~Wow, It's Been Awhile~

Since the last post we have been through spring and summer, and now it's almost fall and our baby girls 4th birthday. She has everything all planned out lol, from the cake all the way to the kind of party she wants. She also knew exactly who she wants to be for halloween: Sleeping Beauty, so off to the Disney store we went and her gown is now proudly hanging in her room complete with her crown of course! Zo is changing so much, from a beautiful baby into a beautiful little girl :) Enjoy the pictures!

We just returned from a fantastic girls week at the "Happiest Place On Earth"....It was amazing! We had a blast. Z was absolutely mesmerized by everything there. The big hit was breakfast with the Princesses! My little girls face could not have lit up any more once she saw them all in person. Like they say pictures are worth a million words so we will let the pictures do the talking!

How fun that we celebrated Chinese New Year and Valentines Day at the same time! Our Chinese celebration started the night before at a new Chinese restaurant that is not even open yet. We felt very honored to be invited to their celebration as they are friends of my Dads. It was so much fun and took us right back to China. Super friendly, loved hearing the language being spoken again and all authentic food...not like we eat here normally. For that few hours we felt like we were back in our daughters birth country. The fun went on until after midnight. The next day was heart day and our local FCC get together. We always have so much at this. They have crafts, group pictures of all the kids, shopping, eating and a dragon dance which Z actually was a part of this year. She is really coming out of her shell. She is so sweet and loving and always smiling, happy all the time. I know it has been quite some time since I posted last so I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Our baby girl is 3!!! She loved her "DAY", she talked about it for weeks...picked out her princess decorations, her tinkerbell cake and balloons! We started the day out with Birthday pictures which she just loves doing, she gets in front of the camera and smiles and twirls and absolutely lights up the room, the pictures are beautiful! We then had lunch, picked up her balloons, came home and decorated, went to Big Brothers football game, came back and celebrated with family, pizza, cake and presents :) She is a beautiful, wonderful, loving and sweet little girl! She talks from morning to night (and sings), dances, loves to read her books (and be read to, which we do regularly), color and paint and just makes everyone smile and laugh! I love watching her grow and change and try new things. She is so precious and a true blessing to us!

~GOTCHA DAY~ 2 year anniversary

Last week was our gotcha day anniversary, 2 years already. I remember the very first moment I saw our baby girl, she was crying so hard it broke my heart. I wanted to hold her and comfort her and make everything all better for my precious little one. After pictures were taken and the paperwork was signed, I did exactly that..I took her to our room for a bath and some snuggle time, she played with toys and laughed and I just stared at her, this was our daughter..we had waited so long and here she was with me and in my arms finally! My heart could not have been any happier or more full of love. She is an absolute blessing. Everyday she amazes us with something new, she is such a happy and joyful little girl. To celebrate the special day we have her pictures taken and did she ever have fun, she said "cheese" the entire time and just lit up the room!

~The 4th of July~

For the 4th our family and friends rented out a park for a private celebration! We had so much fun. There was mini-put, a big playground, batting cages, a skate park, paintball and a water play park....although it did rain all day so we had our own water park, oh and lots of food. Of course we did not let the rain stop us. We played in the rain and had a blast! The rain did stop later so the fireworks were still on :)
