Six Glorious Months

Dearest Anna Mei,
Six months ago you woke up in a crib in an orphanage in China for the last time.  You rode in a van nearly an hour and were given to me.  You dear, sweet, baby, are an incredible gift from the Lord. You fill my days with joy and laughter.  You are smart, saucy, bossy, and compassionate.  Your smile lights up our home.  You love to be rocked and held.  You love to play pretend, carry your baby dolls, and cook with momma.  You can't get enough of Elmo and love your big sister Emily best.
 You still pick up your bowl and drink your oatmeal in the morning.  You love to eat everything, but pizza makes you pat your belly and say "YUM Good!".  You are a grazer and prefer to eat from your snack bowl all day long when momma lets you.  You also insist on having yogurt and applesauce on your plate, even though you don't like them, just because Jillian has them on her plate.  You want everything to be even and square.
When you smile, your eyes disappear.  You are all about hair bows these days, but don't like to leave them in long after they are placed for the day.  You love to sing, dance, and be the center of the attention in our family.  You are talking up a storm and are never, never quiet except when we are in big crowds.  You are most comfortable at home or in groups of people you know well.  I love you with everything I am and am grateful for every moment in the last six months as you continue to become mine.  You are a precious gift.  I know the Lord has big plans for your life sweet girl and I pray for your salvation daily.  I love that you already play your little instruments and have me sing our praise God in the morning song!  May all the days of your life be spent praising Him who brought you to us and loves you more than you could ever imagine.
