it seems that he has steadier work hours, which is really nice for him. If it's sold in Asia, this mega-store likely stocks it. Opened in 1990 by a Cambodian refugee (how encouraging for our refugees to see how well refugees can do in America), Lee Lee specializes in mainstream foods, such as soy sauces, noodles, rice and sesame seeds, along with the unfamiliar. The market's seafood counter, with barracuda, anchovies and live catfish, and its sprawling produce section, with daikon radishes the size of footballs, have no match. There are many languages spoken there and apparently someone keeps thinking NoSa should speak Indian (he was laughing at that joke).

That That (pronounce that Tat) is a beautiful baby. She is so blessed to be born in this environment.
