One Year Home

At the end of last month, we celebrated one year with this amazing girl.  It hasn't taken long to be completely smitten for her.  She still loves to be carried in my ergo, rocked to sleep, and cuddled which this momma loves! Her attachment to our family has been a dream.  She is truly an amazing little one.

 She is tiny for a three year old at 35 inches and only 25 pounds, but so full of life.  She is constantly joking, dancing, and hamming it up.  When hiking last week, she was crossing the "balance beam bridge" and thought it was hilarious to pretend to loose her balance making all the onlookers laugh.
 She is so smart too.  Having only had the ability to hear for six months, this girl's language is taking off.  She is "spelling" out words with the letters she knows, counting to five, and naming all of her colors.  I can't believe how quickly she is catching on to life.
 She loves, loves her baby doll.  It is always right next to her.  It is adorable to watch her play out her life with her little doll.  Jilly loves to wrestle with Daddy right now, and it was adorable to see Molly Kate playing that out with her doll the other night.
 I can't even begin to imagine a life without this darling little girl in it.  She is always up to something as she is so very busy.  She loves to pester her sister, mooch any food you might have, and scoop and dump whatever she can find.

She is also pretty fond of us too.  Her potential to change this world for the better is limitless, and I love watching her grow.  She has such an effect on people as they get to know her.  I am so very blessed that God has allowed her to be my daughter.  I am crazy, crazy for her.  Happy one year home my love!  You have been a tremendous blessing!
